inner beast

been kind of obsessed with the minotaur lately. that's what happens when you're a lady in love with a bull. you get a minotaur baby. and he is cursed with being what he is and of representing all our human/animal lusts. the best minotaur in a film that i've seen is in "time bandits". sean connery does battle with it and proves victorious. it's hard to pick who i would want to win in a fight: a minotaur or sean connery. both are hairy beasts that have risen to a level of existence outside the understanding of us mere mortals.

shred city

when i was in middles school i would draw epic skateparks in my notebooks. big oververt hangings and sinister taco bowls. i was also very intrigued by the one they called Lee Ralph. he was an australian skater with an abe lincoln beard (yet ginger), a few missing teeth, and was always photographed doing a sweeper or a handplant. i would one day like to meet neil blender, lee ralph, and bill danforth.

lair of the minotaur

get lead out of yourself by the golden thread.


torn out of a book in a donut shoppe. don't worry, i have paid my karmic debt. have you ever read pinocchio? not the disney version, the real one? it's pretty brutal. at least that's what i gathered between my bites of donut and book vandalism. i don't remember this scene in the movie. this drawing is incredible.

hey so i illustrated a book called "listography" that comes out on chronicle in september. my friend lisa wrote up a children's version, and these are two drawings from it. one is a drawing of a best friend, and the other is a drawing of a favorite singer. it may not come out for two years, so dig it!

oh yeah

i've been going through old photos and i found these. i actually forgot about this really fun show that simone and i did in LA. it was called "sometimes it feels really good" and it was about the posters we've made along with some hanging art and a big old wall thread thing with painting. you can kinda see how simone started the thread thing here and then took it to the next level with her rad art for the new feist record here. and also here.
anyway, that was a really fun couple days and it ended with everybody playing music and eating snacks.

true love will find you in the end

i just learned how to play that song by daniel johnston called "true love will find you in the end". it is super easy and its probably the best song ever made.
