Eric Joyner Show Opening

Headed over to the Eric Joyner opening tonight. I like robots, I like donuts, I like art. It’s a trifecta of goodness.

Banksy, Brewster McCloud and Nashville

The infamous stencil grafitti artist [Banksy] hit L.A. recently. It feels odd to seem honored that he’d come here all the way from Bristol, UK and paint up the town! Ha ha! He even got rid of the previous stencil of a maid sweeping stuff up under the wall and put up a new one […]

Jett Jackson’s Studio

I went and visited Jett at her studio today. She has an awesome space at the Santa Fe Art colony. Click the picture to get a huge pic and scroll along to view the panorama. The great thing about Jett is she’s fairly prolific so everytime I see her I get to see a bunch […]

3 x 3: Alfredo de Batuc Benefit

With three days of art gallery shows there was no way I was going to make it out clean. Friday night started out with Rachel and a show called “Remixing the Magic” [LINK]. Rachel and I have developed a simple code word for going out to eat. We just leave a message on our answer […]

The Belly of the Beast – A New Painting

I just got my new painting back from the framer and I love it. I bought it at one of Jett Jackson’s shows a couple of months ago. It’s called “The Belly of the Beast”, Los Angeles being the beast. I liked it because it reminded me of the downtown area and the 6th street […]


I picked up my little painting today after an aborted attempt with Jill and George yesterday. Two weeks ago I bought another Jett Jackson painting at the Santa Fe Open Studios, but she was going to be at the Beverly Hills Affaire in the Garden and I had her hold on to it. I ate […]

Santa Fe Artwalk

The Santa Fe Art Colony [LINK] had its annual open studios this weekend. I completely forgot to shoot a photo of the Jett Jackson painting I bought, but I’ll pick it up in two weeks. Jett wanted to keep it so she can get a serigraph edition done for it. Cool, I’ll have the original. […]

Random Muse-ing

The weekend before I left for holiday I actually purchased another of Jett Jackson’s [LINK] paintings. She was showing some work at a show in Beverly Hills and I was hoping she’d still have this one painting that I really liked. I went the first day of the show to check and someone had given […]

Where’s The Nearest 12 Step Program For Art Addiction?

I really need an intervention. Twelve of us from work went in together to buy the “Twelve Stations Of Ptolemy” folio [LINK] from the recent Shag show at “La Luz De Jesus” [LINK]. First we had to find twelve people who would want their respective zodiac sign. It turned out to not be that difficult. […]

Jett Jackson, Arteest

Every year there’s the “Art in the Park” festival that goes on where I live. I call it “Fart in the Park” behind its back. Quite honestly it’s a lot of C grade artists hawking art that’s not good enough to be on a refrigerator. But, no matter what art show you go to, there […]

I’m All Artsy Fartsy

Since I’ve been on a bit of a shopping spree as of late, I headed over to Wacko / Soap Plant / La Luz De Jesus [LINK]. They’re always good for some cash outlay by me. Being a fan of low brow art, a couple prints caught my eye. Well, almost anything with tikis on […]
