It has been a very productive and inspiring season for me, with a few great highlights. Ive been spending more time working at home and outside which i believe has brought a closer intimacy to the pieces. We added a new member to our family, Olive Simone, a cute little puppy, that has a face like a manatee.Her and GG have already become great friends. There was a number of great connections and shows with some of our musician friends, i would have to say one of the highlights is always seeing Tool play live and reconnecting with Danny Carey, who remains a major source of inspiration in my life. Danny informed us that a fetish doll my mom gave him over a year ago, hangs on his kit when he plays, which is really cool and oddly funny at the same time.We had a number of succesful shows and met quite a few new friends while reuniting with many familiar faces. I cant
help but say it, i love my job and feel so lucky to have the experiences.
I am deep in the midst of producing the first wave of work for my January showing at the Blue Spiral and the Outsider Art Fair in February. As some of you might know i have spent alot of time planning a number of these works out, which has been a very exciting and new process. I will be posting a few pieces online over the next few months, but i probably wont have the majority of my new work available for viewing until December. So, dont fret, i havent fallen off, im just deep in the cave making the best work i can.
The Mountain Xpress published an artcile with me featured in it, heres the link

The big crafty was a great success! Pack Place and the museum was filled with an excited crowd for most of the day, there was a multitude of sincerely interesting exhibitors and Asheville was in full effect.By the end of the day most of the drawings on the table had disappeared.Big up to Brandy and Justin!
