Robert Graham

Good lord: My boss introduced me to the artist Robert Graham. Brillllliant.


I just found out that I got 2 tix for the sold out Sigur Ros show tonight!!!! This is a dream come true and I absolutely cannot wait!I have wanted to see them for years. People are being really big meanies and trying to sell their tix on craigslist for 150$ each. Bad karma...

For Erin....

Stumbled across these two gems from 2000....yowsa!


Two artists that I have been watching recently are Jason Polan and Maxwell Loren Holyoke Hirsch. I was recently in contact with MLHH and much to my delight he has just updated his website. It is stocked full of goodies like this:

and this:

He has loads of work that will blow your mind. I recommend checking out his illustrations section. Wowsa.

Second up: Jason Polan! Now I swear that this is the nicest person I have ever not met. A few months back I bought the ridiculously entertaining "The Every Piece of Art In The Museum of Modern Art Book". Now, you can buy this book for a mere $20 US,

OR you could take full advantage of Polan's insane creativity and grab this:

Deluxe Edition $100

Included in the Deluxe Edition:

* The Every Piece Of Art In The Museum Of Modern Art Book
* Complimentary admission and guided tour, by Jason Polan, of The Museum Of Modern Art
* A hotdog or pretzel right after your tour
* Your favorite piece of art at the Museum Of Modern Art hand drawn for you

I am certain that I will be posting more about Jason as I am completely infatuated with his attempt at combining artistic practice with humanity skills. Jason Polan-I applaud you.

P.S. Check out the sweet little note that he sent along with the book.

I feel so grown up...

On Saturday morning, Matthew and I woke up bright and early to walk to the beach to watch the sunrise over the Atlantic's crashing waves. We were all huddled up under our Tidewatch blanket. We were talking about how much fun our vacation had been, when he pointed to a rock to my right. 'What does that say?, he asked me. I leaned forward to get a better look...and this is what I read:

For anyone who knows Matthew, you know that this is the most perfect way he could have possibly asked me. He is such a kid at heart, and that is why I love him.
