by-products

The lack of posting yesterday is the direct result of excessive thanksgiving insanity. I guess even mokeskine thursday got the day off.

I'm "It"

I've never been tagged before! Thanks Ramis!

I love finding new blogs this way. OK here goes:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

*5 facts about me
1. I was married and divorced before the age of 24.
2. I was born with one under-developed ear (I think the condition is called Congenital Atresia) so I'm partially def in my left ear. When I'm sitting next to someone or walk down the street with someone I position myself to be on their left so I can hear.
3. I have a lot of anxiety about...well... everything but especially hospitals, getting blood drawn and the apocolypse.
4. When I was a kid I used to have dreams about flying around my room at night and I could see myself sleeping. Now I wonder if I had some kind of out of body experience.
5. I'm itching to take a rode trip/camping trip up the Western Coast to Oregon and Washington.

I am tagging

I hope people don't mind being tagged. It's totally voluntary. There's no "no sex for 10 years" or "bad luck for the rest of the day" if you don't want to participate.

Dethroning

Colab_Install_small

Coming down from the show. All issues aside I think it went quite well and I can't give enough thanks to everyone who came out to support Sara and I!

carmichael_11_07_17
yes we did. we totally took a picture in front of it.

As I said, I feel like I'm coming down from it now which is bad because really there is so much in my head that I have to make and there's no time for life.

Please click on the above images for larger views and see a couple more pics from the show at flickr. When I get ahold of more pictures from the show I will post.

he she me we you too come

This week for Moleskine Thursday I'm doing something a little different:

Sara in my Moleskine
(click on image for full view)

Although this is my Moleskine sketchbook this isn't my sketch. It's the efforts of the extremely talented (and pretty to boot!) Sara Brum (aka Mrs. Massee) gettin busy in the Moleskine.

At the moment Sara doesn't have a website up so you NEED to be making your way over to the Seth Carmichael Gallery this Saturday evening to see the mischief that we have been getting ourselves into for this collaboration show. This Saturday, Nov. 17, 7pm-midnight!

gallery openings = safari

NataliaFabia_11_07_03NataliaFabia_11_07_04

I really love the name of Natalia Fabia's show "Hooker Safari" (at the Corey Helford Gallery). I kinda want to just go around saying it all day pronouncing it "hoo-kah sa-fah-reh!"

Hookers, glitter and free drinks. That's what I call a safari.

Meanwhile across the street at Project Gallery:

I didn't get a good photo of Scott Belcastro's work but all the installation work was cool.

Trying to land

LandingSketch_small

I'm really into layering right now. In my sketchbooks I'll use pages over and over again just by painting or gesso-ing over an existing sketch and working on top of it. Trying to incorporate this into my paintings more.
