So here's the new painting, fresh from the thrift store. For those of you who aren't familiar with this series, I've been making them for almost 3 years now. Basically, I buy a cheap art print at a thrift store or flea market and take it home to add my own layer. I've taken to calling them "Duchamped" after Marcel Duchamp's readymades, specifically his drawing of a goatee on the Mona Lisa.
Anywho, you can see more of my so called Duchamped paintings here. And if anyone has any information about the original painting I'd love to hear it. Looks Hudson River School to me, but I'm not entirely sure.
Below, you'll find some detail shots as well as a picture that hopefully explains just why I have such a hard time getting things done.

If you head over to Austin Kleon's new Newspaper Blackout site, you can seem my contribution. I actually did the poem several years ago after first running across Austin online. The blackout poem process is incredibly fun, and I'd certainly recommend giving it a try.

Just wanted to drop by and tell you this new Gil Scott-Heron album is blowing my mind. I really only know the man from "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," which is fantastic, but this new album might be my favorite since Neon Bible by Arcade Fire. Check it out, seriously. Great mix of spoken word with hip-hop samples as well as some delta blues sounding numbers. I particularly recommend "The Crutch," "Your Soul and Mine," and "Where Did the Night Go."
