Some late responses to a reoccurring fan question…
Posted by nikkiann0100 – Mike, any new info regarding Glorious Excess (Dies) would be awesome. Cant wait to see the show. 🙂
Posted by Madlen – What’s going to happen to your character in your new art show “Glorious Excess:Dies”?
Posted by cuz – Hey Mike, tell me how Glorious Excess (Dies) is going? Are you still working on the pieces or you’re done? Let us know anything about it. I loved the Born art show and can’t wait for the next one.
M: As you guys now know, the GLORIOUS EXCESS DIES show is coming to the Japanese American National Museum on August 29th. I’ll be there once again, at the opening, to say “hi” and sign stuff. This week, I’ve been putting the final touches on a NEW BOOK that covers the entire Glorious Excess (Born and Dies) experience, from beginning to end. I’m really excited about it.
There will be images of all the artwork, including some sketches and photos of the pieces unfinished. Shepard Fairey wrote the foreword. I wrote five different texts describing the thoughts behind the show. I think this is the first time the real ideas behind Glorious Excess have truly come into focus, and I hope you all get to check it out.
In unrelated news, a couple friends of mine are involved in putting together the Tattoo Hollywood Convention. (No, it’s not Chester and Club Tattoo) Shouts out to NORM. For those interested, here’s the info. Good stuff…
