Upon returning to the states, Miles moved to Los Angeles and wrote several short films, such as Trunk, Broken Face, and Under-Tow** which were all produced and went on to the festival scene... except for Broken Face, which to this day, is sitting on a really annoying girl’s computer. Miles did not have a lawyer back then...
Miles began working as an assistant to showrunner, Kathleen McGhee-Anderson on the ABC Family series LINCOLN HEIGHTS. Kathleen considered Miles a protégé and mentored him in all aspects of production where he excelled and took an active role within many aspects the show. Miles also excelled on days where the writers needed cocktails, drawing on his real life experience as a bartender.

Joey Feldman

Mon Jul 06, 2015
Mixed-media artist Joey Feldman works in Los Angeles, California. Feldman’s works are figurative with a frenetic, cartoonish style at their core. With line art applied to its fullest extent, Feldman’s initial, fast-sketched lines play a role in the final piece. Then, with paint and ink splatters, Feldman finishes each with a visceral urgency that captivates upon first glance. An only child who kept mostly to himself, Feldman first fell in love with art and illustrations through comic books and with Marvel pages he first taught himself to draw by tracing panels. Known for his constant sketching in grade school, Feldman would receive a special award at his grade school graduation entitled “Classroom Cartoonist,” which was created specifically to commend his budding talents as an artist. Feldman’s first professional assignment came in 1994 when commissioned to draw a portrait of O.J. Simpson upon the verdict of O.J.’s infamous trial. Since then Feld man has provided art work for advertising agencies, design firms, motion pictures, beverage companies, record labels and magazines. Including a not so flattering illustration of noted rapper Eminem for xxl magazine which sparked the biggest feud in xxl history. The illustration itself earned a shout out from the artist himself on the Marshall Mather’s lp. As well private collectors such as Jere Burns (actor, Justified, Bates Motel); Kaley Cuoco (actor, Big Bang Theory); Steve Jones (musician, Sex Pistols); Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike, True Blood) and Tony Denison (major crimes) among many others, feature Feldman’s singular work in their collections
