Day 365


New Year's Resolution Butchery! Chop up those resolutions.

(Please excuse the lack of color. I'm busy being awesome in wine country, and forgot my watercolors.)

On this last day of 2010, whilst sipping some awesome prosecco and prepping for some serious roast pork shoulder, I just wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank every person who ever checked out this little weird project of mine, left a comment, or purchased some meaty art goodness this year.

When I started the project on January 1, 2010, I was just looking for something to keep me busy and creative after quitting my attorney job. I never for once thought that nearly a year later, 1) anyone would even know about this strange project, 2) my art would be in hundreds and hundreds of homes, 3) I'd get paid in fancy beer, 4) get assignments from MAJOR companies* and be featured by websites I've followed and respected for years, or 5) be planning an enormous pig butchery mural(!!!!!!) for a pizza joint** And as a serious food-lover, the fact that so many chefs either bought or received meat sections art as gifts this year is incredibly gratifying and rad. RAD.

I don't want to get all weird like a end-of-the-year VH1 special though, because this meat train is going to keep on chugging in 2011. Expect to see Meat Sections in some interesting places, WAY more of the "Meat My City" posters***, larger prints, and new meaty products.

Thanks and Happy New Years!!

*stay tuned folks. I can't talk about it yet, but its amazing.
