And its for a good cause..... Help Finn, a two year old boy fight leuekemia. For $75 you could purchase a ticket to a private benefit auction at The Boathouse. Since I'm not on facebook, I thought I'd try to spread the word here on my website.
Get yer snorkels, flippers and paddle boats out! After this evenings downpour- I declare it's "monsoon season"! On the way to meeting friends for dinner I had to stop and pour water out of my shoe! It's funny now- just wait... by March I'll be wishing it was vodka pouring from the sky! This evenings entertainment was watching el.pu.lo. flood!
Got back into town and received some fantastic news, that the "Lifeforms" show will travel around the states. I'm also looking forward to getting back into the studio and creating new concepts. Recently, I was disturbed by the news of another senseless killing of a man jogging in Oklahoma, it was a "thrill kill" done by three teens. Every time I learn such disturbing news, I can't help thinking what the fuck is the world coming to?
My next piece of art will be titled "No Country for Old Men" Most folks reading that title will be inclined to think of a brutally violent movie by the Coen's based on the book by Cormac McCarthy. For many the ending of No Country is meaningless, however I find it allegorically deep.
I'm ready to get bashed for such a title of art... Hope most will "get it" :)
This week I had a conversation a with graphic artist that is developing the branding for Jamba Juice. Our discussion made me question, what is art? Furthermore, what the hell am I doing making it? I mean, why couldn't I come up with a concept and have others execute it?
Without giving a novel sized manifesto- Let's just say I concur with David Hockney when made the sharp remark about Damien Hirst's work.
Yeah... You can see my actual fingerprints in my glass castings and some imperfections, if you're looking to find them.
Today I heard what sounded like someone in the kitchen. Upon going downstairs, I found a sinister squirrel on the counter top trying to steal a whole loaf of bread.. Seriously, it had the bag clutched in her little paws until I surprised her. Then she ran out the back door past our cat. (Whom I'm sure was amused by the incident), however the cat did nothing as the squirrel blazed right past her to escape. Lesson of the day, we have some bold wildlife in our backyard including the family of possums living under the deck- I need to keep the back door closed or ill be cuddling up to a possum instead of a cat one night.
