After hearing of the recent passing of Jaki Liebezeit, I thought it was a good time to repost this painting from a couple of years ago. It was a work in progress for an art show of re-imagining album covers of records that are important to you (unfortunately, the show never panned out).
I have loved CAN for so long that I cannot at this point remember when I was first introduced, though I was fortunate enough to have a local record store that had it's own LP section dedicated to krautrock. The music has been a constant inspiration for me ever since. RIP, Jaki.
EDIT: Per the request of a friend, I did a few touch ups and am making this available as a print in the store for a limited time. It is cool to do something with what was an abandoned project from a few years ago. Long live CAN!
Tomorrow is the opening reception for "Thunder-Snow", the new show at the Thunder-Sky, Inc. gallery in Cincinnati. Myself and several other local artists contributed blizzard-themed pieces in memory of heavy snowfall, other major natural events, and/or the great Cincinnati blizzard of '78. The painting that I submitted is below. I hope to see you there on Saturday (grab a delicious burrito next door at The Comet)! The opening is from 6-10 PM.
- CityBeat has graciously included the show in their "weekend to do list".
- As has Movers&Makers.
- Great article from The Enquirer.

My extremely hardworking, creative puppeteer pal Terrence and his Wump Mucket Puppet troupe make their PBS television debut this weekend on the season premier of Cincinnati affiliate CET's "The Art Show". I was at the filming at the Taft Museum back in August and the show and turnout was fantastic, I can't wait to see it translated on the screen. It will air on Saturday, January 7th (6PM) and Sunday the 8th (8PM). Check your local listings and try to catch it!
