You know you won G. Won what? The wet T-shirt contest MF!

this one's mine.

Studio 27.28 located on Girard Ave. recently relocated to 11 W. Girard Ave. and changed the space name to Slingluff. I have no idea what that means, but the location works in every aspect... except for my birdhouse. The previous location was a bit sketchy, and one wouldn't be too surprised at the sound of gun shots. I thought it would be funny to have my bird fall prey to the bullets of and angry fly-by shooter. This joke did not go over so well at the new location, but I still laughed. A few other memorable birdhouses are posted on this entry as well, but I neglected to get the artist's names. Well, maybe they have a blog, and can promote themselves.

Better Not Bring Your Kids

Insults vol. 1
Shit Talker
One show just isn't enough for me in the month of August. In addition to the Bone Tail exhibit at Little Berlin, I've also got six new paintings showing in the Rittenhouse district of Philadelphia at Square Peg Artery and Salvage. The series of paintings, titled Insults, are oils on wood panels, housed in leather spin clamshell boxes. Works in the show include Asshole, Bitch, Dickhead, Cuntface, Shit Talker, and Fuckface. As you can probably tell by the titles, it's not for kids. Two of the paintings have been posted on this site before, so included in this posting are a few more. 

Darkness MF, Darkness!

Shame on you for missing this one! Last night marked the opening of Bone Tail at Philadelphia's Little Berlin. Four artist, Salvador Cerceo, Dennis McNett, Shawn Beeks, and Damon Aners, came together under the curator Tyler Kline to present paintings, prints, video and sculpture which delve into the dark recesses of our minds. Focusing on myths and fables, the artist involved used new media and traditional visual arts practices to bring life to timeless psychological and social conflicts, presenting them in a contemporary context. But be warned... everyone involved brought their darkness to the table and bet the full house. The show runs through August 30th at Little Berlin, located at 119 West Montgomery, Philadelphia PA 19122. Gallery hours are Saturdays from 12 to 5pm. For additional images go to
