"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:

Sky and Space

First up, I wanted to let you all know that the new episode of the Strong Lady D&D podcast is now available for download and I narrate it! Every monday night I gather (over the magical internet) with a bunch of awesome people to play D&D and our DM has turned that game into a podcast. We didn't start recording our gaming sessions right away, so the first handful of episodes are narrated summaries of our adventures. You can also follow our adventures on twitter. Check it out!

Ok - now for some art. I have two new pieces to share with you, both of which are now available to purchase online. "We Are Made of Star Stuff" is part of Hero Complex Gallery's QUOTES, LINES, & LYRICS show and is inspired by the quote by Carl Sagan. "Sky Cake" is part of Gallery1988's IS THIS THING ON 4 show which celebrates funny people and comedy. My piece features Patton Oswalt and references one of my favorite bits of his standup.

Other random life stuff: 

- Started on my 17th book this year, so I'm definitely on track for a 50-book goal.
- Finished Far Cry 4 and liked it so much I went and got Far Cry 3.
- I have a big 2-person show coming up in May at Gallery in in Lincoln, so follow me on tumblr/instagram/facebook for lots up work-in-progress shots over the next two months.
