Gina the Firewalker print

I made a print years back but I still love it.

It’s inspired by a tattoo artists I knew back in my surfer days who liked to walk on hot coals at parties. She would drink way too much and teach people to fire walk. It was cool but crazy at the same time. She had like four jobs but was never short on cash or Whiskey.

I made these back in the day when I was doing punk rock pin ups with a Luchadora twist of lime.


I never got tired of these.

Do you want me to do some more of these in the future?

I remember the first one I made and the last time I made one. There has to be around 20 different paintings. Some are great and beautiful and others are strong and powerful.

I’m imaginary

I had this problem a few years back, I was in the middle of an amazing season of painting. I made around 300 little paintings a year and everyone loved it but a few people who had to tell me. Sadly I listened and it slowed me down. I changed my subjects a few times trying to find the same synergy and it has come back to me but I had this epiphany that I should just make as I do and stop listening to my outdoor demons.

I ‘m Jãws Blake and I paint for freedoms of the mind. I love the rest of you.
