1. I just backed the Kickstarter by Allan Amato! It is a worthy use of your time and dollars, an important look into the secret world of artists. Names like Dave McKean, Jon Schnepp (omg, METALOCALYPSE!!), Kent Williams, Grant Morrison, Barron Storey and Neil Gaiman.
loads of delicious rewards for very little moneys. Please support and share the good word.
these are some of my favorite quotes on the project:
Amato creates faces like Donald Westlake creates prose: raw, biting and stark, with a sheen of cool.-Thomas Jane
Allan Amato is a lot like a wizard: his photos take us places we’ve never been. This is particularly unsettling when you were the one in the photograph.-Neil Gaiman
Allan’s photos are where science and magic overlap.-David Mack
I can’t stand to look at myself unless I’ve been photographed by Allan Amato. His dazzling compositions and naked artistry are breathtaking. Plus, he makes me look thin. All right: thinner.-Kevin Smith
me again, I am so proud of Amato-san for going out and tackling his dream job. Go get em, tiger.
2. Neverwear.net has been down since i was on tour with Soundgarden this last month. It has been caught in a sticky net of webbing and so now the universe forces me to FINISH the upgrade I started. Please stay tuned, and I hope to have it up shortly, in a new form. email with any questions! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
