New Drawing

So I've been trying to get back into the studio, which means that I've been cranking out some bad drawings. This is the first one that I've done that I feel good about. I've been playing around with phosphorescent paint, so the drawings glow in the dark. I've provided a before and after, so you can see all of the glowie goodness. It was hard to get a glow-in-the-dark picture that was in focus because of the long exposure, but you get the point.

The Last Days of A6

These are some snaps of Sean Russell and myself doing wall pieces for the final show of the A6 Gallery. It figures that the first gallery that I was repped by ends up getting torn down.

One dirty mutha.

Sean Russell: Artist Extraordinaire


I love working on walls. If anybody wants me to come by and make a wall messy for them, please give me a call. Seriously.

Sean likes Bud, Bombs, and Graphite

X marks the spot!

We have arrived in Maine, and it is absolutely beautiful. Here are some pictures of our new abode. To all family and friends: Please come and visit. I miss you already. Plus, we have a guest bedroom!

More to come.

Where's My Barrel?!?!

How could we pass through lovely Buffalo New York (no joke, it's nice) without making a pit stop at everyone's favorite waterfall. If you haven't guessed yet, I'm talking about Niagra-Fuckin'-Falls!

My blushing bride. I'm pretty sure she's smiling because the roar of the water covers up the sound of her farts. Just kidding... kinda.
I don't know if anybody else noticed, but I believe that I have found the ruins of Castle Grey Skull!
Either that or the Great Wall of China.

This is where they make the Mocha's for all of the tourists. I had one, and they're delish!
I hella love sight seeing!


The storm that we saw in Nebraska found its way through Iowa, and we ended up following it all the way to Maine. What it left was what the news stations are referring to as the 500 year flood, but what I saw was a heaping load of pain-in-the-ass for most of the residents of Iowa.
Here are a few snaps of the side of the road. We ended up just squeaking through before they closed I-80. It's a good thing that we did, otherwise we would have had to tack an extra three days to our trip. The flooding was pretty bad, and it wasn't even supposed to crest until the next day. When we were passing over rivers, the water was nearly touching the bridges. It felt like everything that we passed was under water. Keep in mind that these pictures were taken before any television anchor-people could rush out and get fitted for waders, which means that the water got much deeper.

Evan and Renee go to White Castle.

Have you ever imagined something that was so enticing that you built up a jonze for it even though you had not even tried it yet? That was my experience with White Castle sliders. After watching the Academy Award winning documentary Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, I was led to believe that their sliders would dance across my tongue and make love to my taste buds. What I encountered was something completely to the contrary. Although the size of the burger was conveniently small enough to eat with one bite(see picture), I can't say that they lived up to my lofty expectations.

For all of the children:

Don't dream. Don't you dare, because if you do, you will end up driving down the freeway with your mouth stuffed full of small discs of boiled meat and onions(which look like baby tape worms) encased in soggy bleached white-bread buns. As you drive, you try and choke back the tears, but you realize that there are none coming because your internal organs are all starting to shut down.

I ordered 10 sliders and I finished 10 sliders. I imagine, even as I write this, that I will be darkening the doorstep of White Castle in the distant future.

You may scoff, but before you do, let me point this out. I know that you've eaten at a chinese buffet. And every time that you leave, you tell yourself that it will never happen again. I know that given the right circumstances, such as on the days of heavy drinking, the China Buffet is a glowing beacon of satisfaction for your battered stomach. You'll cave... and when you do, think of me.

See you at White Castle

Jun Kaneko

While we were in Omaha, we had the opportunity to visit Jun Kaneko's Studio. His studio manager Jason showed us all of the different spaces ranging from storage, to kilns, to galleries. I want to thank Jun, Rhee and Jason for taking time out of their day to deal with our prodding.
