On February 17, 2014 I had the pleasure of working a 24 hour shift with the Carlsbad Firefighters at Fire Station 1. I went on all calls, rode on the fire truck and ambulance, ate and slept in the firehouse and shared many stories. It was an experience I will never forget. It truly made me realize how amazing these guys are and are all willing to give up their life to save another.

"A Blazing" was drawn live at Downtown Disney in the WonderGround Gallery during an artist in residence. Customers had an inside look at how Viz Art Ink was created from start to finish.

This piece is dedicated to all firefighters and paramedics who sacrifice everything so we can live safe and peacefully. Hidden you will find many different aspects of being a firefighter and paramedic.
