Coast to Coast: Ize X Menas at Writerz Blok

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.
