In November, this piece was shown in the AGGRO art exhibit, which premiered artists from Phoenix, AZ - such as Sterling here - in Los Angeles. This was a show that was all about putting your balls to the wall(s), which isn't that hard considering the art on said walls.
When I first saw this piece - a compilation between heir Bartlett and Glen Allen - I thought, "wow, they are totally doing it, underwater, in and around sea life." Not too insightful, but honest nonetheless.
I am proud to own several of Sterlings works, and recommend that you join me in destroying all else.
To contact Sterling for his artwork, you can find him on myspace.com or lurking at the T.F. in highland park.
Here's to Sterling and I getting new/my specs.... soon.

This photo was taken while I was B-CAM operator for a short film called Essential Life. I thought it was pretty interesting to shoot a photo of myself reflected in a hearse. But let's hope not eh?
Nicholas Gurewitch is one of the most inventive and hilarious comic artists of our time. He uses stylized drawings to poke fun at what we expect to be happening. There is always something else in the subtext, which is what I love about his work. There are some where he consistently uses ordinary objects as the heads of the characters in the comics to personify people:
Gurewitch makes references to video games and old TV shows as well to make the reader laugh by altering the original intent of the cartoon or game:
"Secret Mutant Hero Team"
I could go on and on. For more by The Perry Bible Fellowship, go check the website at www.pbfcomics.com.

Austin told me about this film and it has kind of haunted me ever since. I love the ideas and the methods used in this film. Experimentation with time, space, memory, insanity, images, and age are deconstructed in this thrilling film fabricated by the use of photographs instead of moving images. Voice over tells the story as if it is all just a book with photos. I am loving this method more and more each time I watch it. Here are some screenshots.
