"Paint the Town" (The Empire Band)
This band was created to encapsulate the spirit behind Empire Artist. It was made collaboratively with two Artists, Mike Watt and Pogo, and each side of the band represents a different side of the Art world. On one side, you have Mike’s gritty, street take on Art, while Pogo’s side focuses on the lighter, softer tones in the work he creates.
“Paint The Town” really communicates, both in the design and the title, what Empire Artist is all about. Throw on your wristband, and go paint the town…
"My weapon of choice will always be pencils, after I come to something i like i go to photoshop and ink it and color it. When I have more time I usually go for acrylics and watercolors."
When I find something very old or very alien that resonates with me deeply makes me feel like I’m connected to all of the artists that have ever existed.
"I really want to get more into Sculpture, big monumental sculpture, I just need somebody who's willing to sponsor my crazy ideas."
