EMERALD MOON Art Show #2


I have a new art show up @ Radio Bean. 53 original drawings of real-life Burlington, Vermont people & places, 11 of which are brand-new for 2018. All affordably priced (many are just 40-50 bucks). You can buy 'em right off the wall! Go see with your own eyes, or peruse this online index of what's available... There's still a few copies of the book remaining too!

TENANTS' RIGHTS CALENDAR

Knowledge = power! I was lucky enough to spill ink all over this new updated 2019 Tenants' Rights Calendar for PROJECT GENESIS, a very vital non-profit organization up in Montreal's C├┤te-des-neiges neighborhood. They are the real deal, working in solidarity with the community on housing rights, anti-poverty, access to services, and much more!... Get to know more about this awesome crew & support their work if you can >> http://www.genese.qc.ca

WINTER IS COMING.... (official musicomix video)

As the long, cold, and snowy winter comes creeping in, we'd like to present the musicomix video for "I'm Not Afraid Of the Dark", captured very recently @ the Up North Sound Shack... More audio-visuals are on the way!

KYTHIA WOODLER remix / video

I directed this new music video (& remixed the song) for a very unique Montreal songwriter you may not have heard of... I've enjoyed collaborating with Kythia a few times this past year. I love that she's truly doing her own thing & doesn't fit into any known box or scene. Almost nobody seems to be aware of her work, but I feel that will soon begin to change. She's unaffected & direct yet highly original & even bizarre in turns... a gift! I heartily recommend following her artist page for ongoing transmissions...

RAT LAFTUR!

is it jazz? is it junk? is it jubilation? MAYBE.
Side A: https://youtu.be/_V7N_rgoIcU
Side B: https://youtu.be/8gxN9yiMlYQ
If you enjoy long-form improvised musical adventures with spontaneous lyrics in Japanese, English, & unknown languages, then get this in your ears... A chemistry experiment consisting of Maya (voice & guitar) + Cathy (sousaphone) + myself (drums, tape recording, mix-down, album art)… We are now available for live bookings at children's birthday parties, supermarket grand-openings, & condemned building demolitions…

LATE BLOOMER (official musicomix video)

Much like the aforemelodic "Autumn Strawberry", sometimes good things can take longer than we might like. This little number for both the eyes & the ears was shot on a snowy winter's day, not so long ago...

INK ON WOOD

Lately I've been drawing some larger portraits drawn onto construction scraps! This one of Angie & Ananas was done with india ink on wood paneling, 11x16".
