"Luv Drug" is just something that came to me, and as far as I can tell, it's original. I market my work under the name "Stencil Killer" and "Stencil Killer Art", butt the stickers are just for the sake of making stickers and having fun, not marketing myself.

Did I mention I panted a fucking mural?

I teamed up with a friend of mine and we whipped out this 8x12' mural on a wood frame so we could get it there and assemble it, rather than traveling an hour each way every day to work. A lot of hours went into this, but it was seen by about 4,000 people at a wild charity event which was more of a crazy drunken rave in a warehouse.

I have a lot more pictures of the process from concept to finish on my facebook page, so have a look if you're interested:

Sorry! The mural was 8x16' actually.

And one other thing I don't have a good picture of yet, my latest sculpture.

I did this not long after learning a few different welding techniques, and it's really intended to be seen with a solid wall backing it, but it's made of steel and heavier than you'd think, so I mounted it the best way possible for the time-being.

Some people really love Jimmy Fallon. i can't say I understand it completely, but I'm gracious for their commissions. 2 first, then these 5. I guess I never realized, I turned into a pop-artists.

So I'm primarily a graphic designer, and I do what I've shared here on my own time and for my studio classes at college. I just want to share one of my design pieces form the past year.

My piece from the "Records Reimagined" show in Lexington KY. Pretty cool opening at a music store. Free beer, good people, live music and art. Couldn't ask for a better time. By complete chance, I started talking to the husband and wife that bought the piece that night. We had a nice little conversation about street art and gallery art. As it turns out, they're collectors, and my work is now framed beside Mr Brainwash and Bask!

The piece itself is my representation of Audrey Hepburn from the "Breakfast at Tiffany's" soundtrack on a 12x12" vinyl tile.

And for a "bite it battle", I tried to bite the style of Ortica Noodles, who actually changed the style up quite a bit over the years of work I'd seen, so I chose the one I liked the most. I think most notably, the outlines of color that give it a logo, graphic design feel, throwing in the name which I rarely if ever do, and the patterned, grungy background.
