Medicinally speaking, Hilary Clinton doesn’t get it yet

While Mt. Munchie Chris Christie thinks medical marijuana is “a front for legalization.” More like an open door.

but Florida kinda medically legalized it

In The Studio of Buff Monster

 
How long have you been in this studio?

Only about a month. It always takes much longer than imagine to set up a work space, but it’s good. I’ve been making work in here for a little while now.
 
Why did you pick the location?

My buddies Sucklord and Lamour Supreme had a space nearby and they were going to move into this building, so I started checking out the units in here. All these studio spaces are brand new; when I first came in here, these walls weren’t even up.
 
How does it rank in comparison to your previous studios?

I’ve been working in Brooklyn, and it was great, but I just needed more space. My painting studio in LA was bigger, but this spot is way better. I like my studio space to be inconvenient for visitors and very low-key, so now being in the middle of everything is something new for me.
 
What’s your favorite attribute of the space?

Having two big windows right on Bowery is awesome.
 
How often are you in here?

A Lot! I’m usually here for a few long full days in a row, then I’ll head back to my office in Brooklyn to handle all the other non-art-making things I gotta do. Then I’m back here for another few days in a row.
 
Can you explain the full capabilities of the studio? What kind of things do you make?

I really want to get the space to a point where I can make much bigger paintings than I’ve been able to do recently. But I’m very busy getting the second series of The Melty Misfits together. All those paintings are small. I’m also set up to do a bunch of resin casting. And besides all that, I have a nice gallery/showroom space in the front, which is perfect for client meetings and product releases.

 
Do you have a refrigerator? If so, what’s in it?

I got a small fridge. It’s got a few things in it, but it’s mostly full of Perrier.
 
What kind of sound system do you have?

I just a tiny boombox. It’s so important for me to have heavy metal blasting when I’m working, but I’ve never had a great sound system. I also listen to the Adam Carolla podcast for hours and hours when I’m doing really tedious work, and this thing works for that too!
 
Have you ever slept here?

My lovely girlfriend lives a 3-minute-walk away, so there’s no need to sleep here!
 
 
Buff Monster will be opening up his studio (THE MELTY MANOR: 144 Bowery, 3rd Floor) from noon to 4pm this Saturday, June 21st for a print release. He can be followed @buffmonster on twitter and instagram, and /buffmonster on facebook.
