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

The Enabling

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.
