If you can see this, you’ve survived the Mayan apocalypse. 2013 is here!  I took a brief survey of some of According2g.com’s All-Stars in the fields of art, music and publishing to find out what their 2013 New Year’s Resolutions are.  For those, like me that don’t make resolutions anymore, I asked them to tell us what they are looking forward to in 2013. Click on their name to be directed to their websites to learn more about these great minds.  Thanks to everyone that participated and I hope 2013 exceeds your dreams, goals and visions!

“I’m looking forward to a continuing Obama Presidency and an improving global economy due to less wasteful, more intelligent and focused behavior. I’m also looking forward to spring weather.” – Mark Kostabi, Artist.

“My resolution is to let go of old grudges and start developing some new ones. For the new year, I’m looking forward to human rights, cultural enchantment, and social bliss, but I’m not looking forward to any action film sequels.” – Michael Musto, Writer

“1. I am looking forward to the rest of the country realizing that all people have the right to love who they want and to celebrate that relationship in marriage.
2. I am looking forward to the rest of the country realizing that Muslims are not to be feared and in fact they are just like us.
3. I am looking forward to alternative forms of health care that utilize what is already here on earth. We are cutting down the rain forests and yet there are a lot of plants that can benefit mankind.
4. I am looking forward to humans embracing nature in everything we do. I want advertisements (ie., car commercials where the car dominates nature) to embrace nature not destroy it. We need this planet more than it needs us and if we don’t embrace it and take care of it, it will get rid of us for it’s own survival.

As far as new years resolutions… those are hard because most people who make them don’t keep them and then they feel guilty. My New Year’s resolution is to be nice to nature and humans and to lead by example. My job is to make new things and to not copy others. I want people to celebrate the hand made and to value it over technology. I want people to start talking to each other again instead of texting. Let’s return to the real next year.” - Don Porcella, Artist, Musician, Coffee Maker

“I’m looking forward to continuing health no matter what happens in 2013.  If you’re not healthy and feeling good you can’t enjoy the good times or battle the bad.  I’m having a show in late April of new sculptures and paintings at Paul Kasmin Gallery (in New York).   Also I’m involved in a futures show at the Museum of Art in Mobile, Alabama, which will include murals, installations and paintings, and  a large outdoor mural in Santa Monica, California, as well as other fun and big stuff (more work) that I don’t want to announce just yet.   Most of all, I hope the world makes the huge changes (wean off petroleum, for example) that need to take place in order for the children to inherit a better place!” – Kenny Scharf, Artist

“I am finalizing on designs for a t-shirt, cell phone cases, sticker sheets and the Summer 2013 Graphic Sunglasses! I’ll also be honing in on a location to paint my first public mural as well as my first public art show on my own in Manhattan. Some important first steps for the burgeoning artist – ALL of which G will be present and covering…i hope.” – TY, Artist

“I’m looking forward to making more stuff, being in New York more, traveling a little less and meeting more people – friends, neighbours, peers and pizzeria owners.  My Visa will expire in 2013 so I need to make the most of being in America before I’m shipped off back to the UK.  Cheers + happy holidays” – Jon Burgerman, Artist

“2012 was an amazing, special year. I wish 2013 will be a year of correction –  we have to discover new things and understand that many things we like or want are not necessary any more. We have to wake up from some dreams and create a new one better and powerful one. I want to be surrounded with great people in a beautiful places that will bring me inspiration and magic always to touch other people’s hearts and minds.  I want the summer to be longer and time to be slower.” – Nir Hod, Artist

“My Resolution for 2013 is to surpass my creative limits and to learn to speak fluent Spanish! Also, to have my project at the Bronx Museum (fall 2013) blow people’s minds! Hope to see lots more of you this coming year too!” – Scooter LaForge, Artist

Happy New Year’s, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa!” – Eric ‘Eyeball’ Richardson, Artist

Happy birthday to the tremendously talented artist Eric “Eyeball” Richardson.  Eric’s paintings are extremely detailed and you’ll find yourself amazed at the worlds he creates in his works.  You definitely have to visit his official website to take a look at photos of his works.  I know you’ll be knocked out!  The work pictured above is done on used subway Metro cards.  It measures around 8×10″ in size and I am very proud to have it hanging in my house!  Happy birthday, Eric.

Eric Eyeball Richardson's hand featuring art by Gigi Chen

Last night in New York at an art opening, I had the pleasure of chatting with two tremendously talented artists:  Eric Eyeball Richardson and Gigi Chen.  Prior to the opening, Eric was in the studio creating another one of his colorful masterpieces and he rushed across town in order to make the gala reception.  Fellow artist Gigi Chen noticed that Eric had some paint on his hand and she suggested that the “work was not finished.”  Gigi wasted no time and completed “the work” as you can see above!  It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness.  Luckily for all of us, I had my camera with me and preserved this great moment.

Thanks to Eric Eyeball Richardson and Gigi Chen for this great moment.  Let’s give them a hand!

Single Fare 2: Please Swipe Again. Now showing at Sloan Fine Art in NYC through March 26, 2011

After the tremendous success of last year’s “Single Fare,” an exhibit comprised of hundreds of artists making art on used MTA Subway cards, Sloan Fine Art in New York is now presenting the sequel:  “Single Fare 2: Please Swipe Again.”  The opening night gala on March 17, 2011 was quite a scene.  Proceeds from the sales last night benefited Transportation Alternatives (transalt.org) and Alliance for the Arts’ NYC ARTS (NYC-ARTS.org) and the gallery was packed to the rafters for art afficianados to add to their collections while raising money for great causes.
