In 2007 the Miracle Five was invited to produce a show at the Essex arts center in the Beland Gallery in Lawrence, Ma. We created an installation called " Collect them All!" I produced paintings based on my favorite comic book advertisements. I wish I had pics of the rest of the room. If I find any I'll be sure to post them!!

In 2006 my artist collective was invited to produce a show for the Diesel Cafe in Davis Square. I produced paintings that resembled old advertisements turning the characters into mascots for The Miracle Five coffee brand. This was our third show but it was the first time that our personas became a central theme for an exhibition.
This was also the first time that I began to use color and paints. I kept it simple since mixing my own colors and painting in general was such a foreign concept to me. These paintings were very popular and I sold all of them giving me the confidence to continue trying my hand at it. One painting still hangs at the Diesel to this very day.

A while ago I was asked by a skateboard company to produce a few images that they might use for their boards or T-shirts. I produced these images in 2007 and they were colored by Elaine Bay. I sent them in and never heard back from the company. Oh well.
