BFF/MHZ/PBS/ Pocket Full of Monsters
Is a Chicago native now living in San Francisco. Since his relocation he has continued drawing, painting and designing steam punk androids, flatulent monsters, screwy spaceships and other weirdness. Now in different venues and collaborating with new artists. He has been showing in and around LA, CHI, SEA, HI, OR, NYC, UK and SF. Plus murals in Chinatown and Manchester UK.
Believing in reuse over recycling, most of his work is primarily composed on found objects or after a trip to the thrift store. He also has been expanding on the "JUNK TECK" of his creations. Working intuitively, he has been packing in more cords, fins, and adding tons sci-fi doo-dads wherever they fit. Almost as if the subject matter themselves have more access to salvaged parts.
phoneticontrol is continuing to plan shows and work with artists from around the globe. Keep your eves peeled for some recent colorway releases for Shin Tanaka, illectronics and Sjors Trimbach. Some exhibitions in Chicago, SF, LA and HK are in the works. Plus tons of marker sniffing.
