signed it! (we WILL have the hussies website up soon. promise.)

Last week, Max, Justin and I were all on their roof after the AIDs walk, "winding down", to put it eloquently... or legally... and began to notice the complete lack of art in the surrounding area. So, of course we agreed to do a mural on one side of their roof. We bounced around a few ideas, but ultimately this seemed to be the missing piece.

Since we had a square in the middle of a skyline to work with, we thought about somehow utilizing the space by making it seem like someone was actually hanging out in the square, for instance : maybe all you saw were legs dangling at the top as if someone were sitting there, or perhaps a girl would be leaning on the edge. Anyway, we came to this. Noelle Raffael (, a new friend we made today helped us with it, and did an awesome awesome job at that. We really enjoy painting murals, so if you ever need a mural done, please don't hesitate to call us. We have references.

I was rummaging through some of my old work today, looking through as much as I could so that I can actually compile an actual professional website. What a drag. But it must be done, so I've started collecting and organizing. Anyway, during my search, I came across some old paintings I did in Rotterdam 2 years ago, and I thought I might share them with you because they are actually pretty sweet. I need to paint more like this again. I remember how much fun it was. I locked myself in my apartment for like a week, watched 4 seasons of Six Feet Under and smoked a lot of that Holland weed. Good times.

By the way, NY is good. Still on the job search. It's only been a little over a week though, so the search is probably exactly where it should be. Applying to lots of places. I very much hope I can get a job that utilizes the fact that I can paint and be creative. Fingers crossed. Wish me luck.

Today is my last day in Los Angeles. I've packed everything: studio, bedroom, including all the other spaces that I've occupied over the years. I have to admit, I'm a little nervous and a little nostalgic and my mind is running at a million miles a minute. I had the great pleasure of cuddling for the last morning with my cat sly. Our flight is at 7:10 AM tomorrow.

We found a place to sublet for 3 months in Brooklyn, specifically Bushwick. Aaron nor I have been there, but we're hoping for the best. We're going to be living in someone's basement which is actually oddly ideal for NY summer living. I've been applying to lots of jobs and internships at galleries and museums around Manhattan and Brooklyn, but I suppose things will make more sense once we get there.

Oh, also, the photo I posted here is from the "Portraits of the Abstract" installation. It came out very well and we were absolutely thrilled with the turn out. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported!
