i'm excited to announce that i'll be participating in this year's monster drawing rally, an annual drawing marathon thrown by the starry-eyed artist-run organization, southern exposure. this local institution has been supporting the growth and nourishment of san francisco's contemporary art scene for over 30 years, and the MDR is always one of their most anticipated events.

over a five hour period, shifts of artists, more than a hundred and thirty total, show up, draw/paint/collage/design and the works immediately sell at a fixed price of $60; it's a mad dash for the ones you want. grab a beer and watch the artistic process in action.

with proceeds going towards soex's exhibitions and artists in education programs, this is a great way to get out in the community, pick up some cool artwork, and meet your favorite local artists; if you're in the mission friday march 5th, i strongly encourage you to come. I'll be drawing from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, but around all night. i hope to see you there!

< many thanks to courtney fink, without whom we would all be adrift in a sea of unprogrammed art >

d o g s i n s c h o o l .


a quick endorsement for the dogs in school project, which i recently contributed to with friends from pixar and around the country. my piece (poorly reproduced, i'm afraid) is graphite and watercolor, with cardboard frame from kateri tekakwitha elementary school, ontario, canada and grade two photo from stiver's academy, livermore, california.

the event was organized by patrick prendergast and opened at the screaming sky gallery in portland, oregon two weekends ago; their proceeds benefit the portland farm/adult developmental disabilities arts group project grow. congratulations and many thanks to patrick! the show remains up until february 26th, so if you're in the area, please visit!
