Nothing quite like starting off the new year with a bang! Thrilled to announce the launch of a site for a comic project my brother and I have been work-shopping and refining for the past while (feels like forever). Check out the website below and feel free to follow the progress on social media for a behind the scenes look.
Orphans of the Impact Winter
Very excited to have some of my newer works in the upcoming show Selective Memory at Brooke Lanier Fine Art here in Philly. Looking forward to sharing the walls with some other very talented artists. The opening reception promises to be a good time so come on by and say hey.

Good heavens it's been too long since I last updated this site. Heavens I tell ya! Got some new paintings up here on the site so go ahead and treat yourself with a couple mouse clicks and go exploring over in the current works section.
Also, if you happen to notice you are wandering around at Comic Con in San Diego and fancy getting a drink, coffee, or some snacks feel free to reach out as I am always one for drinking and snacking (not so much coffee though but hey, it's a social thing).
More work to come soon so keep those peepers peeped...
Pretty pumped to announce I will be taking part in an upcoming pop-up show in Crown Heights. Couldn't be happier to be alongside some extremely talented artists as we explore the current state of things here in the states. So if you find yourself in Brooklyn and hungry to eat up some art with those eyeballs, come on over and find us. The opening promises to be a bang-em-up good time.

Now I know it's been far too long since I sent out any news or an update but, I assure you, that is for good reason. You see, for the past 6 months or so my brother and I have been collaborating on a comic miniseries titled Orphans of the Impact Winter and the first issue is so near completion you can almost taste the shattered moon in the night sky. More news is sure to follow but, for now, allow yourself to wet the appetite with the below Images.
After being a part of their 75th Regional exhibition, I am happy to announce that my work will again be featured at The Arnot Art Museum in their upcoming show "23 Pairs."
