Old Jan 17th, 2007, 03:51 PM        My Big News!!!!
Hey guys. Big news for me. I got my own gallery show for my art out here. It's going to be in June. This is very exciting for me. It wouldn't have happened if not for poppers620 because I have always been too whimpy to show people my work and try getting a show myself. Poppers620 is volunteering at a gallery and showed the owner my site. He liked my work so I assembled some balls for myself and went in to talk to him. And that's the story.
Anyway, Rog or I will be posting more about it (time/date/location) when it gets closer for anyone who lives out here that might wanna go.
I will be there all night to slap people on their backs and call them "chum". So don't miss out.
Also I have a myspace now. I will try to use this to make announcements about art things now and then. www.myspace.com/strangepuppets
And can one of you crazy myspace nerds possibly tell me how to get rid of the frookin white border near where people make comments, and were it says "contacting" "interests" and "details"
stupid sunofabitch myspace.

Ok guys that's it!

Huge, huge, HUGE congratulations!

My childhood best friend lives out your way and is an aspiring art guy, and I shall send him and his wife your way when the time comes. I only wish I could go myself.

Holy shit, congrats. I want to say more, but I don't have all that much to say.

Other than "post lots and lots of pictures, because art shows are awesome," of course.

Very cool, congrats.

I took a look at the site www.strangepuppets.com - love it.

Until recently I was the director of a gallery in Toronto, now I am a artist agent and the people I represent rather unique doll makers, prop makers and even taxidermists.

I'll add you to my MySpace top 8 - a lot of eclectic artists frequent my site. You should really take advantage of the networking available on MySpace. I use it a lot in successfully promoting the artists I represent.

Oh, and putting <Z> into those sections make them disappear.

My mom use to be in a gallery but she quit because she said she didn't like the other old bags in the gallery true story

Do you ever/plan to go to any art festivals? My mom did one in San Diego I believe but usually just around OK :/

Thanks Max. And yes please do since I worry only 3 people will show up. Someday you and I will have a joint show.

Thank you very much. I will spit on everyone who walks through the door then wait until the right time to throw a tantrum and run out yelling "nobody GETS me"

Thanks very much! This the gallery I will be having the show at: hyaenagallery.com. Seriously thanks for the myspace add. I know that somehow myspace is really helpful for people trying to do promotions which is why I am trying to set up on there. I hate myspace a lot though, so I have been doing it grudgingly. And I'm still having trouble quite understanding how to use it. I finally fixed some crap on my page tonight though.

Btw you have an interesting site. Ever been to the Mutter Museum in Phladelphia? If not I highly recommend a visit.

I've thought about doing things like local fairs/meets where they sell stuff like punk crafts. I know there are some cool poster art festivals and stuff like that. Maybe sometime..

All of the positive sentiments that all the other people have expressed are things that I also feel and would like to extend to you.

I'm going to buy more of your stuff while it's still cheap.
