Here's a nice tidbit from The NY Times about his work from 2006: "Whether Nick Cave's efforts qualify as fashion, body art or sculpture, and almost regardless of what you ultimately think of them, they fall squarely under the heading of Must Be Seen to Be Believed." Also if you're interested check out this short video.

In honor of the inauguration, we wanted to post Rev. Joseph Lowery's benediction from a couple of hours ago. Some people found it childish and the ending offensive, but it was great to hear someone (especially a man who has been fighting for civil rights so long) having a good time with such sensitive topics and riffing on old blues songs. Nice to see the stuffy ceremony ending with a bit of laughter and good spirit. Amen..

"Driven by the notion that people die when their face is no longer recognizable, Urich haunts his viewers with faint sketches of anonymous folk culled from old family albums. With light pencil strokes, Urich sets tiny faces floating on vast expanses of paper, then overlays them with dabs of color and broad gouache strokes that resemble the bubble and burn of melting celluloid. The result tugs at the eye with the urgency of an image speeding across a rearview mirror." -Flavorpill - SF Weekly has some nice words.

:: Awesome Book ::

We love Travis Millard, and when Travis emails to tell us about his friend Dallas Clayton's new book entitled Awesome Book which he describes as "a magical Suess-like book for kids and curious adult-types". We know it's going to be worthy of your time and energy. Keep your eyes out for it and/ or buy one. If it sucks, blame Travis, not us, but we don't expect it to suck at all 'cause it LOOKS DAMN GOOD.

Hope some of you out there had some time off during the holidays... We took some time off away from the computer (damn, my gut feels bloated from drinking beers on the boat) but are back now and are ready for the shit to hit the fan. Got a lot coming your way in the new year. See you Thursday for starters @Paul Urich's opening @FFDG- Gone but not Forgotten... Above wishes you the best this 2009.
