Greg Dulli’s voice is filling up my room. Nice. No one can beg and plead in such a seductive way as he can. Well some, but not a lot:) This should help my mood on this dreary, grey December day. Oh well. Bears have the right idea – hibernation.
At the close of 2011 I entered the Mono Competition by Gomma Books and filed an application for an artist residency in Cape Town. Fingers crossed it will work out:)
I don’t know about you, but I am totally ready for 2011 to be over and 2012 to start. I just know adventures are waiting:)
The title comes from the album ‘Gentlemen’ by, you guessed it, the Afghan Whigs.

I was very fortunate to be asked to do a photo shoot with the Jamal Thomas Band a little while ago. Jamal Thomas (1954, U.S.A.) is a drummer who has shared the stage with Maurice White (Earth, Wind & Fire), The S.O.S band and to this day still tours with Maceo Parker.
In 2009 Jamal met the young talented drummer Alex Bernath and decided to form the Jamal Thomas band.
