Adding to the games of May, our friend Michelle Segre has a show opening at Murray Guy on 5/11. Unfortunately, I don't have the browser to view the site, but here's a drawing. I think this show will be full-blown sculpture. In the past she's created oversize renderings of things you might find in a dark corner: mushrooms; moldy bread; chicken bones, with a sort of natural history museum flavor. Not sure what's up this time, but it ought to be interesting.

Thousands more cute pictures like this one await you at the VCL Anthropomorphic Image Library. The image I selected is Mulonica, a dragon created by Krystal Ishida (aka Mystica), which reminds me of Rousseau's Sleeping Gypsy. I have to say, as an artist, Krystal has got it goin' on. (Check out her page at VCL here.) She works in Paintshop Pro, and I love the "watercolor" textures she uses, in combination with her pixelated line. Her drawings of Pokemon and other anime-type characters have real punch and verve, and she sneaks in a lot of autobiography under the guise of these cuddly critters (VCL guidelines dictate that drawings be "furry/anthropomorphic"). If she wants a character to look angry, it looks angry. Ditto sad, lonely, sprightly... In other words, she's a "natural," and it's quite unfair to read her post that "my dad said that if my art was for sale, no one would buy it off me any way." Dad, you are so wrong!

Some familiar suspects at Galapagos tonight:

DR. MOM is the new joint venture between actress/writer/performer Ann Magnuson, drummer Roger Murdock, guitarist Dave Rick and bassist Stuart Popejoy. Ann and Dave were in Bongwater together, Dave and Rog were in King Missile together. Word is that Stuart was discovered in Albuquerque, NM in a dumpster with his passport and a bass guitar....hmmph, anyway, DR. MOM plan on performing a bunch of recalibrated Bongwater tunes, amusing covers and perhaps a few embryonic pieces foretelling possible continued collaboration. Good luck!
