I’m a bit anxious about what I’ve gotten myself into…
…agreeing to participate in a chaotic painting/performance/installation/collaboration called PAINTALLICA.
The namesake should cancel out all the artsy-fartsy pretensions. My understanding is that there will be
a couple sleepless nights of a group of us ransacking a PICA-ordained gallery space. And the project is
headed up by my recently-mentioned Wisco’ art buddy Dan Attoe. It’s all part of the famous
Time Based Arts Festival in Portland. Here’s some details. And at the Portland Mercury.
For comics fans, Jeremy Tinder will also be joining in on the action. Also there will likely be much shirtlessness.

  1. I saw a slide show on the last Paintallica. They ended up creating a wild collaborative wonderland and nearly destroying the gallery in the process. Enjoy!

  2. Hi, Mr. Thompson.
    I’m from France, and just re-read “Adieu, Chunky Rice” … so, I discovered your blog, and enjoy it.
    Thanks for all that.

  3. Hello, I guess this is an akward place to be writing, i would have much enjoyed to email you. I want to tell you all the amazing things that i can relate to in your story Blankets that i just read.

    you should email me.

    that is if a busy author/artist like yourself, had just a split second =]

  4. Shirtless painting is a must. The year I started doing art again after a long break from it, I painted a mural while shirtless. I then proceeded to utter a primal yawp to the moon.
