Addendum: April 7, 2009
For those of you who are finding my blog by simply googling Psycho Donuts and trying to make a nuisance of yourselves and fan the flames of controversy – please don’t bother posting a comment here. The comment will be deleted. I support Psycho Donuts in their pursuit of happiness and American entrepreneurship and disagree with the reasons behind the controversy.
This site is about my work and creative pursuits – not a discussion place for this controversy. Psycho Donuts have started their own blog in order to address the issue and they will be doing press rounds soon. If you are willing to listen to their point of view and hear what they have to say and – maybe, just maybe – internalize a weeeee little bit of it, you can do so here:

I certainly like to be involved in different types of shows but this one takes the cake – or the ‘donut’ as the case may be. I was contacted recently by the owners of Psycho Donuts in Campbell, CA for an artistic offering to their “nutcase:” a wall unit full of figures created by depraved artists like myself.
But Psycho Donuts’s ‘Nutcase’ is only a fraction of the zany ideas behind “Psycho Donuts.” The entire shop is a creative experience. The walls are filled with pop, outsider and low brow art. I am in the great company of artists Nicolas Caesar, Christine Benjamin, Gus Finkelstein, Jared Konopitski, John Hageman, Christian Cinder, and Temple Tirkeldsen. In addition, they have a flat screen playing weird videos, a padded cell and straight jacket for photo ops, not to mention the foxy nurses ready to take your order for donuts with names like “CocoMarbles,” “Bipolar,” and “C.A.Psycho.” It’s perfect for fans of horror movies, outsider art and…. donuts you won’t find anywhere else!
