36″ x 48″ Mixed Media on Wood


The voices in my head are shadows, shadows. She comes to me, to tell me what they’re after. Says it ain’t the end boy but you best be careful, careful. Might catch your tail end in a circle, circle. The ocean how she moves in ripples, ripples. In flashing lights I swear she wore old film then the color bleeds and she becomes an angel, angel, hmmm. Calls out to me like a siren to a scoundrel. And I say come on child, and I say come on child.
The blanket where she hides my virgin lights look to the sea where the cotton hits the turnpike. Staring at your knees but I don’t have the words right, words right now. If up to me my maker turned right, turned right. Lost another one but she still smiles, smiles. Black lava rocks and instead she sees for miles says she wants, oh wants to.
Stay a child, child right now. And wonders why we ever ever have to die. And I say come on child and I say come on child. Just a touch I’m gonna carry, carry. Another time where I probably shared the same life. The accent of a kiss whispers we’re married, married now. It’s either love or just the sun in my eyes and I say come on child. And I say come on child. Love love love love love…

Eddie Aikau (May 4, 1946-March 17, 1978)

There are surf stars and there are surf stars. Some become great. A few become heroes. Most fade into obscurity. Every now and then, a surfer comes along who transcends the desires, dreams and expectations of others. And his very life becomes a myth. Eddie Aikau is one. Perhaps because he embodies the twin themes — the stoke and the tragedy — of Hawaiians, the people who gave surfing to the world and took so little in return.   click for more…

This week has been a good one.  I’m very happy with the way the LIFE logo art has come out.  The show in Manchester was great.  There was a ton of interest in the Peacock painting at the event and there’s only a few more weeks until the halfway point.  I was asked by someone at the event this week, – so how is life ?  I thought for a second, – my life? my life is great.  I could see that it made him happy to see me happy.  I just met him that day, but I could tell he was genuinely happy to hear that.  There are plenty of reasons to get down on yourself at times, but there are so many more reasons to enjoy your life.  You just have to find them.

Jr. Gong

12″ x 24″ Aerosol on Metal



He is arguably one of the greatest reggae musicians of all time, but that is not so surprising.  Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley is the son of Bob Marley.  It is obvious that the king of reggae has passed down his talent through the blood lines.  This music must endure.  It is the music of the people and who better to share it with us than Jr. Gong?

Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war.  And until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes.  And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war.  And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained… now everywhere is war.  ~ Haile Selassie
