    Canon RF 16mm f2.8 – First Thoughts

    My first reaction to rumors of the Canon RF 16mm f2.8: intrigue. Upon seeing the price and announcement: I’m in! My preorder was placed on September 13 and it arrived on October 21. An initial launch date of October 14 and there have been reports for supply issues, had me worried. That worry was unfounded […]

  • Let’s Go Other Sox

    Let’s Go Other Sox

    This year the White Sox performed exactly as I thought they would. They won a bunch of games and coasted to a division tittle but showed they still had a lot of room for growth. The playoff were a different story, and one that was disappointing to watch. They couldn’t hit, they couldn’t pitch, and […]

  • Currently Reading

    In the absence of being able to visit musuems, I’ve been looking through art books. It’s not quite the same, but it does give me a chance to get to know an artist or an exhbit that I might not otherwise know. Currently I’ve been reading a Jasper Johns book by Michael Crichton. Yes, the […]

  • Art in Quarentine

    I’ve been finding it harder to finish work. Somethings I’ll start throw away. Something will sit in some state of unfinshed. Others I won’t even start. It’s been difficult. I don’t really have the answer, but I’m trying to get myself sketching and making more regularly. I need the outlet.

    Limited edition of 20 zines, signed. unlimted unsigned editions. 8 pages, 6 art museums, even more bathrooms. A look at both facts and opinions on the places we excuse our bodies when we go somewhere to excuse our minds. i intended to distribute them by leaving copies in the bathrooms featured. That was the before […]

  • “Impeach”

    “Impeach”

    One of my personal goals for 2020 is that I want to Make, View, and Buy more art. I’ve also long dreamed of owning an original piece by someone who’s work is in major museums. These two dreams collided when Jenny Holzer announced a limited edition piece to address the impeachment of Donald J Trump. […]

  • My Second Zine

    finished my second zine and started sharing it. Overall, reactions have been pretty good and this was a lot of fun to make. I went to six different museums and found inspiration in each of them. This is a more classical zine, filled with images cut with an Exacto night, some hand lettering, and cut […]

  • Park Sketches

    It’s ridiculously warm in NYC right now. Unseasonably. Washington Square Park was as packed as you would expect. Sat on the south east edge of the fountain area with my pens and pencil. Noticed that my moji fountain pen is out of ink, but still had plenty of options. A couple. He was more interested […]

  • It was going well…

    Until I took a bit too much ink on my brush. I’ve got an idea for how to salvage this piece and I’m not too worried since I can always paint a new one with this original vision, but damn if I wasn’t a bit angry with myself when this happened. All in all though, […]
