I was recently honored to be part of a panel discussion put on by North Austin Influencers. I was there in my capacity as a stay-at-home dad who is an artist and community organizer for the arts. Below are the questions for which I prepared. Hope to do it again sometime! As an artist you […]

Pop-Up Art Show

The exhibit at the Georgetown Art Center, The Cuzco Revolution In Painting was held up at Peruvian customs. Because this event was late, we had bare walls at the gallery for a few weeks. To spice things up, we had a pop-up art show featuring my work. It was fun and we got some great, […]

Music

“Music” is 16×20 inches on wood. I soaked string in paint and snapped it across like a guitar string. The dodecahedron is cut from a Silhouette cameo machine.

The second was at Guerrero Thompson Elementary School for their Culture Fair. Here’s how it works. School leaders organized for students to paint the white background ahead of time with several coats of white […]

Space Cat

Space Cat

It all started with this image. I had seen this internet meme before while killing time on 9gag. I liked it and the 8th grader I was tutoring at the time liked it a lot too. I had heard that there was a cat-themed art show at Counter Culture and that some of the proceeds […]
