Last we spoke I was off to New York City, the big time. According to plan I was going to blow up overnight. sell all my work to a famous gallery and hang out with celebrities, appear the Daily Show, etc. In reality I showed in a small bar in the village, met a few cool people, got someone to talk shit about all my work unbeknownst to them it was mine, survived a hurricane, ran drunkenly through the streets of Brooklyn barefoot and shirtless with my friend Steve during said hurricane, lived off beer and hot dogs and found my two favorite bars in the world, Cha Cha's at the end of it all, Coney Island. If you don't know Cha Cha's, you don't know nothing! and the infamous McSorleys. Historical pub in the village with 2 drinks on the menu, light and dark, both were great and Steve and I knocked back about 12 pints of the stuff, a piece. Came back broke, did a little work here and there, kept showing with Travonna and 83 Gallery and setup at Independents Day with Cap City Creatives. Great day there, sold two pieces for around $200 total. Both of which I failed to take photos of apparently.
Let's see what else? Finally got back in touch with Hayley Gallery in New Albany who I had talked to last Spring and they asked for tamer work, well I delivered and now have 4 pieces showing up there, swing by if you're in the neighborhood.
I also finally got it together enough to show with Daniel at CS Gallery and had a great time at the opening there. Even tied with another artist for the prestigious Roscoe Award and put $25 in my pocket without having to sell a piece.
That pretty much brings us up to present day, I'm sure there are details missing but those are the big ones. In the coming weeks I'll be moving with my girlfriend into our first place together, CzechsForSEX!!! will be playing 83 Gallery during Highball on Oct. 28th or 29th, Friday and I've heard rumors of a simultaneous bootleg release of them, Then Mickey Mauser will be playing the following day down at Skatopia's big halloween bash. Should be a raging and brutal weekend. We also played a show 2 weeks ago without a pa so, being mauser, we said screw it and went accapella and screamed over full volume amps and drums, never say die!
That is all for now, new pieces in the works, stay tuned!
