I love Aphex Twin's work, I made a cover of his track "Vordhosbn"

from his album Drukqs.


Released an older album on vinyl! "Music by Richard Houghten"

I had a lot of fun painting the covers while riding by on a skateboard.



Working with James Messina on this sweet New Balance Skate Video was really fun. I made the opening music.
