Macy's Passport Gala, and Sociology Sketches

This week I helped out my buddy Mark Elliot with his mural for the Macy's Passport Gala. Unfortunately, I could only chip in with the preliminary work, as my workshop at AAU conflicted with the time frame of the actual event. All the same, it was a fun experience, and I can't wait to see pics of the finished piece.

Also, if you requested a copy of "Sociology", I included quickie sketches on each of the notes I slipped in with the zines. It's nothing big, and they're similar to the sketches I do for my postcards, but I hope you guys get a kick out of them anyhow.

My Flesh #6, finished.

I started this mini-series with the intention of stopping with six. Of course, after six you get ideas, and it's hard to stop. But this is the last for now. Time to move on.

I'm also thrilled because Albert bought me a new MacBook for our anniversary, and I can actually TYPE my posts in Typepad, instead of copying them over from my word processor. It's awesome! I may even start video blogging now that I have a camera. Except I hate listening to myself, so that might not work out after all. We'll see.

Sociology update: I'm out of zines, guys. If you requested one during the offer, I'm going to mail them out on Friday. Thanks, and I hope you guys enjoy them! (let me know what you think, too, feedback is always cool)

Jeremy Mora at Mark Wolfe Contemporary

No, sorry, I'm not related to Mark Wolfe, as far as I know (wouldn't that be cool?). But this month at Mark Wolfe Contemporary, there's a neat show of miniature landscape-sculptures by Jeremy Mora. My full report and pics, of course, can be found on Fecal Face.

"Sociology" Zine Now at City Lights!

It's official, City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco is carrying several copies of my zine, Sociology! If you happen to be in the Bay Area, stop by and pick up a copy! They're priced at $2 each. Pretty sweet for something partially hand-drawn, signed, and numbered.

However, if you live too far away, I have a few that I'm giving away through! If you're interested in one, drop me a line with a mailing address, and I'll put one in the mail for you. Scout's honor, I won't send you anything except the zine (and maybe a thank you note). The zines are limited in quantity though, so get one while you can!
