Whee! Owen and I got a nice write up in the Times Union about our "History of the World" show which we awesome. We were even referred to as "drawing nerds", which may just be my new job title. Plus I thought I'd throw in another (sick of History of the World posts? I hope not . . .) piece from the show I'm finally getting the time to tile together from the scans I have. Here's my Ronald Reagan, a companion piece with Owen's Maggie Thatcher.

|"A Concept of Four at Two", 22" x 22" Gouache on paper|
|"Bicentennial", 22" x 22" Gouache on paper|
These are Owen's "Primordial Action Figures" which are both pretty and funny. They totally take on little characters in my head. He makes these from the scraps of some really beautiful wood from his job, and brings them home for his daughter, Mae. These ones are special for the show.
|"We Are All Descended From Homeless People", 22" x 30", pencil and gouache|
Just a little reminder from me to you.:)
The right is a collection of Owen's subway drawings from London. Top left is this collection of drawing about his mid-life crisis when he buys a sweet car and goes and hangs out at Stewart's all day. Below that is my beloved "DMV".
|"Ghosts of the Reign", Gouache and pen|
|"The Lord's Typewriter" 22"x 22" Gouache on paper|
A close up of the canonball battle that got pretty experimental - love the color of those tickets and the craft paper!
This is my homage to the internet - a series of tubes that always ends up at cat videos.

I had a blast doing this little piece for Maureen Adamo at Las Vegas CityLife about a skeevy ticket firm out there: multiple instance of fraud perpetrated by a non-lawyer running a law firm (which in itself is illegal.) Reminded me of some kind of wild-west huckster from "Deadwood".
