-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.

  2. I love all of your work. It is all so amazing and inspiring. I was wondering, have you have ever designed a tattoo for someone? Would you be willing to?

  5. Thanks everyone.

    Scott, I'm honored that you'd want to have something so permanent of my work, but I don't have time to do commissions for tattoo designs these days. I'm sorry.

    Yeah Sarah, I was Soybean for Halloween in 2005.

  7. Ah, that was awesome. I kept not watching the video every time I came to your page because I had no idea what was going on..with the dog head and all lol. You learned well for a month (: That gives me hope to learn. I am also planning on getting a tattoo of your artwork, and I luckily found you through Circa Survive too. I'm really glad that I did. I hope you have an amazing show Saturday. I plan to visit new york someday, hopefully to see your art work. You inspire me to believe that I can be an artist. Thank You.
