Recently, I spoke at TEDxGeneva. The theme for the event was freedom in the digital age, and, where my talk was concerned, it was about how we define freedom for artists. The video won’t be available for a while, but, for a taste of the sorts of things I talked about, visit this section of my blog!

TALKINGS AND WRITINGS
Not too long ago, I talked with the Creative Insurgents crew about art marketing and copyright. The video of the interview is here. Also, my work was featured in a recent article on The Abundant Artist, and I was interviewed on Artist Think here.

ON ART AND SCIENCE
Last summer, as part of The Art Of Science Policy exhibition at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in DC, I was invited to speak at Visualizing Science Policy in 20x20 along with a number of other artists and scientists. You can read more about the event here on the AAAS site.
All of the talks are available online here. Mine explains details of some paintings from my Apple Pie series, and it explores how art and science are about questions instead of answers. It begins at the 57 minute mark.
These days, I’m working on a new collection of portraits. Cover/Flaunt explores the ways we minimize or emphasize different facets of our identities in order to navigate mainstream culture.
POSTERS AND PRINTS FOR SALE
This poster is one presentation of Crime Against Nature, the book I published in 2012. It combines an image of the work with the text from the book to create a punchy little meme that sums up the point of the project: that we don’t know as much about what is actually natural as we think we do!
BOOKS FOR SALE
I now have a section of my site that gathers all my books together in one location. This also allowed me to put the entire e-book Crime Against Nature directly on my site. You can flip through it here.
And, to celebrate my tenth anniversary as a full-time working artist, I published this new e-book. It’s about how art marketing isn’t just about selling more art. You can read it here for FREE, or there’s a downloadable PDF version of the book available for $3.
In the last decade, I’ve been pleased to paint lots of fascinating people. If you’re looking for one in particular, check out this page listing all of my portraits by the subjects’ names.
BLOGGING WITH VIDEO AND IN FRENCH
I keep a blog that is sometimes in French and often in English—more and more the articles and videos are presented bilingually. It’s a lot of writing and process images with a good amount of photos and videos too.
The video at right is an example of my vlogging. In it, I talk about how hard work is more important than talent.
