When I moved to Charleston, I was inspired by a local African American tradition, & historical South Carolina ceramics, Face Jugs. I decided to do a modern take on it combining them with my Hip Hop styled characters. I presented my proof of concept painting to a local distillery, as a mural proposal. Then as projects often do, it transformed into something completely different. A local artist invited me to participate in a pop-up art show at a local brewery, and everything fell into place. Series 001 quickly sold out at the event and I am now in the process of creating series 002.
