While Jay was in process, I was also working on a commission of Citi Field… at night.
Night paintings are always exceedingly difficult, but I had a blast with this one — now in the Garrick collection.
After the jump, the rest of 2011…. be prepared, it’s a long and winding road.
I’ve made some foolish bets in my day — but this is one I will never regret. During the Olympic Final, I challenged the Stanley Cup Keeper via phone (courtesy of Fish) to a wager… when America lost, I lost as well. The result? A maple leaf. On canvas. Now residing in a good Canadians home.
Moving on from crushing defeat, I shifted gears back to my Kings series with Mr. Kanye West. His eyes are more red than the devil is, did you know that? Kanye is now living on the UWS (the painting, anyway).
Kanye got some Roc4Life love.
In 2011 I hosted my first art workshop at Bayshore High School. My hair was pretty long son.
On a roll with the series, I belted out a payne’s grey and white portrait of Diddy — an appropriate palette for the mogul.
Warhol’s old hangout gave Diddy a shout…
And, I was interviewed by Oregon-based JobLab by the man — Coe Lottis.
I promised my brother Dan a painting for his birthday, so I collaged this canvas out of his expired shooting range targets… as you can see, he’s a great shot.
Oh, and me and my love were featured in The Metro, smooching it up in Times Square.
Whenever a collective art project pops up, I’m interested. The Artist Reclamation Project was one of those gigs I couldn’t turn down.
A new digital magazine posted this sweet interview…
Taking a siesta from hip-hops royalty, I set up in my friend Pete’s penthouse apartment to knock out this colorful commission of the Triboro Bridge. Did you know, in NYC, to conserve funds, we rename bridges and streets fortnightly?
Stand by for 2 of 4, tomorrow!
