Past Collaborations & Commissions

About Blake

    Recent news!- I am a contestant on NBC's "Making It" Season 3. Episodes start June 24th at 8:00 PM and every Thursday after that. Also streaming on HULU and Peacock TV.  

 I primarily use unique recycled materials to create amazing pieces of art. Each Sculpture uses strategically placed materials which are woven, fastened and secured, creating amazing muscle-like definition or fur of the subject. Each sculpture can take up to three months to complete and has amazingly detailed features. I Love to be Eco-friendly by using sustainable materials and taking trash off the streets and out of landfills. I also do full metal fabrication, resin pouring/castings, welding, and woodworking. 

               I was born and raised in San Jose, CA and I am proud to have my art showcased in local and national settings. Sculptures are currently showcased at prestigious locations like the Fiserv Forum arena for the Milwaukee Bucks, Quicken Loans Arena for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chase Center of the Golden State Warriors,  and over 8 major NCAA colleges. I have  also done commissioned work for companies like Goodyear Tires, Lululemon, Hyundai,  Nothing But Tires and The Sports and the Arts.

 

My Past   AKA My "Baseball Life"

             I excelled in athletics during high school. I received a scholarship to San Jose State University for baseball where I was named Rookie of the Year and First Team all WAC conference pitcher. I graduated from college in 2011 with a degree in Psychology and a desire to play professional baseball. In June of 2011 I began my professional baseball career with the Toronto Blue Jays as a pitcher. In 2013 I was named a Mid-Season All-Star in the High A affiliate for the Blue Jays in Dunedin Florida and in 2014 I posted a 2.89 ERA between High A and Double A in New Hampshire. During the Fall of 2014 I did not allow a single run in the highly competitive Arizona Fall League. I was added to the Blue Jays 40 man roster following my outstanding 2015 season. In 2016 I suffered a shoulder injury out of spring training which I rehabbed for two full years before retiring in 2018. I ended up playing 8 seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays organization and loved every second of it. I now devote 100% of my time to new artwork and is extremely excited for what the future holds.
