It's been a busy several months on the creative front. Probably one of my best creations/collaborations to date was with my wife - we welcomed our second daughter into the world on October 6th. Leading right up into that was finishing up the album artwork for some good friends of mine in the band Afroskull. To Obscurity and Beyond is their 2nd release – it's a mind blowing followup to their debut album, Monster for the Masses. You can purchase the new one and hear tracks here: LINK. Just find a comfortable cushion to sit on and make sure to wrap your head in duct tape so you don't lose your grey matter. Check them out if this doesn't scare you: New Orleans Funk + Black Sabbath + Frank Zappa + a giant horn section.

There's a great flickr site of other people who have mastered Brushes: http://www.flickr.com/groups/brushes/pool/

foray into Brushes for the iPhone and iPod touch. It takes a few
minutes to get used to but once you get the hang of it the interface
is surprisingly intuitive. The hardest part is not having nimble wispy
fingers. Surprising potential here especially with the ability to have
transparent color. I am really looking forward to exploring this app

So I'm late to the party in a few respects. First - I knew that I was able to email content to Blogger and have it post immediately on the blog, but didn't really have a good reason to. Second - I just inherited a first generation iPhone from my sister. So I'm finally catching up with the rest of the pack on all the things that the iPhone can do. So here is the collision of two potential forces. I can take a semi-ok photo of whatever with the iPhone and post that image up on the blog immediately. I suppose this could also be true of using Brushes, or other painting/drawing apps for the iPhone. Not bad... Now actually DOING that is a different story, but at least the potential exists! Ah, the 21st century....

I found some "oldies" cleaning out my flat files. It's always interesting to see work from awhile ago to see how much you've changed and also how much you've stayed the same creatively. Or what things still remain constant interest-wise...
The painting is probably from 2002 or 2003, and the Robot madness is from 2001. I did a series of screen prints called The Curious Predilection of Robots - this was an "outtake" test print.
