Stephen Gammell Art

February 1, 2012

Holy crap, I think I just finally discovered that artwork that really freaked me out back in grade school. By Stephen Gammell:

Recently, I’ve been content to just think that artwork was from Michael Whelan, on account of this piece:

Which was, of course, the cover art for a classic Obituary album:

Moving Next Door

January 9, 2011

It’s a long story, but this month I’ll be moving to the next door apartment. This is weird and also convenient. So now I’ve got six months of rental time to find a permanent condo or something, hopefully.

Things noticed so far during the move

  • Too many goddamned paintings

  • The paint-catcher canvas what saved me from many rental fees and fines
