Back from New York

I'm back from New York. After attending my first gallery opening with some of my own work on display, I've decided it was pretty sweet and I want to do it again. Thank you Liz for curating the show (and inviting me to contribute) and Stay Gold for having such a sweet space.

It was great to see some old friends out there and being back in New York just feels great. I miss it every day.

Here are some photo's from the night, taken buy Tennessee's own Jenna Adcock. "Do what?"


This is what the gallery looked like from across the street all night.


Inside was unbelievably crowded as well. I didn't really get to see the show until I went back the following day, I wasn't nearly brave enough to try and inch my way around the gallery.


Not 10 minutes after I had arrived, I heard that they had run out of free booze (coincidence i swear). I was extremely happy because I thought that pretty much proved that we had a successful turnout. But then I thought that everyone would clear out and that was a disappointing thought. Nope. People didn't leave, they just simply went to the bodega on the corner and bought their own alcohol. Pretty sweet indeed.


Here's a guy with a mohawk looking at my stuff. I don't know who he is, but I think I may have seen him earlier in the day at my Alma Matter, SVA. So thanks for coming.

The show will be up for the remainder of the month, so check it out if you can. It's worth it just for Christy Karacas's two pieces (and a little bit of new animation). If you haven't seen Barfight or Space War watch them now and then go to the show. And you can buy a strong man while you're there.

**ALSO**

I'd like to retract my statement about the deviants at Warner Bros. Animation. I found my girly marker doodles, they were not removed from my desk. I am sorry if anyone's taste was insulted. I realize that if deviants were going to plot the theivery of girly marker doodles, they would take Bruce Timm's and not mine. I'm retracted.

see you when I see you,
Uncle Phil

Learned about your blog through the James Jean blog. Have enjoyed your doodles, and particularly the Christy Karacas animations--most notably "Space War". I have dutifully put these in the folder on the desktop where I keep the rest of my pornography.

Wish I could go visit your show, but alas, I am here on the left coast with the rest of the hippys anarchists homosexuals and abortionists. Noting the title of this entry "Back" from New York, and your references to Warner Brothers, I'm assuming you're from El Lay.

I've been to New York once, but I'm just not "street" enough to brace myself against the teaming throngs of urbanity for any sustained period before calapsing into a fetal heap--also I get too easily lost on the subway. So I do the best I can to "represent" here in Davis California, driving in my electric vehicle and making sure to stay vigilant for any signs of traffic that might emerge from the "frog tunnel". Nothing as yet though.

Thanks for sharing--also the vintage strips--I appreciate these also very much.
