Two pieces at Corn Bred Gallery

Emer at Cornbred Gallery generously asked me to put some art up at his gallery. I'll be having a show there in November! Cornbred is amazing- Emer's doing an incredible job. We ran into each other at Gather Atlanta which is how this started for me (well, and Emer and I did live art at Five Spot together a few years ago).

Anyway I'd put two pieces in for the art party that was there recently:


I think I should make my lines bigger/bolder and maybe try to use color in the future- my pieces look kind of subdued next to the bright, beautiful paintings around them (e.g. that awesome Slimer).

Steve Sharkey's first video

Sharkey tests his brand new helmet cam!!

Mostly it's raw footage- we will be editing future videos to be tighter, and I think Steve will talk more too which is my favorite part (though I love the beautiful beach too).

Steve Sharkey's letter to GoPro

My good buddy Steve Sharkey (of just got a GoPro Hero helmet-cam because he's amazing and hilarious and I can't wait to see documentation of his life. We were hoping to film him (me on a secondary camera) at Dragon*Con.

I think Steve has the potential to be the next MrChiCity!! If you haven't seen that dude's videos, MrChiCity Goes to McDonald's is one I have watched many, many times.

Sharkey is working on getting his first video together to post to the SharkeyParties YouTube channel, but unfortunately he has lost the camera in a Florida river! Damn!!!

I have to admit I was slightly worried about this possibility occurring when I received the following text message from him that same day:

I'll call u later filming on the jet ski

Maybe you have to know him personally but I think it's pretty funny and a little tragic; here's his email to GoPro, hopefully they'll send him a free one or something:

I purchased the GoPro Helmet Hero cam 8/13/2010. As of yesterday it is now lost on the bottom of a river. I was filming on my wave runner, with the cam properly attached to a bell vented helmet, with the helmet strap that was supplied with the camera. I was tubing, fell off the tube, came out the water, with a helmet and helmet strap on my head, but no camera. I am definitely not satisfied with the product, especially the buckles and fastening systems you offer. I was planning on having a lot of fun with the GoPro Hero. I was just trying to be a Hero, now I feel like a Zero. The quick release buckle seemed to act like an easy release buckle. I don’t feel my use or activity was extreme or abusive compared to some of the footage I’ve seen on the web site. I hope this is an isolated incident and a buckle malfunction. What can we do to resolve this buckle issue and the loss of the Hero? The first few days I had to play with the camera I absolutely loved it.

Thanks for you time and concern with this loss

Steve Sharkey

I love this guy!

Revised commission piece.

The notes I got back from Steve Sharkey (of were essentially, "It's perfect, you just gotta add a joint and huge balls to it."
