John Legend tickling the ivory at Dwayne Wade’s Apollojets All Star Luncheon in Beverly Hills last week. Public Works Department donated a Billi Kid NBA backboard that auctioned for $35,000.00. 100% of the proceeds will benefit MLA Partner Schools and LA’s Promise Neighborhoods.

She was young and beautiful standing at a bus stop nose buried in a book, when BRAN rode up on “Da Lexus” as smooth as any pimp could.

His legs were so long that he had to spread them apart so his knees wouldn’t hit the handlebars as he peddled this neon green spray painted ten-speed bike. A bike that actually had the words “Da Lexus” written in black permanent marker across its frame. His sweater and cutoff fatigues he wore were filthy with dirt and paint. His stick straight hair was twisted with bee’s wax into crusty dread locks that hung over his wire framed glasses. I remember looking at this strange event in pure amazement with BZAR URN, the proud owner of “Da Lexus”. It was at that moment that I realized how much heart my good friend had. He seemed to fear nothing. No man, beast or pretty young lady. He strolled in and out of some of the absolute worst areas of New York night after night to write his name on waiting walls. He developed intricate and demented letter styles that he painted effortlessly under pressure. He has constantly Destroyed Your Mind and mine every moment he picked up an indelible marking unit. Simply put, his graffiti is smart, layered; complex and perplexing just like him. Branos is a man filled with detailed knowledge of the wide scope of topics that interest him. He could easily break down the double twisted meanings of verses and lyrics by noted rapper Dr. Octagon and then immediately go into his thoughts and feelings on the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. An architect in his own right, I invite you to take a journey through the world of BRAN US.

Hey gang! Here’s a shot of Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks, next to the back board I painted at the NBA Players Association Gala that took place on Feb 20, 2011. Special thanks to Public works Department for organizing the instillation of my work to the gala and to Billi Kid for the diligent camera work.

Today I finished a really fun job for Ser Padres Magazine, which is basically Parents Magazine’s Spanish counterpart.  The assignment was to create simple illustrations that would be incorporated into the photo’s of their April 2011 Spring Fashion Feature. I’ll post the drawings and finishes at a later date when the issue is published. In the mean time take a gander at the piece below, which isn’t appearing in the story, as it was deemed to scary for the Ser Padres audience.

 

Thanks for looking!

Not Paintings

Jessica gave me a camera for Christmas, and I’ve been having a blast playing around with it. I used to love taking pictures in college, but I stopped to totally focus on painting. However this thoughtful gift has reawakened my interests in photography. Below are a few shot’s I’ve been taking since Christmas. More to come.
