Renderings Sketch Book

As far as I know, I could scrawl before I could crawl.  I couldn’t tell you for the life of me, what it was the sparked the whole need to leave marks on paper, but that exuberant spirit of discovery has stayed with me through my whole life and dozens of sketchbooks.

So, I thought it might be a nice idea to actually compile some of the stuff from the last five years and put together a Black and White book which I’ve called Renderings, and which I am releasing with two purchase options.

Available as is, signed with a couple of blank pages in the back for you to add your own doodles, or for an extra $30, I can draw a Van Gough original, full purchase details when you click the link below:

It would also make a cool coloring book.

Fridom Kahlo-Infinito

“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”
Frida Kahlo
11″ x 14″ | Oil on panel
Working in the Chicano quarter as I do, its hard not to feel the incandescence cast by Frida’s influence. Her striking visage is ubiquitous, even staring out nobly from a mural to the entrance of La Bodega gallery.
My piece for the forthcoming Tribute group show has our Art heroine reborn as the feathered serpent Quetzalcoatl, whose resume boasts of being the Aztec god of wind, Venus, the dawn and Arts and Crafts.
In such days when the world seems intent on bloodshed and cavernous divide, a celebration of Frida’s legacy remains one which is thankfully universal to all.
Show opens July 9th | 4pm-10pm. Free admission and open to all ages. Children’s and adult look-alike contest. Art, food, music, merchandise, culture!
