The following paintings were lost or stolen last year. They were last seen at the 100 Euros Show in Germany, curated by Antonio de Luca. 6 months after the show, I wrote to Antonio asking him to return my unsold pieces. He said none of them sold and he would ship them back to me immediately. I never received them. When I contacted Antonio he did not offer any tracking info, mailing receipt or insurance for the shipment of the artwork. It may have been a legitimate loss in the mail, but since I have received no help in finding the artwork, no proof that the artwork was returned to me, no offer of compensation (through insurance or otherwise), and since three of the pieces are still available for sale through his website, I'm a bit suspicious.

He is organizing another 100 Euros Show in Amsterdam now. I will not be submitting again, and I AM URGING ALL OTHER ARTISTS TO BEWARE!

If you see any of these 5 paintings for sale anywhere, please alert me immediately. I am still the rightful owner and anyone who has them is in possession of stolen artwork.

All are 9 x 12", ink, watercolor and gouache on paper. They are signed on the back by Tom Neely and dated 2009.

I can't tell you how much it bothers me to not know what happened to this artwork. It is very upsetting to think they are lost forever.

As further warning to artists out there... be sure whoever you send your artwork to is legit. I was so excited to be in a show in Germany, that I blindly trusted that everything would be okay. Hard lesson learned.

UPDATE: They have been removed from his website, and he assures me that they are not in his possession. So, I'm left to accept that they were lost in the mail. Still- no tracking, no insurance, no proof of shipping, no offer of compensation = no professionalism - Do not trust this person with your artwork.

Last Minute Addition: Henry & Glenn Xmas cartoon at Heavy Metal Film Festival

The Henry & Glenn X-mas Cartoon will be playing at the Heavy Metal Film Festival today!

It will be playing before a new documentary Blood, Sweat and Vinyl: DIY in the 21st Century. Made over the course of 5 years by film-maker Kenneth Thomas, this film focuses on three important, independent record labels and the artists behind them: Hydra Head Records, Neurot Records and Constellation Records. I've seen parts of the film (I'm actually in it briefly) and it looks to be an interesting portrait of the underground music scene and how unconventional artists survive outside of the mainstream music industry.

Please come out and see:

Blood, Sweat + Vinyl: DIY in the 21st Century (w/bonus Henry & Glenn Xmas Special)
Sunday, April 3rd at 2:30 pm
at The Downtown Independent Theater
