Graphite and gouache drawings... The first one has a metallic acrylic background.




AND NOW FOR SOME NEWS!



This March 12th, a most amazing art and music event shall occur!
The 'Patterns & Portraits' show at The Garden

Chicago artists, all of them pals of mine,

pretty awesome bands, also pals!
It's going to be a night of pals, patterns, portraits, photo-taking, partying, and plenty of fun.

maren comes over sometimes...


...and we play dress-up.





i will take a bath and feel better

i will take a bath and feel better.

maybe cleaning is or is not

the intention

but now

after steeping for a while,

inside i am calm.

after sponging,

after hearing faint electrics from my bed

next door,

after pretending it was bob dylan,

after a false sleep and a blank dream,

then finally,

after i realized we

will never be too in love,

i stood up,

got out,

dried off,

put the camera somewhere else,

and laid in bed.
