Greetings from my space. So I am way behind the curve on this one, everyone's been nagging me to set up a myspace account, telling me how awesome it is. Well, I finally checked it out, I don't see what all the fuss is about. Seems like a pretty low quality program to me. I went ahead and set up a myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/maz156 to use for networking, advertising, staying in contact with people, etc. Check it out when you get a chance(if you are interested). Be my friend, I only have one friend right now, it's this pervert named Tom. He looks creepy, and he has already propositioned me for sex.
As for work related news, I just wrapped up a project I have been doing with Rockstar Games. Their website is http://www.rockstargames.com I did some background graffiti art work for an upcoming game. I wish i could tell you about the game and when it is coming out, but i can't. You have to be a super secret level 9 ninja to obtain this confidential information, and sadly i am only a level 8 ninja. I can't wait to see what my graff looks like in a video game. I did 5 total pieces for the game, here are my 2 most favorite ones:
As for other work, I am wrapping up a comission canvas that I think is turning out great. I am also getting some work ready for the upcoming "I am 8 bit" art show in April at Gallery 1988 on Melrose (http://www.nineteeneightyeight.com/ ). Super stoked to be a part of this one, will definitely be devoting a few hours to brushing up on my old NES games.
Well, that's all for now. I should go paint, but the outside world looks nice today.

Well, i finally set up a blog. I feel so technologically savvy now. Welcome to the 21st century, eh?
Just got back into town from a whirlwind trip to northern california. The trip was LA to Santa Cruz to San Francisco to Santa Cruz to LA. A great time was had by all! The beach was killer. And so was San Francisco. We had an awesome hotel room, thanks to my gracious friends Glenn and Lisa. Here are a few pictures of the view from the room...
One of the highlights of the trip was seeing my good friend Greg "Craola" Simkins and his solo art show at 5024 SF. If you have been living under a rock and don't know who Craola is, do yourself a favor and hop over to his website www.imscared.com and breathe in his insane talent. At his show, once again he managed to outdo himself. As usual, pretty much everything was sold before the doors even opened. Congrats bro!
Tonight I will be going to the Charity Paint by Numbers art show at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City. Check out their website http://www.coreyhelfordgallery.com/ and bid on a good cause.
OK, that is about all for now. I have to get started on painting today.
