A Return to Chicago and the Sunday Night Sex Show

Because, for whatever reason, I thought it’d be a great idea to read again at the Sunday Night Sex Show in Chicago, August 28th. It’ll be my third reading at the series, and experience has proven that everything will turn out fine. Grab the mic, wrap the cable in loops from wrist to elbow. Remember that no one actually comes prepared to these readings. Hell, last time I read, the guy before me had a story written on a napkin.

Anyway, I’ll be reading this Sunday night, August 28th. Joining me for his first appearance at the SNSS will be my wing-man and occasional, reluctant caretaker, Paul Grens… which should make the night a chaotic spectacle. I’m looking forward to seeing you!

New Art on Display @ Easy, Breezy, Beautiful

 Earlier this year, I participated in Monster Drawing Rally, a fundraising event to support exhibitions and residency programs at SPACES gallery. It was while drawing my piece that I met Randy Crider, a local comic book artist. He thought kindly enough of me to include me in his latest show, “Easy Breezy Beautiful”, his take on classic pin-ups from WWII-era bomber art to modern comics. I’ll have two pieces in the show, the first of which has never been printed before, while the second will be completely new. Several other talented artists are participating in the event, none of whom I know, so I’m looking forward to another jittery, chaotic run through the gauntlet of social discourse.

“Easy Breezy Beautiful” can be seen at Studio Le Beau in Tremont as a part of the Tremont Artwalk. The opening night reception begins at 7:00 on Friday, August 12.
