This is a DVD of four collaborative performances between Mustard-In-Law and acclaimed comic artist Victor Cayro, who just so happens to have a thing about pouring mustard on himself! It was an ambitious project, editing this disc. The laughter squeezed from those who see it leaves them paralyzed in spastic chortles. Eventually, I overcame the potency and was able to weave audience members’ footage onto our own to achieve more perspectives on each glorious drizzle. Bonus menu includes a slideshow of art from Victor’s HAVE SEX exhibit, which is where one of these performances occurred. Cover art and handwriting by the living mustard himself, Victor Cayro. Released by Dubuque label Personal Archives.
Here’s a great review from someone who saw one of these mustard shows… https://www.splicetoday.com/music/ultra-sonic-love-poems
Public Space One turned sixteen and held their annual art auction. This is Mustard-In-Law’s submission. 16 sprawling tracks (3.5 hours) on three clear tapes & an infinite LOOP tape, dedicated to your quest for small ‘a’ art. Compiled by Tyler for our favorite art spot, with original collage cover by Jay.
The Blick Iowa City staff was invited to exhibit at St. Ambrose University, in Davenport, Iowa….

Iowa City’s Public Access Television Station, PATV, asked me to exhibit some work for their monthly event, PATV Underground. My CAT SHOW went up on the first day of the Iowa ArtsFest, and displayed until the end of June.
At the gig, Mustard-In-Law performed in the TV studio, in front of an audience, and live streaming on PATV’s YouTube channel. We played with a green screen behind us, and brought an appropriate video to key in….
Once again, our beloved PublicSpaceOne called on the doers of do to raise funds with an art auction, and Mustard-In-Law dripped up to the plate with a six tape box set.
We provided a listening station and easy access to the contents.
The booklet was six feet long!
Although the physical release went to the highest bidder, you can download the entire 9-hours (!) of audio, along with high-quality beeps of the super-long booklets at this link here: mustard-in-law.bandcamp.com/album/dear-future Any money made from these downloads goes straight to PS1, to keep small a art alive in our town.
Listen & weep……………………………………………
Also, I sold this glistening painting of mine.
The winner now knows everything we know, may they live forever in mustard.
turned this one into my business card
Today I did some simple monoprints. On blue paper, I used only the inking brayer to find the textures I craved. Then I used a thoughtlessly carved linoleum block as the impetus for an exciting pattern.
These were produced by rolling a large tube along a styrene sheet strewn with blobs of paint, then rolling the paint covered tube onto paper. The first two have further embellishments, the rest are unadulterated.
Inktober is an annual daily endurance practice experiment involving ink.
Here are some of the things I made this month.
