I spent the morning in Henderson, MN at their annual Sauerkraut Days festival. I was hired by the United Church of Christ to draw a rendition of the Last Supper with cans of Frank's sauerkraut on the table. It took me 5.5 hours, but the drawing is complete! These of images from throughout the morning.

Last fall I signed up to participate in the HateBreeders print exchange portfolio, with an edition of 60 prints! I just finished all of mine up today. The theme is based off of the Misfits song and was inspiration for us to create an 11" x 17" landscape print of anything that just plain pisses us off. I went for the ultimate disgust in American patriotism, the super stretch Hummer with a patriotic paint job. I call this one "America's Pride." Looking forward to seeing the other many, many prints in this portfolio!

Today I installed two of my sculptures, the Lonely Tree and Ms. Daisy, in the Bethesda Hospital Sculpture Garden in St. Paul, MN. They will be there for the next year. I'm excited to go back and see them in winter! Thanks to my amazing friends Yousif, Andrea, and Brockman for helping me out!

I was commissioned by Dave Schroeder to route and paint signs for the upcoming eyeo festival that is happening here in Minneapolis from June 27-29. The festival has an amazing line up of speakers, one not to be missed! And these signs will be behind them when they do their thing.

My favorite artist duo, FriendsWithYou, does it again! Rainbow City, their gigantic immersive playground for kids and adults, is in NYC, located on 30th St. in Chelsea. Think 16,500 sq.ft. of colorful, inflatable art. Worth a trip back to the East Coast? I think so.

Today I found out that I will be the sidewalk chalk artist at Sauerkraut Days on June 25th in Henderson, MN. I will be drawing a 10' x 20' version of the Last Supper, complete with giant cans of Frank's Sauerkraut on the table. I am looking forward to this, you should come out and see me between 9am and noon that Saturday!

Ah, it's that lovely time of year again when the air is warm and thousands of high school seniors graduate into the real world. And have all night parties to celebrate this. Last night I drew on a riverboat that cruised the St. Croix River for the School of Environmental Studies' all-night extravaganza. However, I quickly learned that drawing on a boat is not as romantic as it sounds. The rocking of the waves left me feeling dizzy the entire 3 hours. Anyhow, here are some of my favorites from the night.

Currently at Lombard-Freid Projects, a gallery based out of NY, NY, is an exhibit titled, "Play Time." This is a solo exhibition featuring the work of Cao Fei, "one of the key artists of the new generation emerging from Mainland China." Layered with ambiguities, these works manage to reflect our time of modernization, while maintaining an essential, playful spirit. It's smart. It's silly. It's undeniably charming. Everything I could wish art to be.
