Time to Redirect!

Saturday, October 09, 2010 In Progress

Ok, so I wasn't completely happy with the last redesign. Actually, I was upset that I couldn't move (or add) the widgets I wanted to (and it wasn't going to improve anytime soon), so I jumped ship over to Word Press.

I have to say, despite that I need to tweak a few things here and there (and create a decent banner), at least I have the ability to do that. The Word Press version is also dead-on with the design I initially wanted. I have room to grow artistically with my website now, and that helps to keep me motivated in the studio.

So here you go! I'll be adding to, and editing, the design for the next few months, but I really do like this one; it's a keeper. Check out the Word Press edition of!

The New & Upgraded

Well, it's finally happened. After a year of mulling it over, I've decided to jump in and redesign Thankfully, by the time I got around to it, the crew at Typepad came up with a template close enough to what I initially wanted. Unfortunately, it isn't *quite* perfect, but it'll do for now.

Live Sketching @ Blick Art Materials

This month (in two weeks, to be exact) I'm going to be part of the grand opening reception for Blick's new store on Market St. The plan thus far is to be sketchin', but who knows? Maybe I'll bust out some paint! (it happens.. sometimes) Here's the details for the event, plus the time when you'll catch me sketching:

10 Years of Fecal Face Dot Com

A couple of weeks ago the Fecal Face crew sat down to fine tune the details about the upcoming 10 Year Anniversary show and after party. Fortunately, I brought the camera along; I'm not especially great at offering suggestions. Here's a few shots from the brainstorming session, and here's the details about the big Anniversary bash (seriously, don't miss this one, it's a milestone):

A New Beginning @ 941 Geary

This month the crew of White Walls / Shooting Gallery open the doors to another addition, 941 Geary (right around the corner from White Walls), a gallery that is anticipated to show established and international artists alike. Though mums the word on who all the gallery will be lining up, the space itself is beautiful, and impressive (it's also huge, so artists will have an insane amount of space to work with).

Check out the photos and commentary on Fecal Face.

Reception @ Arc Gallery

Better late than never! Though the show has wrapped, several reception shots from PaperView last month have been posted to my Flickr account, and has also posted their review. Here's a couple of quotes from ArtBusiness:

"Review by RWM: Wonderful variety of art with impressive use of paper as medium. There are amazing pigeons, sexy butterflies, fascinating landscapes, and memorable collages.

Comment by AB: A respectable cull with high points worth seeing."

You can check out my reception shots here, and's here.

48 Hour Film Project at Arc Gallery

Well, it's 6:30 am, and I'm awake and caffeinated! Unfortunately, that won't make this note any less direct. Sorry guys, a girl's got to sleep sometime.

Last week the crew from AntiSocialites camped out at Arc Gallery to shoot their short film "Con/Artist". The film is part of the 48 Hour Film Project, and uses the PaperView group show as part of the set. Rumor has it, the four large pigeon works I submitted to the show, have made their way into some key scenes. Of course, I'll be investigating this personally!

You can read up about the film, or check it out in person:

(Special thanks to Mike Yochum for grabbing a snapshot of the filming for me!)

Hipster Apocalypse on Fecal Face

Well kids, I hope you rationed your bottled coffees, because shots from the Hipster Apocalypse have made their way to Fecal Face! (again, kudos due to Shaun Roberts for covering the show) No doubt the fallout from the reception took its toll on many (myself included), but if you somehow slept through the action, you can check out the artwork until July 3rd.

Of course, until you venture out of your bunker to survey the damage, Fecal Face has the report.

Next Up, PaperView

Dear diary, I'd really like a dolly. No, not the creepy kind I found in the hallway while I was doing laundry (though that was cool too), I mean the kind on wheels that I can haul artwork with. Let's keep it practical.

With two group shows this month, Hipster Apocalypse (reception photos coming soon), and the upcoming PaperView at Arc Gallery, it's been a great month. Albeit, a busy one. I've spent way more time writing, promoting, and framing (as well as balancing my freelance gig) than creating. But this is normal when you've got shows rolling down the pike, and it has to be done. No complaints.

So this Friday (June 11) from 7-10p, check out the next group show, PaperView at Arc Gallery. Arc is a great space, and I highly recommend checking it out. Hope to see you guys there!

"Your Last Moment" in the Bay Guardian

There's been some great press surrounding the Hipster Apocalypse show at Cafe Royale, including blog entries from both the Tenderblog and SFCitizen, and now the Bay Guardian has also jumped aboard to promote the show! This afternoon the print edition printed "Your Last Moment" (one of two works), along with the show's bio. Looks like it's going to be a fun reception tonight!

Hipster Apocalypse @ Cafe Royale

As far as Hipsters are concerned, it's the end of the world. But is it the end for them, or for the rest of us? Truthfully? Probably neither, but that doesn't stop all of us (hipsters or otherwise) from having a little fun with the subject via art. The end is nigh, and details below:

"SuperNatural" on

Alan Bamberger made the gallery rounds (I don't see how he does it all, really) and stopped by the SuperNatural reception at Fabric8! He also snagged this shot of me next to "Growth", which is much appreciated (because, you know, I can't shoot myself). Click over to and check out the other shots from the reception!

Video Blog 012 - "The Pain of Framing"

An inside look at the stuff I do with framing, the process, and why I might someday have an intern do this part for me (since I'll likely be in a body cast).

"So Much is Burning" on stopped by "So Much is Burning" at Gallery Heist last month and brought back a ton of photos! (thanks guys!) They also coaxed me into this photo op.. don't ask how it happened, just know that someone, somewhere, probably has some dirt.

Play to Your Strengths

Ok, I admit, sometimes I tape cheesy quotes over my drafting table. This is a really good one though, I got it off of a horoscope. It also popped up the day after I got one saying I needed a new love life asap (that one really made me laugh), so take it with a grain of salt.

"Play to your strengths." It's simple, and when you think about it, it's a pretty strong little quote. Well, it gets me going anyway. But I'm going to challenge it and say "play to your weaknesses" too.

Reception @ Gallery Heist

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thanks for turning out for the Heist show, guys! The crowd was awesome - tons of people everywhere, checking out and discussing art. Unfortunately, I didn't grab very many pics (once again, I was too busy chatting and catching up.. the best part about receptions!), but I did snag this one of the crowd.

Next up, another potential group show on the horizon! Details coming soon. In the mean time though, I'm off to work at the drafting table for my usual 4am run. Getting really close to finishing up this labor of love (three months in the making, can't wait to be done).
