I'm in the process of installing a new operating system and a bunch of new software on my computer, reorganizing all my online content, and putting together a few new projects that you kids are gonna love.
Keep checking this blog and follow my twitter feed to follow my trials and tribulations in getting it all together, and, if you like what you're seeing, please tell your friends and maybe even click the donate button to the left and drop a penny in the till. Thanks, kids. You know I love ya!
Apparently, it's good enough for Mickey. In other news, there's a lot of fuckin' rain in NJ.

I'm selling this one, and the Jeter from a previous post, for $75. If you wanna commission a drawing like this for yourself, prices start @ $50.
I gotta say, I love the look of these pieces. I'm gonna be doing a lot more of them.
Now, while that would certainly be simpler for me, would it be easier for you out there in webland? Would you find that too difficult to figure out and navigate? Would it look less professional? I don't look at it as being more complicated because, instead of having to build a number of different pages for my site, I'd just upload content to various websites. The links page at the side of this blog would take the place of the menu on my website. So, what say you? I really do want feedback. Post in the comments below or hit me up facebook and twitter.

Now, I'm not asking for charity. I'm asking people to donate some money so that I can keep producing something they enjoy. In turn, I'll keep up my end of the bargain by bringing you even more; new art, music, videos, podcasts and blog posts.
In April, I'll be part of three public art exhibitions and be making my debut as a singer/songwriter with a new band. For the next month and a half I'll be documenting my preparations for these events and my struggles to keep CM Studios going in regular video diaries. I don't know if I'll be able to post a new one every day, but I'm gonna try. You're gonna be in on the band rehearsals, and the drawing and painting process as I mess around with some stylistic changes and new directions in my work. Whether these video diaries become a document of the end of my career or its new beginning remains to be seen.
So, please, if you can spare a couple of bucks to make a donation or buy a t-shirt, drawing, or painting, it will be greatly appreciated and put to good use. And, if you do like what it is I do here, please be sure to spread the word. Thanks.
Do You Believe In Non-Miraculous But Still Extremely Impressive Upsets? by Joe DeLessio, from NYMag.com, on last night's thrilling USA upset victory over Canada in men's Olympic hockey. I only got to read tweets about as it was happening because I'm a broke-ass artist still trying to pool together enough dough to turn my cable back on. If I wasn't a sports fan I wouldn't miss live TV at all. Even without it, I've still been able to get to a bar or friend or relatives house to catch the games I really want to see, but last night was proof of how great sports is. You never know when you're gonna see something truly great or historic. Also, congrats to NBC on airing the most thrilling event of the games so far on MSNBC where plenty of people without cable missed it and, maybe more importantly, plenty others missed it in HD. That's the way to appeal to sports fans in 2010.
The NY Post's Joel Sherman has the whole story on the Yankees signing pitcher Chan Ho Park. I like the move. A nice, relatively inexpensive pickup that could add more depth to the bullpen.
Here's a cool little post, with audio, from Cartoon Brew on San Francisco singer/songwriter Meagan Lynch's debut album "Songs the Brothers Warner Taught Me", which is a collection of classic American pop tunes made famous by early Looney Tune and Merry Melodies cartoons. Read more about it, and listen to the whole thing, at the Brew.
And, from the NY Times, comes this story on a conceptual art installation currently in Vancouver for the Olympics, that's a recreation of a bar in Belfast. That's right. They rebuilt The Whole. Fucking. Bar. Senator Blutarsky has nominated artist Theo Sims for a McArthur genius grant.

Thing Duo to discuss movies, music, celebrity charity singles & what the hell Susan Dey is up to lately. Check it out here. On a side note, that pic is clear evidence I need a shave and a haircut.
If you enjoy visiting the blog and checking out my drawings and paintings, if you laugh at my nonsense on twitter, want more videos and podcasts, and you've got a few dimes to spare, please click on that cute li'l golden button on the right and give whatever you're comfortable with to keep the operations here @ Craig Mahoney Studios humming along smoothly. It doesn't matter what you give. It could be $1. It could be $1000 (which would be AWESOME). If you can't afford to give anything, believe me, I understand. I still appreciate you comin' by.
Everyone who donates will get a personal shout-out and thanks from me here on the blog, and I'm gonna try to come up with some sort of a drawing to reward a lucky donor. Trust me, the more time I get to spend doing what I enjoy, the more you'll enjoy what I do. Thanks a lot, kids. And, as always, I love you all.
I've begun lining up guests for future podcasts and was lucky enough to have as my 1st guest Laura Gesin, the Jersey Shore social networking maven & founder of VoxPopNJ. We spent a great hour talking about a great many things, I thanked her for coming, promised to see her @ VPNJ's next event, and then sat down to mix down and upload the podcast. Unfortunately, the recording that I encountered was, to use a technical term, "completely and utterly fucked". I won't get into all the techie aspects, but I could not release what I heard to the public.
So, I now herewith give my public apology to Ms. Gesin, who will return to re-record this Monday, and urge you all to head to VoxPopNJ.com, follow her on twitter as @AsburyPop, and check out some of her great social networking workshops like the one coming up on Sat, Feb 27th @ The Showroom in Asbury Park entitled "Social Networking For Creative People". I'll be there to say a few words, and it will be followed by a screening of some local indie films. So, please, go ahead and check all that out, then listen to the podcast. You'll thank me later.
