Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Joyous Kwanza, happy Fetivus, joyful winter solstice,... Whatever it is you celebrate at this time of year, I hope you had a happy one!
2012 is almost over.
Here are the highlights:
The world didn't end
New York City isn't flooded any longer
My studio, MONOLisa is almost open.
I was reminded recently of a conversation I had with a friend at the top of the year, where I said to him,
"Either the world is going to end or I will have my own studio by 2012. One or the other!"
Ok, I'm a couple weeks off, but late is better than never, and after 4 months of preparation, I'm happy to announce that MONOLisa will be opening in 2 WEEKS!
I still can't believe it, and I'm sure Home depot did well this past quarter.
There are some people I need to thank for their generosity, support, and plain ol being cool people.
Rich Kulsar, Bob and Pat Barbarita, Dennis Wynn, FIONA BLOOM, Jermaine Ridgeway, Angel the contractor, Bob and Raymond Bonanno, My students (future interns) at CCM (Rigel Turdiu, Tony Beavaqua, Matthew Diana, SONJA NELSON, Paris Nuttall,
Jan Pepino, Rachel Polak, Stephen Price, Joseph Ufer, Andrei Valdivia & Ben Fish), Matt Weiss and Laura Zahn, Pete Benjamin, ..
The list will keep growing, as I"m sure in my bubblebrain existence as of late, I've forgotten someone, but I have to say,..
You all inspire me to move mountains.
Pictures and a website coming soon
Until then, my friends, party like it's 2013!
