News From March 2008

Barry and Clare at the Riverside Art Museum...

Image Description Here
Barry was sighted out back near a church preaching sermons on UNREALITY. They had just finished hanging the show and were off to get ready for the opening.

Craig Stecyk was there in matching RVCA shirts. And Clare (AKA Peggy Honeywell) played a few songs.
Image Description Here
Nolan from RVCA was there too.
Here are some samples of the artwork:Clare 01, Clare 02, Clare 03, Barry 01. This Barry thing I think is new. He buffed tags with button-up shirts tacked over them. It was really great.

A Visit to RVCA: Inside Look

Image Description Here
Brendan and Wendy were busy putting the finishing touches on the ANP Quarterly magazine. Hiding their faces because of all the illegal graf they do. It reminded me about the last time I shot Brendan and Wendy together. I went in to go over the Jim Goldberg article I did. Lovely Skye was looking in to see what was up, Stew was handing me a box from Liz, who was busy sending other boxes to people while the young secretary was answering phone calls.
Even loyal pawn JGonzalez would have to comment on this, wouldn't he?

Heavy Flow Day

Image Description Here
Been working very heavily on various projects: 1. A new ANP Quarterly is coming out soon and I did a big article/interview with photographer Jim Goldberg, which has taken some time to edit and arrange. 2. I have a show coming up this October in LA at the Roberts and Tilton Gallery, and have been working on paintings and printing photos for that. 3. Deformer is (cross my fingers) supposed to come out in September, which means I have to finalize it right now! and of course, 4. Toy Machine, continued brainwashing of the loyal Toy Machine pawns that inhabit the earth in wait of their overlords call to arms. PS: Supposed to be filming for the Emerica video too! Plus! I am married to the lovely Deanna who is always keeping me busy!

I think Mike wanted us to do a sex scene with real sex.

We only did a fully clothed polaroid session.

Polaroids are great for shooting dumb photos of yourself naked.
You can shoot them and keep them secret so nobody can see them.

Or just put them on public display at art shows or on the web!
Image Description Here
That was a lot of hair, er, schlong to edit out. Luckily in '95 I was way skinnier.
Image Description Here
Polaroids are great because you can manipulate them before they develop. Deanna hides under the covers.

This is Ron Cameron, I used to call him Rim Chew (because of his RC initials) but he really didn't like it.

Polaroid Film a thing of the PAST?????

Image Description Here
This Polaroid was from Halloween 1984 or earlier... (From L to R my brother, mom, and me as a skeleton/devil) (these days I could have just zipped up my 'skeleton hoody' all the way.)
Could have been before I started skating, or right around then. Go to this painless petition and sign it (in vain even) to Save Polaroid!!! (Do any of you use it?)

Geoff hangs himself out on a ledge...

...In a slightly suicidal attempt to show me his ninja skills. It was pretty Swayze at the time.
I got a new computer.
With any luck (although there is no such thing as luck, regardless of how much I or anyone else uses it for lack of a better terminology for good fortune) or shall I say good fortune? (is there really any difference?) It will not explode on me like my last computer did over 10 times. (3 really bad) My last computer was so bad I feel like a a bunch of motorcycle driving miniature humans were inside fucking things up like in Tron. Who says being obese, or rather size doesn't matter? No matter how big you are, it doesn't make you benevolent. --------Subscribe to ANP Quarterly!
