I had a lot of fun doing this mural for McDonald's new Spicy Chicken McBites as part of a larger campaign. The mural was for a commercial where I kinda had to be an actor and paint the biggest mural I've ever painted in less than 8 hours. Pretty insane but with the help of all the amazingly talented people involved, we got it done and it turned out great!

A very good friend of mine, Sunday Ibok, died a tragic and untimely death in September of 2010 and left me and hundreds of other friends devastated and confused. When you were around him he made you feel like the most important person on the planet. Like a celebrity. He was a dear friend and he will be missed. He's with the Lord now and I know that I will see him again someday. I am so grateful that I had the chance to know Sunday. The last thing he wrote on Twitter was simply the word FAITHFUL. I wanted to make something as a way to grieve and to honor my friend. Eventually the piece was used to raise money for Sunday's family to help with funeral. Together with the help of the good folks over at Society 6 we were able to raise $2,500 for the family. Totally amazing. If you were one of the people that bought a print, thank you.

I was excited to get to do this piece Uppercase Magazine. The first assignment I had as a full time freelancer. I hid a few personal tidbits like my wife's name and a hamburger... amongst other things.
I was thrilled to have the opportunity to design and illustrate the March issue of Metropolis with design goddess, Amanda Spielman, under the creative direction of Gail Anderson. It was one of the most fun projects I have ever done. Thanks to Criswell and the folks at Metropolis for making it a fun experience.
