Ten Years On

On the 31st of May 2007 I started a blog
which started out as a way to share images.
Soon, this grew into three separate blogs which 
I later streamlined into one called ArtSkoolDamage.

I still get a lot of enjoyment out of sharing
images of my day to day life, movements, 
work in progress, finished artwork, pictures
of events I attend and things that fascinate me.

Blogging has served as a visual journal
and it has also connected me to others
 who share some of my cultural interests.

Thanks to EVERYONE who has been a part
of this, either by visiting quietly or reaching out.

The pictures, themes and journey continues...

Happy 60th Birthday Siouxsie!
Thank you for decades of great music
and an unforgettable face to face moment.

A day with Kristen and Steve 
is always effortlessly magical...

Bag 'em and tag 'em.

soon after I took these images from inside a taxi cab.

Town & Country: Speeding Towards Summer

Streets, courtyards and gardens have
a little bit more life in them these days...

Dad, my buddy Steve and I 
helped wish Mom a great Mother's Day.
Oh, and of course Chancey was there too.

43 years into their career, 
Blondie released a fresh-sounding, 
largely upbeat new album called Pollinator.
It's been in heavy rotation in my house and car.

New York continues to be
what New York continues to be.
Back at work, another Senior Art Show
brought out friends, family and many alumni...

The day after, all was calm again...

Longer days means more time outside...

Flora and fauna in the park 
continue to flower and flourish.

Scott blew out 48 birthday candles
and Steve and I helped him celebrate.

A year and a day after meeting last year's 
Pleasant Valley Park goslings, three new peeps
emerged by the pond. Ma and Pa Goose let me get
very close, which leads me to believe that it's the 
same pair that reared their young here last year. 

In other news, things are starting
to wind down around the art studios...

Like everyone else around me, 
I think I'm just ready for summer.
