This is an animated video sketch, created in 2011, to realize The Nervous Peal drawings as they were originally conceived, which was as outdoor athletic sculptures
.
I was very inspired by the fitness gangs that workout on playgrounds around the city. I saw that there was a performative aspect to their training, and wanted to develop more appropriate and challenging training stages and structures for these athletes
.
This was in a time space between Parkour and the explosion and commercialization of CrossFit
.
It would have been quite a stunning project, had I been able to lock into the right team of people to help me push it through. The project and the structures needed some more development, but I thought the idea was quite strong
.
It was exciting to see my flat drawing turned into an animated environment, thanks to the lovely @ethanpomerance ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ

I made myself a Vegan Coconut Curry with Seitan, Kale and Mushrooms for dinner tonight ๐Ÿฅฅ Havenโ€™t made a curry since living in London, so Iโ€™m excited about adding this option to my menu. It came out really good
.
I had a lovely studio visit with @wolfymag earlier this morning. Gonna dig into their most recent issue and settle in for the evening

So I decided to chop up my beard...I havenโ€™t seen my chin in awhile
.
I saw this guy on the train with sideburns and a caesar, and thought he looked really handsome, so it got me thinking
.
I should do a caesar haircut. Kinda tired of the fade and a beard look. Weโ€™ll see if the stache lasts, or if I will widdle down to just chops or sideburns

I desperately needed a long high table to work on and for meetings, so yesterday I recycled a daybed that wasnโ€™t getting any use and made myself one ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ

Us out on a date in the late 90โ€™s in Hollywood. This was my early attempt at looking like a โ€œboyโ€, but Iโ€™m afraid we look like a couple of lesbiansโœ‚๏ธ

Well, Iโ€™m 4 days away from my 45th birthday and almost 1 month of eating strictly ๐ŸŒฟVEGAN๐ŸŒฟ
.
There is so much unwell-ness in the world and so many people struggling. After two very unpleasant and challenging years, myself, Iโ€™m grateful that I have survived and am in good health mentally, physically and spiritually
.
My life is not one of material luxury, I canโ€™t give you any fancy holiday beach pictures, plane rides, no matching boyfriend and dog, no family, but I have my creativity, my honesty and my open heart, which I will continue to share with you ๐ŸŒž
.
If ur having a hard time out there, I know a lot of people are, especially with the holidays approaching, keep pushing and staying strong ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ Eat well, sleep well and try to meditate and exercise. These basic things make the hard times much easier, at least for me they have

So after many requests, Iโ€™ve begun developing some rings. This is my first ring form. We have multiple parts to add to it and re-mold and re-cast and so on...so stay tuned
.
But I kinda just love it as a trapezoid band. Iโ€™m not reinventing the wheel here, but sometimes simple obvious things can be quite charming
.
Iโ€™ll take a whisper over a shout any day, especially when it comes to style
