Oh good, an easy one: yes.

Ask me something, but it better be good.

I sure hope so. I did have an aunt Ebbetha who used to gibber about someone she called the "Neis Ass" but she was far gone into neurosyphillis at that point, so no one was ever sure where she got the scars, or what the pipe bomb recipes were doing in her Joy of Cooking. She really loved apple sauce. :3

Umay was a Hapa model I booked to pose for my head painting class, mostly due to her extremely subtle and beautiful features. In the last three minutes of the sitting, I sprayed her freckles on by running my thumb over a stiff, paint-loaded bristle brush.

Katie West, friend of mine and accomplished photographic artist and writer, is selling prints for the first time in years. She very rarely sells prints, and probably will not do so again anytime soon. There are only ten days left to purchase.

I ask myself, and other people, this question all the time. I think it’s a tie between Dick Butt and Zybourne Clock.

"What inspires you?" is likely the #1 most-hated question that artists get asked.

I’ve always wondered why. It seems petty and elitist to assume that people who don’t do art are incapable of conceiving of how or why anyone else would, but that’s exactly what the question suggests. It’s a useless question because anyone who asked it, wouldn’t be able to understand the answer. And anyone who could understand the answer, would never bother to ask.

It’s like asking someone with a sunburn: "How did you decide on pink?"

Guilt, tea, a desire to impress, and most recently, a robot cigarette nicotine delivery system.
I don’t have health insurance and probably won’t be able to afford it for another 5-10 years, and haven’t been able to afford it for the last 7. So I make my own cures, as much as possible, and I brush my teeth every day and take vitamins and, as much as possible, I avoid junk food, overexposure to the sun, chemical filth, and viruses. I hear there’s a quasi-legal stimulant called MDPV that may be the poor man’s Ritalin, but I have yet to get my hands on any.

This is going to sound immensely harsh, but if you aren’t absolutely positive that art is literally the only thing you can do as a career without serious reprogramming, it’s probably not a good career choice for you. Which is fine, because it can be a night job, or even just a hobby, and there’s no shame in that. But if you want to be full time pro artist, making your living from art, you don’t get second-guesses.

Except late at night, when you’re months past your deadlines, you’ve disappointed everyone, you haven’t called your mom in weeks, and your food stamps have run out. Then you’re allowed a moment, maybe twenty seconds, in which to post a self-indulgent Facebook status and spend the next ten minutes fencing away "What’s wrong" messages from acquaintances who happen to be awake, too. Each "I’m fine" that you deliver, you believe it a little more, until you’re ready to stand up and get your tea out of the microwave and get back to work, slacker.

Pentel GraphGear 1000. Looks nice, feels nice, fairly tough, and comes in every size: .3, .4, .5, .7 and .9. Kinda pricey, though.

I need to buy some new ones.

TONIGHT in San Francisco, a live SWEATSHOP broadcast from my live painting at DisCu̴lTu̴re, the first and only drag/witch house night in SF.  Last time was incredible, and I ended up selling the painting right off the easel at the end of the night.

Cover is free until 11pm, $2 afterwards.

This was the piece I did last time, which was titled by the man who bought it:

“All the City Has to Offer”
Acrylic on panel
