Too Much Teeth Grinding

The Clinton Body Count

THEY LIVE screening at The Plaza

Wednesday.... It's late.... Err it's early. Rain is coming down. Just got home from Elmyr. Brushed my teeth and shot a good 15 minutes of experimental portraits in the mirror.

2010 is the year where I pull all my techniques together and finish production on the large Blue Jughead series. I've had this huge build-up of blue objects in my house for the past 3-4 years. I need to refer back to the postcards, as they are some of the original test material for this set of work (hense they fall under the new work as well). The new work involves a set of (3) oversize rectangle panels, a set of (9) large square panels, (25) bottle opener blocks, (25) tooth pick blocks, (50) mc'big burgers cast in silver with painted container, (50) mc'frys cast in silver with painted container, (1) box of blue bubble gum cigars, (1) box of fine silver dinner ware, (5) hammocks, (1) full bedroom set, (1) refridgerator, (2) soda pop shop bar stools, (25) embroidered pillows, (100) cheeseburger paintings, (1) Extra Jumbo Dine-In Meal construct, (1) Extra Jumbo To-Go Meal construct.

The point behind these self portrait experiments is that I'm going to eventually pose for some of these panel paintings... The larger ones, as the Jughead and then render these images onto the panel in my monochrome oil painting technique. I'll use this new silk screen method to develop the under layer similar to what I did with the Kurt Russell piece, but on a more focused full figure scale/scenario.

Take A Ride And See Whats Mine

Was under the impression that I'd be able to get into the Plaza early to install this painting, but nobody is there. So I'm sitting over at the Righteous Room having a drink and waiting.
-
The piece was completed last night around 4:30am and then left to dry with the heat turned way way up in my place to help cure the pieces faster and pull moisture out of the air. When I woke the blocks were dry and at 3:00pm the shelves were dry. At that point, I installed the shelf hanger bars to the shelves and packed up my blocks. Grabbed some tools and hightailed it to the Plaza only to end up drinking. So... Iggy Pop is on the juke and the beer is cold. Life is still good enough.
