in search of a rare Tiki Toki bird. He was stricken with
the rare and deadly tsi-tsi virus that is found in the
Tsi-Tsi fly. His death was painful and possibly one of
the worst ways a person could die. His internal organs
liquefied and he drowned in his own bodily fluids.
A 1 page article in Juxtapoz Magazine on Mr. Walker
will be appearing soon. This might be the last thing
we shall ever see of him. Barring a group show at
Mr. Seiben's Okay Mountain.
Porous will live in all of us as long as we draw
boobs or penises roasting marsh mellows and splatter
paint with paint pens. His legacy will go on as
long as we continue it. In memorium I will be getting
a slice of cake with Porous birth and death dates
below it. I suggest you do the same.
Please let people know that this God among mortals
has passed through the veil to the other side.
He must be remembered for the artist he was and
by those who admired and loved his work.
Porous leaves behind his wife Cari, daughter Cedella
and brother Jimmy DeMarcellis.
Mr. Walker's friend, Agent, Manager and personal photographer."

heard rumblings from some jerk in england
that i need to update the 06 section. he's right but
i've been busy doing work for fecal face dot com
and slap, so back off limey!
in keeping with this weeks theme or redesign, the stereo sound agency
updated their site. i'm a fan of this incarnation.
great work wes.
to continue the new site goodness goldchain aka sean ratliff
has redesigned his site with the help of haveboard
aka 93 aka party guy.
on the bad news front, John Trippe of fecal face got 14 stitches in his head.
speaking of porous walker he has just updated his "portfolio" site.
take a look and see what goodness he's been up to. or, if you aren't
a fan of his work - what shit he's crapped out.
porous walker is in st. louis for a week doing a mural project
with some graffitti people. he's been told not to
do any 3d intstalations on the wall.
something makes me think he's going to put lifesize doors on it.
do you remember when you first remembered to remember something?
andrew pommier is a canadian cat that draws some great stuff.
he's done work for toy machine, 4 star and momentum wheels
to name just a few. take a gander at his website and get stoked.

all of my contractual duties and take care of any problems, should

including a sequential of jeremy fish painting at the
hotel des arts.
lastly, a photo project of sorts with porous walker
and bob k. is in the works.
more on that later.
two news posting in one week? something must be up.
you'd be right to say that. a new section has been
added, the '06. or as they said it last turn of the
century, "aught six." wonder if that'll become new
again in the nation's lexicon?
article is up on the SLAP site. thanks to dick wray for the
text and cian brown for the extra photos. more things are
in the works. i don't want to jinx them, so i won't mention any more.

thanks for coming by.
a little late in the news department but joe brook
has a portfolio site up.

guess the site was down for a day. not too sure what happened,
but i'm guessing that it was a glitch.
in other news, i forgot to mention that i have photos permanently
installed at the hotel des arts. next time you are in s.f.
rent chris pastras' room at the hotel and take a look in the
r.i.p. trevor prescott
