Keep those balls in the air!

"The Flying Karamazov Brothers," The New Yorker, September 13, 2010

...and the official caption for the illo:
Four jugglers tell jokes while keeping all their balls in the air, in “The Flying Karamazov Brothers,” at Minetta Lane Theatre.

This is you. No, this is you.

My buddy Owen Sherwood and I are going to be doing a two man show curated by Emma Copely (do check out her paintings) up in the Collar City, the Home of Uncle Sam, beautiful Troy, NY at the Capital Region Artcenter.  We both grew up right outside of Troy so it's going to be sweet to have a big space to fill and show all our old high school enemies that we are . . . artists. . .  As part of the show, we're doing a little project: This is you. No this is you. : a series of insults back and forth that we'll eventually be putting together as a sprawling piece for the show.   Fortunately, I had the good sense to make it a blog: Owen has the foresight of drunk garden tool trapped in a cabinet.  We're just getting started and it's a lot of fun,  so keep checking it out from time to time!

Melissa Ling

Check out Melissa Ling's work.  Another recent Pratt graduate, she's got a great sense for quiet images that really have a visual punch to them, along with some knockout drawing skills!

Nick Cave - no, not that one.

So - I mistakenly atributed this to Nick Cave the singer/writer, thank you Jordan Awan for pointing me in the direction of the Chicago based performance artist Nick Cave! Who can keep track!? Well . . . apparently people who read:). They're still super fun. I still love how much Jack Kirby I see in the bottom costume - looks like one the Celestials!
