My books are now open for appointments through the end of July! FINALLY. Go to THIS link to get in. I’ll be reopening books again near the end of July to fill up August and September. If you’ve been waiting, it’s time! Let’s go. Portfolio HERE.
12×16″ to 24×36″. They’re good quality, thick toothed, acid free paper.
Order by Dec 6 to get them in time for holidays.
no. 10 – Tokyo (quarantine paintings, 2020) watercolor, oil, gesso on arches paper, 18×24″ dedicated for Ken Shimura (20 February 1950 – 29 March 2020) “I never feared getting an infection myself,” he said, because he knows “how infection control should be done.” But aboard the Diamond Princess, “I was so scared of getting COVID-19.” “The cruise ship was completely inadequate in terms of the infection control.” -Kentaro Iwata, who has dealt with infectious outbreaks, including Ebola, cholera and SARS, for more than 20 years. “I’m choosing not to do it.” -donald trump, on masks
Prices go up after the 18th. Thanks you for all the support this year so far, I hope to add a few massive paintings to this list before the year ends. Large-scale prints will be available at some time in December. If there’s a book, it will have to be next year.
All the local galleries are full of artists that they were showing last year, my kickstarter to get full scale prints made did not get funded (really bad timing). I’ll eventually be releasing a small art book containing all of these, I hope. I had wanted to show them as a group but I do not think I’ll be able to do that. so,
here are the originals I’ll be selling. There will be a second post with purchase links on the day, and you’ll be able to message me to purchase as well. Full sized prints will eventually be available but I don’t have a date for that.
Paintings from Quarantine, a series, 2020
all are watercolor paintings. charging by size and scope…
We’ve seen so much real-world horror this year that it’s hard to top it. But in the spirit of all previous Halloween lists, I’m going to go ahead with this anyway.
In no particular order, the 13 movies you should be watching this week.
attack the block: a classic, 10/10
snowpiercer: uprising of the underclass. 9/10
people under the stairs: BELONGS IN 2020. 9/10
society: a better documentary than They Live. 9/10
contagion: it drags a little, but have you gotten your hydroxychloroquine forsythia yet? 9/10
us: class uprising, metaphorically. 9/10
green room: racism, cults, punk rock culture, innawoods. 10/10
the crazies: the kind of year it’s been. we didn’t realize our neighbors were this fucked up. 10/10
the thing (even the sequel is good) every year, all the time, we’re gonna find out who’s the thing. 10/10
children of men: how we’ve reacted isn’t much better. 10/10
invasion of the body snatchers: you can’t tell if people are assholes or not, until now. now you can tell. 9/10
the dead zone: we need this. we needed this a while ago. 8/10 (points deducted for effects)
dead snow: We all wish we had snowmobiles and axes these days. 10/10
The rest of the movies aren’t listed in order of best/worst, just as I remember them. Themes listed and my short thoughts, and a 1-10 scale for my personal enjoyment. There’s been a lot of shitty horror made since my previous lists (see here, here and here) (and a list of horror passing various analytical tests, HERE)
no. 6 – Wuhan (quarantine paintings, 2020) watercolor, oil, gesso on arches paper, 18×24″ dedicated for Dr. Li Wenliang (1986-2/7/2020) “I think there should be more than one voice in a healthy society, and I don’t approve of using public power for excessive interference.” -Dr. Li Wenliang “Now, the Democrats are politicising the coronavirus… this is their new hoax.” -Donald Trump “Trump has botched the response to coronavirus pandemic…classifying deliberations makes it harder for health experts in government without security clearances to be in key meetings. This is unprecedented, unnecessary, and damages our ability to respond to the pandemic.” -Gregg Gonsalves, a Yale epidemiologist “You, Dr. Li Wenliang, have been making false comments on the Internet, and will sign a letter of admonishment.” -Police from the Wuhan Public Security Bureau, Jan 3 2020
