CRAWFISH BOIL 2014! – Sat. May 17 • Baltimore

March 15, 2014 at 3:25 am

Crawfish Boil Returns for an 8th year!!!!

$25


We will need $25 upfront by Friday 5/2/14 (or preferably sooner) from everyone who plans to eat crawfish (paid either through the paypal button above, or by cash given directly to one of the hosts). This is going to be an expensive party, & there is really no way we can do it without the money upfront. Should buy you more than enough to eat. We’ll need at least 20 people to make this work (but no more than around 75 or so).

NOTE: If you’re submitting payment via Paypal, there is actually an additional $1.05 Paypal fee. ALSO!! If you are paying for multiple people, you may submit payment to this address: bendependent@hotmail.com

IMPORTANT ITEM #1:

Crawfish Boil will take place at the same location as it did last year.

Behaind a warehouse space a block from Mt. Vernon. The address of the warehouse is:

439 East Preston Street
Baltimore, MD 21202

IMPORTANT ITEM #2:

If you would like to invite extra people, please get in touch ASAP. This has sold out every year, and space is always limited. Invite will be open to previous atendees & guests of the buidling first, and then we’ll open it up to others if there is still space in a couple weeks from today (4/6/14). This means you should really get your money in NOW if you plan on attending! Also, please pass the word around to people who might not see this or use the FB event page.

If for some reason this doesn’t work out, I’ll return everyone’s money.

Also, this will happen RAIN or SHINE (we will have tents).

If you know nothing of crawfish boils, here is wikipedia’s decription:

A boil is done in a large pot (60 to 80 quarts) fitted with a strainer and heated by propane. Seasonings include crab boil packets, cayenne pepper, hot sauce, salt, lemons, and bay leaf. Corn, potatoes, onions, and heads of garlic are usually included.

First boil will start at around 2pm. Boils will get progressively hotter / spicier, so if you want to eat less spicy batches come early. If you can’t make it until later, I’ll save a batch for paid latecomers (just let me know how late you’ll be). Non crawfish eaters are welcome to bring something to grill. There will also be jambalaya. Any extra food you’d like to bring would be quite welcome.

If you need a ride, or if you plan on coming from NY or DC or elsewhere, we can probably find a place to put you up for the weekend. Warehouse is also located only 4 blocks from Penn Station, so that’s an option.

Things to bring:

• DRINKS!!! If there’s any extra money I’ll spend it on soda & alcohol, but most of the budget goes to the crawfish, so please bring your own drinks

• CHAIRS! The more the better.

• Extra food if you like. There will be a ton of food, but if you want to bring something else, or bring something vegetarian, or something for yourself to grill, that would be cool

• Clothes you don’t mind getting wet in if it rains

• SUNSCREEN!

• Dogs & babies. This place should be OK for both.

• Additional guests are also welcome, but please keep in mind that once the crawfish portion of this sells out, it’s sold out & I can’t add anyone else to the crawfish eater list the day of. Crawfish eaters will receive a commemorative 1″ button when they arrive so we can tell who has paid. Non crawfish eaters are still welcome to come hang out though.

I’ll post updates above this post & on the official:

Hope to see you here!

Art Shows: Artomatic & Galaxy Hut!

May 18, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Artomatic opens tonight in Crystal City, VA. I have a wall filled with things in it that looks like this:

Also got some press!

In: Washington Post Express & Huffington Post (Photo #45 & 46)

Artomatic will be open & on display until June 23.

If you’re coming this site from Artomatic & would like to purchase something in the show, please get in touch via this contact form & tell me what it is you would like to buy. I plan on adding all of the things in the show to my little web shop, but haven’t had a chance to get around to it yet.

I also have a newish show of large paintings at the Galaxy Hut in Arlington, VA. That show looks like this:

It contains 14 new paintings, all of which are for sale. I also still also have a few of the older paintings from the last Galaxy Hut show (the one that was up for several years). I plan on putting those up for sale (finally) as well.

Some press from that:

TBD

Current Galaxy Hut show will be up until June 2nd, when a new show will go up in its place.

DIRTFARM now runs in ANTIGRAVITY!

Am very excited about this. I’ve wanted the comic to run in New Orleans (my hometown) for a long time. I hope to start doing long-form illustrated personal stories for them eventually.

Comic has run in the last two issues (April & March – pictured above). Look for them!
