Gold & Orange...

Hello Lovelies!

I hope today finds you well and that those of you in the U.S. enjoyed the 4th! I discovered a great venue in Portland last night. The Empire Dine and Dance was featuring A Murder of Crows with a friend of mine so I stopped by. The group has about 15 members, a huge brass section and 3 singers. The venue itself was perfect; a huge dance floor, artwork on the walls and vintage decor that made me want to live there! If you live in Maine, check it out sometime.

I was recently featured in a treasury put together by Where Eagles Dare, a wonderful tattoo art shop on Etsy that not only has some great work but a great blog too that's interesting and more or less awesome. Take a look at just one of their great items:


And I've been busy working on some new photography for the shop! I just listed 4 new prints entitled: Golden Countenance, Giodesic, Tropicana 52, and Ant Brothers. These were all taken in St. Louis; a town full of great old architecture, signage and strange quirky stuff. Here are 2 of the new ones:



Let's wrap up with a movie review since it's been awhile, shall we Kiddies? The Unnamable is a lesser known 80's horror flick that would probably be pretty hard to find at your local video store but I bet Netflix would have it. Don't go out of your way though... Hahaha. The plot has something to do with a baby born in the 1800's whose too hideous to name so they don't bother. Then, this part-goat, part-lion, part-Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, part-George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic kid (no pun intended), kills its family and then gets holed up in a vault where in 1998, some college kids stumble on it while doing your typical "drinking in the abandoned house" bit and it goes downhill from there... if that's possible. Pay special attention to the "hoof close ups" that look like someone hand operating a couple of stilts. I give this one 3 corncobs folks.


Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

Hahah. Got to love the B rated horror videos. Great art features. I really like your art, by the way. It was so nice to find another fine artist on Etsy.
