33

It's my birthday today. Here is the card from my mom (outside + inside), which features an eerily accurate portrait of me that I assume she commissioned some artist to do. When you open it up it plays "I Will Survive."



And here is the front of my stepdad's card. This is, hands down, my favorite photo of the three of us ever taken.



Yay! I'm going to go out of my house and do some stuff now.

Money Gig

I don't talk about it too much because I imagine it's boring, and I'm a weirdly precious "artist" and artists sometimes get cagey about things they do for money, but I have a column now on Patch Fort Lee. It's called "Culture and Character" and delves into the hearts/minds of Fort Lee-ians, commenting upon the arts scene and slight oddness of that Northern NJ community. The articles go up every Wednesday; here's one, and at the bottom are more links to some others. You can Facebook-like the pieces and recommend them, if you are inclined to do so.

I am really enjoying the job so far. When I was growing up, my fam and I would pass through Fort Lee every weekend on our way back into NYC from the country (it's the last town in New Jersey before you cross the George Washington Bridge), and it's fun learning more about it. So close to the city, quite small, full of interesting history and strangeness.
