unless you’re shopping for SK art, that is…
For those of you who missed it, the SKSK store located at 85 Wythe St. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is sadly NO MORE. Happily,
you can still get your brightly painted, printed and jigsawed artifacts of Steve’s ongoing journey toward the end of paint and wafer board at the NEW LOCATION, 93 Guernsey St in Greenpoint. It’s just a few blocks away from the old place. The store is open for business on Sundays from 2 pm to 6 pm or by appointment. Please direct further curiousity to this well-crafted, educational page at the mother site, and please stop by to buy buy buy and buy some more. Get ’em quick, before the market crashes, Obama/Clinton declare martial law and we’re using Steve’s work as Road Warrior style armor.
In other time-soaked jams, you may have missed Steve’s starring role in the music video for 80’s Aussie mopers the Triffids’ 80’s mopefest (with truly uplifting chorus) “Save What You Can” from their 1987 album “Calenture.” Directed by Braden King and released in conjunction with Domino Records’ reissue programme of the this under-appreciated band’s albums, the video features footage of SK painting a Scandanavian lady, or rather, her portrait. Enjoy…
Here’re a couple of bonus 90’s throwback’s featuring SK’s inimitable set designs:

This one’s just for fun (while I’m posting videos):
ODDS and ENDS:
Here’s a site featuring some pre-2000 shots of Steve in the studio as well as some good photos of old paintings. All else is mysterious regarding this primo google find. All queries will be recieve the same answer: “Wikipedia. Panacea.”
Don’t tune us out, there’s an epic interview in the pipeline for this week, when I get a minute to spruce it up.
