The Hive Gallery and other Updates

This coming Saturday, the fifth, I will have a piece up at the Hive Gallery in The May Group Show. I sent in "Cloud Cover" because the gallery director really seemed to like that piece. For those of you who haven't seen it:

So, I just had a business card professionally printed for the first time. It came out pretty well. I am happy with it. Hopefully it helps. Let me know if you'd like one and I'll send you one.

Meanwhile I've been at work in the studio a little bit more. I finished another piece in the Boob Tube series today. I think it is probably the best one to date. The birds really did it for me.

I also was working in the sketchbook today and came up with a couple things. Actually the one character is kind of old, but I like him, and I keep drawing him. Nothing wrong with a vampire bat/tv set.

The other is another bird with a stereo. Anyone who went to the Vashon Island show knows that that is one of my favorite subjects.

In other news, I just made a cd and sent it to Aardvark Art, a new company in Loveland , Colorado. They are going to be making some prints of a couple of my bird pieces and of "Cookie", a personal favorite. I will keep you updated.

Hey Mike!

The blog (and the art-though that goes without saying!) look great. I'll be back with more interesting comments as you put up new stuff.

Oh, you wanted a link to my blog:

Paranoia is a Greek
the roads
that various hallucinations
carrying their crosses of the future.
I stare at the sun
parking the clouds
in bucketfulls with my back-hoe.
The grid of the sky comes down
in boxes
each of their three dimensions
tearing away
the giants of my life are left gaping.
I take another hit of grass
and contemplate whether or not I
am thirsty enough
to risk human contact
at the nearby convience store.
It doesn’t seem worth it.
My muscles are locked around me
and I wonder:
did I buy some bad hash?
They need to get the real stuff
in Europe, fuck this
alchemy of the pagan gods,
move on to Christian pot, I think.
And the grid reorients itself
in a world held by
a scaffolding
that rests on nothing.
