Joey Israel does it all!  He’s an accomplished New York City nightlife events promoter, fashion designer and artist!  If you are gay or bi-curious and live in New York, you’ve surely been to Boybox on Tuesday nights at G-Lounge which is organized by Joey.  It was such a coincidence that hours before talking with Joey, I was at the Christopher Henry Gallery for a really awesome exhibit called T Minus 20 (more on the exhibit coming soon!) and I noticed a really cool shirt in the exhibit that immediately stood out as one of my favorite pieces.  I was advised that it was made by the one and only Joey Israel.  I love when art imitates life imitating art.  During our conversation, a drunken drag queen came over to hug Joey and she crushed the pipe-cleaners on his shirt, but being ever the pro, Joey was back up and running and looking fabulous in no time!  Thanks again Joey for being so cool!  See you soon.

Don Porcella - now on view at the Claire Oliver Gallery in New York.

At a recent trip to the Claire Oliver Gallery in New York, I discovered works by artist Don Porcella.  He uses pipe cleaners to make his really cool pieces.  The above image says (from left to right): Four Eyes, Jerk, Fried, Towel Head, Thug.  Bottom Row: Fucker, Sucker, Geezer, Monkey, White Boy.  I don’t know about you, but I am loving these works.  Porcella was born in Modesto, California in the 60s and now resides in Staten Island, New York.  You can see more images of his really inventive art here.

Top Row: Towel Head, Thug, Weirdo, Stoner.  Bottom Row: Monkey, White Boy, Dick, Bitch.
