I designed and painted an 8x16' mural for a new restaurant opening soon, Lekker BBQ. The scene is a narrative of the history of BBQ, starting with Paleolithic man hunting and eating meat, progressing to a campfire, then to cookouts, and finally the modern eco-friendly smokeless BBQ system featured at Lekker, which will be the first of its kind in New England.
This is some commercial work I'm doing for a local bar opening on the West Side of Providence. Saint Monday is a seventeenth century working class British tradition of extending the weekend by taking Monday off. My linocut designs have applied this concept to a Mid-Century blue collar American family.

I'm currently working on painting the colorful, lumpy folds of flesh that comprise pig heads.
