“Someday, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me.” .
Awhile back I asked @californiatravis for some @paulcomponent gear to make my 26” @ibiscycles alphabet single speed bike beautiful again. He offered parts for arts. When the time came they gave me carte blanche to make the box graphic. I’m really happy with how it turned out. Thanks Paul Components crew! .
🖍ARTS🖍 When I think of Paul, I think of the good times hanging with friends in the Sierras. Like the time I got lost, found the Paul van, hitched a ride in the back over mtn roads, drinking a beverage while sitting in a broken lawn chair in the back. Pure Gold! I wanted to capture all the radical weirdness that the Paul crew brings, like dune buggies, whisky and bacon, wizards and forest critters, stuff like that. Oh yeah, and sick bikes! .
🗡PARTS🗡This bike was built with parts collected from friends over the years. I picked up the frame before I knew the ibis folks. The wheels built by @shredportals, Flite Alps saddle from the @nycvelo collection, @whiteind trials freewheel, Boone titanium chain ring, rebuilt 80mm fox from @fullmetalcycles, high risers from @huntercycles, best sticker ever from @allhailtheblackmarket. Looking back over it all makes so thankful 🖤
Much like my van, this drawing looks best at 15-20 feet away. #inktober2019 #inktober #15footer

Sketchbook flip through! ... I got these small sketchbooks to carry around and not to be as precious with them. #inktober2019 #inktober #vandownbytheriver

Evening on Angel Island. The second in the series started on a local 4 day tour last spring.
Prints are a mix of screen printed line art that I watercolor back into. Editions of 35. They all have the same palette/color range, but watercoloring each one makes variations.
15”x 22” on 300 gram watercolor paper. $100.
These will be up at @missionworkshop for the Drawn Away event Friday July 19th. DM if interested in purchasing.
Steep Ravine Prints!
This print was started on a local, 4 day Bay Area tour with @swiftindustries and @Coal headwear last spring. It was April and the Bay Area was in full bloom!
I have been working on a series of prints that mix screen printing or letter press printing line art and water coloring back on top. I can make editions of watercolors this way. They all have the same palette/color range, but watercoloring each one makes variations.
Individually hand watercolored screen prints.

Natural habitat; Ibises in the wild. @ibiscycles in environments they were built for... we made these into postcards for Sea Otter a few weeks back.
@ibiscycles just launched a new RIPLEY today! The 4th version of this super shreddy bike.
This image is from a postcard series of 7 we made for Sea Otter 2019. #ibisripley
Close to home touring in the SF Bay with @coalheadwear @swiftindustries... It’s incredible what’s accessible right out the door. #superbloom #swiftdailysketch #hellaticks #poisonoak
