Monster Monday: Carnival Cotton Candy

I missed last week.  Oops!  Been kinda busy over here, but I hope to make up for the absence today.  I'm going to try and double up on the monsters this Monday!  Little Frankie is done and I'll have something new for you later this evening.  So, what treat does Frankie love?????  Cotton candy!  He usually enjoys it when he visits the carnival, but I'd also like to think he snacks on it while catching up on the new season of American Horror Story.  Happy Monday!

Mission Completed: The Ladies

Finished up a pretty sweet project recently.  I was asked to come up with illustrations of some pretty rockin' ladies for use on a friend's site.  A link will be up shortly.  In the mean time, here's a peek of the finished pieces.

Feline Friday: Progress

I'm still hard at work painting the night away in preparation for the upcoming show, Metazoa.  Below is an update of the painting based on the sketch I posted last week.  The background is mostly completed, but the colors on the cat are just blocked in.  I've still got a lot of work to do on this one.  And if you are asking yourself what the heck is going on in this piece, you'll have to wait til the show opening to get an explanation.  Trust me, though, it makes sense. 

And don't forget about Craft Menagerie happening tomorrow! Happy Friday!

Feline Friday: Mask?

What's going on here?  Just a rough sketch of things to come.


A lot has been in the mix lately and today I'd like to share some of the things I've been up to.

First up, I recently completed work on an amazing project, "The Fox and the Fireflies."  It is a storybook site thought up and put together by my talented friend, Alexis.  She is both the writer of the story and designer of the site.  My input for the project was the illustrations.  This is one of my favorite projects that I have been a part of.  Alexis wrote a beautiful story and made my illustrations come to life!  You can check out the final product at foxandfireflies.com.

Second!  Next weekend is Bockfest here in Cincinnati and there is a wonderful craft event that coincides with the celebration.  Craft Menagerie is in it's 3rd year and I'm proud to be a part it! 
I will have a few prints from the Fox and the Fireflies project available at my booth. Stop by Arnold's Bar and Grill on Saturday, March 8, 11-4 to check out the amazing the artists and stay for an amazing burger and a beer!  It's sure to be a grand time!

And, finally, I am currently preparing for a show coming up in April.  "Metazoa" will be a collection of works yours truly, Zach Kestermann and Ryan Young.  The opening reception will be on Friday, April 4 from 6-10pm at Popp=d Art in Cincinnati.  I'm getting excited about the work being done for it.  Mark your calendars and hope to see you there!
