My Palette Knife

While working today, I noticed how cool my palette knife looks so I took a picture of it.

Painting from 2006

This is a painting I had sort of forgotten about from 2006.  Just shipped it to a collector yesterday.  I think she’s rather excited to receive it so I hope it arrives in one piece.

Provocative Pigments Play in Pink

Today I was written up in the Contemporary and Modern Art Blog.  Thanks!

Pillsbury

Recently I was fortunate enough to work with the wonderful people at Pillsbury and Schafer Condon Carter Advertising.  Below are a few of the ads and some outtakes.  It was a lot of fun, and many thanks to everyone involved and to my team!  Styling for Cake Face by Clotaire (follow her tweets @itsClotaire).  Hair and make-up by Cindy Stutzel.  Thanks also to Kristen and Chris Barker, and of course the awesome Bennison’s Bakery in Evanston, Illinois.

Imacon PIII, Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard, and Ratoc FR1SX

For all the other photographers out there trying to hook up an old SCSI Imacon scanner to a new Mac, I hope this information is helpful.  *I am not responsible if this information doesn’t work for you, or if it screws up your computer.  But this worked for me. Details »

Marks Need To Be Made

I’m extremely lucky to have wonderful commercial clients for my photography and motion work, and I’ve had some great projects lately, but I miss painting.  Its been awhile since I made a painting, and the reality is that its not something I’m able to do between checking e-mails or photographing some amazing person.  So I’m gearing up to sort of disappear and get back in the groove, because marks need to be made.

Here are some examples of my most recent work, all of which are 43″ square, and the first two ended up hanging in Keith Haring’s old apartment and seen in a fairly recent New York Magazine article thanks to Cole and Garrett:

Many thanks to Golden Paints for the superb technical support and for making the great UV protective varnish I’ve used for a few years!

Holiday Inn Stay You Campaign

The kind people at McCann Erickson New York tapped me to shoot the new Holiday Inn Stay You web campaign.  We had a fabulous time shooting portraits for a few days at the decked out Industria Superstudio in the West Village.  A big shout and thank you to all the Industria staff for being so nice and helping make our shoot go smoothly!

Here’s a few samples of how the images were used.  To see several of them animated, please visit the “motion” section of my site.
