17 December "fascinating":between the voice and the echo

8 December I'm not sure how long the link has been up (looks like a couple of weeks) but David Byrne's website is linking to my Flickr stream where I have some photos of the chalked outlines of his recent New York City bike racks. While I wanted to chalk them all, only a few have good shadows. The bike racks are great, definitely worth checking out.

8 December Arkyard made a short film tour of David Byrne's bike racks shortly after I outlined a few of them at the end of August. My outlines made it into their film.

28 November Sarah Morgan over at BuzzFeed nailed a strong influence in my work.

28 November They're reading about me in Japan. I'm not sure if this is a comparison to Invader but if it is, I am flattered. Decide for yourself: Weekly Teinou Bee Woman.

25 NovemberThanks to Jane at inspirations splendides for her post.

25 November Thanks to Reevo at Ektopia for his post about my Chalk series. Believe it or not, Reevo is the first blogger to consider the photographs as the work, not the chalk:

"I know this has been done before and that there are a few great examples on the internet but what sets Neff's pieces above the others, in my opinion, is that the finished photo seems to be the art and not the actual piece that's been photographed."


19 November They posted about the Chalk series over at Blogilvy. Check out their header graphic/logo. Fantastic!

19 November Thanks to Christopher Boone for his thoughts at El Ultimo que Cierre lo Puerta (The Last to Close the Door).
