I've been wasting time ENJOYING the panoramic photos of Panoramyx over at flickr. I open up the largest size of a photo and just wander around like a bug. I imagine I'm in an animated movie. Panoramyx is the nickname of Carlos Iborra and I believe he's from Spain.
Interview: Shepard Fairey
Apologies to Mr. Fairey!! (

Europa Film Treasures
still from "Der Einbruch" (The Burglary) 1920.
Came across this website today: Europa Film Treasures. It contains this little animated oddity: "The Burglary": "In the heart of the night, a burglar gropes along towards a newspaper kiosk. A nail puller and a flashlight are all it takes for this crime. All of a sudden, the morning paper is delivered… A punchy publicity stunt for the B.L.A., the Berliner Lokal-Anzeiger, the Berliner newspaper that fills in its readers in real time!"
Danger: You might waste some time here.
Free Stuff: '09 Calendar
Kind of late (blame it on Alan Greenspan!) but still useful: a 2009 wall calendar featuring some pictures by me. 18 x 24" poster on glossy 100lb paper.
Let me know if you're interested!
They'll ship in about 2 weeks.
Time to get your feet wet!
An average American contemplating the state of the Union: Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and the upcoming presidential inauguration.
New Bike
This one's for Leo Espinosa
Like that bicycle, new art materials and their peculiar idiosyncracies fuel my creative process and usually keep me on my toes and generally happy. The recipe that is working lately is absorbant paper, crayons and a big sack of old Pantone markers bought at a yard sale a few years ago. These fun and decorative geometric baubles have emerged and found their way onto the paper.
Just having fun y'know?!
