looking back….

Looking back over the last year I have been painting a lot and I wanted to recap a little. My wife and daughter have inspired me more than anything, and I couldn’t be happier. Seriously….every cliche is true and I am it. haha. mothers animation

Tons of Things Happening….

Anyone who knows me IRL knows that it has been a crazy year since I last updated this website. In October of last year we were so lucky to welcome our beautiful baby girl into our lives

This beautiful wonder has profoundly changed my life and seriously impacted my art(as you will see). Also the fact that, aside from my previous injury, my hands have been in very bad shape for the past year, making me focus a great deal more on visual art. The condition of my hands forced me to scrap the plans I had to record and release an Acoustic songs that I had written over the last 5 or 10 years. Mostly I wanted to vent all of my depression before the baby came. Well, since that didn’t happen, I’ll be rehearsing and I should have it ready before the end of summer. (Working Title)

Due to an accident I have been forced to take a small break from music. It HAS allowed me to start a few new pieces of art though. Here’s a few examples of the progress I have been making, and also my newest piece that has been selected to be included in the upcoming Against the Grain show hosted and curated by the folks over at the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market and Artworks. Thanks again to everyone who has been so patient and supportive during this recovery time haha

Here is the piece that will represent me at the ATG show coming up on 8-6-16 @ Artworks in Trenton NJ

If you have been following along (or if you scroll down, I suppose) , you can see that this is the end result of the repurposing/repainting of that gigantic canvas I found by the dumpster in our development. I’m super proud of it. I had an amazing time doing it too. Thanks guys, wish me luck getting into the show.

Work in progress for show submission

My wife ( http://www.melodysaccone.com ) let me know about a juried art show coming up that is accepting submissions. The theme of the show would be Upcycling. Recycling garbage or other waste(garbage sounds terrible haha) into works of art, so I was gonna finish painting my door, or maybe turn in one of the crazy sci-fi guns that I’ve made, but then I saw this huge, ugly painting near a dumpster in our development. It was perfect.
