Painter Mark Roth lives and works in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan. This week, thanks to Hurricane Sandy, he’s one of several thousand New Yorkers without power. Well, electricity. He’s still plenty powerful. In his honor, I give you Mark’s video of his 16 month long process creating the vibrant Joan of Arc Riding My Little Pony, backed up by—who else?—Carl Sagan, auto-tuned. Enjoy.

Mr. Carl Sagan, ladies and gentlemen! CARL SAGAN!

154 tornadoes, all hitting Tribeca at the exact same time. What are the odds? Pretty good, actually. See this rare occurrence on June 15 from 7-11 pm.
Tuesday night, come to a one night Pop-Up Event at hip-hop mogul Damon Dash’s new space, The Dash Gallery. You’ll see all of the new Tornado Series – 154 paintings in a process assemblage – and hear a “3-headed genre-defying [vibe] monster bred in NYC’s lower east side,” Cubic Zirconia – LIVE.
They’re celebrating the release of Cubic Zirconia’s new single Black and Blue – for which Mark Roth provided cover design: Tornadoes, of course.
