I had a wonderful time creating this commision for a Kansas City Personalities wall mural installed in a downtown KC apartment building. The wall measures roughly 12’ x 20’. These were all hand drawn graphite and charcoal drawings that I scanned into my mac and delivered digitally. The file was then enlarged and applied to the wall surface.
This is part of a broader idea for a big busy city teeming with different characters. Some of those characters will travel deeper through this city and through different lands. Eventually they get back to where they started from.
Some bicycles in front of a statue and a bicycle shop. Sittard, The Netherlands. I am not quite happy , the way the statue worked out. I should have used a smaller nib for that.

This one is "fresh out of oven". I just finished it. Those characters im mostly drawing are inspired by my events, people, anxieties and thoughts im having. It's a really good way to get out of my system and stress out a little. This one was straight forward inspired by a very special person, when he was visiting. He, like this character, has certain vibe of a very lonely, kinda exhausted person. I don't like word "vibe" but you get me. Anyways, at the moment im proud of this piece. But I would love some feedback.
My biggest mural to date. Painted in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Hello again, Gale. I've mailed a photograph of the window with this letter. I hope both reach you safely on Par Tritus. Eclipse City thrives, contrary to Luncara's beliefs. Tell James that I've missed her. But the Jagged sets and my light is spread thin, so I must conclude this letter. Best wishes to you, James, and the king. Sincerely, Cyrus

My doodle inspired by my home city of Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Gouache on Arches watercolor paper. I have been living overseas for 6 years now with my wife. (Originally from the states) We have lived in Seoul, South Korea, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Tel Aviv, Israel, and in the Summer we will move once again to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. So this is a painting is a sort of self-portrait.
When you noodle the doodle too long, it's time to call it quits. On to the next one!
The city I get to walk about in these days. Who's in for another pizza delivery?
Creating my space in a new city has been very rewarding for me. I love coming back to this room, my zen spot.

This art is linked to my previous work. The protogonist has entered the other side of the world. A weird place but it seems familiar as this world is nothing but his consciousness and diary is just a portal which let him in here
