Object Impermanence: When My Whole Studio Burned Down

It is with a heavy heart that I must report I lost my beloved studio and all its content on the Morning of August 9th in an early morning blaze that in one of the M0XY buildings. I am eternally grateful that nobody was hurt and everybody is safe.

I am heartbroken about the loss of work… about 20 years worth, but even more so for my studio mates and neighbors.

I was able to secure space for the build of the Gift-o-Matic in North Oakland (gift-oakland.com) build in North Oakland. This is mostly in thanks to folks who donated to my GoFundMe Campaign. Without them, I seriously don’t know what I would have done.

The Flu is No Joke

Sorry about the long hiatus folks.

The flu was pretty devastating this year…coma, month stay in the hospital, walking, pneumonia and ARDS. I have been recovering for the last 6 weeks and I am just now getting to the point I can sketch (roughly) and start making things.

That said this spring as summer is filled with exciting projects!

More to come.
