"Prickly Pear" Custom Denim Jacket for @parkerpermanentmarker 
This wearable work of art started life as a classic Levi's Type 1 Denim Jacket. The hand painted Acrylic back and collar details are vibrant and durable works of art ready to accompany Abigail on many future adventures. This piece was inspired by the harsh beauty of the American South-West and the dreamers and visionaries that find themselves drawn to its painted sunsets and sweeping vistas. We snapped these shots overlooking Hells canyon at the Hat Point Lookout on an amazing vacation to the Wallowas in Easter Oregon.

Morpho - customized jacket for @starlightxvii - Several months ago my friend @starlightxvii sent me her jacket and box of inspiration and art supplies (a veritable work of art in and of itself). I tried to infuse this piece with as much of @starlightxvii 's essence and experience as possible. To me she always conveys a transformative energy grounded in a deep sense of self.

In order to convey these themes I chose motifs that evoke natural dynamism, cyclical transformation and renewal. I chose a bright pallet with a hint of glitter to resonate with the sunny and effervescent personality of it's recipient.

This jacket was a pleasure to work on and I was pleased with how it turned out, but I was absolutely humbled when I received these stunning shots of @starlightxvii taken by the inspired @electroglow 
Thank you @starlightxvii for helping me bring something beautiful into the world. I hope this work of art will resonate with your spirit for many years to come!

Hey Friends! I know I haven't posted in a minute. I've been working on some new projects and commissions lately. Here is a sneak peak of another custom denim commission I've been working on for @starlightxvii .  It's going into the mail tomorrow. I'm excited to share the finished product with everyone once she's had the opportunity to try it on and model it. Stay tuned.

Uchiha Custom Denim for @ray_nowak - acrylic and sharpie on brined denim. This one of a kind piece draws inspiration from Tokyo street wear and Japanese pop art. Ray and I would watch Anime after school as kids. When he commissioned me to do this piece I wanted to capture some of the nostalgia for those simpler times so he can take that with him on tour with @dropoutlive
