Hey Guys and Gals. I am writing a bunch of articles for Santa Barbara’s citizen journalism website City2.0 in which I am critiquing movies that are being shown at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. If you are interested you should go ahead and look at the following link that goes to my part of their website ‘A Sober Perspective‘ (I know its cheesy). Later on I will repost some of the articles on here but during the festival I am leaving them just on the City2.0 web page. I hope you read and enjoy. Please let me know if you think that I should change my writing style or layout.

The Sweedish band The Kife just recently released an 11 min song that is part of an opera that they created along with Mt. Sims, Planningtorock and the Danish performance art group Hotel Pro Forma. The opera is called Tomorrow, In a Year and the song that they have released as a preview is called The Coloring of Pigeons. Please please please give this a listen. It is epic in its feel and will keep you interested through the whole song. I can’t wait until the album comes out and I will be seeing this on stage (god willing).

A friend of mine, Saul Gray-Hildenbrand, is producing a daily comic blog for our local Santa Barbara citizen news website City 2.0, called The Bellicose and the Bucolic. They are all single frame comics that are inspired by conversations that Saul has overheard and then written underneath each image.
I can’t help but smile at each one, or at least sit and wonder, ‘In what circumstance would anyone say such a thing?’
I hope you enjoy these examples. Keep up the good work Saul.

So I just finished my first quarter of a Solarplate Printmaking class taught by Elaine LeVasseur. It was a wonderful class and Elaine is such a fantastic teacher. I highly recomend this class to anyone who lives in Santa Barbara and has free saturdays. Anyway, here are the prints that I made that I am fairly proud of. Let me know what you think.
This is an intaglio print (drawing of a piece of art I have)
This is a toprolled print
If you want to see these in bigger sizes and or my other work you can check out my flicker account here.

So a friend of mine, May Yang and I started a collaborative project where one of us starts a collage and then sends it to the other. The other person then adds to it and sends it back. This goes on until the collage is deemed complete.
I know May from Tulsa. We went to high school together and, while I went to school for medical photography, she went to the Maryland Institute College of Art for Print making. So jealous. Any way here is the result of our first two collages:
So this is the one that I started and every other one that you see is an addtion that either of us made
This is the one that May started
