Greetings Ocean Drive readers

Really. I appear in this month's print issue as well, so pick it up wherever Zone 10 fabulosity is distributed. An unnamed notable party at Ocean Drive is one of's most dedicated lurkers, and I want to thank him for his longtime interest in my work.

Also at that link, there's a story about an exhibition at ArtCenter curated by Kristen Thiele: Post No Bills, A Rock Poster Show. Kristen is an important and locally underappreciated force in the world of silkscreened band posters. She is also the slated printer for the poster, coming soon, just in time for the holidays. (The slated printer for the t-shirt is Hemlock Ink here in Boston.) bows in the general direction of Kristen.

"Einspruch’s aversion to the loosey-goosey “everything is valid” aesthetic approach that seems to hold sway here in the subtropics."

... and, seemingly, just about everywhere else too...


I just wasted an hour of my life yesterday at a lecture where the U of Toronto art historian Mark Cheetam pontificated on the earth-shattering significance of the "hyphen-based" part of an artists biographical description... you know, like "Franklin Einspruch is a Boston-based painter, showing in Miami"... you see, it speaks of contemporary notions of cosmopolitanism, and whatnot... very important stuff, worthy of academic wanking... er, I mean, study.

As I've always insisted:

Stick to writing.

Do you insist this of anyone in particular, JJ, or just the world in general?

Kristen is very cool, certainly more genuinely so (in the good sense) than any number of starlets and pseudostars in the rather dubious firmament of the Miami art scene. This would, of course, be news to them, but that's part and parcel of the delusions of with-it-ness.

I'm so flattered! A curtsy back to you in your general direction. Just imagine a big ol' hoop skirt, since I'm wearing pants.
