Skateboarding to me has always been the best vehicle of creativity, where thoughts turn into immediate actions. You don't have to wait for things to happen, it's an instant reaction and moments later you're either stocked with a trick you have landed or you get your shins kicked.
For the last 17 years my wooden toy has taken me to extraordinary places and connected me with amazing people. It’s a culture that pushes skaters to explore new neighborhoods, cities, and distant countries, forever discovering and growing as a global skate family.
This Collection is a celebration, a toast to skateboarding. And these illustrations are a representation of how I remember the moments that encouraged me, broke me, captivated and pushed me, taught me, lost me, but kept me keeping on. The type of memories that I’m grateful for rolling in and around. For this rider the world is his road.

MY DRINKING TEAM HAS A SKATEBOARDING PROBLEM ZINE
My Drinking Team has a Skateboarding Problem, printed at RisoLab, SVA. Zine 16 pages & 12 individual riso prints.
This collection of prints & zine depicts the adventures i experienced and witnessed with my friends over the year 2017. I used eyeballs as my fun and clever alter ego, while I make no attempt to portray actual persons, I do want my characters to look like they could have lived in a parallel world. The methods used were paper and fine line markers while mixing modern technology to add color and finally print them in the Risograph machine.
In conjunction with La Esquina, in 2017 my partners in crime Alan Shepard & Diana Felix and I, painted this mural. We came with some ideas and imagery of what the city of NYC evokes in us.
You can find the mural on the corner of Wythe Avenue & N 3th street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
