The Creative Dad Pod, Ep. 4: Art Meza

You can watch the complete episode on YouTube here. The episode is also available on Spotify here

Be Thankful

I was counting down the days to Thanksgiving and looking forward to enjoying the meal my wife puts together. My health had other plans for me. It started the night before with a dizzy spell I haven't felt since I was a kid playing on those spinning wheels at the park. I sat down moments after it began and watched the room spin in front of me. Heavy sweating, nausea and vommitting came next.  I showered and attempted to sleep it off. I later learned that could have been a big mistake. Anna asked and I agreed to stop in at urgent care the next morning and get checked out. Anthony had been asking for freeway practice so he got it....

Back on The Blvd

Wow! Has it been 3 years already? 3 years since Mi Vida Boutique offered me my first solo show.  Mi Vida reached out to me on IG in May of '13 offering me a solo show. What!?!? That was intimidating and not something I ever expected but with the encouragement of my wife, Anna, and friends, hell, I went for it. Did pretty good too I must say. Family and friends came out to support and show love. Lowriting was in the works then and I knew the show and any opportunity I that came my way would be a great way to introduce my work to people and get my name out there ahead of the book. Plenty has happened with...

Lost Angels Children's Project

If you went to this year's Ventura Nationals you probably saw the beautiful custom 1936 Ford that was being raffled off. That build took a year to complete and was the work of Aaron Valencia, founder of Lost Angeles Childrens Project.  I applaud the work Aaron and others are doing to help make a positive impact in the lives of impoverished youth on L.A.'s Skid Row so you can believe I was honored and extremely humbled to hear that Lost Angel's founder, Aaron Valencia, not only digs my work but also thought I'd be able to help his amazing cause.  My Dad has told me many times, "You ain't living unless you're giving." and I agree. Being able to use...
