Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.

The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).

Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.

Some rough concept pieces I created for a Nike pitch last year which sadly never came to fruition! In this line of work you often create things which end up never being used or seen by anybody! This was one of those cases.

My piece for the upcoming Steven Universe/Adventure Time gallery show happening THIS SATURDAY NIGHT at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. 

Coleman will be out there signing copies of Issue 1 of Steven Universe which drops TODAY! 

Thanks to everyone who came by the BOOM booth at San Diego and purchased a copy and let us doodle all over it. I met only the sweetest people at the San Diego booth which bears noting that SU fans may be the greatest and I feel very lucky to share in that.
