Malboro Middle School Stencil Art Project!!

December 23, 2009
One of the most rewarding parts about being an artist is meeting someone at a show or getting an email that simply says “Thank you for being an inspiration.” Recently Ms. Chaplinski from Marlboro Middle School in NJ sent over these photos of her arts students’ completed stencil art project inspired by my artwork. I love how the children put this project together and I think the finished paintings are fantastic!! They did a great job!! See for yourself below and click on the images to view larger.
Congrats to Ms. Chaplinski’s Students for an AMAZING Job!!
Thank you with all my heart.
Completed set of paintings above and a small selection of individual paintings below.

PaperMonster’s Favorite Things December

December 18, 2009
I recently received an email that basically said “Ay PaperMonster. Where the hell are your favorite things for December?” In the chaos of Art Basel photos I completely forgot to post my favorite things for this month and now here they are right in the middle of all this holiday celebration. First I have the videogame Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (HERE). If you follow me on Twitter (HERE) you know that I have been watching gameplay videos of this game and I am blown away. It has won several Game Of The Year awards and it deserves it. Catch a clip of the gameplay below. You will not regret playing full price for this game with everything you get in return. Following Uncharted 2 we have the Clipse new album “Til The Casket Drops.” I have been anticipating this album and could not be happier with it. There are so many tracks that just blow your mind in terms of quality music. Check out some of my favorite tracks from the album below and don’t forget to check out the album artwork by Kaws. Right After the clipse we have the cheapest gift you can get your loved one.The Pencil Crossbow (HERE) !! All you need is a couple of pencils and rubber bands and you can make your very own functional crossbow. Lastly we have the gift that keeps on giving.: HD video of Iron Man 2 (HERE). Can’t wait until May 7th. Hope you enjoyed my favorite things for December. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Photos: Art Whino Gallery Exhibition @ Art Basel Miami 2009 feat PaperMonster

December 16, 2009
Below you can find my final batch of photos from this year’s Art Basel Miami 2009. One of the biggest events that I had the pleasure to taking part in was Art Whino Gallery’s exhibition. Art Whino took over an entire location, creating a gigantic gallery setting with floating walls from the ceiling and the gallery even had its own bar, kitchen and pool. The quality of art was extremely high and many of the artists participating in the show were there to share their work with fans and the amazing crowds that stopped by the gallery. You can catch photos of the entire exhibition below.

Love the set-up of hanging walls fromm the building’s supporting beams. Beautiful.

The quality of art work was overwhelming.
