I can’t believe I am actually typing these words, but in less than 6 weeks time – I am going to Burning Man! WOW!!! It has been on my bucket list for years! Right up there with volunteering at the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica & Orangutan Sanctuary in Bali! But it always seemed like an impossible dream… How on earth would I go? How does it work? Even if I were to convince friends to all get an RV and show up – then what? But the stars all lined up and made everything fall into place! I am going with my best friend and we are going to work doing interior design on Art Cars for Dang Gang! This is one of their vehicles – The Dang Imperial! Not sure if this is the one I’ll be kitting out, or what. But OMG! I honestly can not believe this!! It’s a total dream come true! A whole week living in a surreal fantasy world! Doing art & seeing art & living art & breathing art! There is going to be a massive Pinball Machine! And massive Kaleidoscope! All kinds of crazy sculptures & lights… Mad people in mad outfits in a total space landscape! I’m sure it is going to be an endurance test. And to be totally honest – I have NEVER even camped before! But I like challenges, and always dive into difficult things head on. It’s the only way you learn! And I don’t mind getting dirty… Plus I’m confident that as long as I have my basic needs – the rest will fall into place… So I better get to work! Have a lot to do from now until then! OMG! I am actually going to go see The Everything Is Terrible – Jerry Maguire VHS Cassette Pyramid!!! I can not handle the excitement! Thank you Universe!! oxo gd

Back before The Last Summer Show opened at 111 Minna Gallery, I gave a video interview about my influences etc… Anyone who knows me, knows I have a real phobia about video interviews! I dunno why, but I do… I just freeze up for some reason in my head and worry I will project the wrong image or whatever… It’s one of my quirks, perhaps a control issue? Ha! But I think it went quite well! Actually the one part of my interview I was hoping they would cut out, is what they left in and is kinda hilaire! No point in taking ones self too seriously, eh? So check it out! Plus you can see Caroline Weaver & Jamie Bizness plus Mildred & Pacolli’s awesome works too! Ok check it out & Remember the show is up until July 30th!!Big Thanx to Abyssurdian Productions for the awesome vid! More soon oxo GD
Had a splendid time in my former stomping grounds of Brooklyn & NYC! One of the highlights was meeting one of my fave artists EVER – Don Pablo Pedro!! How amazing is he? I even managed to score a small scroll painting by him called – Never Got Your Name!! Maybe I’m crazy but I think it looks like me! I have certainly felt like this more than once ha ha!! He & his girlfriend were very gracious and kind to take time out to show us around! Look out for him! He is going places! I even caught a showing of Jon Moritsugu’s fab film Terminal USA on the big screen at the Anothology Archives! 22 years ago I was part of the film crew and made the costumes for the lead actress – Amy Davis! That was quite special to see! I also acquired an amazing, powerful piece of jewelry!! This fab Tibetan Neck Bib! It was truly made for me and kinda reminds me of the neck pieces I drew for my Mother Ship Connection Prints! Kismet!!! But the BEST BEST BEST bit was reconnecting with old friends! Was such a treat to see so many old faces! All though I didn’t get to see everyone, but I will be back NYC! I love all you guys! MWAH! Click pix for more shenanigans! More soon! oxo gd

And of course my fave city in all America – lovely San Francisco! And to top it all off – Im showing my work at the best gallery in town – 111 Minna! And it looks sooooo AMAZING! It’s lit in UV!
