Aliens Are Coming

This is Eve

This weekend, I made model sheets for what will be sexy alien sculptures. This is a project that has been in the works for way too long, and it is the most process-oriented project I’ve ever undertaken. What started out as photos, became digital manipulations, which were used to make these sketches. These sketches will become sculptures, which will be photographed. The resulting photographs will become paintings, and those will comprise the end series. Then all I have to do is convince a gallery to show them. Sometimes, I am an idiot.

Also, here is the thought to be lost “Elbow Loop”:

This was just an experimental mood piece that Benzo and I made for an event in Pittsburgh. It was meant to loop indefinitely. As it turns out, it was only played through once (practically accidentally) and never seen again, until now.

Dino Campbell – “The Witness”

"The Witness"

I grew up with this picture hanging in my father’s office. I used to get lost in this thing, because there is so much ridiculous detail. Denny had two Dino Campbell prints in his office, and a third that he gave to my art teacher. That one was much like this in that it was a quagmire of overlapping, non-specific religious imagery.

After leaving home, I wished to, one day, own this piece, and to my delight, my father recently mailed it to me. I was somewhat disappointed, however, to find that there is no information on the internet regarding this artist or any of his work.  I feel that this work is far too beautiful and significant to drift into obscurity, so here is my attempt at preserving it.  Check it out, and if you feel compelled, pass it along.

New Hair and Uploads

New Hair

So, a couple of weeks ago, I (with the help of Jennifer) finally died my hair to look like a chipmonk. This is a hairstyle I desired to do for a decade. I wanted to do it on Daisher, because he was the canvas for my two greatest hair creations ever–leopard head (which got ripped off to no end, and is now, sadly passé), and clown hair (hair died green shaved into the shape of male pattern baldness).

Also, let it be known that the galleries are now populated with years and years worth of my time-wasting, as is the media section. Here is a rarebit to whet your appetite:  

This is the seldom seen “Freezer Burn” without the musical score. I always felt that this one could stand on its own without the score (which was excellently produced by Beau DeMonte). I felt that the score pushed it more towards being a cartoon (which is fair for this piece). However, without music, the piece feels more oddball and unique, and I kind of like that.

Bon appétit!
