Unique, Sake, and myself planned a little paint date a couple of weeks back which we scheduled for the Monday, March 10th.  Since we wanted to keep iy simple, quick and inexpensive we decided to roll with solid black fills.  None of us came prepared with outlines so we all free style’d our pieces which actually worked out fairly well.  This was all of our first time outlining with Sugar Artist Acrylic and it worked just about as well as any paint I’ve ever used. I personally think Ironlak knocked it out of the park with this new brand.

Great time as always painting with good friends. I’m personally pretty satisfied with the results as well my personal progress in my ability to pull off relatively decent work without a sketch or blueprint.  In the past this was a recipe for disaster for me… proving we are all students of the game until the very end.

I was contacted by Menas on Instagram a few weeks back and he let me know that he was coming to San Diego soon and wanted to hook up for a painting session. I had to blow off work for a day in order to make it happen but since he came all the way out here I figured it was the least I could do to show him some hospitality.  Having no unpainted sketches with which to paint, I had to resort to a freestyle piece.  I’m beginning to enjoy painting without an outline or sketch as sometimes getting a sketch accurately represented on a wall can be challenging and time consuming.  This method, for myself is more enjoyable due to less pressure and the ability to improvise.

Big ups to Menas for coming through, inviting me out, and coming up with the Coast to Coast theme for the production.  Nice painting with you.

Ebik reached out a couple of weeks back to let me know he was coming down with a friend to San Diego to paint and asked if I wanted to join. I was glad to be able to accept the offer as I felt I needed to paint something anyway to kick things off for 2014. So as usual, I didn’t really plan anything in the way of colors and I didn’t have a completed sketch but I figured those minor details could be ironed out on the spot. I arrived at the Writerz Blok around mid afternoon and we met by Ebik shortly thereafter. We picked a prime location on the first wall and went to work buffing our spots. Ebik knocked his outline off the dome quickly and picked a color scheme that I agreed to try and match to a certain extent. Having to return back to LA the same day, Ebik completed his piece. I on the other hand took my sweet time trying to maximize my scraps to put together a decent fill and had to come back 5 days later to complete my piece as the Blok was closed for 4 days. Overall, I was pleased with the outcome and was happly to get in a couple of much needed painting sessions. Thanks to Ebik for dragging me out!  Check out his work and follow him at @ureye on Instagram.

I took a little road trip this past weekend to paint with Ebik and Strae at the Venice Beach Art Walls.  I have been wanting to paint there for some time so I was happy to receive the invite.  We arrived at the wall around 1PM and thankfully there was still space so we went straight to work.  About 4 relaxing hours later we were putting on the finishing touches and trying to get good flicks with our phones.  Definitely a very different experience painting on the beach with a fresh ocean breeze but its something I could definitely get used to.  Great day painting with good people.  I’ll be back soon.
