May I present to you, ‘Thrills & Fills,’ a long overdue gallery from an event created by my friends at Dozen Strand in late August. Click the image or [here] to be whisked away to the gallery.

Well.. I suppose to be overdue it has to first be due, and when you’re not actually hired nor in school, due dates don’t really exist.

Art Matters

‘Art Matters’ is a mixed-media piece entered in a show/competition at the Rogue Buddha Gallery in Nordeast Minneapolis. The opening reception is tonight, July 30 at 7. Come down or hit up the show quick-like, ’cause it only runs through the weekend!

This is a collaborative work between Rasta Tigries, Brant Kingman, Zarina Delmar, and myself. The actual art was printed on canvas and Rasta painted the check mark in.

More info at the Rogue Buddha Gallery site.

We’re gonna win, Twins

The Twins had to battle the Tigers in a tiebreaker game to claim the 2009 Central Division title. Rarely do I enjoy a jubilation photo so much; a lot of heart in this one, on a few levels.

Happy new year, baseball.

“Bassgasm,” First Avenue, Minneapolis

First Avenue, Minneapolis

It’s not often that I document body painting and  pure craziness at what’s essentially a rave in Minneapolis’ most-storied rock venue, but maybe it should be more often…Tell your friends! Seriously. I need a job, bad… a real job, but also freelance jobs.

Note: These photos would get a… PG-13 rating. You can make the slideshow full-screen or view the images individually via the icons at the bottom-right.
