Here are some details of the skateboards woodblock prints that are going to be in the Tengu show on the 29. The process is based off of the Japanese art gyotaku, where fishermen would ink and print there catches.

Painted in the garage while I was down in Florida. I bought so much paint while I was home and stuffed it all into my suit case. Sure enough TSA checked my bag for whatever it is they check for, and spilled paint everywhere. Thanks

A conglomerate of a lot of different paintings, but no paint brushes used. Done on torn up art catalogs and construction paper wheat pasted together and written on mostly with acrylic based paints.

Been making prints in the studio of people’s skateboards after they have been used. The idea was inspired the japanese tradition of inking and printing trophy fish called gyotaku. If anybody wants to donate any skateboards I will give you a print!

I am officially living in Brooklyn New York now. In a few weeks I’ll be settled in for good and have a studio to paint and work in. I can not wait! I have been loving it here and feel inspired everyday!
