I was recently commissioned by the owner of Blue Line Pizza in downtown Burlingame to paint a mural and install some artwork in their lovely new space. The place is open all day 7 days a week, so this was all done in one swoop through the course of the night — just like old days I guess. A couple photos below, but go see it in person if you can.
The creative people behind the designer eyewear label, Warby Parker, are on a field trip across the states! And I was honored to be selected as a stop along the way. See photos and full story here >>
[His approach to sourcing materials today stems from his scavenging days. He visits the local dump to pick up discarded house paint, spray paint and objects to use as his painting surfaces. “I create with what already exists,” he told us of his process.]

Hey all. I am proud to announce another little gem of a print created with the help of Mullowney Printing here in San Francisco. Drawn, cut, printed, and trimmed all by hand — meaning, no computers, only the real deal here.
Inspired by recent travels and feeling like I am always in a place of either coming or going, this print serves as an important reminder to be here, now.

I recently took a theme I felt compelled to create across multiple platforms with the final resulting in a mural for my most recent push at Pow Wow Hawaii 2013. It was an amazing journey to be a part of this growing event and have the chance to make my mark. The final piece came out even better than I had imagined.

So many great artists working together for one week in paradise. Such an unforgettable experience with endless inspiration. I was honored to be a part of this year’s Pow Wow and have the chance to meet artists I admire from around the world meanwhile doing a mural of my own. What I enjoy most is watching people work at their craft. Here are some photos of such. (photos: @powwowhawaii)

So much great coverage out there…be sure to take a look. Final photos of my piece next!
After returning to a very cold San Francisco from a 4 week trip of inspiration and sunny weather in Mexico City, there was nothing I wanted more than warm weather again. With trips set for Hawaii and then back to Mexico City I have been daydreaming of the warmth again and this piece is a result of that. As well, this piece carries a metaphorical message in that chasing the sun symbolizes following what you love.

Check out my latest studio visit and interview from the folks over at Live Fast Mag. Thanks, Abby!
“…In high school, I started to turn every homework assignment into a film project and would have friends cut class, pull all nighters, and skip parties just to work on them with me. I still work with a film mindset and I am still creating worlds I want to live in…only now in a new way.” — EO
