In late 2011, I was commissioned by one of my collectors George Haddad, aka "Cousin George" to produce a video for one of his tracks on his upcoming album Coming Out. Not wanting to confuse this video with my own musical art videos, I decided to go out, buy a new wig, and try out some of my wardrobe that had not been worn.

I went to the Whitney Museum of Art to partake in one of their latest offerings, Blues For Smoke, a saucy gumbo of Walker, Hammons, Whitten, O'Grady, among many others. The exhibition serves a mostly-brown stew, bubbling over with work tucked into nearly every corner.
