Computer Embellished Drawing

@yoyoha has sketched scores or twitter avatars. I scribbled his as a scant attempt to settle the score.

StorySlam at Venetian Social Club

A firsthand account of secondhand artichokes, told at my sixth First Person Arts event.

Acrylic on Cement Board • 48″x48″ • Main Line, Philadelphia

I put a large piece of cement board on the curb but the garbage men wouldn’t take it. I put a CURB ALERT on Craigslist but the hoarders wouldn’t take it. I put a painting on the cement board, it was gone within an hour.

Now I’m designing a tattoo for my wife. (Rimshot.)

Acrylic on Canvas, Paper & Cardboard • Fishtown, Philadelphia

The other evening I soaked in the sites, sounds and smells of Fishtown’s First Friday. Instead of leaving with some art, I left some art. It’s across from the incredible Johnny Brenda’s, go get it.

Summer Solstice at the Kimmel Center

You never forget your first hickey, even especially if it was given to you by a hot tub.

Colleague and pal, Kevin Ginsberg, cut his StorySlam teeth as well. Thanks to former student, Hahri Shin, for capturing our moments in the sun.
