Recently I have been having fun taking old images from my external hard drive and applying a new perspective to them. Usually I just move onto a new piece, but occasionally I revisit old images I’m found of or never considered finished to see where my current styles evolves the piece. Here I’m using Alchemy with Adobe Photoshop to create textures and story with color and graphics.
If you want to learn I offer private time both instudio and online. Check it!
I hope you enjoy!

Here’s some photoshop process mixed with the open source program, Alchemy! This is an exercise on the power of the remix. This painting is very old and playing with it turns it into some new and powerful! This is a deliberate exercise so I can practice technique with limited investment. I like to play with the paradox of the infinite choice…just not lost in it. Enjoy!

Here I’m sharing a little of my process when designing my own tattoo design. Of course I wasn’t thinking about recording the process when I worked on the vector art version of it. In this video me and Samee Tatu start putting transfers on me to see how it fits. From here I got back tot he design for final tweaks. Since this video I got the right forearm piece put on. I will post updated pics when its done healing.

My latest music video covering PIEL at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz on 12.21.12 opening for Dredg. I also use movie footage from the films Sunshine, The Fountain and Knowing for more atmosphere. But all live coverage and editing by me.
Tiki Lewis-lead singer

The lead singer, Tiki Lewis and bass player, Jonathan Burkes are the foundation of this great Los Angeles based band, PIEL. They are also my roomates and when I can I shoot as much footage of them performing as possible. They are amazing people with impeccable skills. Tiki’s words are powerful even though she packages them in fun, party sounds. I’m honored to capture these times before they blow the fuck up! Please Respect!
My thoughts on whats going down in the VFX industry…Much respect.
This video I produced because I caught some cool footage of Dredg after I filmed my roomates band, Piel. At the Catalyst in Santa Cruz California on 12_21_2012. Enjoy!
me and my peeps chillin and being creative at the house.
Me, sharing ideas about contracts for artists. I hope you get something out of it.
What if the universe was a puffy fish? Expanding and contracting…and we were just a piece of bacteria on its membrane it picked up while floating through some dark matter?
