The legend of Herr Neas and Jeremy Okai Davis - Artist

So our local record shop has an art gallery in the back. Always interesting stuff there. Right now they are featuring some works from an impressive artist named Jeremy Okai Davis. Check it: It's called "the Deer Show".

Here is his site with pictures of his stuff.

So this past Saturday was the opening show, and I wanted so badly to go and shake his hand after saying hello (that rhymes). I first heard of him from the Beard Contest I was in over the winter, but when we were all in Nashville for the "Beard Throwdown" party I never talked with him other than to say hi when Jaime and I were leaving.

So my brother, sister-in-law, nephew, and niece were in town all last week and we went to the Tides game Saturday, so that's why I didn't go to meet the man behind the Enid painting.

I'm watching "Ghost World" again tonight. I can't get to sleep and work has me blind with meetings, powerpoint slides, and visio diagrams. But "ghost world' made me remember his "Enid" painting and it made me remember that I missed you people.

Look at this version of the Enid painting because it's much better than the one on this website:

Here's Jeremy's blog with a little write up of his trip up-South to Norfolk.

Neas was there! Ahh, Neas. Scott Neas. Herr Neas. Good man. He's a legend, but nay a mythical one. He's very very real. He's a dynamo. Being around him make you feel good. Like something special is happening just because he's there. Really. He's one of those. Those that are mad for the world. "...the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk,...the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace things, but burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pop and everybody goes "AWWW!"" (source)

Here he is on The View talking about his mustache!

Got an email from him just a few hours back. Wants to know if I'm interested in seeing Dungen at the Satellite Ballroom in Charlottesville, VA next Thursday. Alas, I don't know if I can make that. My Brother-in-Law's Transplant Games is that week and Jaime and I and all here family are going to be there to cheer him on. Two years with Jaime's Sister's Kidney! Congrats!

Hey, The Transplant Games is in Louisville, Ky only a half and hour from my birthplace! Maybe I can show Jaime where it all started.
