The Phone Booth Gallery Live Paint was a ton of fun! I got to paint with some friends. The work from Saturday night's event will be on display for the duration of the Dave Rankin show. If you're into it, stop by PBG and check it out! My painting was won by talented artist and cool dude David Coyne (pictured below with thumbs up).

Hey friends! Got some good news and fun stuff coming up. If you’re in Long Beach this weekend, stop by Phone Booth Gallery on Saturday from 5-10 for the opening reception of Dave Rankin’s “Sea, Snakes, and Spikes.” PBG is hosting a Live Painting & Art Raffle at the same time. A $5 ticket could win you a fresh, original painting from one of 7 local artists (one of them: meeeee). I got to see some of Dave’s pieces while picking up my panel for the live paint. He’s a little tricky to find on the internets, and his work is really stunning. So come see ‘em! (below: Dave Rankin's "Eel Charmer") JOSHR and Trace Mendoza. I’m super excited to paint with these guys. We’re repainting the Wahoo’s on Bristol in Costa Mesa, and the wall is….huge. It’s gonna be a ton of fun. Expect to see some process shots of that next week! We're rolling over a Jason Maloney/Bigfoot/Bwana Spoons mural (pictured below)...so we'd better make it awesome. AR4T. Chantal de Felice, lovely talented artist/writer/jeweler extraordinaire, is guest curating WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS: a wonderland of installation and unique works that transition from city scape to nature and worlds beyond. Yevgeniya Mikhailik and Nancy Chiu. If you’re reading this, you are probably familiar with their work. If you’re not, go look right now! They are two of the most talented and beautiful women I have ever met. Prepare for mega art crush… Anyway. Here’s an interview I did with Chantal about the show. Come out on the 17th!

Ahoy friends! Before you scamper off to enjoy your weekends, let me remind you of a certain ebay listing...of a certain creepy baby coffin...that ends on Monday. Here's the link again if you're interested in bidding on/scoring something I made for pretty cheap. I get half the money from the sale. Phone Booth Gallery live painting raffle. Guests bought tickets for $1 each to try and win one of eight cool 24"x24" original paintings. Good news for you: WE'RE DOING IT AGAIN. Saturday, November 10 from 5-10 PM, Phone Booth Gallery is hosting the opening reception for Dave Rankin's "Sea, Snakes, and Spikes" along with a live painting raffle. Come by to lay eyes on Dave's awesome sea creatures, and bring a few bucks for some tickets. You could win a WET original painting from rad Long Beach artists David Owen, Jenny Messock, Kevin Bannister, Mariya Suzuki, Nick Marquez, Ryan Milner and me. Here's a nice little montage of my painting at the 2010 live paint, as documented by my dear, talented BFF.F.F. Sara M. Lyons. She's a whiz with the Photoshop. I promise not to paint barf this year!!
