About time for an upgrade. ThoughtMarker.net has finally arrived. I've kept the site simple, but it should be more functional and little easier on the eyes thanks in part to the help of WonderRoot's Alex West. Along with the updated site, I plan on updating the content to better explore the art and creativity in Atlanta. I'll still be promoting alternative art events, photographing street art and graffiti, and featuring work by local artists and designers, but I'll be focusing more and more on image driven content. If there is anything you'd like to see happen with the new ThoughtMarker site, leave a comment.

This Saturday, March 20th from 7-9 (preferably before heading to the Dashboard Co-op Launch Party, and after enjoying the Westside Arts Stroll) stop by Emily Amy Gallery for a chance to relax and/or network with members of the emerging arts community and find out what's in store for Gather Atlanta this summer.
Dashboard Co-op is a new online gallery focussing on local, emerging artists. Not only are they kicking off with a big party, but they've already got some of my favorite artists on board including the Paper Twins, Jason Travis, and Baxter Crane, whose fantastic pieces below will be shown at the event.
