So I suppose I missed the whole "Black Friday/Cyber Monday" sale avalanche, but I thought it would be good to do a sale on the pieces I have available on my Etsy shop! The prices have been reduced quite a lot, so check them out and see if anything piques your interest!
Come to WWA Gallery in Culver City tonight to see the opening of their annual (3rd? not sure) "HORRORWOOD" show, featuring art based or inspired by classic horror films. My piece, "Murder" is based on Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. I'll be there tonight, hope to see you! There is a ton of lovely work by a bunch of great artists, check it out HERE!
I just participated in this fun show put on by La Luz de Jesus Gallery, the "Beer is Art" coaster show, which is part of the Los Angeles Beer Week festivities. Every artist in the show used their custom beer coasters in our pieces. Here's what I made, they are for sale in the gallery or online Here!
soo now that my show is over at La Luz de Jesus (you can still view the image gallery under "2013" HERE
- there are some pieces left over!) I have been doing lots of sketching
and other random projects that I hadn't had time for before now. Here's
Sketchbook pages, the two on the right are from my recent trip to northern California -
my family has a little flock of parrots, which were fun to draw, and, of course, airport people.
more random sketches from here and there
This afternoon I went for a short look at the horses at the LA Equestrian Center -
they were all giant and lovely and shiny
This little sketch page was featured over on The Scribble Project, which you can see HERE! So fun and random. This was done at the height of Pocket's paintbrush-stealing spree, which was driving me insane. Thanks to Lisa for inviting me to sketch for her!
and, finally, some more silk scarf dyeing! I love doing this. I should have them up for sale in a while, I have more colors to add and more styles to try.
and, because they are fun, here's a little animated gif of one of the scarves in the wind!
So, the piece I just showed in the last post has been accepted to La Luz de Jesus' 27th annual group show, Laluzapalooza! This show is really fantastic to be a part of, there are about 125 artists that get selected out of 5,000, and I get to be one of them!
On a completely different note, here is a poster I made for my dear friend Margaret's theatre company, Baby Crow Productions. This was a fun break from what I've been doing lately. As well as the lovely ladies I drew, I also drew out all the words for the poster, which I don't get to do often, but really enjoy. You can help them out by donating to their IndieGoGo program, here, which will help get their show off the ground!
