Hi there. News flash. So tomorrow night (Thursday march 15th) I'm going to be participating in an art auction to benefit an organization called Save the Waves. they are an awesome organization that rescues different surf spots around the world from being destroyed by whomever might destroy them. this is from their website:
Save the Waves is an environmental coalition dedicated to preserving the world's surf spots. Our goal is to preserve and protect the best surfing locations on the planet and to educate the public about their value. Save the Waves works in partnership with local communities, foreign governments, and other conservation groups to prevent coastal development from entering the surf zone.
Here is a wave I've enjoyed that some people are planning to destroy down in Mexico;
So it's a good cause for everyone and if you live in the city you should check it out there'll be a bunch of artists participating, and ill be contributing the original art from that one t-shirt design i made a few posts down (pre-photoshop). It's at 111 Minna, a gallery here in the city.
hope you can make it, sorry for the short notice.

So, I'm bored and just wanted to write something that I've thought about from time to time over the past few years. I've noticed that most of my favorite painters out there today are consistently ladies. Sure, there are tons of dudes doing amazing stuff but for me, being into traditional painting (maybe more specifically figure painting) and wanting to see it move forward with originality and awesomeness, these ladies are doing the things right now that hit me the hardest. It seems that this has not always been the case. anyway, who knows but i just thought id share this amazing opinion that i have. So here's a few of my favorite girls who i think are by far kicking the most ass in the world of contemporary figure paintings, feel free to set me straight. ok, have a good weekend.

Hi, happy first day of March 2007. February was pretty cool. As Americans we honored presidents and love. Love day may be international, though I don’t care enough about that stupid holiday to find out. Love day is stupid but George Washington is cool, even though America was’nt really his to fight over in the first place. Abraham Lincoln is cool too, just ask everyone. It almost snowed in San Francisco which is crazy. I don’t use my heater in my apartment because I spilled wax in it so it’s been really cold, even the socks in my drawers are cold. It’s probably not as cold as other places, but cold for me. I read a book too. Anyway here’s a thing I did in February. It’s a t-shirt design for this surf shop, you can buy one someday soon at said surfshop. I'll also show you a drawing of a jacket and a photo of Jesus coming on Oscar day. I have allot to do this month because I will be in some art shows around the nation, but mostly in California and Canada, in April. Ill tell you about those later. So here’s to March! St Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Thanks for stopping by.
