If I Can Make It There...


And I did make it. Well, I got off the plane in Newark, if that counts. I have come to New York this weekend to attend a presentation by my good friend Robert Patrick, who was asked by La Mama ETC in NYC to give a presentation on his role in creating Off-Off-Broadway and as one of the pillars of Gay Theater.

(I didn't tell Robert I was flying across country to see him, so nobody tell, okay? Shhhhh...)

I spent the entire day yesterday, noon to 8pm, wandering around the city like Marlo Thomas in the opening credits of THAT GIRL, just drinking in all that culture. (Note to self, when going on a walking tour anywhere, don't wear combat boots. Ouch!) I did the Guggenheim Museum, and checked out the 2006 Biennial Exhibit at the Whitney Museum. Then shot some photos in Central Park and around the city. I will upload some photos here as soon as I can download them from the camera.

Today my host Kelvin and I are heading to the East Village to see Robert's presentation. Then we'll hang out a while in the Village, maybe hit the Eagle in New York or The Bike Stop in Philly, a bar (and a city) I have never visited. Then home to sleep, and back on a plane to return to Seattle on Sunday night.

More

Got a lot of positive comments about the last posted photo of Deon, so here's another.

Happy Easter

Odd it may be for an avowed agnostic (fagnostic? gaytheist?) to celebrate a Xtian holiday--but it gives me a change to share a shot from a recent photoshoot with Deon, a very talented model I shot last week.

Big Brother Is Flirting With You

With my new little Nikon Coolpix P2, I can return to snapping "diary" shots, keeping my lil camera on me at all times so I can catch things like the above. Watch for more to come...

Do You Like My Art, or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

First Night, Last Night


With my good friends Mack (left) and Anil (right), I attended the gala opening night for the Post-SEAF show at Art/Not Terminal Gallery. The space is incredible--great light, large without feeling empty, with a nice "industrial" feel with the exposes pipe an unpainted cement walls. Got me seriously thinking about renting the place for my own show, as it only costs around $300 for an entire month. Hmm...

Last night's event was well attended, and I ran into several people who had helped organize SEAF this year. They were very complimentary of my work, and I thanked them once again for all their hard work on the show. Another attendee was a totally-nude man in body paint and... well let's just say he was very excited to be there. I'll post a shot of him once I get it polished.

Wherefore Art/Not Terminal?

Tonight I head to the opening night gala for the post-Seattle Erotic Art Festival show at Art/Not Terminal gallery in downtown Seattle. I am showing two pieces from this year's SEAF, as well as "Zebra #1" (at left) from last year's SEAF, which was my first big sale. I'm hoping to sell all three works, after spending over $500 on archival, museum-quality framing. They look wonderful, though.
I also bought a little walking-around pocket camera, which I hope I can use to snap some pix of the show to post here. I was disappointed that I wasn't able to get any photos of the SEAF this year or last; perhaps the new spy-cam will change that.
I love having a camera with me all the time, to snap candids and weird little shots I find. My main camera, a Canon D-60, is far too heavy (and expensive) to risk it, so I got a little Nikon Coolpix P2.

Watch for more shots from the show. And if you get a chance, pop in and see the show, which runs the rest of April.
