Gallery Exhibit Tonight (10/28/15) At Seven Minus Seven

Hello again art lovers,

I hope you are well.

I’m just dropping in for a quick post.  Tonight, a large selection of my work will be exhibited at Seven Minus Seven in a grand reopening event.  The gallery is located in ST. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  My work (In the showing) has already sold out, but don’t fret.  The gallery will be taking orders.

That being said, if you find yourself in ST. Thomas tonight, drop by and enjoy the show.  Also, I’d like to extend my best wishes and a thank you to the gallery, the patrons, and the other artists in the show.  I will be a wonderful night.


Until next time,




Command – Shift (~) HAD-STEP-CRBL

Hello again art lovers,

1 hope all is well.

1 am.  1 finally finished up the long process of completing a new piece.  Honestly, I think finding a way to personify my ideas took up the most time.  The art work is the 19th addition to the Apoko-Lips collection.  1 was able to utilize a few new techniques and had quite a bit of fun designing and applying the make up prior to the photography process.  The mixed media work is titled Building Gods – HAD-STEP-CRBL and is the first in what will be a new sub category to Apoko-Lips.

Follow The Purple Cube

Hello again art lovers,

1 hope you enjoyed reading last week’s blog post The Tale Of Moby Dickhead as much as 1 enjoyed writing it.  This week’s post focuses on a brand new triptych!  This seems to be the first piece of art 1 have made for the Apoko – Lips collection in about two months and it allowed use of some new photography/emulsion techniques.  The piece also gave me an excuse to get naked, shave my head, and put on my smiley face war paint once again.  The triptych is titled “Access Program Legion Pathway Boom Tube” and seems to be a record of recent experiments, experiences, and revelations.  Admittedly, 1 employed the tools of exaggeration and drama quite a bit while arranging the symbols that tell this story.

 1 mentioned in Refresh Dream Machine Pathway Odinsleep that 1 do not plan to bog down this art blog with the cooky results or explanations gathered and symbolized in art work.  However, if you like to think different (1 don’t mean simply buying a Mac) and would like a fun book list, give us a shout from  1 have a mountain of ebooks by different authors that 1 have read over the last couple of years and 1 will be happy to share them with you for free.  Don’t fret,  1 haven’t become a complete fruit loop. Rhonda Byrne’s repetitive and not so secret book “The Secret” isn’t in the list!

Tossing Litter From The Synchronicity Highway

Hello again art lovers!

I hope you’ve all had a great week.

I did.  I took a break from restful days and spent a couple of them hammering out an eclectic mixture of overdue tasks.  The new-found access to different aspects of my personality (A sort of controlled schizophrenia) seems to have major benefits.  Selecting the proper program with the proper function for the proper situation has reduced stress, increased productivity/fun, and helped communication exchanges become more transparent and effective…at least for the time being.

Anyway, I finished up the art work and scans for “The Tale Of Moby Dickhead: A Heart Warming Story Of Life Finding A Way Despite Evolution”.  Originally, I intended for my 5 year-old son to do the art work but he refused to cooperate.  Go figure.  I attempted to have the drawings viewable in 3D, but it didn’t work out quite the way I hoped.  Despite the art not going exactly to plan, I do enjoy reading the story quite a bit…especially when orating as the acclaimed English actor/narrator John Hurt.  Oh, that’s right!  I forgot to mention that as long as the readers imagination is healthy, the story is interactive!


“The Tale Of Moby Dickhead” will be available for your reading pleasure next wednesday, June 24, 2015.


Also this week, A long time collector of my work named Lisa has commissioned me to paint over the faces of a commission she commissioned from me years ago.  She’s become enamored with painting over parts of paintings so I’ll oblige her and paint.  More news on this later, but for now, I’ll mention that I spent considerable minutes tweaking the information on the information page of my website.  Information is now as accurate as possible in current space – time.  If you love to eat information and desire more click here.


In other news, I packed up the pieces of a major sale!  That’s right, a 30 x 40″ canvas and a limited edition Deluxe Set  of Apoko – Lips 2014 prints will shortly be in route to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands.


If that wasn’t good enough, the mass of art was purchased and will be exhibited by Clay, a long-time friend and collector of my work who has returned to the island to reopen the Seven Minus Seven Gallery!


I’ll post more news about exhibit dates as soon as I have them.


I’m thrilled.  In my experience, it’s pretty rare nowadays for the gallery to purchase an artist’s work prior to exhibiting it.  Clay dances to the beat of a different drum in a lot of ways though.  That being said, the limited edition Apoko – Lips Deluxe Set is a collection of 13 high quality prints and was meant to come in a customized container of some kind.  Because of the fast approaching exhibit, the collector needed the art before I could get the specs for the container worked out.  I originally envisioned a decommissioned bazooka missile painted pink to contain the set of prints.  I’m not sure if this is doable though.  I’ll find out and let you know.

Some People Are Just Assholes But GRID Loves You

Hello again art lovers,

I hope the week has been good to you thus far.


I’m great.  I just finished up a new triptych that I’ve been working on for a while.  The idea originated back toward the end of 2013 when I did three quick sketchbook watercolors while in Los Angeles.  The concept was much simpler at the time, but over the last several months, some things were stripped away while other brain candy was added.  The new version is not as raw as the original and much more design oriented.  It’s also missing a devil penis but I doubt anyone will fault me for that.


“Some people are just assholes”, 2013


“Apoko – Lips#17 – Some people are just assholes but GRID loves you”, 2015

The Police Don’t Bangarang In Imagination Land

Hello again art lovers,

Whether you searched for eggs, celebrated a Middle Eastern poltergeist, got drunk or did all of the above, I hope you had a great easter holiday!


I took a break from commissions to create a new piece!  In fact, I have a handful of new works in the early “Study phase” that I’m really excited about.  Hopefully I’ll get the bugs worked out of them and the actual pieces created soon.   For now, I’d like to share my latest work.

It’s titled “Apoko-Lips#16 – Portrait of the artist kicking the shit out of cars #2”


The first “Kicking cars” piece I released for public consumption has been pretty popular and while I’m not sure I could ever capture the magic of the original, I wanted to try to create a new “Amp’t up” version.



When my five-year-old saw the piece he asked, “But where are the police?”  Laughing, I reminded him that the police don’t bangarang in imagination land.

The All New Is Now Operational

Hello again dear art lovers,

I hope you’ve all had a great week thus far!

I’ve finally finished building a new website to exclusively feature my new series APOKO – LIPS.

For me, the ongoing series Apoko – Lips is an attempt to take an impartial look at contemporary culture, the velocity of information and life lived online through high-tech touch screens. Actions and movements interrupted by glitch, are emphasized in the work as a “Note to self” or memento of the physical body and the external world. The Apoko – Lips series asks two questions. Are we detaching from fundamental components of our humanity with each new technological advance; or are we simply experiencing the awkward, embarrassing growing pains of evolution while propelling ever closer to a new golden age?
