Explanatory Note to the Artist

This is a collaborative piece I worked on with Tiffany Sevilla, a composer based in Chicago. I did the animation to go with her music.
It will be performed Saturday at Columbia College, Chicago.

The piece is based on a freelance job I had some years back, in which I was sent a document titled "Explanatory Note to the Artist." She was impressed with the document's art direction and put it to music.

Eric Joyner at McCaig Welles Gallery, Brooklyn

I wanted to alert those of you in NY that artist Eric Joyner will be showing his continuing saga of the robot donut wars at McCaig Welles Gallery, Brooklyn. While Obama may be the new President of this country, Joyner has been the president of the galactic donut council for nearly a decade now. His work will make you chuckle and cry. There is a real touching quality about his robots. Check it out!
