getting started...

Carolyn moved back from Italy! Its been a long 8 months... I'm a cheeseball and here are some photos of her...







We are renting a room together north of Chinatown. We painted it bright turquoise and I have a little table I can draw on:







It's attached to an alley with some pretty awesome grafitti in it, heres one of my favourites.



Now that I'm done the work for Volta I'm getting set up to start the work for my solo show in September. Here's Andrew Wilson, this will be his 4th summer working for me as an assistant:



His first task was to clean my studio. Its become quite a wreck, it took him two days to get the job done. Heres a before and after:





Then he got excited and played with a roll of bubble wrap for awhile:



Then we hung the bubble wrap from the ceiling and glued his head to it:



Carolyn's also been around the studio. She'll be running the mediumphobic.com store from now on. We're launching a new site and stocking it up with lots of new merch. I'll post it on here when the new site is done. I notice that I'm writing in short and simple sentences. It must be because I'm sleepy.



Now that I have an apartment finally and not couch surfing or sleeping at the studio everynight, my schedual is a bit more stable so i hope to post something on here every sunday. Except I'm keeping all of the work for my solo show under wraps until the opening, and all I'm working on is the solo show until then, so the updates may be lame... i don't know what I'll write about... I'll figure something out...

Since you haven't updated your blog, I'm just going to start guessing what work is going to be in the September show. Based on talking to you the last time, I imagine toothy penises. If I'm wrong, let me know, but you should really consider this - I think there is a real market for fanged penis. Not that we need any more, but there are alot of people who probably don't have one yet.

Good luck.
