Cathie Bleck

I was at Cathie Bleck's opening last Thursday. She's a fantastic illustrator that is turning toward more un-commissioned work lately -- very beautiful and sensual large scale scratchboard pieces. She mainly uses animal and plant forms and has created a very personalized mythology from it. Everything is swirling and intertwined and somehow becomes simultaneously chaotic and calm. Seeing the originals is a treat. Since the image is scraped out of the surface, and sometimes painted back on top, they take on a sculptural quality that just can't be fully appreciated in reproduction.

Cathie Bleck
"Elemental Stories"
April 25 – June 6
1133 Avenue of the Americas
(43rd and 44th street)

She also has an art book out, Open Spaces which is well worth picking up – a nice simple design that lets the work speak for itself. It also shows lots of sketches, something I always enjoy seeing.

That show was incredible. I love how her lines undulate and twist, constantly keeping the eye moving. It was great to see so many originals. I saw you there, and didn't get a chance to say hi, so now here's a hi that also takes me out of the realm of Creepy Blog Lurker. :)

Also, Vincent just gave us word that you'll be on the panel for the portfolio review, and the FIT crowd is pumped!

Hi Bri - I saw you walk in but then lost you before I could say hi. Yeah, I'll be seeing you guys at FIT. Should be fun!

I like a game which you need use flyff penya to play. If you want to be online to play this game, I can borrow flyff moneyto you. When you have flyff gold, and than you can go on this game. Of cause, when you are first to play, you can buy flyff penya. If you have enough cheap penya, you will be able to different games.

I like to earn rappelz rupees, because it is very interesting. I think if you meet the rappelz gold, you will like it too. And when you play the game well you can get some cheap rappelz rupees as the rewards from the game. As long as you have a lot of rappelz money in the game you will be strong, and you can go to buy rupees with the other players.
