Ok, the reason for this post is to promote a show happening this upcoming weekend. It is my friend Zak Smith's solo show. I've mentioned him on here a number of times. We met about 5 years ago when he emailed me and asked me to be in a group show he was curating, I jumped at the chance, and being in that show led to my NYC gallery representation... Incase you do not know Zak's work, some of it looks like this:
Thats a photo of him at the end there... On his leg there is one of my old monster drawings... I think I've mentioned that on here before too, I just think its cool that he has it...
ok, so this friday, which is October 10th, Zak has a solo show at Fredericks and Freiser gallery here in NYC. In the back room of the show, Zak, Shawn, and myself are showing the entire Road of Knives project... I haven't posted my new pages on here in a long time, but the three of us have been working away on it... Zak will also be showing another collaborative project as well, which is sure to rule. Ok, if you are in NYC, come out! Here is the info, I pulled it off of Shawn's site...
