So here we go. The challenge of a lifetime. This is the pre-game to the big show. I just launched my kickstarter for the residency/book. I’m trying to get to my goals soon. I’ve been thinking about this book for over a year now, and I’ve been lucky enough to get an opportunity to share my talent, learn more, and get advice from a school I deeply am a fan of… SVA (The School of Visual Arts).
Now I have a month to get this all together. Saty tuned to this blog to find out more. Will I be able to go? Will I make my goal of 100 pieces? Will I buckle under the pressure, and collapse into a world of artistic insanity? Who knows? But I can promise it is going to be a hell of a ride. Memorable indeed.
Without further ado… Here is the link to my grand project. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/920816431/beyond-the-void-intensive-residency-artist-book
Celebrate to this. You can’t spell “PARTY” without “ART”.
So last week I found out that I was accepted to the summer residency program at SVA in New York. I’m over joyed and still in shock that I got in. Now I have to figure out how to get over there. I plan on starting a kickstarter account within the next few days. The funds will go to travel, materials, and a book that I plan to make at the end of this program. This is going to be one the most mentally, physically, and creative processes of my life. I plan on making 100 pieces in that time span. This includes paintings, drawings, mixed media, and maybe an installation. The process will be documented on this blog.
I’ll post a link to the project very soon. The program actually starts the day after my birthday. No that is some fate in action. I hope to have your support. Thank you all for the encouragement. You guys are the reason I keep pushing.
The band of art mercenaries are back. If you don’t know, a long time ago a group of young artist, that met online and through comics, came together to form a collective site to show case their works. This group was known as RESPARK. We’ve had many members and many incarnations of our group. After a few years of people doing their own thing and honing their skills, we finally came back together. I present respark.net. I’m so proud of my friends and colleagues for the work they have done. We hope to surprise you all with new works and innovative ideas. Please check out our site and join our facebook fanpage.
So I’m in a new show coming up.
Wonderland SF presents:
Friday April 12, 2013
Where: Wonderland SF (2929 24th Street, SF 94110)
Hope to see you for some great art, music and complimentary beverages.
If you are in San Francisco you should come by. Show some love.
This is going to be a great time.
In a show tomorrow at Mama Art Cafe in SF. Working with the Maritime crew. The show seems like it might be pretty cool. I’m excited about the show. It’s like a kick off to a bunch of other things coming up. Now only if someone would buy some art, so I can keep my place and keep making more work. Fingers crossed.
Mama Art Cafe (4745 Mission Street, SF) on March 21st
7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
I helped write this little insert about the show.
“The context of the human experience is a multi-layered creation. Through these layers we wear masks for protection, inclusion, and a sense of identity. “Hidden Faces” is an exploration and personification of the masks of society, the individual and the roles they play on the culture at large. The artists in the this show are all a part of Maritime Art Collective. Maritime calls reference to a group of aesthetic explorers foraging a new path in the ever-expanding world of art. This group works together under a cooperative spirit and a common understanding that a whole can become greater than merely the sum of its parts.”
Here’s a preview.
