Mid-February, I just returned from my travels. I spent the last one and a half month seeing 11 countries.
It was truly amazing and inspiring.
The muse is fed and I'm ready to take on new challenges.
Let the creative juices flow!

2016

November. Daylight Saving Time just ended today.
I'm not liking the short days, but at least it's warm here in Los Angeleeze.

I just finished production designing a TV show for DreamWorks Awesomeness TV.
I will post more info and design images soon.
Stay tuned.

There we are! What happened? Mid-September!
I just finished working as an art director for EDC
creating concepts for the 2016 Call of Duty XP & Championships. Fun!

July is an exciting month with the opening of the musical Grey Gardens
at LA’s Ahmanson Theatre on which I worked as assistant scenic designer.

                               

***  

June was a whirlwind month
which featured a pop-up show of my paintings in the Hollywood Hills
with acoustic music by indie chanteuse Barbara Manning, singer-songwriter Kirk Swan,
mandolinist Robert Lloyd, and some guy named Russ Tolman. It was a great night!
Within days we were off for a week in New York City,
where we managed to see four Broadway shows and meet loads of friends for great meals.

May... I just finished a production design gig for a Commercial.
The location was in beautiful Westlake Village.

*** 

I love the smell of oil paint!
The 4th painting of a series called LOS ANGELES is finished
and it found a (temporary) spot on the wall in our house.

***

I worked on a production design concept for Collectors Cafe,
a TV show with host Larry King that will be airing sometime in 2016.

March: The crew is installing the set of Sister Act
on the Montgomery Theatre stage.



Last Year...

Yes, theatre is back in my life! I just started working on Sister Act for CMT in San Jose.
The show will open next year in March at the beautiful Montgomery Theatre
where I designed a number of shows before.

Is it August already? Wow, it's gotten busy again! Besides painting like crazy,
I just finished a production design gig for the Rockumentary
METAL MELTDOWN filming in beautiful Malibu.

Oh, July! My favorite month...

Feeding the muse time:
Museums, desert, hikes, roadtrips, ocean, art, family and friends, food and fun!
Southern California never disappoints!
There are so many things to do...
It's great to finally have some time to play tourist in my own town!

Back in 2014

A line is a dot that went for a walk.
Paul Klee said that and I decided to pick up the brush again,
painting a series dedicated to the city I love, Los Angeles.
