Thanks to Kathryn Blackmer Reyes and San Jose State University, Martin Luther King Library for hosting a great exhibit. I am honored to be a part of this exhibit with such talented artists.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to paint a butterfly mural at Latona Elementary School in Los Angeles. This was part of the UCLA Volunteer day mural project. I love working on this project, I got a busload of kids from the 2016 UCLA Freshman class to help paint. This is a great way for the Bruins to give back to the community and it’s so much fun.
Had the opportunity to visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art yesterday to see Guillermo del Toro’s art collection on display. There were many unusual artworks, to say the least. It was an amazing exhibit.
Had the greatest time chalking at Ventura Harbor Village last week-end. It was a gorgeous day, lovely weather and wonderful people!

Had a wonderful time at the City of Commerce Library’s 2016 Comic Book Invasion. Had a good children’s workshop and the kids were great! Much thanks to the library for putting on the event.
I am excited to participate in the 2nd Annual Comic Book Invasion at City of Commerce Library next Saturday.
I will be doing a children’s craft activity at 1:25 PM, “Make your own Super Hero Mask & Cape”. This is a free event, bring all the kids! For more information click on the flyer below to link to the Commerce Library website.
I was happy to participate in this year’s Latino Comics Expo, which was held at the Long Beach Museum of Latin American Art. There were so many creators to meet and so many great panels to attend all week-end long. Some of the artists also participated in the “Artists Assemble” art show in conjunction with the expo. A great time was has by all. If you missed it, come to the expo next year. Thank you Long Beach Museum of Latin American Art and thanks to everyone who showed up to support the 2016 Latino Comics Art Expo.

This week.end I will be participating in the 24th Annuall Pasadena Chalk Festival. This year I have channeled my inner Van Gogh and painted his portrait for the art auction, if you would like to purchase this painting, it will be for sale at the chalk festival and priced to sell. Hope to see you all there. For more information about the chalk festival, click on the flyer below.
Last week I had the privilege to create a chalk demo at Martin Luther King High School in Riverside, CA for their annual Chalk Day. Basically every year the kids can sign up and the lucky ones who get accepted to participate can spend the day out of their normal class schedule and create a chalk square all day. This is one of the best ways for a High School to incorporate art into their curriculumn and inspire students to become future artists. I had so much fun, I created a chocolate donut.
