Halph Knotts a New Leaf

All half drawn yesterday.
Scanned, flipped, now hear.

Upside down or not.
have to avoid hearts,
like real life,
it gets cliche.

Parts of puzzles,
not sure where to go with 'making' these final.

Hay Eddie

I think it was friday.

maybe a backdrop for the band, black and white glitter?
6-7 feet wide, to hang upside down,
whatever that would be.
Eye got those pics,——

——man you people are sick...
(consider me onboard...)

possible titles,

shoe gazing night people
apothecary drones

Epiphany Hood Designs

Dreaming in Chrome

Finally made one.
Just like high school, I managed to invent a molten mess of liquid chrome, melting roarschock. Time to pull out all the stops and look for some hoods in the local auto yards!.
Here comes the Iwata.

Logocentrifuge Detractor

Seemingly unrelated, titles are similar. Done many years apart, this logocentrifuge logo has no place (originally made in the same vein of some backdrops for JG Ballard or  Philip K Dick), although it may have been a good sticker to apply to this work, now long gone. A collaboration with dad here for my MFA Hunter thesis, never shipped and hence trashed due to lack of storage space and discussions of how liquid would leak no matter what. The first test cracked the half inch plexi and no others were run afterwards. It was an attempt to make something in the same vein of the lava lamp. If I win the Lotto (which I don't even play) I may re-build it one day, since i still posses the pieces. Even the chain driven adjustable motor were in full capacity before its destruction. notice the dog urine on the base, from being in the machine shop so long. Beautifully crafted, trashed circa 1998. 

note— this is also a tribute to Philip's dog shown here who later died from drinking antifreeze someone somewhere left lying around.

Not sure why at first but after making them I realized my influence from scanning an Etro design at work for a Postcard.  It was a design made in an exclusive way in which it would be difficult to reproduce as a continuing pattern. They wanted this dress scanned and it took me hours to piece it together as a pattern. Many of the high end designers make what seems like continuous patterns completely un-repetitious (for quick detection of forgeries and knockoffs from China). Design houses in the business of attempting to avoid copies being made of their designs intrigued me since then. I create patterns in my own work with an appreciation of other unknown designers endeavors in the fashion industry. maybe I should make more mistakes on purpose.

Bad Trucker Redux

Digital only

and a sketch—
Drawn today, halved scanned & flipped,
cutting my usual efforts in half.

Here's a link to the one i was talking about last night, that i did in Grad school, except i made it fancier. See link under title.

For those who did not hear my conversation with Brad, I did copies of people showing in Soho while I was in Hunter Grad school in NY, David Diao was one among others and the above piece is my version of a pic Bad Trucker sent me of his studio in an email.
Do a search for his stuff on youtube, under the name BadTrucker!

Postcard from the edge, Half...

A card found on the streets of NY already written,
although my name is not Jorge.

Not sure if this was after the birthday party for Wavy Gravy on the iron boat called the Frying Pan, multiple DJ's, and amazing events between rooms becoming hybrid soundscapes in the name of Soundlab of the time.

Actually, I think this was found before that when I/we lived in Hell's Kitchen when I first got to NY in 90.

Not remembering helps remembering things every once in a while.
tahnks again KK.

Collectors of Detritus

Moar here, this time the other sides,

eye figured they knew it was me...
inspired by a postcard I saw at Jan's, I couldn't figure out what was on the front, and then after looking for about 5 minutes-(no exaggeration) I had to ask what it said on the address. She said it was her name and address, somehow the East Village post office figured it out.

Fairly easy to figure where this one is from in the last post, Printing shirts, no money, etc.
I'm not even a Beasty Boy fan, cept 4 that jazz album they did-(the in sound from way out), reminded me of the koolness of Stan Getz.

Like anyone cold clean up the place there, I am still searching for pictures of my myriad of transient studios at the time. Always more fun as a space than making stuff.

Moar fun with the cities Collectors of Detritus.

Moar Postcards from the edge

A Polaroid battery (ie. instant punk haircut),
and ticket stub from Cop-Shoot-Cop show 1995. 
(tomorrows back is pretty high-larious)

DeathTrip 69, unknown data

I killed Frank Stella

All fronts again from KK!!!, thnks again, and all written backs tomorrow. If you know me and the Moosicks a bit, you might figure out the cards with the stories. (To be connected later in some other form)

Postcards from the underground

Big Daddy Roth 
eat your heart out!

Unicycle accident with egg rain

Hard to describe this, doesn't do the original justice. In Amarillo, Texas I was driving along a deserted back road where I witnessed one of the strangest murals I had ever seen. An abandoned bar with a frosty mug of beer sitting on what appeared to be a female torso, sans arms, legs and head. Just as I looked (with no-one around) I swerved into the other lane and a cop in the mile or so distance saw me, finally drove by and u-turned, going by while doing a wagging finger warning me to pay more attention.

Tasty treat of postcards and various things collected by longtime frend KK in Austin, of Direct Hit fame in Dallas. I have been given the great opportunity to show at her house there in July sometime this year...moar soon!

Photoshop 5 screenshot

Digital, actual size
(actually my screen back then, a 21 inch apple monitor
big enough to heat my Greenpoint loft).

...and a book I still haven't read yet.
Still looking for more.

Screens from the past

All Digital only.

Check the middle frame, if you use mac then you know.

I am not running out, am just saving the best for later. Kind of getting these out of the way.

A Quick one

Digital only,
me & GH, 2005

A quick one, (pun intended) sent to me by a friend in CA and then me pushing the pixels a bit. Could be a good anti-pop album for Electrocute.

Absolutley unfinished, 4-now

Digital only, began around 1993,
adjusted late February, 2009

Readjusted, warped, etc. I should maybe finish the original reason I did this.
Would look best printed giant maybe?
maybe when the cup becomes half full again.

Halphened and flipped, finally

Finally I sketch one halfway, scan it and flip, not so obvious. Starting to wonder if I will run out of these ideas.

So many ideas after visiting frenz up north, and seeing a show in FW of an old colleague making it into a museum.
