After my visit to Hong Kong, I decided to make a trip over to beautiful Japan to check out Kyoto and visit some good friends down in Toba, where I had done some 3d street painting back in 2004 as part of a Santa Barbara Sister City project. My dear friend Mitsuko Yamamoto had extended an invitation to visit with her family along with providing a 3D workshop for the students enrolled in the Kokusai Kids Club in Toba.
I was thrilled to teach while there so we agreed to a 3 hour session, with approximately 30 students enrolled. Since our age gr0ups were younger than my usual classes (kids participating were aged 7 – 10 years), I decided to simplify the curriculum and present some very basic images for them to draw with chalk pastels on paper (as it was 40
While in Hong Kong for the Home Square 3D Illusion House Project, I had the pleasure of conducting a fun & informative 3 hour 3d chalk art workshop for select high school art students from the Hong Kong area. I get inquiries from people all around the globe on how to draw in 3D. Kids, especially, want to know how to draw in 3D, so it’s been very rewarding for me to add an educational component, via the workshop, to many of the contracted projects I engage in around the world. Last year’s workshops in India proved so productive for everyone involved that I
The day after……it’s all behind me but still so much a part of my consciousness. The 3D Illusion House street art installation is now complete and open to the public! To open the house we celebrated with full ceremonies yesterday, including everyone from Home Square, our PR agency, our booking agency, tons of media from all over HK, and various invited guests.
Wrapping up a 10 day street painting event in glorious Hong Kong where I was commissioned to create 4 interactive chalk art images on a series of multiple surfaces – walls and floors in a variety of combinations. The uber cool thing was that I discovered a way to make the creations permanent, as in…
What a trip! Had the recent opportunity to create a double dose of 3d chalk paintings at the fantastic E3 Expo in downtown Los Angeles. The event was held over 3 days, with thousands of attendees from all over the world, checking out the latest in gaming entertainment.

Hi everyone! I will be posting photos daily of the Allstate Hall of Fame Tribute chalk mural on my Flickr page
As some of you may know, I’ve recently returned from a rather exhilarating and adventurous trip to India where I participated at Antaragni Festival, IIT Kanpur as a guest featured artist. As part two of my India blog entries, this article focuses on the second phase of my trip, which was a 3D street painting workshop tour of prominent art colleges and universities throughout the country, sponsored generously by the American Center through the US Consulate in New Delhi.
Having worked with the US Consulate office in Mumbai last year in a similar capacity, I was invited by Aruna Dasgupta and her team to develop and demonstrate a 3D street painting workshop for local high school, college level and professional artists in New Delhi at the Habitat Center. The workshop was held over 3 days with morning and afternoon sessions which provided students with the opportunity to learn how to make street paintings and to delve into the mechanics behind basic 3D techniques. more…
