Birth of the Candy Lady

So remember the Chocolate Wonderland series? Welp, my friend requested candy land version- she got a major sweet tooth. Thanks to years of candy consumption and an awesome model, I whipped up the following. Diabetics pace yourself...

Thank You Stacey

Mirage Inc. Talent Showcase in Newark!

Keep sleeping on Jersey if you want to. There's a whole lot of talent and inspiration out there and I'm glad to be a part of it. My girls at Mirage Inc. orchestrated an awesome night of art and music at Mirror Lounge in Newark, NJ. Congrats ladies!

Happy Birthday MiMi!

Some friends are family and you love them for it. I was glad to do a live portrait of one of the sweetest people I know, my girl Michelle!

Showing at Macy's

On Nov. 13th Latosha Thomas, Farida Aliyu, and I had the opportunity to display our work at the Tyson's Corner Macy's in Virginia. Funny, right? I painted live, sipped some warm cider, and vibed to the tunes of DJ Adrian Loving. Photos by Angel Novello.

It's Friday...

A comrade of mine, Matt Williams, hosted a great evening of readings and poetry at his crib in Bedstuy. The featured poet was Janis Nicole (NicTowns.com). I did an installation in his hallway. Its always a blessing when people incorporate my art into their homes. I tried a different style and it came out fresh. Gonna be doing more like it.

Window Seats- The Harlem Pop Mural

So I had an awesome opportunity to do my first mural in Harlem at Harlem Pop, located on 126th and 5th avenue. I entitled the piece 'Window Seats' as if this were a scene you could catch riding in a taxi through Harlem. The video was shot and edited by Theo Hollingsworth. Please, share it and let me know what you think.
