memorial day weekend, 2013





I went clamming with Ian and friends this weekend and watched Blow Out, which was ridiculously good.  Brian De Palma wasn't messing around with that one.

works in progress



The top pieces are for some work I'm creating for a show at Prism curated by the multi-talented Serrah Russell and the bottom piece is a Bon Jovi commission (well...not for Bon Jovi but you get the idea).

White Nights



Have any readers seen this movie?  Judging by this sequence I would say it must be the best movie ever.

working with text


I've started to work with text again, a little bit.  This is from 2012 but more text is on it's way in 2013.

dance lessons



I just started my first dance class tonight at Velocity. I think repeat viewings of this MJ Thriller video really influenced my interest in dance, or at least choreography, so it only seems natural to link the two together.  For the most part I am happy to be a dance spectator but it is surprising how fun it is actually to give dancing a shot.

Yakima hike rattlesnake sighting!


I took this photo yesterday on a hike outside of Yakima.  About ten minutes later we saw a small, yet very intimidating rattlesnake on the trail.  He was very pissed but eventually grew bored of us and retreated back into the desert.
