I know, I know, long time, no update. But I’ve been busy! And you can come see me in person, displaying previous works, offering prints for sale, and demonstrating my current Revolution Pennant project at Cambridge Artists Open Studios on May 9 and 10, from 12-6pm each day. Any prints unsold at the end of this weekend will be posted on Etsy, too, so out of town pals can get a chance to grab some stuff.
I’ll be at Cambridge College, 1000 Mass Ave, right in the front window, sharing space with some fantastic visual and performing artists. It’s space #38 on your program, #1 on your bus line.
Still doing the Revs word series. Took me a while to get ones done this year, largely because of that whole Brazil thing, but these have been up at Gillette since September.
Daigo Kobayashi, “Skill.” Love this Kari Heistad shot so much I broke my rule about not using source images from losing games. Great portrait of a solid, underrated player.
Jermaine Jones, “Rogue.” I still can’t believe this guy plays for us. “Rogue” admittedly isn’t always a positive word but it’s the right one for a guy who plays on his own terms.
Andy Dorman, “Guide.” Wanted something to express friendship and support, the elements a guy who’s gone overseas and come back to his rookie team contributes. So glad he’s back.
Charlie Davies, “Bounce.” For his dance style celebrations, but more because what else to say about this guy than “comeback.” Man, do I love having to do a banner for him that is not for depressing reasons.
Patrick Mullins, “Twist.” That little extra spice from this year’s rookie banner, suggested by my buddy Adam.
Teal Bunbury, “Boom.” Like the goal call for his first US appearance.
Oh, right, I do paint things, not just write up travel diaries, right?
I never did get around to posting the entire story of the World Cup in Germany in 2006. This is the original trip report, and, except for some dead links and a little clarification, hasn’t been retroactively edited. The text below is what I ran up in July of 2006.
In this episode, we go home and write up all the miscellaneous details that didn’t fit in the rest of the story.
In this episode, we almost don’t make it to the final.
In this episode, we spend a lot of money on plastic shoes and watch Germany hoard all the goals for the entire round.
In this episode, we walk around the capital.
In this episode, a lot of cultural notes, makeup tips, and street hustles.
In this episode, we’re either at the beach or in traffic.
