September Show Trifecta

  REMEMBER: Friday, August 22 is the last day to use the code  
  BIRTHDAY in my Etsy shop to get 20% of your entire order (of $10 or more)!  

I have new work in three upcoming group shows which all open in the span of a week. Needless to say, this past week and upcoming weekend are a smidge insane. I do not have "getting things done early" skills.

First up is Ltd. Gallery's PRESS START III: TURBO EDITION show opening in Seattle on Friday, August 29 (and I actually get to go to the opening reception since I will be in town for PAX!) This year, their "Press Start" show is focusing on modern classics of video games, which is totally in my wheelhouse. I had a hard time narrowing down a subject since I have so many favorites, but I probably knew all along deep down that it was going to be Bioshock. It's always Bioshock with me. Here are a few work-in-progress shots:

I had to cut the little sister's head off briefly because of a problem with my layer-planning, but she's OK now. 

Opening the following weekend in Los Angeles is JOSS WHEDON x GALLERY1988, which as you may gather from the title, involves art based on the works of Joss Whedon. Here is a little sneak peak at that one:

And opening the following night will be Spoke Art's KUBRICK: AN ART SHOW TRIBUTE TO THE FILMS OF STANLEY KUBRICK in San Francisco. I don't have sneak preview images of this one since it is still in the early stages, but I decided to base mine on Barry Lyndon. Giant hair? Forlorn Ladies? Lacy Dresses? I'm down with all of that.

Back from Canada

It's Monday and I'm back to work after a lovely trip to Canada with my family. Well, physically I'm back at work - by brain is still taking it's sweet time getting caught up. I finally finished reading Outlander, which I loved (plus some steam punk paranormal romances which were fun), did some drawings of bugs, ate too much cheese, and had a much-needed week without deadlines and stress. And now I begin two crazy weeks FULL of deadlines and stress before heading to Seattle for PAX. Huzzah!

I also turned 32 this weekend (yeesh) and to celebrate, I'm having an Etsy shop sale! I re-listed a bunch of my giclee prints and postcard sets this morning, and will be adding some more art and jewelry throughout the day. Use the code BIRTHDAY at checkout to get 20% off your order (of $10 or more), now through Friday.
