I didn’t much to say in the days after Orlando. I just watched, and read, and listened to the same reports, interviews, think pieces, and heartbroken personal reflections that everyone else has. I didn’t have any words to contribute. Instead I just found myself making this. I’m thankful for having the process of collage to fall into. It was a relief to focus on something other than the hard fact of recent nightmare for a while. The quote is Margaret Cho.

Art Galleries are to storytelling shows what Chinese food restaurants are to comedy shows: there’s a 50% chance whatever show you’re thinking of going to will be held in one. Can’t say I have a problem w/ either. Come through to this one. I’m not telling, but will be having a great time hosting and seeing some of my favorite performers in the city!

UM…I can’t draw for sh#t. I’ve known this since at least 1st grade. Anyone who knows me knows this. I have no illusions. BUT…Somehow, I got invited to be part of the ridiculously entertaining Sketch Fighter competition at the 2015 edition of Boston Comic Con. For the uninitiated: teams of 1 standup comic and 1 professional comic artists are teamed against each other with each team member taking turns drawing a comics-related item/character/scene. Their team member must then guess what it is and the first person to guess the correct answer wins the round.
The crowd was live, the prompts were awesome, and the artists and comics really brought it with their respective talents.
That said, I CANNOT draw, thank God I’m funny…sometimes.

Just…whoa. I was very happy & honored to learn that my recent Superman prose-poem/collage piece has been framed and ensconced on the wall of a very cool individual. Best of all??? It’s in the bathroom! And as we all well know, the bathroom walls get the longest lookin’ in the house. This is legit the zenith of my visual arts career.
