What’s New?

Here is my latest works, videos, and life updates.


Catwoman Chucks

My older sister Katrina is a huge fan of the Tim Burton Batman films. I cannot tell you have many times I’ve watched it with her or just quoted it. “It’s a blur, not complete amnesia,” is probably one of the most quoted movie lines in my household.

Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman is second to none. What better way to make slight nods to her character than the nonsensical stitching, a neon “hello there”, the Shreck logo, and her mask overlaying Shreck? I can’t think of a better way. If I did I would have made that shoe instead.


Self-Introduction in korean

I entered into Talk Talk Korea’s 2019 Speaking Korean contest. I’ve been studying Korean on and off for a few years and it was really difficult at first. I don’t have friends or family that speak the language so most of my knowledge of the language wasn’t practical for everyday use. I ended up forgetting most of what I learned (except for basic introductions and how to order food…)

This past Spring I decided it was time to start over and I retook my courses, and found a extremely helpful podcast called “Talk to Me in Korean.” They have almost 9 seasons of podcast lessons completed and textbooks to go along with the material. I would not have been able to participate in this contest without their site. I study hard everyday and hope to be conversationally fluent by the end of 2019.

Pour Painting Chuck II’s

I wanted to make something abstract for this week so I decided on a pour painting on a pair of Chuck II’s. After the pour I added in a small mountain scene similar to my other 2 AM painting series.

SuperKid High Tops

Seven years ago my sister Christina published her first book. Within that time frame she wrote 25 more books reaching her massive goal of writing 30 books by her 30th birthday. (She already completed 4 others before publishing Superkid.) So let's all congratulate her on this wonderful achievement!

Here is a link to all of her published books:

Cardi B High Tops

My latest custom pair of shoes. This was a commissioned piece with Cardi B on the left sides of the shoes and her catchphrase “Okurrr” on the right sides just below the chuck patch.

Art Review

While working out the details of my next shoe project, I decided to post a review of some of my old artwork. These pieces were made in a class specifically designed to hone your skills for your art college portfolio. I guess it is a good thing I never went to Art School because this stuff is terrible.
