I will be in Jackson Hole, WY this weekend for the opening of the my show at Oswald Gallery. If you’re in the area, I invite you to attend the reception Friday evening (August 2) from 6-9 pm. Two new images will make their official debut. The show runs from August 1 – September 1, 2008.

Many of you have heard me blather on-and-on about the work I did for O Magazine (“O’s Memoir Feast”). You also know that I’ve been very secretive about it and refused to share previews with any of you. Don’t take it personally. I wouldn’t even show my mother! My wife saw a few of them, but only because we live in the same house. 

Now that the issue has finally hit the stands I am now at liberty to share the fruits of my labor with you, but I won’t. I worked day-and-night for nearly a month and a half; I spent 3 of those days cutting out a pine tree; sliced and folded multiple paper chairs, tables and beds until my fingers hurt; went through a 40 count box of X-ACTO blades (and then some) and shot over 700 digital samples.

Posting the results here is, well, just too easy!

Therefore, I suggest you look at it while standing in line at the grocery store (if you put it back I will never know), try to find the pictures online (I know of one blog that posted a few detail views) or steal it from your doctor’s/dentist’s/parole officer’s office! 

To show you that I’m not a total hard ass, I’ll give you the page number to start on: 166.

If you are stubborn, broke or forget, don’t worry. I’ll post all of the images (including the ones that were rejected) next month, once the issue is gone. 

Don’t delay.

Fleshed Out

My brother, Tim,  called me this morning.


“Hey, what are you doing?”


“Did you know that you’re in a porn magazine?”


“(Laughing) Your book is in my buddy’s copy of LEG WORLD.”

“No way!”

“He told me not to tear it out, but I’m going to. I’ll fax it to you.”

“I can’t wait to see it.”

“Now I KNOW you’re famous!!!”
