Momus is a Better Blogger

It looks like my updates have slowed down to the point of erasing all entries from this blogs front page! I guess it’s time to resume posting. Some time ago I went to a Momus and Mai Ueda art performance in Chelsea. It was fantastic. I already blogged about it before. In fact it was my first post. Recently, I started scanning my sketchbook pages again and the image below was the first one to get scanned. It was drawn based on one of the photographs I took at the performance.

Since Momus was one of the major inspirations in getting this blog off the ground, it seems like as good a time as any to celebrate his great, and much more frequently updated blog.
