Art Release Party

May 16th, 2011

A while back, I commissioned Angelo to finish his other bar scene. Once it was finished, we turned our Rock Band night into an art release party and added Joe Finn's birthday to the shenanigans.

Adam's Art Show

April 9th, 2010

Adam is attending the St. Paul College of Visual Arts and they had a student showing in their gallery of the semester's work. My parents and I stopped in to have a peek.

But You Didn't

May 22nd, 2009

Throughout last weekend's Art-A-Whirl, Kelly and I used the following equation to refer to "crayon scribbles" as BYD's. :)

Kelly and I wandered a bit of the NE Art-A-Whirl. We made sure to stop in at Angelo's new Silk Road Studio where I added "The Green Fairy" to my Brewer collection.

This is where my brain is today...

No clocks, sound of the ocean, smell of sea salt, sipping a nice fruity drink with an umbrella in the glass. Jeez -- is it 5:30 yet?

More Badger Art

January 26th, 2009

I went to visit Adam again on Sunday and we played Mexican Train. (he won)

But Adam also had a chance to bring down some of his new pieces to show off. He intends to do a whole series of Obama/Old Testament scenes. Look forward to seeing the whole set when it's complete!

The Commission is Complete!

December 10th, 2007

As I wrote earlier, I've been eagerly awaiting the completion of Angelo's latest work. He stopped by to deliver it last week. The result is fantastic and it now proudly hangs on my wall. :)

See the rest of my collection here.

The Brewer Collection

August 22nd, 2007

I've touted my friend's talent before, but I'll restate my claim. Angelo has some mad skillz and his brand of art-style is right up my alley. He uses clever use of negative space and exquisite extremes of detail to portray scenes from the futuristic story in his head. He somehow manages to capture a form's essence in a minimal set of lines. The poses and settings giving a mood set off with the colors chosen.

My first print was "The Drunk Artist Contemplates His Life". A self-portrait of sorts of the artist himself. Although all the art at the first showing I attended was great, this piece spoke to me and I related with it. It came home with me. read more »

Visiting the Badger

June 13th, 2007

Mom and I drove down to see the Badger this last weekend. It had been a long time -- the last time I was there was before all of the Rabbit games in the hospital.

He's good. Surviving and making the most of it. He has started running and does a few miles every day. Although he says he hates the running part, he's happy with the results of feeling better and healthier. I'll join in the exercise kick by doing my part and drinking more beer in order to better hold down the couch at home.

Adam had sent home a couple more pictures he drew. The three of us battling Kevin's cancer is brilliant. Check out the name tags. :)
