Had a fairly busy, productive week at school, i meant to write a blog a week ago but it seems not to have happened. Last saturday went to the Kim Dorland opening at angel gallery, it was pretty sweet. Pictures of his work online arent as impressive as the actual pieces in person which are alot larger than you think, he does lots of trees and uses glow in the dark paint, so ... often painting trees and even more often using black light paints I was impressed. He is a pretty young artist, who is now doing really well for himself. I was both encouraged, inspired, and totally envious.
Spent most of my time this week working on a portrait of my friend Elyse, I will post the pics when it is finally completed... almost there.

You may ask MIKE: why all the gay art lately? WELL ... why not? Also, I plan to get a booth at this years pride if all goes well, and want a large body of reasonably priced pieces for it.
Hung out with my friend jade tonight, ate yummy nachos, and gave her a sexy little tattoo on the side of her ribs... it was interesting, the ink did not disperse the same there as it does on fleshier places like legs. Good to know, will post a pic once she heals a little.
