Back from Bmore

I'm back from Baltimore now and getting back into work mode this week. I have my work cut out for me. During my trip, I even managed to get some art done (I didn't want to feel like a total slacker :)

There's a lot happening in the next few weeks, so I will keep you all tuned in for that.

Until then.....happy drawing :)

"Force Fields" show opens soon!

Mark your calendars people! This show opens in two days in Santa Monica! One night only!

My piece for the show:
By the way, you can buy this work as a beautiful print HERE!

Boxed up and ready to go

Hey all,

So I went to the UPS store today (a place I am very familiar with at this point) and mailed the work I created for the Rituals group show this summer in NY. I'm sending it off a little bit early because I will be taking a little trip this week and don't want to have to rush deliver it when I get back. I think the pieces look good in the frames. I'm curious how it will all be displayed. I have an idea in my head, but I know the gallery might have ideas of their own. Either way, I'm excited. Above is a teaser pic of the works for the show. And below is a rather boring picture of the box all taped up.
ready to go!

I really have my work cut out for me this summer in terms of projects. No lack of things to do here. Looking forward to a little break this coming week and some fun and relaxation :)

more to come......stay tuned.....

Just a couple reminders today.

2.) "Force Fields" is coming up! It's an art show I am involved in to help raise money to fight malaria in Africa. It will be for one night only, so if you live in Santa Monica, check it out! Here is some more info:
I am currently trying to finish up some personal commissions. They've been pretty challenging because they are not the type of thing I usually do, and haven't exactly been fun, but I am on schedule. I'll post pictures next month.

Also, I received Santiago's sketchbook. We are collaborating by trading books. Check out his awesome work here if you have a chance!

I will be taking some time off soon and flying to MD for a little rest and relaxation. I'm going to take the sketchbook with me and hopefully do some drawing in it.

that's all for now folks :)

Sneak Peek of "Reawakening of the Long-Departed"

I just remembered that I wanted to post this picture of one of the drawings I completed recently for the show at Causey Contemporary (this July).

Here is the picture I previously posted of it while it was in the pencil stage.

Here's a detail shot of the completed section.

Big to small

The past few days have been spent working on this new drawing for a show in July. It was great working on this small piece after spending so much time working on some large, detailed drawings. I started it Thursday evening and finished it Friday evening. I also painted this frame the other day. I had a bit of a hard time deciding what color to go with, so I actually painted it a few times and then varnished it.

I took a trip to the post office the other day to mail my sketchbook off for a sketchbook collaboration I'm doing with Santiago Uceda. This is the first round of the trade, so I look forward to seeing what he can do with my random scribblings, and I can't wait to receive his sketchbook.

Under the Gun

Hey everyone,

just wanted to tell you all about a small show I am in coming up very soon. It's called "Under the Gun" and it's happening at Articulated Gallery on June 4th in San Francisco. As you may have guessed from the title, it's a bit of a last minute show, but don't let that deter you from seeing it! I have 2 small pieces in it (they're oldies but goodies).

they can be purchased HERE!
