g'bye Yomemite :(

So, this week wraps up all our time at the Yoseite Studios. I sit here at 4 AM glossing a couple pieces for the last time. I decided to spend my last week here painting a giant piece for my livingroom and it might be my favorite I've ever painted (come July I'll be putting it out as a Comic Con exclusive). I've spent so many late hours in here blasting music, laughing at jokes spoken over partition walls to funny people, yelling 'Fuck!' alot when I screw up but mostly learning. I'm looking at the first painting I ever did in here years ago on the wall and it's awful but sentimental to me. I think I've come a long way since then. I love painting. I absolutely love it. My brain can't stop creating. I've never felt this satisfied artistically in my life. Spending night till morning flipping 6 foot wood blocks and feeling my legs hurt from leaning over wet paint is the vacation of my life. I'm gonna miss it in here ...*

..and while we're on the subject I really have to acknowledge the artists in the space:

Seonna Hong, Souther Salazar, Mark Todd, Esther Pearl Watson, Martha Rich, Megan Whitmarsh, Saelee Oh and Korin Faught. Seriously a spoil of riches in talents AND nobody's stuff ever looks alike!

So, we are having our last party and sorta art/yard sale tonight Friday, June 26th from 7PM - 11:55PM
1302 Yosemite Drive Eagle Rock

here are a couple studies that you can check out when you come bye:

Vulpes Lagopus (Arctic Fox)
12" x 36"
cel vinyl on wood

Slumbering Panthera Tigris
7" x 36"
cel vinyl on wood

Boy Wonder
18" x 24"
cel vinyl on paper

after the party I'm headed to The Steve Allen Theatre for the midnight show of 'The Show Where TREVOR MOORE Does a Talk Show Thing and JOSH FADEM Does Some Other Stuff Too All In One' where I'll be doing a lil' stand-up. Should be fun!

AND Saturday night at CHG the absolutely amazing Korin Faught will be having her solo..!

SO ..there are 3 ways to see me this weekend. See?! I love you !

I don't know, Carlos. Those "studies" look like kick-ass finished paintings to me! Beauties.

Now that Yosemite is closed up, have you all moved to a new space together, or is everyone doing their own thing?
