Tadanori Yokoo

I promised myself that I would never put youtube videos on my weblog, but then I came across his a couple weeks ago and knew that I could either write his name on a post-it note and lose it on my desk for years, or I could just embed this fantastic animation short from 1965 inot my weblog and know right where to find it any time I wanted.

Three New Paintings

Recently, I was aksed by a local organization to do 3 new pieces for their charity show they do every year where about 100 local artists provide pieces that they frame in 10 x 10 black frames and display in a giant room for one night. All the charitable folks from around the town show up and buy the pieces off the wall and everybody wins. Last year I even made money from it, which was beyond me because I thought I was doing the work for charity. These are what I came up with. The scans are not that great becasue I use 70% gray on black and the scanenr has a really hard time picking up what I am putting down. The paintings do not mean much or say much, but they are pretty and most anyone can appreciate them.
