The Message Board has proven to be a lot of fun.  I will bring the collection (DA art prints about 12x18) to the next UU Art Guild meeting (March 10th at The UU Bard Hall*).  With luck I will also have the magnets and a cup I ordered.  I was thinking of bringing permanent art materials and asking people to work on them in this state.  I could also sell the prints for $20 (cost) if someone wants to work on them at home and make them their own... $40 if they want to pin it to their wall as is... we'll see.  Lora ChauDavis will be hanging on the walls with two friends as the featured artists.

The collection (in this last phase) is at Message Board Collaborations.  The process is similar for all the work.  Start with Tequila, friends, and a blank dry erase board, take pictures, pick the ones that look good (with the help of LightRoom and Photoshop), take to the UU Art Guild, ask for collaborations and provide the black and white markers, re-scan the results back into Photoshop, combine with the original image and then go to town tweaking things on the computer, upload to DA and print the next stage.

Journal History


rbcd's Profile Picture
Richard B ChauDavis
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Richard ChauDavis (Baer) graduated from the College of Creative Studies, UCSB, in 1979 with a BA in painting and drawing. During college and afterwards Richard took up art photography. Initially doing focused shoots trailing a person through their day, interspersed with studies of odd locations and alleyways.
After moving to San Diego Richard created a ‘Dark Space’ in his garage (along with a darkroom). During this time he showed mostly at San Diego Art Institute. The Dark Space went through several permutations becoming more and more sexual. Erotic would be a misleading term… Along the way were several regional shows at SDAI, a one person show, charity events, etc.
A neighbor introduced Richard to a computer (385 with about 30 megs…) several years ago. Eventually the darkroom was shutdown and the art went digital. Richard caught Joe Flazh!’s interest and was given a one person show at Flazh!Alley in San Pedro (‘Room Service, images from the No-Tell Motel’). Since then, Richard has finished some photo series, paintings, performance pieces. Current work has been shown locally at Ray Street, The Art of Digital Show, UA Art Guild, The Garage, Friends of East County Artist 3rd annual Alley Cat Show, the 14th El Cajon Invitational Art Exhibit, ‘Pajama Party’ at the Garage, Trash at Leftovers which is the kitchen part of Vacancy II; Vacancy 3, The Kitchen; I Caught You Peeking 2 (Garage); The Tainted Milk Project; One Person Show at SDAI titled “Old, Tainted, Trashed and Recycled”. His latest projects in conjunction with Roberta Kuntz have centered around ArtGymSD, in NTC, Larry's Garage, and at SDAI 'Museum of the Living Artist.'
