Juxtapoz turns 18

AND I was kindly offered the opportunity to send some work over for the show, which will open tomorrow at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica.

“Copro Gallery presents a group art exhibition celebrating JUXTAPOZ magazine‘s 18 year anniversary. This show will feature artists from Juxtapoz’s past , present and future. Since its inception in the early 90’s Juxtapoz has been a major factor in setting art trends and helping to make them a world wide phenomenon with its vast publishing empire and international circulation”

I wish I could go, but can’t- what with being tucked up in the north east of England, but if you can and want to, the opening reception is from 8:00 – 11:30 pm and all are welcome.

I’ve sent the four newest members of The Tribe:

Theodora, the tribeJane, the Tribe

give me some fucking carbs, man

I’m trying to crank out a few more drawings these days. You know, for the sake of progress. Really though, they only happen when I’m waiting for some paint to dry or stuck between audiobooks, listlessly moving the shit around on my desk. Jesus, that makes me as cranky as a guy in the 90’s who couldn’t get a clear picture on the telly during a sporting event.

Anyway. This is my favourite scrawl to date, right here. Think it trumps most of my canvases.

Also, I’ve got a new print on the way. It’s early days right now, but it’s definitely a-go-go. To illustrate the current status: Black Rat Projects go “Hey, Candice, let’s do another print” and I go “Yeah, how about this?” and they go “Yeah, that would work” but really we sound more excited than that and then I go “alright cool, soon as it dries, it’s on the way” and then I get nervous excited.
