:: CCMS x NFL Play 60 Mural by Illuminaries ::

Posted by flavorinnovator in art, graffiti, illuminaries, video | No Comments » »


This one was humbling. Illuminaries got to build with and inspire the comrades. Cesar Chavez Middle School & Safe Routes to School received a grant from the NFL Play 60 to get kids active. The solution was to have a mural to draw attention to the bike rack area since it was hidden and unkempt. A piece that shows diversity and equality. Land, air, and sea … boys and girls … enemies turned friends … just cruising. We invited the students to paint and had them vibing. Besides the art they had a ribbon cutting ceremony and a helmet giveaway. Definitely reinforced why we do what we do.

Had hella fun painting this mural for Jute Crossfit in Benicia, CA. There’s nothing better than knowing how much your artwork is going to make a difference and how much it’s appreciate. Alan and his team are stand up characters. I trust they are going to be around for a long time. Salute! To see more of our murals visit www.illuminaries.net.

Timelapse footage of our latest mural … We threw down on the music building at Cesar Chavez Middle School in Union City, CA this past week. Painting during school hours was an experience. We heard a gang of quotes, but the illest was “I love the smell of spray paint!”

Really amazing how the principal and teachers pushed to make this happen for the kids. Thank you for being progressive enough to redefine what a typical school mural should entail.

A few weeks into the 2015 NBA Finals we had an opportunity to paint a few Golden State Warriors / DUBS murals. Little did we know how much this would catch on. It spread like wild fire! You can see all the press below. Aside from all that it’s the Warriors and the fans that made it happen. Congratulations on becoming 2015 NBA Champions!

:: TedxUCDavisSF Redefining Normal Graphic ::

Posted by flavorinnovator in art | No Comments » »



FlavorInnovator recently designed the main graphic/identity for the TedxUCDavisSF event in San Francisco that happened on May 17, 2015 at the Regency Ballroom. The theme was Redefining Normal. With that I took some cliches and incorporated them into a vintage collage. The Tedx event was a success!


:: Illuminaries Gym Mural in The Villages, Florida ::

Posted by flavorinnovator in art, graffiti, illuminaries | No Comments » »

We made a trip to The Villages, Florida to paint a gym for seven awesome adopted kids. Crazy story of how we ended up there. Tiger Wood’s charity had an auction where Tim set up an Illuminaries mural for bid. Someone bought it. Flew us out. We painted.

The Villages itself and the ranch we were on was wild. The kids had it good. I’m talking acres of land in a lavish golf community, 20 horses, their own 5,000 sq ft gym, own school, pool, plane hangar, playground, and some generous parents. ‪#‎illuminaries‬ is for the kids.

Big ups to Ashrok AloveSupreme and Erock for all the help!

I met this cat @thelikklerudeboi online and reached out to him to pair his music with my design. When he leaked me this album so I could create the artwork I knew it would be effortless. Rarely anything is except the shit we are truly passionate about.

This album is fire. I really grinned and smiled when I listened to it. Like when I first heard Nas’s Illmatic or Blu’s Below The Heavens. Heavy rotation.

Video of my design process below.
