While skating near Lake Burley Griffin...

In beautiful Canberra, I happened upon this bird, a crane or a heron of some type, although I did not have my bird-watcher's field guide with me...

And a closer look...

i have a large assortment of photos and paintings that i would like to hang up in my house and i was thinking of hanging them in the same formation you commonly hang yours (with every picture right next to another) and i am wondering how you go about hanging the photos so that the frames lay flush with one another. I have tried and i either end up with small gpas or with crooked frames.

ps, these are outstanding photos. how close were you?

Woah, i got addressed by Ed. I feel so honored. I wrote a letter to Josh Harmony after Good and Evil came out, but he didnt reply.
I hope you collected some awesome Australian material. I'd love to see some Aussie art by you. I'm so patriotic.

Dear Nathan,

As you can see, the site is getting ruined by bungholes who are posting as impostors...

I'm sure soon it will get so bad that I will lose interest in even looking on here. You can thank those assholes.

I will always edit off anyone who is posting as "ed" who is not me.

So if the comment stays, you know it is me. Because only I have the power to edit the fake ones off.

(and as you can see, those fake ones are gone...)

Josh may have seen your letter, but was too busy to write back. Write again! or send him e-mails!

And to "icantadd"

I use a lot of measuring to get the photos up. You need a big assortment to start with. They can't be all the same size. Once you get one up, you have to measure from the bottom and sides to the exact spot the nail on the other one needs to go. It takes some time...

the real:

Hey ed,

this is off topic from the original bird you just posted, but i was interested in if you ever let galleries sell your art? cause whenever i see your exhibition pictures, i always notice alot of older work always showing , which i'm thinking you want to have the entire collection of your work every time you exhibit. But i'm still interested if people can buy your artwork? i wish i could have an original templeton painting. hahah except i hav e no money. but yes. that's my question. thank you.

Dear, "i remember me"

Each show is different, and there is always new work.

For instance. If I do a show in LA, then another show in LA a year later, it would be ALL new work. Maybe a few old ones.

But when I do a show in a new city, then the work that doesn't sell from the last show, gets shipped, along with new work.

The Beautiful Losers show IS all the same work. That is a traveling exhibition, and is the same stuff each time, just hung in a different order each time.

So basically, it is an ever-evolving thing.

Thanks Ed. You're the best. Im going to send him another letter because he is my hero. You are too, but we are already talking. Have an awesome day.

Ed, I'm a huge fan of your art work. I just wondered where you got the inspiration from to create all of the characters we now see all over Toy Machine products.
