November stuff!

Ah, November. Time to pack up the halloween decorations, air out the winter coat, and attend some awesome craft fairs!



Friday, November 17 / 5:30-9:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 18 / 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Unitarian Church of Lincoln, Lincoln NE


I will be selling all of my small wares at the Handmade Harvest craft fair - prints, cards, jewelry, art books, and maybe some very small art (we'll see what fits on the table). This will be a fun event and a great way to get a head start on holiday shopping. 



November 24, 2017
Capital Square Atrium, Des Moines IA

My first out-of-state craft/art fair! I will be taking my show on the road for this year's Market Day Black Friday sale in Des Moines! The people who run this event are incredibly rad and I'm so excited to be participating.


ART BOOK & ETSY UPDATE

New giclee prints featuring more of my plant/animal hybrids (plantimals?) are now available in my etsy shop, along with my brand new art book featuring recent original and pop-culture collages and sketches from 2016-2017.

It's Nearly Fall!

The leaves are juuuuuuust starting to change. There are spiders friggin' everywhere. I can actually go outside without melting. It's almost fall! And with that comes a whole bunch of events and art shows. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

LINCOLN ARTS FESTIVAL

September 30 & October 1, 2017

Southpoint Pavilions, Lincoln NE


I'm back at the Lincoln Arts Festival! In addition to new prints, cards, and jewelry, I will also have brand new ART BOOKS! I'm so excited about these books and hope you like them too. Plus, I will have lots of original work available, including a bunch of Nerd Love collages. Lets hope for some lovely fall weather and less rain than last year.

GHOST STORIES (Small Group Show)

October 4-30, 2017


Gallery 9, Lincoln NE
Opening reception: 
Friday, October 6 (6:30-9:00 p.m.)


Immediately following the festival, I will be showing a collection of new work at Gallery 9 along with Vonni Sparks and Carol DeVall. It's going to be a really fun, colorful show - please come and check it out!

EXTRA LIFE CHARITY GAMING MARATHON
November 4, 2017
I wasn't able to participate in Extra Life last year because I foolishly signed up for back-to-back art shows in November and December. Luckily things worked out a lot better this year. Extra Life is a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise awareness and money for children's hospitals across the country. I always support PennState Children's Hospital, who provided care for my cousin when he was undergoing treatment for Leukemia. Please follow the link if you would like to make a donation! If I can get it figured out, I'm going to try to stream my games throughout the day so you can tune in and watch me get progressively worse as I get sleepy. Maybe some Destiny 2? Or Uncharted: Lost Legacy? Or Horizon Zero Dawn? You guys, I have so many games that I need to get caught up on.

HANDMADE HARVEST

November 17 & 18, 2017

Unitarian Church of Lincoln, Lincoln NE

I will be selling all of my small wares at the Handmade Harvest craft fair - prints, cards, jewelry, art books, and maybe some very small art (we'll see what fits on the table). This will be a fun event and a great way to get a head start on holiday shopping.

MARKET DAY BLACK FRIDAY

November 24, 2017

Capital Square Atrium, Des Moines IA

My first out-of-state craft/art fair! I will be taking my show on the road for this year's Market Day Black Friday sale in Des Moines! The people who run this event are incredibly rad and I'm so excited to be participating.  

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

So that's the schedule so far! Because of all of these events, there will be a few times in the next couple of months where my Etsy shop will be closed. But when it's open, you will be able to get the new prints and art books there. Plus, I will be having a special Cyber Monday shop sale, so stay tuned for details. And finally, here are a few new Nerd Love pieces, because text-only posts always feel so barren and lonely.

Poor Neglected Blog

Heh, yeah. So I haven't updated in over 6 months. Good grief.

I'm still alive and still making art when I can manage to take a break from my three simultaneous, ongoing playthroughs of Dragon Age: Inquisition (gotta try every romance option, right?). Seriously though, I HAVE been working on all sorts of projects this year.


POP CULTURE


Here are some of the pop-culture related pieces I have done for group shows so far this year, including Archie, Howl's Moving Castle, Twin Peaks, and the Good Dogs twitter meme. I've also been making progress on my Nerd Love alphabet series, some of which are still available in my Etsy shop. Man I wish blogspot had better photo-posting capabilities. *long sigh*

 




 


OTHER ARTS

I've also made a number of original pieces for shows at Gallery 9 and The Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center. 






LATER IN 2017

At the very end of September I will once again have a booth at the Lincoln Arts Festival (Sept 30 & Oct 1) and then in October I will have a small group show at Gallery 9. Plus, I have lots more nerdy collages in the works and a number of group shows on the horizon. Ok, time to get back to work (or Dragon Age...).
