Art, style, space adventures

Good morning

It’s 2 am. Moments ago, a large taxi driver handed me a Russian Christian Ministries flier in the elevator of my building. “Please come – Saturday, 11 am.” He seemed to really mean it. After a pause I talked about the churches in Russia, how beautiful they are. He repeated “Please come”. Is nowhere safe? — This prompts a mini Flickr recap of recent days. Not motivated for NYC #2 update, yet. New painting, very early in the process. Oil …

New York: part 1

Flew Virgin America for the first time, which was very pretty and slick. Sadly, the seats didn’t recline nearly far enough for an overnight flight and the seat to seat chat seems a bit on the creepy side. Click the image below to be taken to the Virgin set on Flickr. Stayed in Brooklyn’s Park Slope with Mark – college friend of D’s – and his ladyfriend Sophia. I’d never spent time in Brooklyn before, and really dug it. Their …

Hello from the Dubai tourism board!

This is a direct cross-post from Coilhouse, my appologies to anyone who is reading it twice. Diz and Mil. Friends, one of Our People is in serious trouble. Mildred’s partner, Diz, has been arrested in Dubai for melatonin, an over-the-counter aid for jet lag. You can read the full story here, on Mildred’s LJ. I quote: We kind of knew he would be profiled because he has long hair and looks oriental (they are very racist against Asians in Dubai, …

Grievance – a drawing

Paper, ink 11×14″ I’ve been seething with the especially persistent feeling that I should be drawing instead of just about anything, so this was angrily hammered out in two and a half hours, in such a mania. Please excuse these not being scans, will scan it just as soon as I can. Carrying on with the Rococo technology theme I’ve been developing since the trips to Russia and Italy. There is something infinitely appealing about the concept of intricate jewelry …

2007 in review – the opus

The past year was the busiest I’ve ever been, and consequently the most fulfilling. I did learn a lot about stretching myself too thin, but it was most definitely worth it. Reflecting while writing this gave me a chance to examine the way I spend my time, which will hopefully lead to an optimized life system – now entertaining the idea of a monthly recap in this vein. In the meantime I’ll be doing some physical writing in regards to …
