SMARTFISH STUDIO &
This weekend as part of Cincinnati's "Final Friday" I participated in an art project at Smartfish Studio. I have been dying to get these curtains up for months now and I am so pleased about how they turned out. The prompt word of "COMMUNITY" links it to the piece below. I love how the flags in the photograph work with my T-shirts!

A recent trip to an antique mall let me to a new discovery about myself: I am quite fond of black glass. Now, glass has always been cool...I collected beach glass and love old bottles and shiny things, but there is a new tres chic element to a crap load of black glass. I am imagining a great dinner party with all the place settings like the ones above. I think a new collection has begun!

HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE PART TWO: THE END
Here are some images from the MGGM show Aug. 4th. The focus was on the end of the universe. I felt it appropriate to try and sell some shirts for THE end. The image is film stills of the Big Bang in reverse. The Phrase is to the point. Get one before they are gone...and you are too...
I made the display rod as well...
Tiffa Fisha got her's...

I have been thinking a lot about "the object." I have also been spending a lot of time at the gym. This is having an affect on my work and think it's a good one. I am calling these objects "Studs" as they are clearly stamped. They are looking good and ready for their close ups.

I've always wondered about the possibility of a finite number of faces available...genetically. It's kind of like a big statistical mind f*ck. Like, eventually every song will be written because every combination of notes will get used up...eventually...
So, I notice people who look alike and I wonder if we aren't moving in that direction too. In college we all had a "twin" or "doppelganger" that freaked us out on campus and gave us our first glimpse that we may not be alone. Above you see the freaky resemblance between Tiffany Thiessen and Jamie Bamber. Below is a real doozy...the spectrum of the same face...

So, in Paris this summer I saw this image in a store window. The Lanvin ads for FW/11 must have been ripe in my mind because I NEEDED THE HAT. I went in to find that the store sold women's shoes...annoying. Upon my return I scored a similar hat from a friend...
After wearing it out (quite a bit) - I became a cartoon? YES! This little darling is a bit image made by another friend...I love it. GEEK ON!

TIGHTEN IT UP
The walls of my studio have been ravaged and coated with all types of images these past few months. I have distill these quick collages into lucid thoughts, and I now have two clear series of images. Check out the finished works on www.jamesschenck.com...here is a sampling...

Here is a project I worked on over the summer with the help of Katy Tompkins, Alex Womack, and Alex Walp. A space originally used as a wig and hair shop in the heart of Over The Rhine gets a facelift as part of the continuing revitalization of OTR and becomes the best bar in town. Speak-easy gin and vintage records lubricate your evening in the best possible way...and the windows ain't bad either.
