Buff Monster at Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn, NYC. Showing through September 4, 2011

New York!  Head over to the Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn, for not just one, but two great exhibits by Buff Monster and Jeremyville, respectively.  Cotton Candy Machine is loaded from ceiling to floor with art prints, designer and custom toys, apparel, original art as well as posters – and it’s all very reasonably priced.  Be warned, you’ll probably want to get everything as it’s all so cool!   Their latest exhibit features work from Los Angeles based artist Buff Monster and Australia’s Jeremyville.  I’ve been a big fan of Buff Monster for a long time and this was my first opportunity to see so many works by Jeremyville in person. I loved what I saw.

I spoke with both Buff Monster and Jeremyville at the opening night reception and they are both extremely cool.  Jeremyville recently moved to New York from Australia and we spoke at length about everything from adjusting to the extreme weather conditions here to some of our favorite places in Manhattan.  You can see a photo of the two artists (including Jeremyville’s amazing T-shirt “Haters Just Need a Hug,” which features Darth Vader and R2D2 hugging it out!) below.

Stay Furry!

The Cotton Candy Machine is located at 235 South 1st Street in Brooklyn (at the corner of Roebling).  They are open Tuesday to Sunday from 12 – 8 PM.  Works by Buff Monster and Jeremyville can be seen until September 4, 2011.  Don’t miss it!

The recently opened Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn premiered its second exhibit on May 6, 2011. It is highly recommended as you’ll have the opportunity to see and purchase great art at very reasonable prices.  Zerofriends is a creative collective founded by Alex Pardee and features the artwork of many talented artists.  Featured at the Zerofriends exhibit are works from Skinner, Dave Correia, Robert Bowen as well as Alex Pardee.

What a week Tara McPherson is having!  The artist just launched her really cool store The Cotton Candy Machine (located at 235 South 1st Street in Brooklyn, New York) which sells art and clothing.  She celebrated by hosting “Tiny Trifecta,” an art show where 100 artists sold “tiny” works for $100 each.  Of course, the event was held on the 100th day of 2011.  I met Tara at the launch party and she was very nice!  Thanks Tara.  For all my Depeche Mode fans that are reading, see a poster Tara created for a 2005 show.  Super cool.  The print can be yours by visiting The Cotton Candy Machine.

Jon Schnepp is a funny mthr fkr!  He’s an American producer, director, actor, editor, writer and cinematographer.  You might recognize his voice as Gary the Dairy Fairy on “Aqua Teen Hunger Force.”  He also created the looks of all 5 characters on “Metalocalpyse,” an animated series about the world’s most popular death metal band, Dethklok.  The show is beyond hilarious, even if death metal is not your cup of tea.  When I met him the other night, I got the opportunity to express my joy from an episode of “Metalocalpyse” where the expression “Hamburger Time” is used in place of the word “death.”  He was extremely cool and by the end of our conversation, my sides hurt from laughing so hard.

He has two works of art on display at the “Tiny Trifecta” show at The Cotton Candy Machine located at 235 South 1st Street in Brooklyn.  One of the works is pictured below.  Thanks again for being such a great guy and for endless laughs!  You can read an interview Jon Schnepp did with Worley Gig at this link.
