This will be the last post about my first show…probably…pretty sure. I just want to thank the people that helped make it happen.
Without Tiemen and Talk’s Cheap, there is now venue and of course no show. He has supported myself and whatever Sideshow Massacre is since the very beginning. I’ll never be able to articulate how much his support has meant to me…he also printed the shirts. Unbelievable.
Darryl, notoriously from SixWordSkits took it upon himself to do the grindhouse event poster. He put together the animated promo with nothing but my drawing of vomiting zombies to work with and then adapted it into the infinitely puking zombies that played throughout the show. This run-on sentence is an attempt at thanking him for his technical know-how and generosity in making the show a proper spectacle.
Metropol printed all the stickers and posters. They never fail to provide fantastic quality along tiny timelines.
Adam for just doing anything I needed at a moments notice.
Most importantly. I need to put out a huge thank you to the masses of people that passed in and out of that scorching hot space all evening. I was thrilled to see so many friends make the trek and check things out. I am still shocked by the number of unfamiliar people that visited, chatted and commented.
It was a reality altering experience, I’ve never had my insecurities been washed away so thoroughly.
When it was all said and done, just about half the pieces went off to new homes and my stock of t-shirts and stickers was decimated.
I’m sorry if I forgot anyone.
Thank you. Everyone.
You can continue to see the work all month though. You should check it out. The shenanigans went down at Talk’s Cheap 556B Pandora ave. and that’s where it remains.
More pictures of my first solo outing, after this break.
The show is dropping in 12 days. My stress level is doing the exact opposite.
Jason Lamb was nice enough to plug my show in this weeks episode of his Punk show. You may know him from The Zone 91.3 morning show as well as his Punk Show
As always, you should listen to the entire show, the music is fantastic and features a lot of local punk. In this case, you should also listen for my plug from 26:55 -27:55.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about…you’re dead to me.
Second version of the art show poster. Coming from Darryl once again. Love it.
Share it around!
At the end of June I’ll be having a small solo art show. It opens on the 29th and runs for the month of July. I’m trying to get the word out, so if you know anyone who likes zombies, demons, vomit, poo jokes and ludicrous cartoon genitalia, let them know.
Downtown Victoria at the corner of Pandora and Government.
Contact me with any questions.
You may also be spammed with this message and updates over the next five weeks or so.
I figured it was about time for an update. Life’s been hectic and with a promotion at work, making time for anything else has been very difficult.
My most recent artwork was and is part of an Easterish show at the Absolute Underground Store/Gallery. If you’re in Victoria you should pop down, it will be there for a few more weeks.
Big thanks to Ira and John for putting the show together and providing another venue for my stuff.
Also for pizza.
Monster Party is back. It opened in it’s new Pandora St. location last Friday with a night of music and art. Featuring the art of Kelly Shpeley (plush robots, fantastic oil paintings and elaborate sculpture), Jessica Harvey (the monster face wall and door hand), Me (various canvases) and the man himself Phil Osborne (he built the world, we just lived in it). Read on for more pics.
