1. Newest piece entitled “(De)Facing P.T.S.D.”

    The piece plays off of the emotional toll PTSD has, and how many wear a mask to shield their feelings, and hide their vulnerability. The piece is painted up in watercolor, and took about 150 hrs to complete. The military doesn’t seem to recognize PTSD as an injury of war, and asking for help is like speaking a foreign language. The name tag on the soldier is ‘Ayudar’ which means ‘to help’ in spanish, and like the ”help” soldiers get these days, ‘Ayudar’ is hidden in the shadows.

  5. In recent months, military suicides have reached an ALL TIME HIGH, averaging some 20+ per day. Tonight, with the help of my sister, shot some reference photos / made up this digital sketch for a piece regarding these suicides. The position of the soldier was carefully thought out…. The hand on the gun, and the 7 sprays of splatter was made to emulate the Statue of Liberty, sardonically playing off the notion that the freedom they’re supposedly fighting for is the force that enslaves them mentally and physically, and for more than there should be, death is their only liberation. The slouched position, was chosen to mimic the homeless, as sadly, many vets often become homeless shortly after their return home. The writing on the wall and the 6-10 on the gun are an allusion to Daniel Somers- who committed suicide on June 10th after suffering for years from PTSD after numerous deployments to Iraq. His suicide note went viral after his family published it in an effort to speak out about the condition of returning troops, and hopefully open eyes to the lack of treatment they’re given upon their return. For those interested in reading the full note it can be read here … http://gawker.com/i-am-sorry-that-it-has-come-to-this-a-soldiers-last-534538357 Sorry if this piece is a little graphic for some, but it’s intended to be hard hitting …

  10. In honor of today’s events, I’d like to share with you all, my Gay / Straight piece. I just don’t see what everyone’s so afraid of. We’re all the same underneath, and should be treated that way. After all, come the end of the day, we’re all homos… homosapiens  that is.
