SLS Foxtail Club - Las Vegas 2014

Over 300 linear feet of projection, this immersive state of the art projection mapping technology VJ rig consists of 7x 40k Barco projectors and a pile of Coolux Media Player Pros. It’s all controlled from a badass touchscreen running Widget Designer Pro also from Coolux.

Big Sur is full of magical moments.  Beam me up Scotty.

Canyon Day - Portland 2003
This was December 14th 2003.  The day I took delivery of my MINI Cooper S.  What better way to celebrate than a ride through the mountain roads near the Columbia River outside Portland. The rain didn’t keep my merry band of friends down as we twisted this way and that.  Things were much simpler then. #beforeracecar

World’s Fanciest McDonalds - Madrid 2003

When traveling abroad as an American food lover, the last thing you may want is McDonalds.  Even I had to step foot in this one.  Regal crown molding, chandeliers, fine carpentry, marble counter tops, and gold accents adorned this fast food anomaly. 

Free Candy - Ventura 2009
A cult vehicle if there ever was one, we acquired our 1986 Toyota Van Cargo for a mere $1900 and it had a whopping original 36k on the odometer. Previously a flower delivery vehicle, we planned to give it new life. Part urban camper, part utility, we always knew it was going to be an full on ArtCar.  Now fully painted, this was the very first ‘exhibit’ on the vehicle.  Though they were drawn to it like a magnet, for some reason the random neighborhood children didn’t find it as funny as we did.  Lasting only 3 weeks, this incarnation of the van was very memorable with all the comments and smiles.

Dog Mermaids - San Luis Obispo 2014
Not only can you drive out to the end of the Avila pier and eat fresh seafood, you can also gawk at the resident sea lions!  Depending on the time of day and the tides they’ll be more or less active.  Most of the day they balk at each other and rest on the lower levels under the various fishing piers around Avila Beach.  Stop by and say hi, they’ll probably snort back at you!

Outhouse - Santa Barbara 2014
Trickery!  This deceiving facade is really home to a regular port-a-potty.  The Natural History Museum of Santa Barbara has lots going on year round inside and out.  If you find yourself in need of a restroom, don’t be tricked by this one, there are much nicer amenities inside the museum.
