Mural in Australia as Part of First Coat Mural Festival

I was invited out to Australia to speak at The Design Conference in Brisbane in May, and while there I took part in Toowoomba’s First Coat Mural Festival.  Saw lots of amazing artists doing incredible work, and had a great time being there and meeting tons of fun people. Here is a pic of the finished mural.

San Francisco’s legendary Fecal Face Gallery will be hosting my solo show “Thanks A Lot,” showcasing all new work.  This is my first large scale solo show since 2008, and will be a combination of large, six foot tall charcoal drawings and smaller ink and watercolor paintings.
