Hey there, kidlings. I've been very busy lately! I moved into my new apartment in Jamaica Plain (with lots of help from the Jared) and am now officially set up for living. So expect new work from me! I'm currently working on a painting with cat ghosts and cookies and whatnot. Also, to further exemplify my nerd-dom, I officially have two monitors running side by side, a 15" and a 23" to do my work on. Ooh yeah.

Also! I have a new Pheonix sub-cover (the big story cover on the inside) coming out this Wednesday, so if you're anywhere in the northeastern area, pick up a copy!

Aside from that, I'm revamping my entire portfolio and getting myself in check. Professional time = now.

Bikes Not Bombs Anniversary Party

Recently I finished an invitation design for Bikes Not Bombs, a local nonprofit dealing in the sales/repair of bikes, as well as teaching classes and developing youth programs for kids. They're a fantastic group, and working with them was wonderful. I'm so happy to have been a part of something so important for their company. This was also a nice exercise for drawing hands, too.

This is their 25th birthday/anniversary as a nonprofit, and tickets are available through Bikes Not Bombs, tickets starting at $50.

Working on redoing my entire physical portfolio as well as taking more steps to get my website up. Also moving into the new house this upcoming week. Working towards figuring out a lot of things right now.

Radiohead - Kid A

This is my entry for the Beck's Music Inspired Art contest 2009 via Flickr. I chose to redesign Radiohead's Kid A, as it's one of my favorite album of theirs. I had a lot of fun with this one, and I wanted to make it look as bizarre as possible. I feel as though I've been making a LOT of work since school let out, and it'll be easier now to build a strong portfolio with pieces I like instead of having to pick from just a few pieces.

If you'd like to check out some of the other entries, head here!!

Oh, come now father dear and turn this blood to choice.
You know I think these young are spent & have seen their day.
My back bares the scars of work while my sweat has cut the cost.
If my word to God isn't bond then I'll be damned to say.

This can't be so bad
Only I sure did love the way she danced.

Dear The World,

Harvey Danger! I got to meet all those cool cats!

(My stuff there in the middle! Next to the lovely Veronica Hebard)

FRIDAY NIGHT, I got to see HARVEY DANGER, for one of their last shows EVER on the east coast. Not only did I have the most fun of my whole life during the set, but I actually cried during the last song. My buddy Mat Malone gave me the opportunity to meet the band after the show. I got to speak to every member of the band after the show and gush over knowing every single guitar/bass/drum entry in every song as well as being able to tell them how their band led me to 9 years of vocal and instrumental training. This ultimately led to my love for physical art, Illustration. I'm so grateful that I got to tell them how much the experience meant to me.

I couldn't feel luckier, and after having my gallery show that night for Paint Pens in Purses, I was floating on cloud 9. I got to be showcased with some fantastic female artists as well as being able to hug the lead singer of my favorite band for the LAST TIME EVER.

Bikes Not Bombs and Pet Monsters!

Hey there,

I had a busy birthday week! Thanks to everyone who came to visit for my birthday (especially those from out of state) and to everyone who sent me warm wishes. I had a great time, and I love having a birthday in the summertime.

Updates! This Friday night is the opening of my Pet Monsters show at the new Trilogy building in Fenway. It's going to be sweet, and we're being sponsored by Karmaloop, PBR, and a lot of other companies, so this should be pretty swank! I'm really looking forward to being in a show with so many talented ladies. I'll have to put on some lady clothes that evening. If you're interested in attending, please send your rsvp to paintpensinpurses@gmail.com.

I've also been working with Bikes Not Bombs out of Jamaica Plain and helping design invitations for their big 25th Anniversary party. I had no idea how much BNB has contributed to the community along with other nations and the army, sending bikes to those in need of a form of transportation. They rule! And they know how to fix up bikes like no tomorrow, so support your local bike repair shop and youth program here.

Thanks for looking! More updates and new paintings soon!
