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~
