About this project

I have my first art opening in New York City on the 24th of October.  Since my time in art school, it has been my goal to be shown in NYC. Now, it is my goal to overtake New York with my artistic style. 

I run a little blarg (yes, a blarg, I have an aversion to the word "blog") called "I'd Like Cheese on My Entire Family," also known lovingly as Da Cheeseblarg.  It keeps me sane, keeps me positive, got me to quit biting my nails, and might have the ability to cure cancer, or at least chronic halitosis.

This project is an extension of the Cheeseblarg and my way of making, what would be "vacation pictures," something worth calling mine.  I plan on taking photos of landmarks and architecture in NYC, superimposing dinosaurs, zombies, llamas, a few narwhals, and then (in most cases) redrawing them in my distinctive style, not unlike the image below:

The Chaperone- JRose- 2011

The funds, in theory, would go towards my airfare, lodging, travel to and from landmarks, the materials needed to create prints, shipping, and possibly a limited run of books (depending upon the amount of material I create in the series).

I have plans. I have the drive. I don't have the money. Until I am actually there, there is not much that can be done towards the project beyond plotting and imagining.
