So much is going on.... [May. 29th, 2012|07:38 am]

Big news A) of course is that my book, War Paint: Tattoo Culture & the Armed Forces is out and you should buy a copy -- you can order it at your local brick and mortar store or get it from Amazon.

Big news B) is that the Amanda Palmer Kickstarter will likely hit $1,000,000 sometime today. So far 61 people have chosen the Bed Song Book which Neil & I are doing together. This is significant in that the books are $1,000 a pop. I'm kind of thunderstruck by this and, of course, there's significant pressure to make it the bast looking art book on the planet.

I'm still finishing up a few more photos for the Bed Song book, so if you're in Philly, especially West Philly and still want to be in on it, drop me a line.

Big news C) is that I shot a video for Ego Likeness last week and saw a rough cut of it last night and it looks very, very nice.

Big news D) is Roller Derby related. If you haven't already, please "like" the Facebook page. It's the best way to keep up with what's happening with the Roller Derby Portraits project and also, it'll be a lot easier to convince a publisher to take on the book if it's got 5,000 facebook fans already.

Big news E) is a top sekret projekt with S.J. Tucker which some of you might know about -- Shadowcaptain is in charge of leaking rumors about that -- you'll have to track him down on the Interwebs and stalk his feeds, but if you're interested in what SJ and I might be doing, you should enjoy the treasure hunt.

Big news F) is that I'll be at the Amanda Palmer Kickstarter Party in NYC this Thursday. Say "hi" if you see me.

I think that's it. Be well everybody. Do something special today.

Amanda's art for "The Bed Song" that she drew on a sheet, does indeed feature a cat ;)

the local brick book store was being a total pain about War Paint. So I got it from Amazon. We only have a tiny BaM here and a trip to the city is not planned for a bit. I did not want to wait that long to get to B&N so we ordered =p.

I can't wait to see (well, at least some of) it all--but you and Ego Likeness together (again) just strikes me as sublime...

that sounds like a "First printing has already sold out" kinda email :) (or the less awesome "publisher is completely incompetent" email, but I'd place my bets on the first)
