BIO
Chris Otto lives and works in New York City.

Activities have ranged from being accepted to speak at ICA London to helping VJ Kevlar with visuals at raves and fashion shows, to designing a website for male model Ngo [one of Ricki Lake\'s ten sexiest men:)].

His background ranges from studying at the infamous SFAI New Genres program to doing Flash for Organic to interning at Gyro Worldwide, practicioners of advertising par excellence. Past influences range from Gilbert+George to experiencing Rap+SS on the first formation tour to Hal Foster and Baudrillard. Currently he is inspired by mashups, rinseouts, freestyle skateboarding, and dangerous parties.

Amusingly, his current work is mainly large, somewhat AbEx paintings done with materials from KMart and St. Marks Place. Upcoming work will involve airbrushing.

Chris Otto is 25.

Re: Re: Art Star/Sausage Factory


This was a great event! I stumbled upon it and had a great time I highly recommend stopping by if you are in town. My drawing is the x and y thought bubbles with a whale in a lake and malibu in the background drawn in blue pencil on the right when you come in. I did the one below too to warm-up.

I really wanted to go to Drinkin and Drawin but couldnt make it I'll definitely be there if there is another installment though!

Re: Re: W3C sides with Microsoft


definitely it would cause a mess, though looking at the microsoft documentation at:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/ieupdate/activexchanges.asp

it seems like it could mean javascript freelance work to me. which wouldnt be so bad.
