East meets West

So I have returned from my east coast excursion. I had a blast. The Fuji bike show was amazing. So many incredible bikes! It was great to see friends and family. Not so great was the humidity. I don't miss that shit at all. I'll post some pics from the opening soon. In the meantime you can see shots over at

I am finishing up work for my 3 person show at Distinction next month. Here's a preview shot of a newer piece:

More soon.

Come check it out at Media Bureau Gallery at 725 N.4th St in Philadelphia. August 1st is the opening, so come check my bike out in person if you live there. For more info visit Here are some shots of the completed piece.

bike art + interview

I just finished my painting which will be mounted to a custom Fuji track frame for the Rolling Canvas collective art show in Philly on August 1st.
Here's come pics:

Painting the gun was fun. I don't normally paint mechanical things.

It was strange painting both sides of a piece, especially since this was shaped so strange. Functional art. Yeah, this will be a good show. I wont be making it to the opening unfortunately. Air fare is far too high right now. I'll see you Philadelphians in October though for my show at Mew Gallery.

In the meantime you can read an interview with me on an Italian art blog over here:

I am sorry to have neglected this blog for so long. Transition is hard. I am now settled in here in good ol' Portland. I have to say it's quite lovely and I have been very fortunate since arriving. I got a great part time gig cooking at a sweet all vegan bar nearby. If your in town stop by the Bye and Bye and I'll make you something delicious.

I am finishing up a piece for a benefit group show over at Distinction Gallery which opens August 9th alongside some really great artists. It's for a good cause too, so check it out if you can.

My custom Fuji bike will also be on display in Philadelphia on August 1st at their emerging artist custom bike series show. More details to come on that. You can stop in Jinxed Clothing for more info on that.

Next year should be great though. I'll be having a solo show over at Alpha Cult in Long Beach and work in some group shows over at Gallery 1988 as well as Kidrobot in New York.

I'm mostly going to be holed up getting ready for my 3 person show over at Distinction in September. I'll periodically post progress between now and then. Promise. In the meantime, I'm temporarily out of prints on my website, but you can still pick some up from Art Star or Mew Gallery in Philadelphia. I hope to have some new higher quality prints available soon too. Perhaps my first Giclee? We'll see. <3 -Isaac

food porn

Danny and I made some bomb ass food tonight. We're both obsessed with figuring out our diets and eating well. Sometimes we do okay, and often we give in to temptation and eat total shit. Tonight we did a good job I would say.

Avocado Soup Mother Fuckers! Avocado, lemon, parsley, celery, spirulina, pumpkin seeds, dulce, and cilantro. Best way to roll into Spring with the perfect mostly raw soup.

Our second course consisted of rice noodles with carrots, onions, daikon covered with almond miso ginger dressing, garnished with a little more dulce, parsley and nutritional yeast. All in all a good night.

We didn't forget to give thanks.

With recent news of friends getting arrested for protesting our 6th year of war I was gonna go into a political rampage and instead decided to post pictures of food....but what the hell, here's the dick that keeps on shitting: The man lawyers duck when they see, trying to "stay the course", tellin you what he thinks of public opinion.

See, I'm getting better at this

It's been getting nicer outside. I'm excited for Spring, my second favorite season next to Fall. I'm still spending too much time indoors though. I went to a bird sanctuary a few weeks ago and it was amazing. Those little white dots are birds.

Here's a studio shot. It's a fucking mess right now.

This is the beginning stages of a piece I'm working on for my show at Distinction in September.

I finished this recently for my show at The Lab 101 in May.

Here's the one I'm currently working on. I'm still figuring out oil, so I am sort of switching back and forth between that and acrylic for the time being.

Peace, I'm out

My Philly days are numbered. I will be relocating to Portland Oregon at the end of May. Super psyched and sad all at once. It will be good though.

Prints are now available on the site if you haven't already noticed. Please buy one, as it helps out my cross country trek a few months from now. I will be having a few events in Philly before I go. Locals can catch me at the Big Art Show on April 26th. I will have prints and original work available there. Everything must go! I will also be having a going away art party, selling lots of original work for pretty cheap.

You still have a chance to check out my show's at Art Star and the CFEVA here in Philly. The both come down the first week in April.

Other than all that, I'm just getting ready for a 3 person show at The Lab 101 in LA at the end of May and then Distinction in September. I'll post some work in progress shots soon. If you are interested in an original painting please drop me a line. -I

winter blues go away

I've been sick. I'm sorry. I promise not to do it again. I also promise to update this more often. I redesigned the ol' website as you can see. My solo show at Art Star is up now and runs until the 6th of April. So if you haven't seen it yet, check it out!

I have a few pieces in a group show that opens next Friday here in Philly at the CFEVA. Here's a picture from a piece I just finished for it.

I started some new work in oil. I missed working in that medium. I love acrylic, and I think I finally got the hang of it, but seriously, oil is where it's at! So vibrant, so easy to blend and so beautiful. Its a shame the stuff is so hazardous for your health. I probably shouldn't be painting with them in my room.

I'm off to check out the Scion art tour jam down in old city. Don't forget, this Sunday is daylight savings! Finally I'll see some sunshine again. Cheers friends.
