My friend Denny from New York recently commissioned this portrait of his girlfriends blind cat, Gink. Gink enjoys drinking running water and singing with the birds outside the window.
I will be moving out of the studio I have been sharing with Jeremy Okai Davis and Brandon Walker. They were fantastic studio mates. Thanks guys. Above, Jeremy and I pose in Laura Domela's studio. www.lauradomela.com
