Found this X-ray of mine in the garage the other day.. I can't believe its been 6 years since my neck injury in the ocean. I am grateful for everything and everyone, especially Ed Dimik and larry for dragging my ass back to shore when i couldn't move and saving my life, and my wife and kids for putting up with me when I couldn't drive, ride a bike or get around very well.

I took these photos of Psychobud at Radio City I believe around 1984/5. Saw them a bunch back then they were killer live, all great musicians. Their self titled LP is still great to listen to after all these years and I believe that back then they were ahead of their time, Waiting for the Accident and Sighs are my favorite songs on that album.

This is the latest mixed media piece I'm working on I've titled it Periphery and its 8"x10".
Im trying to reduce the amount of cut images from the media and incorporating more of my own mark making and drawing into these pieces. Im utilizing watercolor, variety of numbered pencils, ink pens and a bit of acrylic paint.
I'm using paper from old books and transparent paper i like the different shades of browns that these papers give.

I also am in the middle of a work in progress assemblage sculpture that I'm trying to wrap up but am at a standstill for the time being. i feel like i need to add a backdrop to the sculpture, something to add behind the couple holding the orb!
This one is titled Exiles Dirge and is 3" x5"
This one is titled Disembodied Voices and is 12" x 6"
The sculpture is 3 feet wide by 3 feet tall and has a variety of materials that make up the assemblage. wood, metal, plexiglass, an old clock body, 2 collages. Ive titled it - Colonize from Within.
