COLBY DOES HAWAII: WHERE ARE YOU SUPERFAN?


Shortly before both Instagram and Facebook kicked me to the curb, I was communicating with a fan about the prospect of a Colby Does Hawaii video.  If that's you, please hit me up at bigshoediaries@gmail.com because I don't have access to those messages anymore and can't even
look you up (frustrating!!!).

FAKE COLBYS (AKA I'M NOT BEGGING YOU TO WATCH STREAMING VIDEO ON GRINDR)


It's been brought to my attention that there are some fake profiles on certain online dating apps (ie. Grindr, Scruff) claiming to be me and asking for $$ to join a streaming site.  If you've seen the below profile, in Indiana or other parts of the country (I think the person is following my actual feeds - Twitter: @ColbyKeller Instagram: @kolbyceller Facebook: Colby Keller), then it is fake.  The only thing I'm using these hook up apps to find is models for the project in the towns I'm visiting.  The Colby Does America videos, which are currently close to being halfway filmed as the 25 number is close at hand, will eventually be hosted at www.colbydoesamerica.com.


I'm sorry if you've been targeted by a fake Colby.  I wish we could create a safe word like the one I used to have with my mom in case she sent someone else to pick me up after school.  Sadly, this perpetrator would probably figure that one out.  All I can say is "imitation is the highest form of flattery. . . " - oh and, whoever you are, you are committing a felony and the authorities have been notified.

#TBT @MICA_NEWS COLBY ART FROM GRAD SCHOOL DAYS AT MARYLAND INSTITUTE COLLEGE OF ART

Folks have asked for years about my earlier art work. As evidenced by #piecesofeight and #everythingbutlenin, most people have realized I'm no fan of nostalgia and therefore it's rare that something I've made finds its way back to INSERT VERB HERE me in the present.  Fortunately for those of you that like a little ego-driven lesson in recent American art school history, I came across some photos in an old email account this morning of work I completed (and then destroyed) as a grad student in the Mount Royal program at MICA.  I exhibited what's here in my final group show, A Spectacle and Nothing Strange, a show name suggested by Karl Marxxx and adopted by some of my awesome classmates who I miss dearly(bonus points for anyone who gets this Baltimore literary reference of the show title). 

Colby with Pom-Pom Bullet, yarn, wire. Hunter, felt, glue.

I was dissatisfied by the artist-as-brand direction I'd been pushed in by Frances Barth at Mount Royal(ironic now, I know!), and I threw out everything I'd made and sat in my bare white walled box with a few folding chairs as the program director and Grad School director, as well as the visiting artist faculty, entered for my final critique. My statement was heard loud and clear.  My favorite visiting artist began to cry while the Director of the Graduate School, Leslie King-Hammond yelled at me for pulling what she termed "a ridiculous art stunt."  But for me, my art has always been about the process rather than the product. The best moments in life are when life is actually happening.  Once you reach the money shot, it's all over and time to clean up the mess.

A study for Hunter, felt, glue. A portion of this work was begrudgingly preserved by Karl Marxxx.
