It's only a sentence fragment, but it's my sentence fragment, and I love it.

My monkeys were called "finely drawn" in the NYT listing of "I Woke Up In A Strange Place" at Moti Hasson Gallery. Pretty cool!

'I WOKE UP IN A STRANGE PLACE ...' The Postmodern mindscape gets a good workout in a show that includes Samantha Simpson's finely drawn allegorical monkeys; Simon Keenleyside's small paintings of gloomily magical birch forests; a puddle of vomit made of pearlescent pink sequins by Craig Fisher; Edward del Rosario's precise paintings of tiny, oddly dressed people; and a Neo- Pop installation representing an old world hunting-lodge interior by Ryan Humphrey. Moti Hasson, 330 West 38th Street, (212) 268-4444, through Jan. 21. (Johnson)

I'm hard at work on section one of the 48 foot work on paper I'm making for the airport. I'm making it in four twelve-foot sections, and normally this would be a totally natural scale for me, but the whole thing is only four feet tall! It's a challenge to work that small, actually- I usually airbrush large and draw small, and this is airbrushing medium sized, and it feels strange. I'm loving the fact that I have such along length of paper on which to make a narrative. I've got a very complicated story going involving lemmings, monkeys and badgers with vacuum cleaners. We'll see how it all ends.

okay, that's awesome! the finely-drawn monkeys are the best kind.
