I’ve been trying to get more into the iPad and #procreate with some moderate success. I really enjoy sketching and then watching it all come to life. Primarily use a slightly modified Technical Pen, the Technical Pencil, and the Soft Brush for everything. What’s your favorite brushes in Procreate?
This one is for the homie @flashyken - go check his IG out, he just posted a design that is completely bonkers, love all his work. And a standup guy 😍

I’m horrible at the algorithm but I was super hyped to link up with the homie @we_are231 while on a quick stay in Phoenix. We have so many mutual friends, had to give love to the king #ridle for the birthday shout.
Procreate sketch for reference to the finished piece. I think we did these in about 2-2.5hrs to beat the sun setting in the hood. Good times with good people.

I’m very grateful to all of the people that have supported us the last couple of years. From clients to friends, collaborators and referrals, other artists and galleries, writers and everyone in between. Thank you all and looking forward to continuing on this path in the new year!
The last month I have been working in the studio a bit and assembling enough pieces for a show. I’ll try to post more frequently; some of them are NSFW so I always get a bit self conscious posting them on social media. Let me know if you think I should just post them anyway!

One of my favorite projects so far; amazing clients and their team, great engagement with the community, and everything just went super smoothly. Thank you all involved! @goodboygems mostly did the left and I mostly did the right, but we added bits and things to each side. Thank you @waterfrontpgh for everythinggggg!
Come out this Friday at 11a for a ribbon cutting of this mural; painted on Barnes & Noble in the Waterfront. Here’s a blurb about the whole thing:
This lively and colorful 156’x20’ mural is much more than its scale and excitement. Painted by Shane Pilster and Max Gonzales, this mural holds many references to Homesteads present and past. From the energetic colors and stars coming from Betty Davis, to the explosive pouring of steel; this scene depicts our communities history as an industry town and a music and technology hub. As Homestead continues to grow and change, it will always hold praise and value to its origins. Artists Max and Shane also hold this historical knowledge close to heart as part of Rivers of Steel’s Graffiti Arts Program at the Carrie Furnaces. Both have also taught in schools, run workshops and painted many murals with our community prior to this project. Max and Shane wanted to let us know how valuable of an experience this was for them, as over the 3 weeks of painting, they got the chance to meet and talk to many community members and friends and family of those people’s portraits they were painting. As two artists who love to adapt their imagery on the fly, they even took on some community suggestions and imagery during their process. We hope to see even more color and celebration in our community and our artists are more than willing to make that happen.
