Happy New Year

Happy New Year from Alabama - I've been visiting with my brother and his family down here for Christmas with my wife as well as my mom - the average day time high has been around 72 degrees, rough eh?
I will be back in action by the 4th, so look for some new drawings in the least.
Tonight we are drving across the bay to Mobile to watch the Moonpie drop at midnight - no shit.

Weather affecting some artmaking

If it ever stops raining and dries up a bit I can seal my latest Ghost Music Studies, but for now its cold and wet outside and spraying acrylic below 50 degrees when its raining doesn't work....

Two Days to See My Work in NYC

I will have a small tape drawing (or painting as JT would call it) in NYC next month at Metro Pictures for the Postcards from the Edge Benefit show. A fun aspect of the show is that all of the work is hung anonymously, but a list of artists is provided. All of the pieces are 4"x6" and are $75 each, when you buy a piece you find out who the artist is. I don't want to ruin the surprise by posting it so you will have to go look for yourself.
The preview is Friday, January 8 from 6-8 pm - expect to see a packed house and work from close to 1500 artists, no work will be sold that night so this is the only chance to see all of the work before people start buying it up, but since it is a benefit, there is an admission fee of $75 for the preview which allows you to preview which pieces you would want to purchase the next morning. The sale starts the next morning, Saturday, January 10 from 11-6pm (Admission is free to the sale, but there is a suggested donation of $5). apparently people start lining up early in the morning since it is first come, first serve and the art is removed as it is purchased - Have fun and I hope you can make it!

New Drawings

I've been out for a while, well actually in the studio and visiting with family. Here are some untitled marker drawings from the past two days I made in between some paintings I have going in the studio.
