"A Muse Among Stars" Detail

I just realized I had posted this previously. But instead of making you search for it here it is again. I'll post another soon. Busy wrapping up my last piece for the "Go East" Show in NY and what I thought would take a few days to finish up is obviously going into overtime. But I think it'll be worth it. Thanks Janet!

"A Peaceful Rest" detail

I'm currently busy finishing up work for the "Go East" show in NY with LeBasse Projects Gallery. In the meantime I thought I'd post up a decent detail from my previous show "Daughters of Our Nature" featured at Roq La Rue. I'll post more details from that show soon.

Baby Tattooville 09

This looks like a ton of fun and rather intimidating as well. Great coverage by Arrested Motion here

Columbus College of Art & Design

I'll be teaching "Illustration Workshop" this coming Spring at CCAD with Thom Glick. I visit as a guest often enough to talk to the students but this is my first teaching gig. Thom will be doing his thing for the first half of the semester and I'll take over the second. I'm basically going to go over my process and sprinkle what I know about the biz in here and there. Hope to have some serious, motivated students.

New York Show ...

As much as I hate to admit it. I've really been struggling with this particular painting for the past several days. Last night I finally had a break through. It's really helping me to stay focused and motivated. Although, there's much more work to be done. These newer pieces are for my upcoming show in New York Nov 6th-8th. I'm aiming to have all the work done by mid Oct...yikes.
