An EFFEN Event!

EFFEN Vodka commissioned me to create an artwork inspired by their new EFFEN Cucumber Vodka. For the piece, I considered the flavor of cucumber; mild, calm, soothing. I also thought that those sensibilities were very much in line with the laid-back west coast attitude. Keeping that in mind, I translated that idea into a state of serenity. In the piece, a modern man holds an EFFEN Vodka bottle in his hand, sitting on a lotus. The image references Buddha (also mild-mannered, calm, and soothing).

The event was pretty fun. Local mixologists made cocktails in a Top Chef-style competition and let the crowd vote on their favorite. Below are images from the event.


Well, my solo show, Entwined Excess, opened to much success on Sept 1st. I had a great time really appreciated all who came out. The show was featured on the SFWeekly and The San Francisco Chronicle's 96hours.

You can also see the images on the PRESS page of my website.
