So as any die-hard Seinfeld fan knows, references to the show can be made to just about anything. Since I find myself practicing Seinfeldology almost daily, I decided to take a sampling of these and throw them into a giant heap. Piece #2 for Idiot Box (with corresponding key below):
I’m beyond excited to be a part of Gallery 1988's Idiot Box, which celebrates the gallery’s 5th Anniversary as well as the 20th Anniversary of Saved by the Bell (holy cow, I’m old). Over 100 artists will be interpreting some of television’s guiltiest pleasures, and will be hosted by Dennis “Mr. Belding” Haskins.. hehe.
I couldn’t decide between my 2 favorite shows, so I decided to do a piece from both. First up, David Lynch’s Twin Peaks..

Logo for the L Magazine's festival this summer, (AD: the wonderful Cecilia Ziko) June 11th to the 14th, showcasing a lot of Brooklyn bands. Should be fun! Again, I cant wait for summer. My reserves of blubber are dwindling and it's almost time to forage. . . for beer and hot dogs at least.

Italo Calvino inspired?
I had seen Shary Boyle's work in Kramers Ergot some years ago, and it's stuck with me since. As luck would have it, I happened across it again. Only now, rather than finding more beautifully mottled watercolors, I found porcelain! What a fun body of work!

"[Drawing Dreams] is a Berkeley, California-based non-profit organization that provides art supplies to children's hospital's artist-in-residence art programs, and other organizations where the need arises."
I was recently asked to contribute some images to Drawing Dreams to be used in a collection of images that they use to create cards that are then sent out as gifts to donors. That said, if only I had boat loads of money I could dole out to the millions of worthy and needy organizations that are out there, that certainly not being the case, it's so incredibly nice to have the opportunity to help in another way by donating art.
Be sure to stop by their website as it is most definately worth it - not only do they display a sizable gallery of professional artwork but work by the very children who are benefitting from the program as well.
