Nobody can complain about the weather this year thats for sure;I thought it was the perfect mix of warm hot & sticky just like I like it although there’s were record breaking rain showers. I was productive in a sense that I took full advantage of the best days to get some new projects underway that will have an interesting outcome once they are completed. I will go into small detail but that’s about it for now; all I can say is that I have improved my sculpting skills and have learned to allow time to actually slow down the process for better results.
My travels were very minimal but I did manage to go to the Jersey shore once which is always therapeutic for me,I just wish I could stay longer than just a couple of hours when I get there. I have been spending quite a bit of time in Philadelphia and the last visit produced a very unique encounter with none other than Justin Timberlake as he was leaving the Four Seasons hotel the day after his concert with Jay Z at the Citizens Bank Park stadium. I also discovered a new restaurant/lounge “Vango” that I enjoyed very much due to the fact that they have real good Dj’s who play House music and although I did not order any food while I was there I heard that they got some tasty dishes on their menu so next time I visit I’ll be sure to try and sample something.
This year I was asked to teach a Master Class at Trenton’s ‘Art All Night’ which I was pleased with however I wish I had time to submit some artwork so everyone could see what I have been up to in the studio. I was involved in an exhibition at the Shakespere Theatre in Philadelphia titled “Envisioning Othello” of which I won best in show (Blue Ribbon) with one of my self-portraits that I created before leaving my studio located in Trenton five years ago.
I think the highlight of the summer was towards the end when I released one of my poems and have now turned it into a song with the help of my cousin who wrote the music that inspired the collaboration. It will be featured on an LP just as soon as it is completed sometime before the end of the year. I also was interviewed for a book about the defunct night club City Gardens titled “No Slam Dancing,No Stage Diving,No Spikes” which will include some of my photographs and artwork that I installed inside the dancehall during its most fruitful period.
To end this post I’ld like to mention that my online Birthday party was fantastic and I got best wishes from England,Paris,Amsterdam and Rome,Italy which is pretty amazing!!
