I was commissioned by Gensler to design 4 murals for CBRE's new office space in the Williams Tower in downtown Houston. The fifth floor is divided into four “neighborhoods” organized around CBRE’s different lines of business as well as Houston’s geography. I set out to create four murals that not only depicted those neighborhoods and the most well known places/things from those areas of town, but also captivated the viewer with details and cohesiveness across the 4 pieces. The North, South, East and West murals all stand at 9 feet tall and range from 58 to 91 feet wide.
BHP Billiton Mural
I was lucky enough to work with Judson Design & Chuck Sanders to illustrate 2 murals for BHP Billiton's new HQ in downtown Houston. The theme was "everything Houston" and the goal was to fill every inch of the space with detail so the viewer could get lost in the piece & discover something new every time. The murals span over 2 walls and are roughly 9' tall by 27' wide.
Stay tuned for more pictures as they come in!

Creating great experiences for the Favor Runners is top priority, and when the build out for the first Runner Clubhouse in Austin happened we knew we had to create a great visual experience for them. I designed and illustrated a mural inside the space depicting the city of Austin and it's best places, as well as a vinyl window mural that spans across the front of the building. I then teamed up with the talented Dakota Pendley to make the inside mural come to life.
Check out the time-lapse to see how the inside mural came together and the pictures below to see the space!
When Favor got a new HQ I was tasked with creating a mural that would represent Favor's past, present & future. It began with a sketch and now stands 10x21 ft. tall right when you get off the elevator. I collaborated with our other designer to develop, design & paint the mural. Scroll to the bottom to see a process video of the whole thing come to life!

After Hours Poster Show
After Hours is a curated poster show that takes place during the East Austin Studio Tour. It showcases some of the local talent around the Central Texas area as well as serving as a non-profit fundraiser. Each year the theme of the show changes and ties into a local charity. This year's theme was "Paws, Claws, Scales & Gills" and benefitted Austin Pets Alive.
The posters were screen printed by Ramona Press and can be purchased through my store.
Stars of The Night Poster
The poster was originally created for Artists for Education. The goal was to inspire, educate and have someone see something new every time they experience the poster. Inspired by old world star charts, this poster blends the old elements with the new. Packed with imagery it focuses on stars, constellations, moon phases just to name a few. Also to bring a little more new age flair, all the stars & white you see in the poster glows in the dark!!
Screen printed with white & metallic gold ink these posters shine during both the day & night. Printed by hand by Ramona Press on French Paper, these 24'x18' posters works great as a statement piece in any home, a cool new addition to a kid's room, or and educational piece in the classroom. Head on over to my store to purchase one!

I was contacted to help with creating the identity for a trucking company out of Houston, TX. The goal was to create something that took a modern twist on vintage NASA.
