computer basics

i did a bunch of proposals for a mural and i used the computer to make different colors and mess with the lines of my original drawings. i like the way these look. i ended up doing something totally different for the mural which i will show you one day but not now because it's none of your business. just kidding, it's just not totally done and well-lit yet. it's all of our business. i still would like to do one of these as big as a building one day so hit me up if you have a building or a billboard or something and want to bring me to europe or kentucky or whatever. let's get primitive and light. we'll paint the wall and get lunch and go to bed early. and life will be like that! we can bring our dogs and families and sit around the fire at night because your building that i am going to paint is in the woods somewhere. my friend chris' dream house is a warehouse by a lake. maybe we can do that and then he can move in. i am manifesting all this on my dream board. wishes and big drawings of hands and plants forever!

personal void for looking into

on view/for sale at
8564 Washington, Los Angeles, California 90232

personal void for looking into

conversation piece!
cool to hold!
just nice!

welcome to your personal void!

how to use:

1. lean against wall, brick, book or what-have-you about 2-4 inches from the wall
(note flat side down)

2. when the mood strikes, gaze into it's blackness. focus on the absence of anything. watch the surroundings drift out of focus. 

things to think about:

wait, there are ridges. is that wood? what did that tree look like
is this what it's like to look at space
is this what death will look like
old times
what's happening
what's coming up
looks like record sort of. what music comes to mind?
what's that sound?
what are you doing with your life
dinner plans

cover it with a scarf or towel (sold seperately) 
keep in a drawer
keep under your pillow

life charts etc

let us document the shapes and what they mean.
let us see new things in old ways.
let us consider the crevice and the crack.

both of these life charts have been made into prints by the pushing of water-based ink through a fine mesh and onto paper and are available for purchase in my online store here.

trans sun

maybe this is just going to turn into  a music blog? hasn't it always been half that? well i think about music a lot and i that's what i feel like. i have been revisiting this album lately. what a record. what a band! i saw them twice on this tour and my face fell off. it was wonderful! it's worth listening to this record again, 16(!) years later. i remember thinking it was like van halen and kraftwerk had a dumb baby. and they did, and it was this.

in finding this video and seeing this record cover again i just realized that i fully ripped off this album cover on accident  last year with this print:
shameless! could it be that these things burrow into my brain and then ooze out years later with no clue as to their origins? i feel like this happens more than i know. sorry trans am! but thank you!
