"making the world smaller" since 1994-ish

Hi Folks,

Sorry! I'm so late writing this!

I had my birthday, we had my father's birthday, and then on the 12th I gave my aunt a birthday call (and thought of my grandfather on his birthday too, though he is dead).

Then there was Lisa King's death which happened on the 12th also...

And the weird/strange/sad/I-don't-know, is that Robert Fisher, the creator of Willard Grant Conspiracy, and a long friendship (with its ups and downs, but ended with an up) died on the 12th. Seriously. WTF. So much to write and say but I've just been going through my computers to find emails, videos, electronic photos, boxes of paper photos etc.

But, I should be telling you about the Dr. Sketchy's Boston with GiGi Marx modeling, February 27th at ONCE. here is the event.

OK, back to Robert stuff...

Through in the YouTube there are four videos of Willard Grant Conspiracy but there is one hysterical one! Here it is. WGC is starting the song "The Ghost of the Girl in the Well" and Billy Ruane is getting in the way.. RIP both of them.

I put three photo albums on facebooks, early early early, maybe you'll recognize who some of the people are, and identify them.

October 31, 1997

Need some help with this one...

My (good-bye) house July 10, 1998

here's a photo of Robert at a show for my birthday at TT the Bears in 2005.

That's all of it...for a while...

TWO Dr. Sketchy's: Anti-Art School A MONTH !!!

2nd Sunday : 2:30-5:30 : Great Scott 1222 Commonwealth Ave. Allston, Massachusetts 02134. Right at the intersection of Harvard Ave and Commonwealth Ave. And the T. 18+; $8 to draw, $10 to hang. All skill levels welcome! (bring paper and pens/marchers/etc)

4th Monday : 7:00-9:00 : ONCE Somerville 156 Highland Ave, Somerville, Massachusetts 02143 $8 to draw, $10 to hang. All skill levels welcome! (bring paper and pens/marchers/etc)

Dr. Sketchy's: Anti-Art School is the life drawing session you dreamed of in your deviously creative art school head. Hot models with crazy costumes, sometimes genderbending antics, poses that keep your interest for hours, nice folks around you, drinks, and it's cheap. The models talk and keep you entertained, there's good music, you could win prizes for good and bad art! You don't have to be a good artist, or someone who draws everyday. Dr. Sketchy's is a great place to start back up with your practice, or to try to pick up a new creative outlet.

We start with short poses to get you warmed up and then move on to longer and longer poses, but that's about where the traditional life drawing session stops...
