I’m devastated to hear about the death of my mentor Allan Sekula. He was a teacher to both my mother in San Diego and myself at Calarts. He heavily influenced both of our creative visions so much. Rest in power Allan. Thank you for all the ways you’ve touched my family’s lives.
G-Dragon (AKA 권지용) of the K-Pop group Big Bang. This is the second portrait in my K-Pop series with many more planned. G-Dragon’s mix of hyper-masculine posturing and androgynous aesthetics have long fascinated me. This look is form the Crayon video. What K-Pop artists should I do next?
I’ve wanted for years to create some work that represents the images that would pop into my head whenever I’d hear someone say Selena y Los Dinos. I know “Los Dinos” are Texas slang for “The Boys” but the name still conjures images of dinosaurs to this day. When my solo show was on the horizon I took the plunge and started the work below:
Selena y Los Dinos prints are currently for sale at Galeria de la Raza.
Come join me TONIGHT at ALLEY CAT BOOKS for the opening of 4 JUAN 5! I’ll be exhibiting alongside a collection of amazing Mission District artists. The Great Tortilla Conspiracy will be in the house making tortilla art for the masses!
The above image by Jos Sances is of my Dad and I. Jos also used one my photo portraits of artist Lucia Ippolito to create the piece below. Both pieces will be in the show and I can’t wait to see them in person.
Hope to see you there!
Ellie and Joel from the Last of Us. Elements from my window display going up at Galeria de la Raza.
This Thursday will be a profound event for me, my first solo show at Galería de la Raza. Given the fact that I grew up at the Galería this is a homecoming I’ve waited my entire life for. Please come by and see my latest work, my new silkscreen print will also be available for purchase there. I’m excited that I’ve been given the opportunity to create a window display for the show as well. It’s gonna be great! Hope to see you there!

I had a little case of midnight inspiration and drew this picture of the lovely Ani in the middle of the night. We had talked about doing this portrait in the haze of Pride weekend celebrations and I’m so glad it came to be.
