Going Back... ::: Jul 10, 2008 :::
The next time you're feeling completely useless and confused about what the hell you want to do with yourself for the rest of your life, and few things seem to be working out, and most of the interests that you used to love & get excited about have mutated into some sort of instantaneous grab-bag of bullshit, to the point that you sometimes wonder if there is anything pure left in the world...do yourself a favor. Punch yourself in the face, crawl out of your hole and onto your bike and go to a show of some band you love...and go nuts. It's kind of hard to think about all the things that were bothering you when you're engulfed in sound and wondering whether or not you might just pass out then and there. When you're riding back home after midnight, soaked in sweat, blood and beer you might start to feel a little better about everything...

An exhibition of pen and/or marker drawings including photographs of the pens used to make them. The over one hundred drawings in this exhibition cover a broad range of pens from the generic ball point to the traditional rapid-o-graph and feather quill to the modern array of jell and artists’ pens.
This exhibition will travel to Ellipse Arts Center, Arlington, VA and Lump Gallery/Projects, Raleigh, NC and possible other galleries in the coming years.
I have a piece in the show mentioned above as well as some up coming shows in August and September. Details will be posted shortly...
Scallion has just released an album of songs from 2005-2006. You can find more details
This release was done as a run of 100 individually unique screen printed jackets of tree branches. Each cover is slightly different and shows a different section of a larger image. The lettering is handwritten on each jacket in black ink and each cd-r is labeled in watercolor.
So my sister, Kelsey, came up to the city for the 4th of July weekend. We watched fireworks, went to the zoo, played baseball, saw Wall-E, and dyed some fabric. Life was good...
