this new image is for a show that is suppose to open tonight in brooklyn at factory fresh,

goodness, what i liar i have proven to be. instead of sharing amazing things that relate to drawing, ive just been drawing. this was something that i had wanted to do after my last show, thinking that not only could it fill out the work a bit, but that some interesting discussions could possibly come out of it.

as i am waiting for the work to arrive here in the city i am reading about this incredible show that i am inviting everyone to come and see with me, 'Mummies of the World'. It is the largest traveling exhibition of mummies ever assembled. ever. assembled. my most sought after muse. bodies encased in layers of stories reflecting and cultivating unparalleled creative feats. histories torn from these newly assigned authors to be rewoven into the emperors new clothes.
a quote from the show regarding ornamental body modification, "It's clearly got some kind of meaning and it had a purpose — I'm willing to bet," said Gill-Frerking.

if LA is too far i will recommend the jack burman show at clint roenisch closing on the 10th.
