While I was in California I stopped at Hurley to visit with my friend Ryan Hurley.  He showed me this amazing Ed Hardy painting of a tiger he bought from Ed recently.  Its a very large piece and a very important piece for any art collector.  I felt fortunete to get a peak of this master piece as Ryan was measuring it for the framer.  Ed Hardy is one of the most important men in tattooing and has played a huge role in its merge with the art world.  He is a living legend.  Thanks you Ed.  (I think this thing was close to 4′x12′)

I had the honor to contribute a painting for my brothers company Violent Gentlemen’s first art show / season opener party.  Who better to paint than Wayne Gretzky  aka “The great one” who is credited with popularizing hockey in California, after his years with the Kings.  It was fun painting a subject matter I’ve never really painted, hockey.

Last night I was lucky enough to be a part of a historic art show involving over 100 hand painted wooden crosses.  The art show included some of my dearest friends and some of my favorite artist.  I want to thank my friend Franco of Vatican Studios for including me in such a special event.  Here’s my piece.

Think Different

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfit. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do, is ignore them because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. Because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”  Steve Jobs RIP (Advertisement from Apple Computer, adapted from the writings of Jack Kerouac

A painting for my friend Stephen
