new studio new studio new studio

I'm pretty excited this week cause I got a new studio... Andrew and my buddy Daniel and I are sharing it, it's big and cheap and has a shower and kitchen...I've been working on it all week, getting the walls fixed and the floor painted and the kitchen operational, its a lot of work. Here are some shots of how the space looked when we got it:








When we are done fixing it up, hopefully it will be a lot less gross... The good news about the space is that it is right across the street from a meat packing plant, and no one wants to live across the street from a meat packing plant, so I doubt we'll get booted out so they can tear it down and build condos (which is why I'm leaving my old space). The bad news is that its across the street from a meat packing plant. It doesn't exactly smeel like meat and it doesn't exactly smell like shit, but it smells like something in between the two... Like someone shit his pants and died and was found 3 weeks later... But at least it won't get replaced with condos...



While I was working on my show this summer, I would occasionally see an albino squirell while biking home through the park at 6 am... I saw it the other day and stalked it to get a photograph...He's a sly little fucker, this is as close as I could get...



This week I also finished my work for the Toronto International Art Fair. I'm showing some black and while pen and ink stuff this year, here are some scans:





Man, I have to stop drawing birds... I think my next kick will be Botony...or Entomology... I haven't really decided yet...

What else what else. The Road of Knives is starting up again, Zak, Shawn and I are going to be working hard all year to finish the comic, and I believe we'll be releasing it next year at Fredericks and Freiser in NYC during Zak's solo show.... I'll post my pages as I draw them... I'm working on a page right now, well, making changes to an old page actually, we are re-vamping it a tad...
