Oakley In-Residence with the Art Dump

Back in April Oakley hosted their In-Residence Studio on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles. The Art Dump was asked to co-curate the space and put together an exhibition for opening night. I’m super excited to have been a part of this event along side of some really talented friends and colleagues! Below are some flicks and a nice wrap up video from the event…A detailed look at the work can be found at

Brian Butler “Drawings Made at Concerts”

Last year myself and Brian Butler set out to surf some couches, catch some shows and enjoy a week in Austin at SXSW. Along the way I took some time to document Brian’s passion for drawing at live shows.

Shot on location in Austin, TX at Scoot Inn, Mohawk, Hotel Vegas & Spiderhouse Ballroom.

BLEITCH’s ‘This is Our Youth’

I’m excited to finally share some images I snapped back in August during the shooting of BLEITCH’s debut music video ‘This is Our Youth’. My good pal and director Per-Hampus, who directed the video, invited me to tag along for the day to document and lend some muscle. You can watch the beautiful end result above and have a look at some photos from the day below; some of which were just featured on some celebrity blog called Just Jared? Cool!
