Hey blog, exciting news. On Monday, January 17th, 6:30pm I'll be giving a lecture at the Apple Store in SoHo, NYC in conjunction with The Art Directors Club and their Young Guns lecture series. Their theater seats about 100 people and is specially designed for workshops and presentations, along with occasional musical performance. I will discuss my work, my thought process, and current projects. Also, there will be a Q&A afterward. I look forward to seeing you there.

Hello Blog. I hope your Thanksgiving was nice. Mine was a nice reprieve from my usual schedule of insanity. Also, I had time to explore my recent obsession which is the phenomenon of Baptist churches which occupy former storefronts.

My main goal is to explore the places we find comfort in, in relation to financial, geographic, and racial demographics. In the same way that you see an abundance of coffee spots in higher income neighborhoods, lower income neighborhoods have their own tentpoles (Think coffee spots aren't tentpoles? See what happens when you close one down.)

I plan to obsess more.
