Pinterest Commercial

This is a protest-poster I drew back in 2017, to be carried in a march addressing climate change. On an April day, we marched over the Mid-Hudson Valley Bridge in solidarity with people around the world, voicing concerns about the state of our environment. From that day on, this spontaneously-drawn picture embarked on an interesting journey. It was included in a fantastic book called Posters for Change, and will subsequently be published in a Posters for Change calendar in 2021. In December I was approached by an ad agency (72 and Sunny) about the artwork being included in a commercial for the popular social-media platform, Pinterest. The spot was released on January 2nd. I had no idea how my art would be contextualized in this commercial, but was absolutely thrilled with the results. The can view the Pinterest commercial here, with my work appearing at the 26 second mark.  

Enormous thanks to Pinterest for including my work in this beautiful video!

Kanye West

The gifted hiphop artist, Kanye West, has found Christ. This portrait was drawn on a reproduction of Bernardino Gardino’s Ascension of the Lord.

This piece is part of my exhibit which will be up at the Starr Library in Rhinebeck, NY, February 1-29th. 15% of all proceeds go towards supporting this library. If you live locally (in the Mid-Hudson Valley), please check it out!

Andy Warhol

I recently read an enlightening biography of Andy Warhol (Pop, by Tony Scherman and David Dalton). One unique aspect of his vision was that he saw little difference between art galleries and supermarkets. In other words, he saw art in even the most mundane aspects of American culture. With that in mind, I attempted drawing this little tribute to his genius.

Signed prints of this piece are available here (in my Etsy shop).

Lamar Jackson

This Raven flies high in Baltimore. Here is my little tribute to NFL quarterback, Lamar Jackson. He is arguably the most dynamic and electrifying player on the field (and quite-likely the league MVP).  

Signed prints of this piece are available here (in my Etsy shop).
