people i want to know: Thomas Mars

"i saw Phoenix perform.  my favorite part was seeing Mr. Mars's expression of awe, pride, and amazement at the audience, all who came to see him perform his music.  it's what all artists look for - that loving approval.  it'd make anyone smile."

did this mural for laura - a night of mac n' cheese, 30 Rock, and, well, a mural .... felt good to start this series of work again.  for whatever reason, drifted a little away from making my own art like this so happy to feel reconnected again to it.  here are a few photos i managed to take with my phone.

What Did You Say: Henri Matisse

"I feel very strongly the tie between my earlier and my recent works.  But I do not think exactly the way I thought yesterday.  Or rather my basic thought has not changed but it has evolved, and my means of expression have followed .... My destination is always the same but I work out a different route to get there."
