-Inspired Procrastination pt.1

I took on a freelance Flash job the past 2 weeks and with my show coming up I didn't get a chance to set up a post for last week. I did find some time to sit down and make this video.

A few months ago I saw this kid playing a version of Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" and was in awe. I tracked down German based musician, David Qualey who wrote the arrangement and purchased the music from him.

I made the mask a few Halloween's ago, there's a string attached to the ears, then to a nail on the wall, then hooked back over the capo and wrapped around my hand to move the ears as my hand slides up the neck. I don't really play guitar, but after practicing everyday for a month straight its the best that I could do with a mask on.

Ok, back to work.

-Preview of Sorts

There's a show coming up for me at Jonathan Levine Gallery in NYC. Here's a piece from the show.

"Separate Lives" 24"32" oil on wood.

I painted this 7 months ago. Its been sitting in my studio collecting dust. After it was finished I took a cellphone picture of it and an acquaintance pointed out that there were two chimney's. He said it was like two people living separate lives in the same house.

Detail, there's a cat in one of the windows.

On Thanksgiving there was a wadded up napkin in my stairwell. I took a photo of it untouched. It was on the sill for ten days so I wonder if the super got spooked by it, because all the other trash had been regularly disposed. Looks to me like a fairy-sized mummy in a fetal position. Note the size from the match stick.

Sleep tight everybody.
