Just finished my painting for the Mark Murphy group show at Art Basel, coming up in December. So I thought I'd share the rough sketch I did before I started painting. I should have a jpeg of the final piece later this week, but I'm a little excited about how fast I did this one. 2 weeks for an 18" x 18" painting is not bad :)

I'll have the painting and a more polished, not-on-tracing-paper drawing for sale at that show. If you are interested, please contact

My facebook friends already heard about this little moment so I'll share it here-- Mark Murphy came to speak at Otis when I was in my sophomore year, and I've wanted to work with him ever since, so I really can't believe my little dream has come true so fast! I feel truly honored, so thanks Mark for inviting me into this show :)

Now I'm off to bed, but next week..NY, NY! We will be releasing a very limited and huge print of my 3'x4' piece on Saturday November 7th-- more info soon on that, but for you NY locals I will be at a live print release/signing on that day from 12 to 3pm at the gallery. Check out the following flyer for the address and all the venue info:
