Please come join myself and many other talented local artists for a very important evening. I'm hosting a non-profit art auction to raise awareness for Neurofibromatosis research. With the help of NF Inc. and the kindness of the local community, we will be showcasing our art and all proceeds from the evening will go towards the cure. We're still accepting late submissions for artwork and catering services. This entire event is being driven by the kindness of others, so please help if you feel inspired. For any questions, please email me via the link above. Thank you and we hope to see you there!

In recent news...

There's been a lot to report lately, so I'll start at the beginning. I was recently awarded the Phillyist Framed 2010 first prize in a group show for my piece 'The Big U' pictured above. This led to an interview with which you can read right HERE.

Just a few moments ago, I got off the phone with Mr. Mark Perry from the SS United States Conservancy who was kind enough to ask me a few questions regarding the image I captured of the ship and my feelings about its fate. The ship is a work of art and an important piece of history and it's in danger of being scrapped... it's really a sad state of affairs and I encourage you to check out their website and see what these folks are doing to preserve this beautiful ship for future generations to enjoy.

On another note, I just had my show opening on the 12th featuring live music by The Gentlemen's Club who I really owe a debt of gratitude to. They drove a long way on lousy icy roads to rattle the walls of that place, and they certainly did just that. I also have to thank everyone else who made their way from near and far to be there, despite conditions that more closely resembled Dante's Inferno than they did South Philly.

I'm also currently being featured on Blood Orange Review as the 'featured artist' for the current issue. Really cool stuff there... check it out. There's a lot of talented writers whose work is being showcased as well.

Well, that's what's going on here. There's a bunch more stuff in the works that I hope to report on soon including another show that I hope to announce in the spring. It's all happening, folks! Stay tuned and thanks for reading~

02122010... It's coming!!

It's been the world's worst-kept secret for a while now, but I'm happy to announce I'll be returning to the scene of the crime... February 12th, 2010 @ 12 Steps Down in Philadelphia, I'll be hosting the opening for my new show "Roads less travelled." It's a brand-new collection of work featuring a ton of stuff I've been working on over the last few months, much of which nobody has seen yet.

If that's not enough to get you in the door, how about a live rock show by The Gentlemen's Club? They'll be taking the stage to set the mood for the evening.


9th and Christian Streets, folks. Hope to see you all there!

'Tis the season...

(Sara bundled up for the Christmas tree hunt...)

UPDATES UPDATES UPDATES... Just in time for the Winter season, I've added some new work to the gallery. 5 pieces, to be exact. And details on the upcoming art show will be announced soon. Just getting some special details ironed out. Keep checking this space for all the juicy info.

In other news, I'm nearly 250 days into my photo project. Things are getting interesting. I'm looking for a venue to showcase a best-of retrospective on the past year in photos. If anyone is interested, has a space, or wants to collaborate on a show, get in touch with me :)

And lastly, the official holiday cards '09 are being printed as we speak. To receive one, email me your address and that's it. Happy Festivus to all!

More soon. 'Till then...

Reinventing the wheel...

So I'm posting up a new "old" piece here. The story goes like this... I did an illustration very much like this one back in my college days. It's always been a favourite of mine, but the execution of the work showed flaws 5 years after the fact. So I had this dilemma on my hands... do I use the piece or forget about it? Neither. I just recreated it from parts of the old illustration and a truck-load of my most up-to-date photos. Now, I think I've breathed some new life into an old idea that I really enjoyed.

I can't recommend this enough to any other artists reading this... sometimes you've had ideas years and years ago that you've since forgotten about. Maybe you have some work that you aren't too likely to show to anyone because it doesn't represent you anymore. But there's no harm in recycling an old idea and updating your work. As a matter of fact, it's a great way to revisit old inspiration you haven't thought of in a while. Or, to build up your portfolio when you think you're just 'out of ideas.' No, you're not. You just had that great idea a long time ago. Consider the old version a preliminary sketch and get back on the horse, pal. There's art to be made!!

Fall has arrived!

Happy autumn, everyone! This is my favourite season of the year. The world around you just seems to thrive as the air begins to get cooler. You still have those warm days and crisp nights. The colors explode off of every plant like no other time of year. The reds, the yellows, the oranges, bright and vivid on every branch. With autumn comes two of my favourite holidays, as well. Thanksgiving, where you get the time to be in the company of your loved ones and stuff your face with no shame. And Halloween, perhaps the most fun holiday of all, where even adults get to masqerade like children and leave their identities behind for a night and revel in the glory of pure unbridled sin and earthly gluttony. Because life is for the living, after all!

With so much energy in the air, I always feel charged to do more work. I'm more inspired by the fun and playfulness of this time of year. It's a time for celebration, love, and enjoying life to its fullest. Plus, it's the last hurrah before the winter doldrums set in and we all find ourselves stuck indoors for 4 months. So I want to get out as frequently as possible and make the most of what's left of this beautiful weather and let the spirit of the season inspire me.

I've posted several new projects in the gallery and one new one here. I'm going to release more details soon, but I'm happy to announce I'll be having my second solo show early 2010 at the now legendary 12 Steps Down. The last show was awesome and I plan to make this one even better. More details to follow, but know I'm pulling out all the stops on this one. It'll be a time to remember.

Also, I'd like to take a second to thank all the people who have been stopping by my site and getting in touch with me lately. I really appreciate all the feedback. And a special howdy to Sugarland, Texas for having maybe the coolest name I think I've ever heard.

More projects in the works. [LINK] is still going strong! Almost half a year of taking photos every day. Also, I'm attempting a rather big project that I hope to speak more about in the near future. News on that to follow. Stay tuned and see what ideas the winds of autumn sweep into my mind's eye!

Warmest regards,
