Tool - Stinkfist (Nightmare Before Christmas)

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Things have been crazy. I'm working on a 6 foot long, wall mounted assemblage. I haven't really done to mainly true assemblages since I had my show at CBGB's. I hope to be done with it by tonight and then I'll take so photos. So between that peice, freelance, and of course work I haven't had the time to keep the Slug up to date. Sorry peeps.

I hope this cool little vid holds you over. It takes one of my favorite Movies and sinks it up to my favorite band. Enjoy...

A Little Bit of Footage From The Twinkies and Robots Show

Jason May did this cool little video of the setting up of the Twinkies and Robots show back in November 2008. So check it...

Another Upcoming Show...

I'm in a show coming up in March, called "The Libertine Collective ReArt Exhibit". It's a group show with a bunch of real cool artist. All the art is made of trash and other found objects. It's the first time in a real long time that I'm going back to my assemblage roots. But I figured with all the sculpture I've been screwing around with, why the hell not.

So if you are looking for something fun to do on Friday, March 6th, between 7 and 10, come to the opening. It's at the MAC 650 Artspace/Gallery in Middletown CT. As always free food, booze and entertainment.

Oh yeah by the way, The date of the reception on the card bellow is wrong. It is the 6th.

Later, Joe D.

The LEGO Opening...TONIGHT!

So I know it's kind of last minute notice and everything, but I thought I would just let you peeps know about the show I'm in tonight. The LEGO Company is having an in house Gallery show at the headquarters located in Sunny Connecticut. I have ten pieces in the show. All the Twinkies and Robot paintings I did, four of my sculptures including the one I collaborated on with Carrie Swider, and one new mixed media illustration which I just cranked out last week. That's it down below. The opening is tonight February 5th, from 6-9pm, at the LEGO Systems, Inc. 555 Taylor Road. Enfield, CT 06082. If you are board, please check it out.

Above is the final illustration, and below is the original drawing. The final piece was 11"x14".
