This seems like it might be really cool, but I can't find any info on it. Here's the press release:

Thirteen students from the illustration, painting, photography and sculpture departments at SCAD will show their work in "SCAD@Large," an exhibition featuring work too large to be exhibited on the SCAD-Atlanta campus. The exhibition will be on display Sept. 19 - Oct.5 at the Factory, a 6,000-square-foot space with 25-foot ceilings. Students and faculty have worked together to develop site-specific work for the space. Morgan Alexander, Yana Dimitrova, Harrison Fraley, Suzy Maier, Macy Moore, Charles Parham, Seana Reilly, Richard Robbins, Brandon Sadler, Whitney Stansell, Cynthia Taylor, Yukari Umekawa and Whitney Wood are participating in the show.
Can any of you SCAD students/groupies tell me more?

DragonCon (Still) In My Brain

Clint Zeagler of Pecan Pie Gazette posted a collection of his Dragoncon photos a few weeks ago.

They're very spur-of-the-moment type shots, but a few of them (my favorites) are really closer to abstract art than portrait or scene photography. I think they do a good job of capturing the quieter, more ornamental side of the convention: waiting for panels to start, climbing between levels of the Hyatt, and just slowly weaving your way through a crowd.

Anyway, I really am working on writing about some more gallery stuff, I just haven't found much to inspire me these past few weeks since Matt Relkin's awesome Young Blood show. I'll be at Rabbit Hole and Beep Beep tonight, so we'll see.

Content Coming Soon

I took these two pictures on my last day in Istanbul. The top one was taken from above the city's old wall pointed South, looking slightly West (into the city), and the bottom one was taken looking slightly East, towards a few fields in the unclaimed area around the base of the wall.

Things to see this week:

Othersound Festival (Thursday through Saturday)

and there's a band playing Eyedrum on Monday called "Duet For Theramin and Lapsteel." Which is going to be awesome, as long as you dosed up on your pill of choice beforehand (Ambien for me, thanks!)

Yehuda Moon

Yehuda Moon's been blowing my mind lately. It's a comic centered around biking and working at a bike shop. There's a strong focus on bike advocacy - in a recent series, the title character painted bike lanes onto a busy stretch of road, then spent the next few strips fighting with the city government. The plot based strips are fine, even though they tend to be a bit preachy. But Rick Smith really excels in the strips he draws to mark each new season. The one above was spring; this is fall:

And this is early February:
