Status: Feeling Awesome!

Posted on March 21, 2017 at 11:00 AM
It's been a busy month, but I am finally home and back in my studio. Spring is finally here, the flowers are in bloom and pretty soon I will be able to keep my patio door/ window open again! Since my last blog entry, I've traveled to New Jersey, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island and back to Jersey. With only a backpack, I felt like I was living on the subway for a week lol I enjoyed every minute of it too! The trip started out perfectly by visiting a few goofballs, I consider brothers. Bobbie and... Read Full Post »

NY Waste Magazine 20th Anniversary!

Posted on February 28, 2017 at 7:55 PM
Wednesday morning I will be en route to one of the greatest cities in the world! New York City. (NYC used to be THE greatest city until I went to Paris, now it's a tie). Nearly ten years ago, I was a bellmen at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Las Vegas and I had the privilege of helping this awesome punk rock chick with her bags. Her name was Lucky. Blonde with an English accent, leather and studs from high heel to toe. I NEVER like to talk about my art, especially back then, but she was very dow... Read Full Post »

The He(art) Collection

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 12:45 PM
Painting an anatomical heart. I know what you're thinking, real original, right? If you want to do some investigating, you're only a pinterest search away from finding a few shy of a million stylized anatomical hearts online. So, why do it? For some time now, this has been in the works per my wife's request to paint these weird things. Being an OR (Operating Room) nurse on the Heart Team for a few years, she loved (no pun intended) the idea to bring my work and hers togethe... Read Full Post »

The Garden Collection

Posted on April 27, 2015 at 1:40 AM
I've decided to start a flower collection. It will not be what you think. This is a new take on one of my old paintings. Back in 2008, one of my very first painting was a green skeleton on their knees, the head was a rose bulb lying on the ground with loose petals scattered. It was one of the first paintings I ever sold. This new collection will not be as morbid, however, it will still be a little weird. In a fun way. I am starting a line of flower people. These flower people repre... Read Full Post »

My head is still screwed on tight!

Good Evening Everybody!


Well, I survived the world-wind that some people called March & April! If you aren't following me on Twitter or Facebook, it's been an interesting few months. I got married, went to Paris and recently finished a commissioned painting for Senior Art Director, Nelson Lowry of Laika Studios. Laika is the company responsible for movies like "Coraline" and "Paranorman" (in theaters this summer!). I am now working on a piece for the lead investigator of...

"My Heart Still Beats Your Name"

Posted on February 14, 2012 at 2:25 PM
She calls my name. Fragile whispers carry through the wind and caress my ear. Fragrance of a time I once treasured glides off of her skin and dances past my face one last time before disappearing. The gaze from her heavenly eyes brings warmth to my soul. Thoughts of holding her in my arms try to consume me. ?Although I am tempted, I will not move, for I am the foundation. My body is of the earth, my boots are rooted in the dirt. My eyes stay focused on the battlefield from afar. I am her securit... Read Full Post »

Mind of Perdition

Posted on January 1, 2012 at 4:20 PM
I woke up from an early grave today. My mind could no longer wander. It was on this morning that my brain was held captive by the ideals and formalities of man. As I fall to my knees, this glitch repeated itself though I begged for mercy. Like brothers fighting to the death, salt water that had a peaceful pocket of hope is now trying to earn its spot in my eye. The steep, narrow ledge was once used to stylize an infamous skyscraper now resembles my eyelid. Anxiety pushes each tear off this ledg... Read Full Post »

Life Is Constant

Posted on December 7, 2011 at 3:45 AM
Life is constant. Some days, that's a good thing and some days it's a bad thing. This was one of the many thoughts I had today. When I say many, I don't mean that as in, "Christian, pay attention to me. You think too much." I mean it as in some day my thoughts will come out of my brain in rope form and strangle me to death. This world is such an obscure entity. For as fast as a life can be created, whether by mistake or on purpose, Death comes just as easily. The Earth is anxious to get fed an... Read Full Post »

Summer nights

Posted on July 18, 2011 at 12:50 AM

Running with Riley just now; Perfect summer night weather, smell of bbq's still aflame and children playing in the streets. As I run with my best friend by my side, I start to think, "Maybe you can't master true love until you've mastered true hate"? Whatever it was, I didn't want it to end. So I ran the extra mile. I will now sit in my studio and do what I love to do. Create.
