I recent went to the Open Studios in Gowanus, Brooklyn. It is a weekend when all of the art studios in the area are open to the public. You get to see where and how artists work. One person we visited was artist, Curtis Wallin. He had some pretty funny work which depicted him as the King of a fake country. A goofy demagogue of sorts. I noticed a handgun painted pink on a cut-out piece of wood. I asked if I could be photographed holding it. It was a true case of life imitating art. Here you have proof, 2 squirrels holding fake guns.

Wherever I go, I must visit the famous sites. So in Berlin, I went to the Brandenburg Gate. I went early in the morning because it was close to my hotel. In fact, I was the only one there at first. The morning sun was streaming through. Within an hour it was teaming with nuts. That's the way I like it though. I'm sure a lot of important crap happened here. Unfortunately I know none of it.

My dad just had triple bypass heart surgery. He is mending very quickly and doing excellent. I'm very proud of him. My mom is amazing in being there all the time for him. It is overwhelming what doctors can do these days. Plus I get to draw a lot of cool things.

After Yun and I vacationed in Tuscany, I went to Berlin by myself for a few days. It was much different than I thought it was going to be. First off, the joint is enormous. I spent hours and hours walking and would hardly make a dent. This is a drawing I did of the Berliner Dom. The buildings were all new and modern. None of that skyscraper stuff like New York. I ate Currywurst all day long. It's a groovy artsy place, so I fit right in. I visited all the old neighborhoods, drank some beer and avoided all the museums.

The movie, "Nightcrawler," opens today nationwide. Yun and I went to the premiere in New York the other night. Jake Gyllenhaal stars. His character is edgier than Walter White in Breaking Bad. Is is a wildly original film. The screenplay is brilliant. It was written and directed by our friend, Dan Gilroy. His wife, Rene Russo also stars. It was produced by his brother, Tony Gilroy, and edited by their other brother, John. That's right, the super Gilroy family. I highly recommend it. It's perfect for this Halloween season. Trust me on this one.
