Who have been some of your biggest influences or your best teachers?
A few big influences are George Condo, Takashi Murakami, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Earnie Barnes, and Shepard Fairey.
How do you choose your subjects?
My choice of subjects are typically inspired by sound. The subjects are sometimes inspired by specific photography or cover art. Music is generally the basis for much of my inspiration, so when I create, I start with the music related images.
Do you have a creative or artistic peer group in your area that you're a part of?
Yes. I recently opened And Gallery, an independent, artist-run space for emerging artists with my good friend Tyler Tadlock. With opening the space we have been able to foster a peer group of artists for feedback and growth. [Read the VICE feature on And Gallery. -Ed.]
Where do you go to draw inspiration?
Museums and concerts are my biggest inspiration spaces.
Tell me about a recent, current, or upcoming project or exhibition.
Heart Society is an original folk/soul wife-and-husband duo from Jackson, MS. I recently finished an album cover for Heart Society Music for their upcoming album titled Wake The Queens. I’m really happy to be a part of this project. The duo’s mission is all about love, and this project that I created the album cover for focused on the empowerment of women.
