LACDA snap to grid pics

It's kind of funny that this blog lately hasn't posted anything that I've been working on, but right now I've been very vulnerable with the weird things I've been experimenting with... so for now here are some pics of the snap to grid show! I'm in there somewhere...

Favorite art pieces at bm

It's hard to see the smoke ring in the sky, but it was really cool. some of the art I didn't get around to photographing well, so I resorted to art perez's photo album of burningman, who runs a really neat model drawing workshop at a bar on los feliz.

The Desert is No Joke

I have luckily arrived back just in time to miss the crazy dust storm of the Playa even though it caught us in the beginning. It was a fascinating time at burningman, but also, I am very grateful for things like showers and beds.

On another note, this is such a cool picture that I took recently at a show that I just had to put it up.

Come to Claremont on a friday night!

I'm hosting a closing reception this friday the 18th at Claremont. Come see my paintings, projections, and fish paraphernalia before I take everything down.

super awkward newish paintings

The middle one I actually wanted to toss, but David Amico wouldn't let me so I rolled it up and gave it to him. The figure on the very right has a yellow balloon as its head, but I never got around to taking a photo of it.

I am a work in progress

Things for me to work on this summer:

Building better canvases that don't warp and getting over my fear of the table saw/ other power tools

Finding a solution to making a support for my fish collage/painting before I have to submit it to some potential show in which I have no idea how to hang.

Focus on buffing up my craftsmanship and technique with painting

Re-learning tolerance and patience towards others

Not hurling projectiles at bill

also, on a totally random note, this video is stunning. I found it on moto atom's website.

I figure might as well

Well, the open studios is coming up soon and since i'll be dropping off cards at various galleries, I felt I might as well plug it in here.
I'm not sure if anyone would be interested in driving all the way out to claremont, but what the hell, it couldn't hurt right?

Guess I'm not City Hall Material

I was asked a few days ago if I would be willing to loan out one of my paintings to hang on the walls of Claremont's city hall. It happened to be the one with the nude in the desert with the 'thing' in the background that was a few posts earlier. This surprised me, considering this is city property and they were cool with blurry-looking nudes. Turns out, they weren't cool with it, when one of the council members toured through our studios to give approvals and said the painting wasn't 'neutral' enough. It would have been a kick to see that hanging in the entrance hall and have it be the first thing you see upon entering, but I guess it doesn't compare to this:

Yay I'm a student again!

It's been close to two years since I've been a full time student, and finally my time has come for a second chance at even more school and more debt. Unfortunately, my time has been divided between moving in to my new studio, building stuff, and job searching to pay for life things. So I guess not as much time for painting as I thought. Still, if you see me at any given time, you may see me grinning ear to ear like a moron. It'll probably wear off as the semester rolls on. Unfortunately, all I have done so far is a painting of Gengis Khan with a french mustache and portraits that I painted off of dvds...
