Hey folks. I have fixed my camera that was previously broken. This means I can now make video content that is of slightly better quality than you have come to expect from me. Goodbye we**am. Okay, thanks.

Painting Technique: Value & Contrast

In this video I talk about value, contrast, and other painting techniques. Also I trash talk 'old masters' techniques' becuase I don't think those even exist.

New work! Very interested in preserving my past ideas & aesthetics while lifting compositions from traditional pieces in a more intentional way. Y’know?

So long & Goodnight,

Its been a journey since the Tarot deck was finished & I’m happy to say that out of the 150 or so printed there are now only 5 left !!!

If you wanted one & didn’t get one before, this is actually your last chance as I won’t be printing these again for the foreseeable future. I have plans to make another deck in a new style but the details are still up in the air.

I’m selling these last ones for $40 /e or best offer. Hope all is well, everyone. Thanks so much.

Three new pieces from the past couple days. I am very prone to over blend, over paint, or blow simple compositions out of proportion. Making things intentionally loose or abstracted but still representative feels really good. I will continue down this path until some other weird thing starts to interest me.

I just wanted to say too that I am SO thankful for everyone I met on tour in April. You are all amazing and beautiful people and all of the generosity and support meant the world to me. Thank you all.

Welcome to my page.

I don’t know what this is going to look like on people’s feeds but its a new feature I guess so why not? Here’s a some introductory words about me if you’re not familiar.

I am an artist above anything else. Maybe I write, make music, perform, or sculpt but the most convenient way to say all of that quickly is with the former. One of the main things that drive me is a fear I’ve had for a long time and that is not knowing. A fear of not knowing. Or more accurately, fear of inadequacy or being second best. I don’t act competitive with the things that I do or towards the people in my life but part of this narrative I have created for myself contains an internal monologue that tells me everyday that I don’t know enough and I have to keep going. I think one of the strongest qualities an artist can have is an unending expertise in anything besides art. In short, an artist has to know things about stuff. Its as simple as that. This drives me to learn new mediums, techniques, stories, histories, and ideas. I’m not saying I am super smart or better than and I don’t ever want to be. I just need to know. Today and for the last few I have been learning animation. I have a humble background in stop motion animation and that experience is helping me a lot. I was recently given a Huion drawing tablet and I’m using a program called Autodesk. It has this flip book feature that allows me to mock up quick animations. My focus right now is movement and space. I don’t know how to describe it yet but I’m trying to make the shorts look fluid and continuous. Maybe kind of how music moves. I’ve also been recording time lapse videos of the digital drawings I’ve been making. They are anywhere from 25-60 minutes raw but boil down to about 4-6 minutes finished. I dub a stream of consciousness-like voice over and pit it with music. It gives me the same feeling podcasting did just this stuff is a little more produced. Not necessarily in quality but more in composition. These have allowed me to combine three of my favorite formats into one piece. They are a drawing, a video, and speaking. Those put into one make something that I would probably watch if I found it online. Regardless, its been a productive project and its been fun. Besides all that, I am working, I am writing, and I am breathing. What a life.

Next week we're airing a very interesting conversation about sober spaces with our friends Brian Huntress , Prateek, and Devri Goodspeed (Sew Something Fibers). In the meantime, here's an outtake from that session in which we discuss the imbalance of institutional support within the art world. Enjoy!
