Double Negative – A New Band Project

My son Sage and I are going to be playing in a band called Double Negative at the Intel Variety Show at the Chandler Center for the Arts on Saturday, August 9th, show starts at 7pm. I will be playing drums, believe it or not, and Sage will be on bass. We will be playing the song “Seven Nation Army” by the The White Stripes.

Here is the band bio:

Originally performing solo several years ago, then performing a duet with his daughter last year, Intel interaction designer Ed Clapper is back this year with a four-piece ensemble called “Double Negative”.  Ed has been with Intel for 10 years and will be playing guitar and singing backups in this year’s show.  Aris Clapper will again join her dad this year as lead singer of the new group.  New additions include Ed’s long-time friend, Mark Greenawalt, a multitalented musician, artist and former band-mate.  In somewhat new instrumental territory, Mark will be playing drums in the show.  Rounding out the line-up is Mark’s son, Sage Greenawalt, who has only been playing bass a short few months but is already showing promising talent.  The four enjoy sharing their love of music with family and friends, and they look forward to sharing it with the public at this year’s event.

Update:  The video from this event is now online at

Grand Opening of Fuse Nightclub in Nashville, Tennessee

I just did some bodypainting for the grand opening of Fuse Nightclub in Nashville, Tennessee this past weekend. Kid Rock was the DJ and Kim Kardashian was the host. There were a bunch of celebrities there and I joined in with the paparazzi to take pictures on the red carpet once I was done bodypainting. I have posted the pictures to my website at http://www.futureclassx.com/bodypaint/Promotions/080713-FuseNashville/fuse.htm if you’d like to see them. In the Youtube video clip below you can see Kid Rock, Kim Kardashian, Jeffrey Steele, Danielle Peck, Ty Herndon and of course the painted models.

Here is my first podcast entry to the Green Pages.  This is a short video that I did from a bodypainting photoshoot with model Amiii and photographer Mondo.  The bodypainting was done using Reel Creations airbrushed paints and Brand X liquid latex.  The music in the background is a song called Until the Fire’s Gone and it is my former band Anti-M.  I’m playing the piano on the song.  Enjoy!
