one million studio sneak-peaks for Joe Penrod

and everyone else, but Joe asked:

It was a very messy two weeks - I should have photographed the really disgusting mounds of goo all over eveything on the tables. Epoxy Resin and liquid rubber and Bondo everywhere. My new studio nickname is Stinky. It's Saturday night as I write this, having spent the whole day cleaning. Mostly because of this behemoth:

6 ft. 250 lbs. ...I guess I made a linebacker out of Bunnies.

The first opening was last night and me without a camera. There will be another next Friday so, in awhile, you should see images. Also showing next Friday: Joe Penrod in Olympia Washington! Everyone within 100 miles is required to attend (there will be an afterparty by Michelle with Granteeny entertaining and you can even sleep over...I almost bought a flight: boo to simultaneous shows) and Californians are highly encouraged to make the journey.

p.s. Casey Jex Smith is showing with me AGAIN. Look forward to those pictures. This is a great trend.

one million chicagoan art likers

Hey, I found more photos of people in Chicago!

Josh Fritz

...that girl isn't wearing any pants!

Me and MoJo

Josh, Mo and Salime carrying Jimmy Jr.

Better shots of that one dangerous bild.
This one with Mo.

Everyone loves the scarf Josh's mom made (Michelle Everett, Kim Egbert, Momoko Fritz)

Josh and Mo become friends with Darin and Liz.


Fletcher a.k.a. Daniel Everett was there and obviously VERY interested in art.

Jimmy and I got classed-up after our days of dirty work (double tie in full effect - compensating for Jimmy's no tie)

Todd at the neighboring West Loop show of Rodney Graham (guy in background left)

Jimmy and the most dangerous piece I've made so far (it fell on Jimmy in its first incarnation - he dodged)

As you can see my photo taking has gotten La-a-ai-zy. I will try to be unlazier for the show coming this Friday....
