and this shall be the new portrait

The Sculpture Center's Lucky Draw is fastly approaching with a couple of my pieces mixed into the show. If anyone's in NYC and wants to spend a weirdly-lot of money to bid on some art of mine (as well as the likes of Vito Acconci, Louise Bourgeois and others) - April 13th'd be the day to do it.



In aural news, Dutch and I laid down some more tracks recently for the forthcoming FACEBREAKER album. Forrest Paquin of El Diablo Robotico was kind enough to sit in for some vocals and violin playing on a new tune called Mean Ole Levee. We also finally recorded some silly guitar soloing of mine to finish up most of the track called Caboose. This album still has some work needed, but will ideally be out in 2010. I'll keep you updated as it progresses, in the meantime, you can always click HERE for the audible works page.

I wrote a new little triptych poem that can be viewed HERE & HERE

Otherwise, if you missed the things that are now still kind of new but not really as new as they once were, well...
            - 2 new PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH pieces are posted
            - 4 new images in a series called THINGS I KNOW/FEAR
            - my CAMERAPHONOGRAPHY images are now exhibited online at the
              FORWARD THINKING MUSEUM as well as a whole slew more HERE
            - a couple new test woodcuts that can be viewed HERE

Lastly, I am now working on a 24", 2 color woodcut as well as preliminary sketches for the third installment to the series 24 HR CHRONICLES...  As well,  a couple new tidbits of music-making on my new recording set up are forthcoming perhaps
