So I moved to New York and have been really busy with non art related stuff, but things are looking up! I have joined a small community art space/studio arts program called Wayfarers a few months back . Here is some things I had been working on through out the year. not the best but I found the north star and I'm heading somewhere. I will be more regularly posting. I'll post some of the drawings I did at the studio next week and the stop motion animation character I have been slowly building. I'm prepping for 2012...time to get busy. thanks for listening...

devour sustenance, then paint...scrap paint from work...made on a woodshop wall no one will ever see. except M.R. Volpe -"You couldn't invent someone like M.R. Volpe. He was a... he was one of a kind. He was a mutant. A real heavyweight water buffalo type... who could chew his way through a concrete wall and spit out the other side covered with lime and chalk and look good in doing it."

Thanks everyone for coming to the show!!! A special thanks to the Together Gallery, Cars and Trains for playing a rad set, and a very special thanks to Matt Stangel at the Portland Mercury for the review...this is what he wrote:
"In five days, local artist Tom Keating will be moving to NYC. As many folks are used to seeing his work in coffee shops and galleries around town— Backspace, Report, and others— Keating will be missed. His illustrations often incorporate newsprint and always depict unique interpretations of the human anatomy. His characters hands are stumpy, their heads squared, and their noses like a boxer's, in contorted angles and smashed triangles.
I'm particularly bummed that Keating is leaving town because he's an artist I've been keeping in the Rolodex for a while now, watching from the sidelines as his style has developed into something truly distinct. Lately his characters have been painted with multiple sets of eyes— an extension of Keating's tendency to give his figures distorted features. His work represents an aesthetic-in-progress— it changes in subtle, traceable ways; it keeps you coming back."
I'll be back for a visit in the spring.
