July, July

Here is a bit of what I have been up to in July!

First up, here are a few recent pieces, including a Clue-inspired piece for Gallery 1988. 

"Mrs. White"

"Lamp Lighter"


When I haven't been working on art (which is rare), I've been hanging out with the pup enjoying the fact that I have my own back-yard and garden for the first time. Man I love having my own garden. I'm constantly out there looking at cool bugs and getting super giddy over the fact that I grew my own vegetables. I also try to get to movies when I can. Standouts over the past month include TESTAMENT OF YOUTH (absolutely gorgeous and very good but I basically bawled for 2 hours), MR. HOLMES, ANT-MAN, and SPY. 

On the art front, I will have a piece in Spoke Art's upcoming BAD DADS show (this time it's in NYC) and prepping for the Lincoln Arts Festival (September 26 & 27 in Lincoln NE). I will have new prints and cards at the Arts Festival, as well as finally finishing my first batch of NERD LOVE LADIES pieces, which I have been trying to get started on for nearly a year.

"Cutepocalypse" and a Dog with a Muffin

It seems to be a trend on this blog that every post starts out acknowledging how long it's been since the last post. At this point it's almost tradition.

Wow, is it June already?

I had some new work included in two group shows this weekend. The first was for Gallery1988's "No Sad Stuff" Tom Hanks tribute show in Los Angeles. Apparently Hooch was a very popular subject in the show. :)  The original is available here.

"I Brought You a Muffin"

Also opening this weekend was "Cutepocalypse" at Clutter Gallery in Beacon, NY. This was my first time showing at Clutter and it was a lot of fun. Also, check out how cool their wall displays were. The originals are available here. 

"The Quoll and The Key"

"Red Panda Party"

I had an art packed weekend finishing up another group show piece while taking advantage of the fact that I forgot to cancel my trial of HBO's streaming service (so I watched a lot of Last Week Tonight). Here is a little sneak peak at what I was working on.

Also, I realized that I forgot to post all the new pieces from my 2-person show at Gallery 9. Apologies for that. I sort of fell into a productivity black hole after the show. You can see all of the new pieces here and here. I will be ordering a bunch of new giclee prints soon, featuring work from the Gallery 9 show as well as pieces from other recent group shows. I'll keep you posted.

Unusual Creatures

Two weeks from now my show with painter Susan Oltman will be opening at Gallery 9 in Lincoln, NE. So, you could say I'm a bit frazzled and as usual, will be working like crazy right up to the show opening. Here is more info:

The show runs April 29 - May 31, 2015 and the opening reception is Friday, May 1 from 6:30 to 9:30pm at Gallery 9 (124 S. 9th Street, Lincoln NE). Here are a few progress shots:

I foolishly agreed to make new pieces for TWO group shows also opening in May ("I'll get them done early" she said optimistically), so I'm working on those pieces as well. 0_0 More information coming soon.

I am looking forward to binging on Daredevil when this is all over, since it's too gripping to watch while I am working. Instead I have been watching a bunch of commentary-free video game playthroughs, which has worked surprisingly well. So far I've watched Silent Hill: Downpour, Batman: Arkham Origins, Resident Evil Revelations 2, Resident Evil 4, Bulletstorm, and Dying Light. Now I'm working on Bioshock 2. 

And a final bit of news, I recently updated my website:
