SCION Art Space show this month!

Now that school is done for the summer I'll probably write more. But first things first. I'll be in Los Angeles from May 21-May 31. I am part of a group show at the SCION Art Space in Culver City. I would love to see people so come on by the opening on the 22nd. I am creating a wall of food art! Reasonably priced works on paper.

Art Constipation

Needless to say grad school has been a challenging, anger and joy inducing activity. It is knocking me around and is exciting and terrifying at the same time. It forces you to confront yourself. Bleh.

I am going to try and write more about the experience without sounding like a baby or a boring cliche which will be very hard as I feel like a big baby and I am a cliche. In the meantime, I am feeling the need to purge, purge, purge. My art is constipated. I must get rid of the art that is hanging out in my apartment.

So MEGA SALE starting officially on Monday, February 15, but you can check out the art as I post the work. All art is going for either $100, $50 or $25!

Beautiful Losers

OK just watched Beautiful Losers documentary again to gain a little perspective back. Here is a quote from Mike Mills at the end of the movie that helped me today. It might not be exact but it's real close.

"It is good to be able to say that work is rad, to not be like oh that work sucks all the time, which in art school is what you get trained to do, nothing's good enough, everything's shitty. It is so much more powerful to say that is rad. I love that. I wish I did that."

And then he basically says if you are looking at people being interviewed about art in suits, making jokes, or reading press or articles or watching TV "don't believe a fucking word of it."

Deja Vu

I just realized I am reliving what happened to me at Denison University when a teacher told me I couldn't draw. Only this time I know they are wrong and I am not quitting.

Cover Art

I was trying to organize my art on my computer and came across these covers I did for the Portland Mercury. I likes them! They are daring. My art tends to be a little weird and awkward and more often than not art directors want something a little prettier. I do pretty dessert and food, but my people are usually a bit off. So thanks Portland Mercury!

Please continue to check out as I am trying to add new stuff regularly. Thanks!

New website!

I gots me a brand new website. Cake and lobster, two of my favorite things. The new site is easier get around, I do believe. You can buy pictures there too! Or just look at them, although buying would be a good idea for presents and stuff. Holidays are coming up you know. Get on that.

I am going to try and post new stuff regularly in my spare time. HA!

So I'm trying to get to the point where I feel completely at home here in Philadelphia. Almost there, but not totally. It should help when I get some furniture I suppose. Then I could invite people over. Get the social ball rolling.

It seems I still have an arm clinging to Los Angeles and can't quite let go. My head is still half hanging out in Pasadena and that might be keeping me from fully committing to here.

This weekend I didn't have any plans except for a trip to Ocean City, MD to see my sister-in-law on Saturday. (Yes that counts as plans, but it wasn't based in Philadelphia.) On friday I was originally planning to drive down to Maryland, but it was raining and gross so I waited. Here I was on Friday with nothing to do. Back in Pasadena I have a group of people I can call to do stuff with at the last minute. Here I have friends, but I am not sure where I stand with everyone yet. I don't want to be that pesky person who doesn't realize they are annoying. So I did nothing and waited for something.

It was weird. I've got my old high school / college friends in the suburbs, my illustrator / designer friends in the city and the new friends I have yet to make at grad school. Where do I fit in? This makes me feel all mushy and nervous. And I don't want to let go of my world in Pasadena. What to do? All these worlds.

I know it will all settle in and it is normal and it will be what it is supposed to be, but I am used to being the social organizer. I was comfortable in Los Angeles. Now I am uncomfortable. Exactly what I asked for. So I'll shut my yap and deal. Jeez.
