Happy 50th Hello Kitty, you old so and so!

The painting I made for Hello Kitty arrived safely in LA and is Miami bound now! The show looks like its going to be gangbusters, I'll be there in espiritu! Its an honor to be hanging on the wall in the midst of such great company - so many huge names but i've got to say, to be in an exhibition with one of my heroes, Mark Mothersbaugh, is pretty much the coolest fuckin' thing ever:

I dreamt last night that I owned this very van. In the dream it had another band of white along the base, a diamond shaped window towards the back and was parked in a sunset light drenched parking lot. My mom had taken the grill off and was scrubbing under it. I looked at her and said, "you know I could really use your help getting the mattress in the back" to which she replied "of course and I have a sheepskin rug for you to put on top and then you'll be good to go".
Thanks mom. Dream help. Mom, you're not my dream girl, you're my dreams come true girl.

Hola Gato

If I Needed Someone
Acrylic on board

I made this piece for Hello Kitty's 50 year anniversary show, Small Gift at Basel Miami. 
I still can not believe that I was asked to participate.  What a crazy and hilarious once in a lifetime opportunity to do something for the Kitty.
There will be prints available in their pop up shop, so if you find yourself in Miami, be sure to check out the show and grab a limited edition print of this handsome man. I think he looks like a Cody.

Not too good for drinkin'...
