Last night, I went to the opening of Damien Hirst's "Medicine Cabinets." I bought a cool book for the exhibit. Unfortunately, he wasn't there to sign it... You can look at pictures of it here.
Jay Ryan and Aaron Horkey are collaborating on a print and it is looking AMAZING.
Jay updated during the entire process, which is awesome to see:
I really want to try and get one
This woman's stuff is incredible Check out her site for a ton more including small sculptures of furniture that looks like human flesh
There's a William Wegman book sitting unattended on my front porch.
Dress it in funny clothes and photograph it so it knows how it feels.
Also probably get someone to photograph you doing those things.
I have no idea why, but I am in love with Dave Whites American series.
and thus the reason why I dont understand how I like it so much. Its nothing exciting at all but the Americana paintings im drawn to.
This shit is seriously cool. It's a slideshow so I can't put an example up but it's basically photos of objects being exploded. The rhubarb is my favorite.
Man I wish I could go to this....

Nice, might have to stop by and see that...
Gunz, I can't see those? I don't know why it's not working.
And, this hardly even counts as art. More as doodling perhaps. But yesterday at work I turned a series of large printed numbers into envelopes. The printed numbers were part of a work project that was the bane of my existence for most of the spring semester, so I thought it only appropriate that I recycled them into something happier.
Those are very pretty, Courtney. I love those kind of squiggles/doodles.
it's summer, baby.
The LACMA is great. I signed Izzy up for the NextGen program. She'll be able to get in free until she's 18 and it gets me in free too.
I saw this while on vacation. I thought it was pretty cool.
WTF is that?
It's a statue.
how bout a bronze cast in the surrealist style of the famed writer Franz Kafka. it shows a large empty suit, with a normal-sized man also in a suit riding on the first suit's shoulders.
Here is some of my stuff, I picked up oils a while ago and am loving them more and more. I'm a student so most of these are life drawings and other studies. You can see more of it at www.Gomesillustration.com.
