Bye bye Flying Fish blog......hello new blog!

I turned 30 yesterday.

I've decided to start a new blog leaving this one as an archive of the past two years.

I will leave this blog with saying that turning 30 and finishing my first book manuscript all within the same 24 hours was very very satisfying.

Visit me here from now on:

Friends who are doing cool stuff!

Derek is an old friend of mine, boyfriend of my best friend and super musician. His new band the Cave Singers just release there debut album on Matador and their video just went live this week for an amazing song "Dancing on our Graves" you can read about it and watch it HERE.

My friend Seyta, one of my only close friend left over from high school, runs this incredible business called Duchess. She makes custom men's suit's. I'll let her site speak for itself but if you happen to be in NY and can afford a fancy suit, well hope to it they are only there for two days- November 12 & 13th!

jill bliss of blissen was mentioned in the NY Times magazine last Sunday in an article about the Gocco. I blogged about it HERE.

The next 5 days

The rest of the week includes:

Thursday morning I am meeting with Steven who runs the Lawton Gallery at UW Greenbay where I will be guest curating a show in October 2008 called "Hand-Me-Down". Later in the afternoon I have a phone meeting with the publicist from Princeton Architectural Press regarding book stuff. At 5 I meet with Cris (my editor) who will be helping me get my media together for this weekend's talk at Maker Faire.Then I play a show with Wooden Robot at Cactus Club at 10.

Friday my entire day will be spent doing preperation for Gallery Night (7-10pm) at my gallery Paper Boat. I may have mentioned it but The show is titled "The New Witch" with work by Xandar Marro, Pippi Zornoza, Micaela O'Herlihy, Kim Kisiolek, Polina Malikin, Katy Horan and yours truly. I can't resist the postcard image we used from Providence artist Xander Marro, it's a cloth patch that comes with a zine she put together titled "Witch".
You can see photos of the show HERE if you are interested

Saturday I get up at 5am to fly to Austin for Maker Faire. Enjoy a little Texas.

I give my talk.

I am back home working on the book and have band practice as usual.

Milwaukee Magazine Best of 2007!

Some nice press we weren't expecting. Too bad they didn't list our next show date on December 8th!

The New Witch at Paper Boat this Friday!

My other Blog which I always reference just got written up as a blogger "Blog of Note" which is pretty rad. If you keep up to date with that one you will realize why this little guy gets neglected all the time......

This show I curated at Paper Boat is already open but the reception is next Friday. There is some amazing work in the show, if you are in the area you should check it out!!!!

You Are Beautiful

Aaron from skyhigh skate board shop sent this link last week and while cleaning out my inbox I rediscovered it. You can click on the letters to see who did what, I did the "L"

Flea Markets & A Book Deal

Apparently I am not capable of maintaining all these blogs, myspace pages, email accounts etc. since I really was under the impression I had posted hear more recently.

My excuse to myself is that I was in Chicago shooting for the film at Renegade Craft Fair and then took a quick in-and-out trip to New York for the relaunch of American Craft Magazine. That's a legit excuse right? But still I wish I could stretch out the hours in a day to get more done, and to relax...... If you are interested you can read my other blog HERE.

I did wantto share my new favorite photos set that I just uploaded onto my personal flickr account from a few weeks ago when I went to the Bethesda County Fair with Joe and Kelly. It was the most organized flea market I've ever attended. It was actually more like a giant garage sale than a flea market but you get what I'm sayin' right? Here are a few catagorized photos to get the idea and if you want to see the rest they are HERE:::::
Mixed Color Tea Candles
White Swans
Fake Fruit

Did I mention I got a book deal with Princeton Architectural Press?

More on that one soon.
