WORK: I lost my job. The school jerked me around all Summer, never giving me a straight answer as to when I would start, what my hours would be, and how much I would get paid. Then, at the last minute, they cut the program completely, leaving me unemployed. Needless to say, this is a devastating loss. Not only did I enjoy the job and the kids I worked with, but I also have rent and bills to pay on my own. To say I’m completely fucked would have to be an understatement. I have no idea if/when I’ll get any work from Penn, so yeah, things are pretty dire.
ART: I have a solo show coming up in December. It’s my first show since that little group thing I did in 2006, and the first showing new work since early 2005. I’ve been working on some new prints, with plenty more germinating in my brain and sketchbook. Hopefully I’ll finish a good amount of new stuff in time for the show. The opening will almost surely be on Saturday, December 6 from 6-9 PM. I’m telling you all now, so you have plenty of notice. So if you aren’t there, it’s because you choose not to be, and are an asshole.
MUSIC: As I’ve said many times, I am rarely able to be creative with my art and music at the same time. Regardless, that’s exactly what I’m trying to do. While I’m working on new art for the show, I’ve also started working on new music for the final Dark Disco Club CD. So far things are going well, but I’m sure we’ll be well into 2009 before it’s complete.
LIFE: My car is damn near dead and has a range of maybe 10 miles before it dies for the day. My Batcave still pretty much sucks, mostly because I can’t afford to get it going, and also because my slacker landlords still haven’t replaced my carpet. Also, I think I should get a big tattoo on my chest.
