On February 17th, I met up with artists Blaine Fontana, Joshua Clay, Tommii Lim, j.shea, and Serge Gay to collaborate on an 8′ X 24′ mural at the 2009 tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV. Jedidiah, along with the Glue Network, worked together in making it all possible. Artists flew in from all over…Portland, Chicago, San Fran….and my hometown of San Diego. It was such a great experience to work with such talented artists from all different places. And i can honestly say it one of the most memorable and fulfilling projects i have ever been a part of.
The mural was fused of styles all centered on the fundamental idea of HOPE. After a total of three days hard at work, the mural sold for $15,000. Proceeds from the event went to support Stand Up for Kids, a nationally acclaimed organization committed to the rescue of homeless and at-risk youth.

The sketch – the idea behind it being farmers (each characterized in our own unique styles) bringing hope and life to an otherwise barren land.
