So this is my last post of the year and my resolution of posting every Monday of 2009 was successful, barring that one post in August where I posted on Tuesday at 3am.

In the next few days I'll pin point what new resolution's I'll make for 2010.
My thoughts have become too intense and frustrated that I am deleting all of my news/science tabs and am looking forward to putting a deaf ear to world/local affairs for a while. Thats one of my resolutions for '10. Be mellow.

I got back from Arizona today and was able to haul back a giant portfolio of my high school and Jr. high artwork. Below are some really funny self-portraits...

"Self-Portrait with Parasites"
14"x18" Tester's model enamel on paper. Age 17. I remember feeling nauseous while painting this because to this day, a Surinam Toad giving birth is the grossest thing I can think of. Scroll down on this LINK..

"Self-Portrait with Christy Turlington"
9"x14" Pencil on paper. Age 15.
I have a ton more paintings I'll scan later.

Also, I am in the Dark Pop 2.0 group show at Last Rites Gallery in Chelsea.
Here's that piece for it, framed. Contact
if interested.

Opening is January 9th 7-11pm.

Participating artists include:
AIKO (Aiko Nakagawa), Lisa Alisa, Esao Andrews, John Cebollero, Joshua Clay, Molly Crabapple, Amy Crehore, Yoko d'Holbachie, Leslie Ditto, Mickey Edtinger, Mark Elliott, Eric Fortune, GAIA, Stella Im Hultberg, Sarah Joncas, Aya Kakeda, Ben Kehoe, Dan-ah Kim, Daniel Hyun Lim (Fawn Fruits), Danni Shinya Luo, David MacDowell, Mike Maxwell, Simone Maynard, Dennis McNett, Tara McPherson, Michael Page, Nathan Lee Pickett, Leslie Reppeteaux, Mijn Schatje, Tin, Dan Witz and Jaeran Won.

oh man, i remember this painting, i nearly threw up when i saw it for the first time. It made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and to this day i still have fucked up dreams of that tick clustered arm. Did you grab your kate moss marker piece that was in the student show? That was one of my favorites. And the toilet paper roll thinker sculpture and that strange dog painting, and the one of the candle at the window... what am i saying, everything is my favorite. I also think it's brilliant that you used testors model paint, the hobby shop probably loved you. Cheers man, TeeRoy

I bet Red Mountain Art department still shows the parasite painting in there slide shows. They did when I went there. 97-2000. Nice to see someone stick with their talents. I got 2D artist of the year at RM my senior year but then quit doing art shortly after.
