These are a few of the cardboard tokens I made recently out of tabs from pizza boxes that I used to get from work. I've made a ton of these, and they all have words or small phrases written on the back. I like to leave them around places for strangers to find.
Me and Michael have our first show with our band, Murder, this Friday @ the Farside, a new venue in town which is drug and alcohol free. We are a two piece, with me playing guitar and vocals, and Michael playing drums and bgv's. I didn't do the art for the flyer, btw.

This is an older piece that I am giving to my friend, Erin. I did this one around 2007, with the purpose of placing in in front of a light source.
Tomorrow is my last day of work at a the best job I've ever had. I have worked at so many different places, but this is the only one I am going to actually miss. It wasn't the highest paying job, but it was, by far, the most fun. My co-workers became my friends and my family. Although it is painful to leave, I am still ecstatic about leaving to start a new chapter of my life pending my departure to England in January. All of this being said, I felt like i should make a picture for all of my fellow Mominions. This piece is on a broken pizza board and it is about three feet long.

Some of the many reasons I use a lot of cardboard for art; it is free, biodegradable, recycled, and recyclable. Also, it provides the opportunity to experiment without inhibition, because I throw most of this stuff in the recycling bin afterwards. On account of this, they usually end up a little weird. I did these last night.

A quick project I recently did with some burnt boxes from work. The set, which is called "Humans," consists of three pictures. They are named "Humans I: Bone," "Humans II: Blood/Consciousness, and "Humans III: Flesh," respectively. Each piece is about five feet tall.

I'm usually uninterested in trying to sell pieces and hold gallery showings. It seems somewhat pointless in Tallahassee, where people are typically either uninterested or don't have jobs, much less money to buy a picture. I prefer being a hoarder. However, I love selling pieces to people who see my art, like it, and insist on buying it. It shows that they actually appreciate something that I put a considerable amount of work into, which is flattering. So, I sold this picture, as well as one other. This particular piece is called "peer pressure," and it has given me a little bit of paper to put into my new camera savings account.
