I heard someone complaining the other afternoon and the intended
recipient of said diatribe merely rolled her eyes and said,
"Oh, go blog about it..." I found it really amusing.
Unfortunately, I shan't be complaining herein, but updating some bits of information
floating around the Camp. Upon reading through more of your queries,
I have narrowed down some of the more common questions into some hopefully discernible answers.
of you have been asking which artists or artist have had significant effects upon me. I could only answer by saying that
ALL art of all kinds that I have been exposed to has been shaping
and shifting, morphing and eroding me into the person I am today.
Both good and bad art! I've learned just as much from works I have despised as I have from ones that made my eyes leak. But more specifically, some of my favorites artists are Aubrey Beardsley,
Egon Schiele, Stanley Mouse, and Rick Griffin. This list continues
ad infinitum, but for the sake of space and our dwindling attention spans, these four shall have to suffice.
interesting question posed was concerning the differences between writing a song and painting a picture. In all honesty,
there are many differences, but the majority of the experience is
highly similar. The main difference is the end result. But the process
is so akin, that if one were to peak his or her head through my ear
and into my brain, you probably wouldn't know what were the makings
of a song and or a painting. One of the most beautiful and rewarding things about creativity is the opportunity to interact with spontaneity and truly not know or understand what your doing
until long after you've done it! As long as you are in a safe environment, maybe wearing a helmet, and are hurting none in the process,
I would highly recommend pursuing activities that encourage spontaneous thought. It makes your brain tickle, and apparently that is
good for your brain.
have been numerous questions about the solo installation in Los Angeles at the end of the Summer. To which I can tell you
that it is still happening, it will still be awesome and it will be
up for free public viewing for approximately three weeks in September.
Any and all info pertaining to this event will be posted in the
'News' section! Come and check it out here in LA, then when you are
vastly disappointed about the show, you can write a blog about it.
I love you guys and I really appreciate your energy and support!
