The delightful Kris Chau invited me to take part in the artist series on the "Drawing For Food" blog and it has been my great honor.  For most eating and art related internet rummaging, visit Drawing For Food, the resting place for Philadelphia superfriends Kris and Hawk Krall's love for past and future meals.

Interview

Posted by admin on May 20, 2010


I just ran across this Ashcan Magazine interview with me at the Junk History show.  For anyone who reads it and cares about the craft of drawing, some clarification is in order.  In the last sentence where I discuss my process for creating the painting "Buzz Bomb", it says "I took some photos of my head and torso and put them under some tracing paper..." This isn't true. I used photos of my head and torso as photo reference, and then laid tracing paper over my own drawings to continue the transformation of the piece.  The mistake is most likely due to my general lack of articulation.  Thanks to Frank Summa and Sean Logic for the entertaining talk and the resulting write-up.

The catalog from the recent show "Funny (not funny)" is now out and available here and here, featuring some of the finest assholes working in the non-business of "black humor" today.  I'm in there too.  There is some fun discussion of method and madness held within.

Click this link to read the review.  It also appeared in the print edition, I believe on March 9th or 10th.  If anyone can find spare copies, please let me know.  The hunt is on.  Congratulations to the curators, Chris Brand, Evan Skredertsu, and Steve Martinez, the hardest working guys up in your business. Also, don't miss this other great article concerning the show, Josh Morrison's write up on the Fine Arts LA blog.  Thanks to everyone who came to the panel discussion on Sunday. Last but not least, don't miss the show itself.  It's up until May 30th, including another panel discussion concerning the LA River revitalization movement on April 11th at 3pm with members of the Friends of the Los Angeles River organization.
