The Journey

Andersonville Midsommarfest 2019

Andersonville Midsommarfest 2019

  I was a vendor at Andersonville Midsommarfest this past weekend selling my custom Chicago themed apparel and can't believe I never participated in this event before. I sold a lot of my designs and received so many positive compliments. I can't describe how good it makes me feel when I hear comments like, "I think you have the best designs here." I don't take this kindness for granted and really appreciate the support.  This neighborhood has such a strong appreciation for artists and I enjoyed answering questions about the meaning behind my work and what inspired me to create it, which...

Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th

(Pictured above is my older "Killin' 'Em" t-shirt design version) Happy Friday the 13th! Like Jason Voorhees, my sold out "Killin' 'Em" design will be making a return. I've learned a few things as far as design goes since I created this piece a few years back and felt that I could make some improvements to the overall visual aesthetic of the design. I'll be debuting the new version along with some other new designs of mine at Wicker Park Fest coming up this July 27, 28, 29. If you're available, be sure to stop by! I'm excited to bring it...

Custom Design for a Professional Athlete

Custom Design for a Professional Athlete

This past Labor Day weekend was pretty crazy to say the least. A friend reached out to me on Wednesday asking if I could fulfill a custom tank design order for him and his friends in only 2 days to be worn for Saturday of the AVP beach volleyball tournament at Oak St Beach (most businesses need about 1-2 weeks to fulfill such an order). This tank design would be created in support of his friend he went to college with. His friend is 6'8" professional beach volleyball player Stafford Slick. After hearing what the design request was, I knew it would be...

The Godfather of House Music

The Godfather of House Music

With the electronic dance music scene still popular (reaching a $7+ billion dollar valuation) and countless music festivals (some with an average attendance of 200,000+) still growing to this day, it's hard to not come across House Music. As popular as it is, not many people know where and who started it. This genre all started here in Chicago in the early 80's at a club called the Warehouse and the man who helped start it all was the late Frankie Knuckles. The Warehouse would help create the House Music movement that would later reach the entire world. The genre became so...

Meeting Lana Wachowski

Meeting Lana Wachowski

On Christmas Eve, I rolled out of bed in the morning to grab a few things at the store and was lucky enough to meet Chicago native, film/TV director, screenwriter, producer, comic book writer and publisher, Lana Wachowski. She is one of the creative minds behind The Matrix, Sense 8, and V for Vendetta just to name a few. Living in Chicago my entire life, you don't really get to see famous people ever. I was very fortunate to bump into and exchange a few words with a creative genius. I hope to one day produce work that can impact the world like...
