I´m still in mexico but thought i´d check iñ... Mexico Çity is loco, way the hell too much polution and traffic, i could start a dirt farm with what i blow out of my ñose every night... not cute. But other things are ok, good hotel, good food, good art, kooky functionalist buildings everywhere, and hilarious billboards I cant get into right now... I painted a mural in a record 4 days, today and tomorrow I will hang my drawings alongside of Orozco´s drawings from the museum collection. I like his drawings of prostitutes and drunken parties, he was a great drawer and makes me look good. Ms. Andry, if you´re out there please come back.... we need you! meanwhile heres some questioñs from the Baer Faxt. post answers in the comment section if you feel inspired...

i cant decide about my favorite auction house, thats a hard one!
I missed a lot of shows but this is what stands out from what I saw:
Favorite museum show: comic art show in LA - from McCay to Panter, Kirby to Kurtzman, plus E.C. Segar! There is such warmth in old hand drawn comics from the teens and twenties - honorable mention: Paul Noble is great at Ecstasy
Favorite new artist: I'm noticing a lot of interesting things going on with Vancouverites - also saw some nice drawings by Keegan Mcsomething-or-other at J. Hanley. Does Simon Evans count as a new artist?
Favorite gallery show: I keep thinking about that Daniel Zeller show at Pierogi
Least favorite museum show: I'm still trying to wipe that Howard Hodgkins show at the Met a few years back from my memory, does that count?
Favorite auction house: Huh?
Favorite Museum Show:
Julio Le Parc at the Daros LatinAmerica in Zurich, hmmm but a close second would have to be a fabulous Arachnids show i saw in Venice as a teen. The jumping orange Brazilian tarantula still fills me with warm and fuzzy thoughts..!!
