I finally worked out a place in Portland so I'll be leaving by the middle of next week. Hoorah! Three cheers for rented property to live in. So I got a lot of preparing to do before the big trek though the madness these united states.
One order of business is to lighten up my load a bit so I'm not wrestling a bunch of boxes in the cab of my truck. I'm going to try and skinny up my print stock if possible so from now until the week I move, I'm going to include a small $35 print when you buy one of the larger prints... a little 2 for 1 action. If you do buy a print this week, please let me know by email which one of the little guys you want and I'll have it over to you pronto with it's bigger buddy. Plus you'll have the added satisfaction of putting gas in my truck and sparing me horrible horrible scenarios of being stranded, crying and scared in the middle of nowhere. I imagine it would be like the show Lost but without the extremely attractive people on a beach part and instead just full of angry people beating me about the face and taking all my shit. That wouldn't be a fun trip at all.

I've released a new print. I've gotten many requests to make a print for this piece over the past year so I'm finally making it available. It's a very small edition of 25 so be sure to jump on it whilst you can. Here's a link to my Etsy Store.
Speaking of Etsy, I've switched over there recently. It's mostly out of my own laziness and complete hatred of writing HTML every time I wanted to update my site. I'm actually thinking of just linking my "Paintings" section over to my Flickr page. Man, updating my new work drives me even more crazy. Sizing, resizing, jpegs, checking links... ugh! Fuck it. I'd rather spend all day painting than doing all that. Even typing about updating my site made my hands sweat and i felt a bit of puke rise up from my stomach. So yeah, it's probably gonna happen sooner than later.
Also, I'm deciding right now if I should make some t shirts or not. I've got a design ready to go but I'm going to take a little consensus and see what the demand would be for some custom shirts. Let me know what you think with a comment if you can. Should I do it?
But I know something that I am going to have out soon... Custom beer Koozies. That's gonna be great. I think all my fans must be drunks or half drunks so why not have something to hold your beers? Beautiful.
I'm sorry Blog... I've left you hanging in the wind stirring in the dark. And there's so much to tell! Let me get you up to speed.
Last Friday, the Blab! Show opened at Copro-Nason Gallery in Los Angeles. From what I can tell, it was a huge success and quite a blast. I wish I could've made it over there for the opening, but I'm stuck here working and still trying to figure out how to get over to Portland. Moving across the country is tough business especially when finances like mine come in strange and unpredictable ways. Anyways, here's a link to the Blab! Show 2008 so you can check out all the work.

Also opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery was the Panorama Project curated by Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens. Over 129 artists participated and all the pieces share the same horizon line creating a long continuous pieces of awesomeness. Check out all the work here:

And now my next show is rapidly approaching and the neglect begins again. The show is called "the Wonder" and is opening at Black Maria Gallery in Los Angeles on October 17th, 2008 with Ben Kehoe and Hiro Kurata. And as an added crazy amazing bonus, Michael Hsiung is having a solo in the gallery on the same night. How cool is that? Should be a humdinger of a show and I'll definitely be there for that one.
