Please Advise


I've finished another painting. It feels good to paint every night and be as productive as I have in the past 3 weeks or so. I'd of course love to multiply my production by about 3, but I'll take what I can get and run with this for the length of its course.

Also, I'm coming along on the vinyl toy front as well. Will post some progress photos in the next day or so.

Push & Shove

Just finished this last night although after looking at it today, I may make a few touch ups. I also need to varnish this joker and build out a simple strip frame. Trying to work faster but it's tough. I suppose it comes with time.

Art Whino Opening and Overall Update

The opening at Art Whino was this past Friday night and was heaps of fun. I met a lot of very cool people including Rick Reese who was awesome to talk to and has some incredible work up. Some of the opening photos are here. Thanks to everyone who came out.



Here's me looking like a wide-eyed moron. Whatever. It was a great night and I was thrilled to be a part of it!



In addition, I am going to try to update this blog more often. I'll be honest, this show at Art Whino was a pretty big deal for me and I'm realizing the importance and power of self promotion. So, I'm going to be much more active and will try to post updates as they occur.

Speaking of which, while at this show, I landed another show in Georgetown in December. It's a vinyl toy show and they'll all be auctioned off on eBay for some charitable cause. I got my figure Friday and will take photos of the process along the way. I should also have more info on this show very soon so stay tuned.
