is the documentary chronicling my friend Jason Crigler's recovery from a brain injury, will air Tuesday, July 7 at 10 PM EST. It will be shown on PBS, as part of their POV series. In the New York City area, the POV show is on channel 13.

Jason was the first person I met after my injury who had any idea what I was going through. He had an AVM which is a similar vascular abnormality but with much larger vessels hence a huge bleed. He is an amazing person and just being around him made me feel less alone in the world. He is also really funny and his delivery is so deadpan, you don't expect it. We had dinner at Henry's and when the waitress came over and asked if we had any questions about the menu, Jason said, "Yes, I have a question. Do you serve food here?"

Certain states will show it at different times. KCET Los Angeles and WHYY Philadelphia - Thursday, July 9 at 8:30 PM. WGBH Boston - Sunday, July 12 at 9 PM. To enter your zip code and find out when it will air in your area, go to http://www.pbs.org/pov/tvschedule/

He was interviewed on the CBS News

Below is a mixed media piece called
The Bleed I did in the summer of 2007 in a workshop with Roberto Juarez.

Love the art, missed the show since I didn't read this until today. Maybe it'll be shown again. Off to work and on such a beautiful day!! There should be laws against such things. :)
