Sorry to post this again but i fucked up.... then again this was the most fun mural iv ever painted so it deserves to be posted twice:
This is my last month living in San Francisco and im so stoked that I spent 8 years of my early life living and pursuing my dream in this city. I turn 26 today and i cant wait to see what this path has got in store for me next.

Painted this mural 3 blocks from my house in sunset district. Its a painting of my dog boozehound. Thanks to my brother @xolotlbass  for puttin the twinkle in his eye and thanks to my mom @dan_is_such_a_good_guy for picking up such a sweet little ball of joy from the pound. Also big love to my buds who came to celebrate hang and paint with me @travydeez @most_funky_click @sayders @riley_the_nation @mulindsi @corndungeon @lilbellamosa 
Glad i could leave a bit of art for my neighborhood before I leave. @dudewheresmycroix and me made the music for this one. Shmikes was there in spirit. 
Much love and gracias.

Damn so overwhelmingly stoked at everyone who came out to show love and support for my first art show. It was beyond anything I could have imagined. Hope you all had as much fun as I did. I love you all..

So beyond stoked on my first solo show “Man-Made Mythos” coming up on November 9th @1amsf . I have been steady working on this body of work for about a year an I unloaded the final pieces from the kiln yesterday. Im rarely proud of my work but this show is one for the books I believe its the best artwork iv ever made. Special thanks to @jasper_marino and @mattieleedspottery for helping me get everything out of the kiln in time check out their work they are legendary. Hope you can join me at the opening from 6-9 and a artist talk from 5-6 on November 9th at First Amendment Art Gallery San Francisco.
Music made by @dudewheresmycroix and myself. 20 minute jam at double speed

Heres some graphics and some words for you enjoy: 
Nothing ever grows
on old dirt roads
the paths been paved
by those who never change their ways
I've been told
that you grow old
when life's a changing 
and you decide to stay the same
staying in comfort zones
staying in a comfy homes
go out and shoot the shit
go home with what you hit
you're living in a haze
you got repeating days
it's time to change your ways
before the reaper says
your path has reached the end
your time has come my friend
you'll follow death today
and you'll never stray away
and its a goddamn shame
but it aint the roads to blame
cuz you had your chance
but you took your stance
nothing grows 
on the old dirt roads
the paths been paved by
those who never change their ways
the river flows
sometimes we all get stuck
the pools of stagnant's form
when were livin in a rut
its time to fly away
like the birds and bees
and if you can't leave home
then be like the trees
keep on branching out
always make new leaves
go out and get yourself blown
by a brand new breeze
though the beaten path 
might get ya there fast
its been done before
and it leads to never'more
nothing ever grows
on old dirt roads
the paths been paved
by those who never change their ways.

Go see that movie “monos”.

Go see that movie “monos” ...

My friends cant you see!
Were privileged to look away!
Dont know where it comes from or how it was made
But you can use it for anything 
And then throw it away!
Its worth only a little but it costs us a lot!
Were making so many we cant even stop!
Well make many more whether you buy them or not 
Cuz they never go bad and they cant even rot!
Sure its not really good that it cant disappear
And there will be twice as many by the end of next year
But who really cares when they’re so easy to get!
Give me one good reason 
why I should quit?
Because where it goes 
after its done?
Oh Cuz It floats in the ocean 
or it sits in the sun?
To pick up a bundle
It would weigh a ton
Well maybe its not bad 
If your just using one...
we can dig a big hole!
and bury it underground!
Hope its not dug up 
and never gets found
Im sure its fine 
just grab one and go 
If you have another option 
id sure like to know. 
Hate to be that guy who’s complaining about a problem that hes a part of, instead of trying to create a solution but here we go again 
Thanks to @mirandalantink for linking me up with @vroomandvarossieau who curated this project along with. Keep watch on this legendary woman she turned this abandoned shopping mall into a street art museum in order to promote social change. Check the project here: @street_art_city_kijkduin 
Many thanks to you 
And know that i have your back on whatever this project transforms into in the future

The rest of these are fun freestyle walls from italy up to amsterdam. Each wall has interesting stories attached to them but even more interesting and kind hearted people attached to them. Thank you to everyone who helped me along my way. Words cant express my gratitude.

Poor mr kitty he thinks he needs medicine
He left his home loaded on catnip and amphetamines
chased some rats to the levy downtown
cat catcher caught up and through him in the pound 
skinny mr kitty with a good head on his shoulders 
gathered a group of fat cats all tough as boulders
the crew of cats creeped through the yard
hustling ketamine to the old saint bernards
space ran scarce in the animal prison
soon it came time for lethal injections
the time to escape was now or never
mr kitty assembled his crew for this risky endevour
breaching the gates with the reapers at bay 
would take place when night turned today
mr kitty arched his back and crouched to the ground 
the crew of cats escaped without making a sound
back on the streets the kitties got wise 
figured making the best with the best with the rest of their nine lives

Painted this project for two of the kindest funniest people i know: @rubyste and @anna_yuhkyung owners of @merrittceramics. 
The second project was painted with Apple to donate to Dorsa Elementary school.

life is very simple 
it doesn't take much thought 
if you're overthinking things 
things appear as they are not
Always love in what you're doing 
and always doing what you love 
is how we truly get rich in life 
While still gettin by with just enough 
try not to get bothered 
by what other things do 
fore if you don't get bothered 
Then nothing can bother you 
Don't get tangled up 
in a wave of confusion 
others make it hard sometimes 
but you know its just an illusion 
Cuz they just reflect you
And you just reflect they
So dont get bummed 
By the images you portray
you know wev seen it all before 
And well see it all again 
So dont be too quick to judge
Wether its an enemy or a friend 
because we're all only human 
there's masks that we wear 
But isolation always follows those
who keep to one mask that they bear

Drawings from Thailand

Here’s some of the sketchbooks that I have been making recently. 
Swipe right to see the process.

They’re made from 95% recycled materials (except the bookmark with the clay skull attached to it, and the rivets). Never known how to make books so the whole process was kinda a shot in the dark but I think they are possibly the coolest thing I’ve ever made In my life. Makes me wanna have kids just so they can have kids who trip out on these old books #bookmaking.
