Hey friends,
So I went rogue in Alaska and never quite came back to stationary life.

I'm going back out with a vengeance, and will be traveling for most of this year. If I'm feeling particularly ambitious, I might redo my website before then because it currently gives the mistaken impression that I'm predominantly a painter. Ha. I've been following some weird rabbit holes of late, and they seem to be perfomative genre-mashups that are difficult to explain. Here's a sampling of recent projects:

-Balancing books on my head with Eric Olson for Microsoft Research's Gigapixel Art Zoom Project
-Giving an educationally informative performance about bike touring, nutella, gangsta rap, and George Michael in Gotta Have Faith: The Single Lady's Guide to Solo Long Distance Bike Travel at Weird and Awesome
-Getting my mind blown by various On the Boards shows and then and writing/performing responses. Here's the first one I did on my own, and then here are collaborative responses with Eric Olson in which we did such things as play ping pong, play paper telephone about Checkov, and and talk about our deepest relationship insecurities while playing twister (apparently we like to respond to performance art through playing games?), and I made a paper doll of Eric and brought it with me to the performance when he was out of town
-Being interviewed by Obey
-Staging a geurilla Bingo game with Whitney Ford-Terry and Laura Elizabeth Becker at John Boylan's conversation series
-Taking a video crew on a field trip to the Zoo for an interview with Manifest NW.
-Collecting hair ties for six months for What We Make When We're Not Making: An Exploration of Downtime in the Creative Process... As Explained by Hairties, an illustrated performance at the Breadline Speaker Series
....and a whole lot more.

So... Yeah. Still painting, but not so much just a painter these days.

And yes I am still working on my graphic novel about Antarctica. But it's going to take me at least a few years, so I have no physical progress to show yet, just a lot of research reading.

If you'd like to stay in the loop about upcoming projects become my fan on facebook or shoot me an email so I can add you to my mailing list.
