Dylan wears many masks…it forms the essence of his craft…as he grows as an artist, he dons another mask to reveal the new dimension of his personality…so in this genre I am using the television as a tool because it aides me in compositon, shading, lighting, f and a method to perceive the subject; it forms a method of observatons, whereas otherartists prefer to use live models, I am comfortable with the television set because I believe this more faithful representation of subjects in this over saturated image world….
Jeffre Dene is an artist with an abundant curioisity with a gigantic appetite for existence. The world that he existed in floods his art. This embrace of his existence is reflected strenuously in his art.
There is nothing like being present in the moment and letting the paint flow…images emerge from the vortex of my being and I become the messenger of their expression…

The Knitters are a Los Angeles-based band who play country, rockabilly and folk music. At the time of their formation they were pioneers of country punk, cowpunk or folk punk, the genre which gradually evolved into alternative country. The Knitters’ name is a play on the name of the folk group The Weavers.
The Knitters’ debut album Poor Little Critter on the Road was released in 1985. It included mainly traditional and cover songs, together with some X songs performed in an acoustic style. The album drew on blues, folk, country and rockabilly influences. In 1999, the label Bloodshot Records released a track-by-track tribute to the album entitled Poor Little Knitter on the Road.
After the debut album’s release, all the group members continued to work with their primary bands. Dave Alvin also later pursued a solo career.
Twenty years later, in 2005, the group released their second and ironically-titled album, The Modern Sounds of the Knitters. John Doe has been quoted  as saying “The Knitters, like their music, don’t do anything hasty. Since our last record’s been out for a while and it did pretty good, we figured it was just about time to put out another.” The Modern Sounds of the Knitters has been well-received by critics
