Public + Corporate Projects
...and other fun/uncategorizable stuff!
This page is very much a work-in-progress: there's a LOT to be added still! Meanwhile, feel free to look around but please excuse the mess. At least there's no danger of wet paint.
This page features a selection of recent work that could be classified as a public or corporate project in some way, or work that doesn't really fit into any category. For more images of other kinds of projects- such as my Murals and Scenic Work- visit my portfolio (below). You can also check out my CV and Resume for more infomation about my work and experience.
What have I been working on this year? YOU'RE LOOKING AT IT! I've pretty much spent all my time this year building this website from scratch! (For the first- and hopefully last- time!) My original website, built in 2006 by my dad, was ready to be retired.

ON THE SUPERFICIALITY OF ART How can poetry be anything besides deceit? How else can poets adapt to emptiness? When the masters discovered how meaningless the world is, naturally they were disappointed. So they responded with irony, satire, putting on airs, all kinds of tyranny. Some even went mad. Nowadays we usually just binge on topics urgent as our selves, our longings for justice and a stable home. Meanwhile the world keeps behaving according to its god: change? meaningless, inevitable, merciless change? obedient to that god's twin commandments endless death, never-ending generation. Watching their children grow, every father every mother already knows this . . . this renewing emptiness. Beyond joy. Beyond sadness.
