It’s been a whlile since I’ve posted.

I’m pleased to report that I finished my first commission ahead of schedule and the piece is hanging up in my room, waiting for me to figure out where to sign it.

In other news, I’ve applied to IPCNY new print show for November, and also will be in the show at teh Los Angeles Center for Digital Art. I would like to show more work there, and eventually move down there.

The image that will be in “Snap to Grid” it’s called “MSAS 2002”.

I’m teaching two days a week at the Marin School of Art and Technology, http://www.envisionschools.org/msat/ and the title of my class is “Tesseract”. I’m really excited that I get to use the curriculum that I developed over the years using the hypercube as a syllabus and the idea of Analogs…in terms of both definitions.
