PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls Project

April 23, 2014

My good friends at PangeaSeed are embarking on an awesome project that aims to get artists into the sea and spread awareness of our dying oceans by creating murals. The project is one of PangeaSeed’s biggest yet and I am absolutely exuberant to see this project come to fruition. More info on the project below:

 

Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a ground-breaking street art project created by PangeaSeed to bring the beauty and the plight of the world’s oceans into streets around the globe. By collaborating with internationally renowned artists, we create large-scale murals that focus attention on pressing environmental issues the oceans are facing.

In collaboration with our friends at 1xRUN we are embarking on our biggest Sea Walls project yet. We’ve invited some of today’s biggest names in contemporary street art to join us on our first-ever Sea Walls expedition.

The mission of the expedition is to offer these artists the opportunity to swim with and study endangered whale sharks and oceanic manta rays off the coast of the island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico from July 20-28, 2014. Inspired by their interactions with these majestic giants in the wild, the artists will create a series of large-scale public murals on the island to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of these animals and the oceans. The murals will also highlight the benefits of ecotourism and long-term sustainability of natural resources.

Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a new approach to ocean conservation, marrying art and activism. The Sea Walls expedition will make a large impact and gain global media attention – with your help.

Do You Know Your Chicken?

March 4, 2014

If there’s one thing in this world that I know it is chickens. Because of my awareness of such I am absolutely ecstatic to reveal this poster that I was honored to do for Cibo Matto’s performance at The Crocodile in Seattle, WA. This band is an all time favorite of mine so it is difficult for me to hold back my glee. These will be available at my booth during Flatstock in Austin next week at the Convention Center and soon will be available on Nakatomi. Without further ado here is my latest print:

Bernard

September 17, 2013

September brings us a whole new type of animal…or rather a plant. Bernard is a Saguaro Cactus and he lives in Marfa, Texas. He is a little lonely given that there aren’t many choices in friends in the desert…also anyone that tries to become his friend is usually prickled. If only little Bernard were given a good home to rest in. That’s where you come in! Bernard will be available at both Parts and Labor and Nakatomi very soon.
