I am officially 30. Received a sweet pair of socks with left and right printed on them so I know which foot to put them on. Thanks everyone for coming over and celebrating! Camo High Life cans rock!

Yes, Gino again

Maybe it is because I don't have kids that I am obsessed with my dog Gino. I love my cats, but Gino is real cool, he is like my homeboy now. He just turned 1 on the 16th, or maybe the 18th, it is still being debated. This is a drawing of him I did about a month or so ago. One of his many nicknames is 5-0, because he is always patrolling. I don't know what he is looking for, but he just wanders and sniffs everywhere he goes and is always on alert. Maybe it's the sticks he is looking for.

Also, be on the lookout in my etsy shop, new work will be up very soon. I can't wait because it has been awhile. I am really excited about it.

In sad news, the countdown to 30 is at t-minus 5 days.
Good news, Yanks beat the Sox 2-1 during weekend series. Nice.

Fahamu Pecou

I came across this painter in the recent issue of New American Paintings. I can't stop searching for his work on the Internet! It is in your face, there is a swagger about these pieces that takes me back to my rap/hip hop listening days, you know, before any and everybody started rapping! To check out more go to The reason I chose to write about Pecou (besides that I think he is a great painter) is because I believe there to be a familiar style in his work (a lot of his work) reminiscent to Jean Michel Basquiat (another favorite of mine). The scribbling of words, crossing out of phrases, and the painted space. I do think it is a great homage to Basquiat, but is it to much to include in all the paintings? I am not sure. I only bring it up because I used to "borrow" from an old professors work and some talk began. What does anyone think?

This weekend Jen and I attended our friends Sara and Ben's wedding. It was at the beach and the day couldn't have been more perfect. Congrats to them!!
The paparazzi and their sneaky cameras must have been around because the photo above has led to a lot of talk. I don't know what their obsession is with me, but it must stop. Normally I am pretty elusive, but they got me this time. I mean, I am at a wedding, just let me chill for once. Or at least get me on the way to the studio so it looks like I do work. Nope, we will get Jim with a drink in his hand and spin it into a story. Next thing you know, supposedly at the reception "Jim was later found as the meat between a Lindsay Lohan/Paris Hilton sandwich on the dance floor." I don't evan dance! I mean come on, I guess you can't always believe what you read.

The Coldplay concert Jen and I went to over the weekend was probably the best concert I have been to. They were great. The band played about 2 hours or more I think. Such awesome performers. The image below is the scene when they began to play their song Yellow, it seemed like there was about one hundred giant yellow balloons bouncing everywhere. When they exploded, yellow confetti would float around. I wish my camera wasn't broke!
This pic was taken by Jen, it is me in her brothers basement last year. I was going through my files and found it in the "random" folder. I really like it for some reason. Well that is all for now until I can think of something a little more interesting to post.
