This year Star Trek celebrates it’s 50th anniversary. To commemorate the event, 50 artists from around the world were commissioned to create original artwork inspired by the iconic franchise. I was honored to be asked to participate in this global art exhibition. I created two different portraits of Mr. Spock. Both pieces are available as limited edition screen prints in the shop.
The entire Star Trek: 50 Artists – 50 Years Art Exhibit will open during SDCC at Michael J. Wolf Art Gallery in San Diego, before touring the country for the next year.
I will be signing at Comic-Con on Friday July 22nd from 10am-Noon at Acme Archive’s booth and from 1-2:30pm at Cartoon Network’s booth.

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to see Hamilton in New York. To say that it was inspiring would be an understatement. It was amazing. I feel incredibly lucky to have seen the Original Broadway cast perform, and as Lin-Manuel Miranda and others start to leave the show, I wanted to create a small tribute. So I got out the x-acto and spray paint and made this graphic. Not for sale, it’s just pure fan art and a thank you to Lin-Manuel for sharing his masterpiece with me (and the rest of the world).

I’ve been a Star Wars fan my entire life. So I am beyond excited to reveal this series of Star Wars art prints I designed in collaboration with Lucasfilm! These silk screened posters are officially licensed and celebrate the original trilogy. They are available now in the shop!
All of the posters are silk screened on 100lb. French Paper and are available in two sizes: individual 18×24” prints, and smaller 8×10” sets.
Vahalla Studios did all the screen printing and they turned out amazing! We printed everything on French paper. Most of them are on Black Licorice Pop-Tone and we used gold and silver metallic inks on a few. They really look great.
You can read the full story, see a gallery of my childhood Star Wars art and buy the prints here!
