more rocks

wednesday was supposed to swelter
as tuesday had. instead
the fog's chill
persisted into the afternoon
and the model didn't show up
by the time i gave up waiting.

didn't feel too bad as i'd been
highly productive among my rocks...

punk: chaos to couture

the current costume show at the metropolitan museum is
punk: chaos to couture. i wasn’t all that interested in going
but hadn't been all that interested in the alexander mcqueen show
two years (!!) ago and found it thrilling.

the punk show features, among other amusements, a recreation of the bathroom of punk club cbgb.

the rooms are dark, illuminated mainly by videos, throbbing with the sounds of 70s punk icons like patti smith, the ramones, blondie, the sex pistols.

there are all the requisite punk tropes: the torn, the sharp, the pasted together. garbage bags, staples, newsprint, and, inevitably, safety pins.

abraham lincoln is alleged to have said "for people who like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing they like." works for me.

this is the one image i made at the show that i love.

sun again

first saturday session
and i'm happy to get back to
my rocks and pleased as punch
that they survived Sandy and
that they still inspire me.

the sun came out

and sketching commenced.
(my life drawing sketches are not up to snuff yet)
