His most recent mural, popular for selfies, was unveiled in July 2015 at one of the top rated, legendary barbecue destinations in the country at Terry Blacks BBQ on Barton Springs Road.

From July through the beginning of September, 2015 Terry has two one man exhibitions on display both sponsoring fundraising activities for local charities and non profits. The Women & Myth exhibition at Water2Wine in South Austin, showcases lifesized neoclassical portraits of women of legend and supports the Austin Chapter of Autism Speaks. Wavescapes, a series of paintings of the unseen energy that surrounds us in the form of various waves through music, light, water and wind.

His art (including photography) has been published in hundreds of publications, as cover or editorial illustrations, in books, magazines, on the Internet, in catalogs, annual reports, brochures, posters and feature films. He holds a masters degree in Mass Communication from the University of Texas.
