    It shows promise...just use it as an underpainting or a basis for a bigger piece...

    this is one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me. i got a message on myspace the other day from someone who is a fan of my work asking for permission to use one of my images as a tattoo.

    i gave him permission, and the next day he and his friend got matching tattoos. they came out beautifully. here they are:





    i think they're my biggest fans ever. i just can't believe someone likes my work enough to want to have it on them for forever. it's amazing.

    Ewiggy - I like you. (And how would I know that? I just read random email messages well.) As art, that shit is cool, but as a tattoo I find it kinda pitiful.

    That is very very cool. Ewig for the win.

    And maybe since that guy respects you so much, you can have a talk with him about the shorts.


    Algunz, as an art critic I find you kinda pitiful.

    Those shorts are pretty cool I think.

    A Party You're Not Invited To

    If it's true what they say
    about everyone having skeletons in their closet,
    I'd like to believe mine
    are dancing.

    Swaying to the melodies of
    Billie Holiday or Nina Simone or
    maybe they're body rockin'
    to funk and soul and
    not a soul knows
    except me.

    I'll bet between
    stone-washed jeans and a
    vintage tee they're
    waltzing to symphonies
    and harmonies like
    honeybees around a hive.

    Perhaps their soft taps
    are backed by a hip hop beat
    from Common or Jay-Z
    or Only God Can Judge Me.

    Maybe it's classic rock like
    Skynyrd,
    The Doors or Stones
    or Bad to the Bone
    though it would be
    so horribly literal.

    They move
    with hollow skulls and no regret,
    rotting teeth and cigarettes.

    They glide among my
    hangers and shoes
    insecurities and pride though
    they have no eyes
    so they really can't cry.

    The ribcage is a stage and
    their once-alive hearts
    are steppin' to the beat
    of all that moves and lives
    and they live for torment and pleasure.

    Envy doesn't get much better
    than an array of joints
    sharing a head nod and a
    joint in remembrance of a
    Marley song cuz we've all
    done wrong but
    every little thing's
    gonna be alright.


    Sometimes I think I
    hear them whispering
    in murmurs that sound like
    almost-laughs and
    I wish I was in on their joke.

    Misery must really love company
    because there are hundreds of them
    drinking and clinking their cups to sin.

    And even though we hold
    so much disdain for one another
    I don't know of any other
    marrow that turns sorrow into celebration.

    And one night when the world is
    a chaos of bad dreams and
    untucked sheets
    I'd like to believe
    amid a closet door creak
    and bedtime feet
    they'll let me in

    ...to dance.
    For whatever reason, long after I read it, I thought about this poem at work today. And I think it's fucking brilliant. Shame on me for not saying that right after I read it.

    Ya know people who say they can really read people. Whateber.

    I only find the art pitiful in the sense that the cassette is such an archaeic means of music recording, and what are they/you trying to say by tattooing this to themselves. Music bleeds?

    They almost are going to a place similar to Kiki Smith, but replacing the delicacy of her work with a graphic intensity.

    Isn't it supposed to be roots in the original? Or did I misinterpret the image when I first saw it?
