Yes. I’m definitely taking this pandemic mayhem seriously while looking after my nearly-90 folks. Yesterday I went out for groceries with mask, rubber gloves and disinfecting wipes for 2 weeks worth of food. I’m sorry to say that I also think this is going to go on A LOT longer than just a few weeks (or even a few months). But no need to add more frowny faces to your day. I’ve also been doing lesser important things! Like making a new video from any available footage I could find to tell the story of my JesusDressup/Devil-costume years in New York. I originally was putting this collection of clips together to be used for the online exhibition scheduled for May (You heard me right. The exhibition is still happening.) but I think it turned out well enough to share with everyone now.
It’s basically a self-indulgent scrapbook assortment of highlights & mementos I’ve saved up from when Jesus Dressup hit the airwaves. That and everything leading into my time dressing up as the devil in NYC from 2002 to 2015 all edited together to tell the story best I can. Although it officially all began in 2000 in Chicago with just Jesus Dressup online. It is also a blatant promotion of the product I design and sell. Want some?
My next assignment relating to this online exhibit next month is to scan all of my Creatures Of Neptune art to put on display! Most of the pen and ink drawings from the 90s have never been seen publicly before! It’s all very exciting and fulfilling for me. This also includes my Humpty Dumpty booklet available for purchase.
Can I also say that it has not gone unnoticed how many of you are still buying stuff from me despite all that’s happening here, and around the world. I did not expect sales to continue for me. Thank you for your support! I’ve been including little gifts inside every order made since this all began. And there’s only one way for you to find out what those little gifts might possibly be 😉
I do have more plans for more videos in the weeks to come, and as soon as the weather gets nice enough to be outdoors I’m going to set up my own little make-shift coffee shop in our garage so I have a place to work on art projects. I find it nearly impossible to really express my creativity, with both writing and drawing in the house where my brain is constantly interrupted by junk phone calls, an attention craving dog, and all the basic distractions surrounding the desk in my bedroom. In short, I’m DYING to draw, and I’m almost at the spot where I feel free to do it.
Now, for the sake of a godless world with noone but us to make sure we survive, be careful and stay home for a couple weeks!
