I have partnered with X-ACTO ( ) to do their artwork for this years SXSW (South by South West) Festival.  For those of you who don’t know what that is, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring in Austin, Texas.  It began in 1987, and has continued to grow in size every year. In 2011, the conference lasted for 10 days, with SXSW Interactive lasting for five, Music for six, and Film running concurrently for nine days.

X-ACTO reached out to me to create an artwork-centric environment using my art to showcase the abilities of their products, which I use regularly to create my stencils.  Other than the use of spray paint, X-ACTO is the unsung hero of my artwork!

I will be there with them on the 7th & 8th of March.  The event is located in what we are calling the “Precision Pavilion.”  It will be located on the corner of Neches & 5th Streets and will run from 10am – 4pm on each of those days.

I will be giving away free art along with signed limited edition event posters I helped design and create.  X-ACTO will be giving away tons of free merchandise.

If you are in the area I would love to meet you in person!!

Connect with X-ACTO on thier Facebook account to win free merchandise including the shirts I designed!

    Incredibly happy for you and proud of you!! You’re coming to my state, but not anywhere near my city or I’d find some way to meet you in person. Have a safe trip to and from Austin and may God send extra-special blessings your way during this event and wonderful opportunity!!
