A mosaic of a nude from painting I rendered from a photograph I took.
My work Lego Nude – which is, well, a nude rendered in Legos – won the People’s Choice Award at the Del Mar Fair. But, it didn’t even win an honorable mention with the judges.
So I’m going to interpret that result as demonstrating that I am too cutting edge for the establish hegemony, and chalk this up as further validation of my status as the preeminent post-post-modern art genius.
have had another work of art from my wallpaper series on display of a pigeon on a coffee table at Caffe Trieste that I call “Trieste Regular.”
will be was on display at the 2011 Del Mar Fair now through the end of the fair on July 4th.
Pointing out that yes, I did in fact get the People's Choice Award on the 3rd day of the show.
Showing off my painting at the Fair.
This is a sketch I did on my iPhone sitting at Brainwash Cafe in the SoMA district of San Francisco one fine day before I skipped town.
I’m having an art show in Oakland, and another one in Hillcrest, San Diego coming up in September. Stay tuned for details.
I know said I was putting my art career on haitus as I go back to school (if anyone was listening) but I keep getting pulled back in. Please buy all my art so I can stop all this nonsense!

I got some press about my show this Tuesday:
“Eclectic artists Torrey Nommesen and Scott Blake are moving in for a one-night-only show, Nommesen displaying his Lego mosaics and Blake featuring his Bar Code installation. The show runs from 5 to 10 p.m., so you can hit ’em before the library reading, if you prefer. Rather than attempt a feeble description of what to expect, go to Nommesen’s blog and check it out for yourself. You can also find out about Nommesen’s other upcoming North Beach appearances. This guy’s all over the map artistically, so each show is different from the last.”
