Painting Workshop

Last year I took an oil painting workshop with the artist Shawn Barber. This was a still life I set up to paint. I never finished the painting but took this photo to work off of. I definitely love the photo better than my painting.

Taco Truck

In Silverlake there is this taco truck on the corner of Alvarado and Sunset. They make wonderful carne asada sopes. I usually order three of them. Sooooo good. I was waiting for my order one late evening and shot this on my phone.

The spider on my balcony...

I took this picture on my phone one afternoon. It was an overcast day and I had stepped outside on my balcony to smoke a cigarette and almost walked right into the web. I never identified the spider. It hung out for two more days, until I finally took two plastic cups and captured it and set it free on the front lawn downstairs. The reason why I did that was to please this bossy French girl I was seeing at the time, who had told me if I didn't remove the spider she wasn't gonna stay over. I regretted it the moment I did it. Seeing this girl went south shortly after. Who would've thought? I miss my spider friend.

PVR in March

In Downtown Puerto Vallarta Mexico with my friend Jes. We were roaming around exploring and drinking tequila and beer. I told her to stand in the middle of the street for this photo. What I found intriguing about the second photo was my silly reflection and Jes' fingerprints on her sunglasses.

Screeching Weasel. Nokia Club 9-19-10

Ben Foster. Amazing man. I tattooed him earlier that day before this show. He got his twin daughters names, Lydia & Colette, and their date of birth on his right arm. I must have taken over 100 photos at the show. This was my favorite one, and Ben's favorite as well. He used it as his Twitter profile photo.


My buddy Sam and I set up this backdrop. We drank beers, played our guitars and sang that day. You can view a video from that day HERE.  It was March 11th. I took this photo before we played.

The Double Rainbow.

I jumped up out of my chair while I was tattooing a client of mine at the shop to take this photo. It was late february of this year and I had just gone through a breakup. So this had some sort of meaning or significance to me that my life was about to be a lot more joyful. The people in the photo had pulled over in a red zone and hopped out of their car to do the same.

The Past.

A view.

From my balcony in Silverlake.

I saw a coyote walking down the street in front of my apartment with a dead cat in it's mouth and I decided to start a blog to write down my thoughts and share photos.
