If you love Skulls and Taxidermy Bats as much as I do, you will flip out over NYC-based artist Joseph Grazi’s new collection of sculptures and drawings, God Complex, up for just three short weeks at Joseph Gross Gallery. Seriously, it is pretty awesome.

Hey what’s up.  I hope you missed me as much as I missed all of you. I just got back from spending a wonderful week having non-stop rad fun in south Texas with my sister, Keven (or in Espanol: “Quevan,” as I am now calling her). We basically wore ourselves to nubs being shameless tourists, but it was worth it. One of my favorite things we did together while in Texas was cruising out onto Austin’s LadyBird Lake close to sunset and watching 800,000 small bats fly out from under the Congress Avenue Bridge. Seriously, that was just insane. Anyway, Texas (San Antonio in particular) is awesome. You should go there for a vacation, and tell them I sent you.
