BRURAL/Part 1: Art/&/of/♥/vs./or/Design - group show at SET Gallery

I was recently invited to participate in the group show, BRURAL/Part 1: Art/&/of/♥/vs./or/Design at SET Gallery in Brooklyn. The show consists of work made by people who have a Design and  Fine Artistic practice and explores the similarities and differences of their work. It extends an understanding of the many possibilities of the creative practice. Many other great Fine Artists/Designers will be participating. I will be showing the new installation, Our Common Future, 2011/2012 (which has evolved since this documented image). If you are around the area please come to the opening, I will be there!

Your presence/present: FREE unique, small and large digital drawing give-a-way

This upcoming Wednesday, January 18th is my birthday. Like last year (and I believe years to come) I wish to give, and not receive anything on my day of birth. All who contact me electronically (e-mail, etc...) on that day and that day only, will either get a unique small digital drawing, or if you already have a small drawing you get to upgrade: I will send you a new unique large digital drawing. That's right, all who have received a small drawing will be given a new unique large drawing if you contact me on that day. If you have received drawings in the past feel free to ask for another (no limits). All I need from you is a physical mailing address to send the physical, paper officiating letter (letter of authenticity). As always, I will never sell, give, lend that information to any entity, person, etc...

Same rules apply as before with these digital drawings.

Email me here on Wednesday, January 18th 2012 and please include your name and postal address.

Again, your presence is the greatest present I could ever receive.

Free digital drawing to the first 3 people who contact me

You may have noticed something different in the numbers here, keep watching.
That's right, I am giving away another batch of small, unique, digital drawings.

Do you have questions about the drawings? Why would I give away a work of Fine Art that I truly believe in? Read here.

For those who already have a small drawing, you are entitled to upgrade your participation in the project: Now you will receive a large digital drawing.

So how do you get in on all this action? Just email me here, and please include your name and postal address. As stated in an earlier post: I will NEVER sell, lend, trade, give out any information sent to me.

Also note, even if you have more than one (or more than two for that matter), you can continue to request more.
