Gag Me With A Toon:: April 5th, 2008
Current mood: Fucking Excited
Amongst artists born in a certain period of time there is an affinity for the animated iconography of the 1980’s. In April Meltdown Gallery presents GAG ME WITH A TOON, a new works exhibition that will showcase the work of more than twenty creative souls who have been tainted with the neon fruit stripe of Morning in America. Utilizing everything from the saccharine funk of Strawberry Shortcake to the disciplined fashion fervor of the Baroness of Cobra these artists will explore the sketchy in-betweens of animated femininity. In the gallery we shall weigh the sins of Scrappy-Doo and balance them against the irreligious inclusion of Godzuki, Baby Plas and 7-Zark-7. A measure will be made of thunderous barbarians and thunderous cats and of friends both super and amazing. Be ye short and blue or bionic, a real he-man or just your average joe, you will find yourself transformed after having stood amongst the time-displaced art of these stellar talents.

Steven Daily, Born in Riverside California, Steven Daily did a considerable amount of moving, between California and the American Mid-west, during his formative years. It was during these years that his passion for art was sparked and began to flourish like wildfire. After graduating from Bolsa Grande High School, he attended Riverside Community College, and later transferred to Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Unsatisfied with the schooling he had received, Steven took it upon himself to develop a style as individual to the world as he. Steven has done just that. Graffiti played an enormous role in his learning, teaching him patience as well as color theory and composition. In 1997, propelled by the advice of a former professor, and a meeting with a Disney executive, Steven concluded that the time had come to become serious about his career as an artist. Today, Steven’s work is extremely stylized, and his paintings are emotionally evocative. He has shown in numerous galleries nationwide. He has created a sizeable body of work. Mr. Daily is extremely busy these days lately being a children’s books illustrator also working on several exciting new projects, so you can expect to see much more from him in the immediate future.

Well, It's been a while since I updated.
First of all, i want to thank those who helped out and supported by purchasing art and toys.
I love your gutsies
This last month was pretty, interesting.
Tomi and I have been struggling this past couple of months since the car accident.
It's been kinda like, camping. except were not out side,there is no tents, or animals, and were not freezing.
I broke my toe, about three weeks ago. and Have just been able to walk, and or get around. as of lately.
I broke it the stupidest way possible. While carrying this epic sandwich that Tomi made me. Full of turkey, Provolone cheese, and egg on a baguette o goodness. I stubbed my toe on the couch leg, which is steel.
And broke my pinky toe. The break made me instantly nauseous so I was double sad.
After a while I managed to eat the sandwich, because I couldn't let all that goodness go bad!
After a few days my whole foot was bruised black and all ugly.
You cant do anything for a broken toe so I just stayed off of it and taped it to my other toe.
But it's not all bad news, Tomi and i have been super productive.
working non stop. its been a blast. We are completely nocturnal now but hey were getting shit done.
I have finished three paintings in the last two months, done several sketches, and a commission!
Lots of exciting things on the horizon. A light at the end of my camping tunnel.
So to speak.
Take care, and thanks again for all your support.

Tomi, and I were in a car accident on Christmas morning.
