Live Auction!

Exciting news! I've been juried into Montserrat's annual Artrageous! auction. Not just the silent auction, mind you, but the prestigious Live auction which has been graced by such greats as Julie Mehretu, Will Barnet, Masako Kamiya, Rose Olson, &etc., &etc. Here is the piece, which you may recognize:

galidictis grandidieri (self portrait)


You might recall this piece from my post "Badly photographed work from this summer." However, in a stunning reversal, it has been really well photographed by full-time dreamboat Julie O'Boyle. If you haven't seen her blog, you really should check it out.

That's all for now!

Last weekend's adventure

Hi friends,

The photos are in from last week's adventure!

Moments later, this coyote pooped.

Jaguars don't like the cold.

Snow crunching otter.

Ever heard a snow leopard yawn? It's pretty great.

After some girls who didn't have creeper 'staches to protect them.

Lonely reindeer.

Hot barbecue at the end of a cold day.

 I've got some new drawings to scan in, I'll post them soon. In the meantime, stay warm!

Hi there.

So Chris and I went on an adventure yesterday to the Stoneham Zoo; it was lovely! There were few other people out because of the cold, so we had the place to ourselves. Plus, the animals were really curious about Chris's creeper 'stache, so they came right up to us. We took a film camera to document the action, so hopefully I'll be able to post some pictures soon. Until then, here's one of my favorites from the trip, Reeve's Muntjac:
He seemed really cold prancing around out there. Drawing made with computer technology.

That is all.

Dear internet,
Don't worry. I'm not going to get all mushy on you. I just have one thing to say on the topic of love because, well... it's topical. I realized this weekend that love's great advantage beyond all that mushy emotional stuff is that it can really push you out of your comfort zone. And make you like it! So in honor of that sensation, I made a picture of my dreamboat boyfriend (okay, so it's a little mushy) that doesn't fit into my usual oeuvre.

It's really nice to work on something a little different. I'm really enjoying working with graphite; for a piece in graphite that's more in line with the rest of my work, see the Wild West show in Montserrat College of Art's 301 gallery, which opens tomorrow. Don't fret if you can't make it, I'll be scanning it in when the show comes down.

Oodles and oodles,

Hi there.

I have some projects in the works; some projects that involve viruses and rabbits with horns. More on that later. Let's just say I've got two gnarly little bunny ears on my desk and they aren't from my sweet little Kingsley.

The project that I am referring to was made possible by a residency at the fabulous 17 Cox. I recently helped demolish a wall there!

That's me with the stylish boots! Photo by Lucas Spivey.

Which coincidentally, ties into the other thing I wanted to mention, ART'S NOT DEAD 2. Hosted by the aforementioned art facility, and put together by some really lovely people, it's going to be fun. Here's Finn with my submission:

The deadline is tomorrow, so there's still time to submit something. Also, be informed that 17 Cox is accepting donations of art texts; if you donate, they will memorialize you by adding your name to the name of the library. At least until it gets unwieldy, which is why I recommend you donate soon. It really is a delightful place.

Anyway, I hope you are keeping warm.
