What's up New York..

I am one of 1861 Brooklyn-based artists participating in this very cool project, brought to you by the Brooklyn Museum:

GO: A Community-Curated Open Studio Project

During GO, Brooklyn-based artists are asked to open their studios to the community on September 8–9, 2012. Community members registered as voters will visit studios and nominate artists for inclusion in a group exhibition to open at the Brooklyn Museum on Target First Saturday, December 1, 2012.

please take a minute and register to vote, then visit my studio September 8th or 9th and vote for me!

Walt Whitman: BLUE & GRAY

my Walt Whitman design for Griot Apparel. Also available in blue and gray.



WALT WHITMAN (on green): walter whitman (1819 - 1892) was an american humanist and writer. he received schooling to the age of 11 and then went to work to support his family. whitman began as a legal clerk and continued his learning through apprenticeships, including as a printer’s devil. throughout his life, he was politically active and composed poems and essays in his free time. at various points he worked as a government clerk, a school teacher, and in journalism. whitman lost his position as editor of the brooklyn eagle because of a political dispute with the newspaper’s owner. he said it wasn’t until after years of chasing customary awards that he decided to become a poet.
