poker night


I got to play poker last weekend with my buds but not for to long. So I found time to get in a drawing too. Just to note Ace high is not worth betting your shirt on.

Extreme Makeover




A story in three parts:

1-- extreme makeover begins (this stage is also known as "Crikey, my face hurts!")
2--her dreams come true: she is celebrated far and wide for her beauty and fake breasts
3--true love ensues, and they live happily ever after

Road to Winterpeg

The Name that can be named...

...is not the nameless way.


But wither goest thou, ALfA,
in thy shiny cars in the night? and

what dreams I have of thee,
as if Whitman or
somebody were speaking from some

dreary late-night hang
over

and hanging over the precipice of
time and
everything coalesced into

one.

the

myriad creatures see this

and know that it

is be.

Mural @ the Grafitti Gallery

Kornerz in progress...


Do I colour the samall corners? or is it too much?
This is a large piece.

Shameless Plug


OK, this is just an announcement of an upcoming show... my apologies for the use of this space for my own personal self-interest, but I won't be selling anything if that makes anyone feel any better!

On Thursday, November 30th, I will be performing a solo set backed up by the inestimable Mr. Alf Catolico on drums, as part of Janine Gobeil's cd release at the Academy Coffee House.

Songs are from my upcoming album, which is under the working title of 'Mute'. Those of you who know me and Alf from the band 'Volume' will get that joke...

TRANZMISSION

&%%%%%%%%%%%%godkingsrule566666666666666666666666

godkings rule rising up from the pool of the black star. unable to achieve visual connection due to enormous feild of voodoo. Shields intact.the mission proceeds. Im freaking out! Rearanging the heavenly bodies all lubed up with oil I will toil like a honeyb ee at your tulip you little hotti. My number is 56 because I like to break bricks with fists for kicks. I recorded 4 new tracks in a period of 56 hours and I am unable to access the memory banks of that period. Now I am unable to remove my headphones due to the savagery of the beats and un-legal supersonic painfully face peeling rum rhymes. trying to show everyone tigers

Dr Spock is ready for the heavenly jelly. Passed through the death inititationb. Discoverying the guru of no guru. Now I know that power means the same thing as medicine. The medicine is listening and listening is the medicine.
trying to find the key that unlocks the riddle. Creating crazy shizzle with my funky fiddle.

a catalyst for radical change. administer the antidote.

WELCOME to thE SHOW

Arthur Desmarteaux



This guy was just in Winnipeg doing a residency at Martha Street Studio. It was an exchange arranged through La Maison des Artistes. He was a pretty funny guy.

Knick Knackerson?


When you do a google search on knick knackerson, this is the image that comes up. Man, he's ugly. (:

Anthology?


This is the #1 match when you search Google for "Don Maximo" under images!

On another note: Has anybody ever thought of meticulously searching the ALFA archives for poetry, etc and compiling an anthology? I was perusing the dense back-logs today in search of my own writings for a university anthology and it occurred to me that this could be a cool thing for ALFAites to do. You could even print and publish it. Ha! Now that I think of it, a hardcopy ALFAZINE would be awesome to work in conjunction with the gallery. Hoo, I'm getting ahead of myself I think - I don't even live in Winnipeg anymore. Any thoughts on this though?

Sneak Peak



He is a little sneak peak for all you ALfA bloggers out there.
It will be part of the work I will be showing in January 2007.
I will keep you posted.

$934,000 for Thompson painting



(This is not the painting that sold)

A Tom Thomson oil sketch of Ontario's northern wilderness sold for $934,000 at auction in Toronto on Monday, well above the last record price for a Thomson painting.

Art dealer David Loch of Winnipeg won a brisk bidding war for the painting, Burnt Area with Ragged Rocks, at the Sotheby's and Ritchies auction of Canadian art.

Quitmoanez owes me $10



Look at all that yellow.
I even got some red in there.
I'd say you need to pay up.

Here is a picture of me rubbing my hands together really fast, trying to make them turn red hot. So far, this is as close as I can get.

Toronto International Art Fair



As part of my "work" at the Art Fair, I went around photographing all the western Cdn booths for galleries west magazine-- they wanted shots of galleries from the west, or who exhibit western Cdn artists.

The three guys are the nice chaps from othergallery-- paul, paul, and aleem. The super-hot pair is dan and alysha from monte clark gallery, which is in vancouver and toronto--don't let their too-cool for school look fool you, they were actually two of the friendlier people i met at the fair. I said they should be models.

In the other photo, Paul Butler of othergallery gets ready to address the crowd as part of a panel discussion w/ Jessica Bradley of TO, Yves Trepanier (of Cgy's TrepanierBaer), and Robert Enright.
