We were at Metazoa Brewing Company last week painting "Taking Indy Sunset"... This creation was inspired by the Indy skyline view from Metazoa's patio -and- What a view it is! The crowd at last Monday's paint party was such a fun group and their paintings turned out beautifully! Check out everyone's artwork and also some pictures of this Indy skyline view from Metazoa'a patio! We will be back at Metazoa on August 28th painting "Night Lights" - Hope you can join us! Cheers, T
We were back at Binkley's this month painting one of the classics, "Starry Night over Indy"! This was ABC Paint Party's first painting that debuted back in January of 2014 where we kicked off this fun venture at Binkley's. What an enthusiastic bunch of painters and all their artwork turned out amazing! A big thank you to Binkley's for having us again and we look forward to the next Paint Party at their establishment. Below are the pictures from this 3hour fun-filled event...check it out. Cheers, T
Now to catch up on some mural projects that I have completed recently... Namely REFINERY 46 and another piece for my buddies at BLACK CIRCLE BREWING.
First, I was contacted by Jesse at Black Circle to recreate one of their beer logos in large scale. We originally discussed painting this directly on the wall (and boy am I glad we went with the framed panel option!). This was a.. ahem.. complicated piece. I have always wanted to try something like, this because I really like the 8-bit retro video game look. The pixel art style proved to be a lot tougher than I thought it would be- But I eventually got the hang of it, finished up this framed piece, and installed it on the wall at the end of their bar. Make sure that you tell that you know the artist of that stunning piece next time you stop in for a beer!
They were also kind enough to refer me to the building owner, who, upon refurbishing this dilapidated building, wanted to complete the update by putting the name of this "new" property in bold lettering on the side of the building. He calls the place REFINERY 46, and it houses 3 business currently- along with BLACK CIRCLE BREWING and ELENS RUZ CUBAN CUISINE, there is also HOMESENSE HEATING & COOLING. This place has turned into a bright spot in an otherwise run-down neighborhood, and a sign of good things to come.. Just west of Keystone on 46th St, and now SUPER easy to find because of my handy work!
Pics of everything below, and more to come.. I have a lot of developing projects going right now!

A big thank you to Axis Apartments for having ABC Paint Party at their Resident Event last Thursday! It was a packed house and what a fun group.

Monday was such a great time at Metazoa Brewing Company and what a celebration for Charlie, Metazoa's former house cat. Charlie is now home bound with one of the owners of Metazoa and will be missed roaming around the brewery. The beers were flowing and the music was jamming at this Special Edition Paint Party! Some of the painters put their own spin on the painting to honor some of their furry friends. Take a look at all the art everyone created! We will be back at Metazoa with a Pet-Themed Paint Party in June, so keep an eye out for more details. Cheers, T

Spring was in the air last Monday at Thr3e Wise Men! We celebrated the season by painting "Spring Blossoms" at this 2 hour fun-filled event. We had birthdays in the house and even a homemade cake...Thanks for sharing, Ladies! This was such an enthusiastic crowd and Thr3e Wise Men is always a wonderful place to spend an evening painting. Take a look at the beautiful artwork this group created. Cheers, T
It's no secret that I have huge love for fantasy art and I really enjoy creating it whenever I can find the time... So, why not bring ABC Paint Party together with fantasy art? That's exactly what I have done for the past three years at WHO'S YER CON. We brought back my creation, EXCALIBUR, this past weekend to my buddies at WYC. It was a smaller crowd this time around, but we had a blast! Check out the pictures below...
WYC is run by some close friends of mine and for the past several years, I have also been the "Official Artist" or "Artist in Charge" as stated on my badge this year for the con. I have designed the official WYC logo for the past 4 (or 5?) years.
See you guys next year!
We had a Sold Out show at Metazoa last Monday and what a great crowd! "The Monon" was the featured painting at this 2 hour Fun-filled event.
