Leaving on a jet plane...

This Thursday, March 3rd I will be on a plane, headed to the U.K. for my art exhibition at WEEKEND GALLERY in Hastings.

This will be my first showing outside of the U.S. and... so far, I feel very welcome. There was a flattering article, by Richard Morris, featured in the Hastings Observer... and, one of the pieces from the show has already sold, a week before the show even opens.

If you're going to be in the neighborhood, I would love to see you at the opening.

...Sorry if my previous post about this show being in February was confusing to anyone...the details changed a couple of months ago, and I neglected to update the ol' blog...
and, last...but, certainly not least...
T H A N K Y O U ! ! ! to everyone who donated their hard-earned dollar$ to help get me across the pond for this show. If you haven't gotten your print yet, I promise I haven't forgotten you...
(To say "I've been busy lately" would be an epic understatement.)

Portland Upper Playground, and setting the record straight...

Hello again, and welcome to another edition of stuff I post to further clutter the transglobal interwebs...

I'd like to start by inviting everyone in, and around Portland, Oregon to come to the "Boy Girl Boy Girl" group art showcase, featuring Kinoko, Sohaila Adela, Solace, and me... at the Fifty24 gallery inside the Upper Playground store, Downtown ( 23 Northwest 5th Avenue Portland, OR 97209 (503) 548-4835 ). The show opens today, Thursday February 3, with a reception that lasts from 6pm-10pm. (the show will be on display through the end March...). Hope to see you there! (below is the post from the Fifty 24 PDX blog)

“Boy Girl Boy Girl” is a showcase of four very different styles that are all uniquely indigenous to this region. From the colorful characters of Solace to the dainty yet dangerous work of Sohaila Adela, or Ego’s “creepy cuteness” and Kinoko’s iconic illustrations; each artist embraces and represents the culture manifested by the Great Northwest. All artists will be in attendance: Ego and Solace from Seattle, Kinoko and Sohaila from Portland). Refreshments provided courtesy of RedHook .

Next... I'd like to apologize to my fellow artiste, Barth, whom I mentioned in my last post. You may, or may not have noticed that he commented on the post showing our heart-eating zombie girls, side by side. He was offended that he was was being accused of borrowing my concept... and while it may be an uncanny coincedence that our characters and layout are strikingly is, apparently, just that... a coincedence.

So, in the spirit of fairness and fellowship... again, Barth, I apologize, and wish you all the best.
