Put a Bow on It

sounds like: "Settle Down" Kimbra

I have a small piece for a small price at this holiday show at the Kraine Gallery Bar in NYC and the show is opening this evening! Art is a wonderful gift, so if you like it put a bow on it!


Stars and Skulls!

sounds like: "No Light, No Light" Florence + The Machine

This past weekend was a small whirlwind of craft shows. Yesterday we we're out in Western Massachusetts at the Stars and Skulls Crafty Craft Fair. This was our third year at the Stars and Skulls and our busiest and funnest yet! We shared some cube-age with our dear friend Rachel and her amigarumi delights (including a crocheted yellow submarine and a nice variety of catnip sushi) and were sandwiched between long time friend Karen Ducey's Moon and Sundries and Colin Tedford of Trees and Hills, a fabulous comic collective I belonged to when I lived in the wilds of the west. I drew some portraits, saw lots of good friends and met some awesome new people! Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table!


My Shades of Grey

We had a great time at the My Shades of Grey Craft Benefit this evening! I drew a few portraits , met a lot of great people and had some delicious food. What could be better than drawing portraits, talking about horror movies and drinking Heinekens? Not much. I also drew a new record for myself: a nine person portrait of all the employees of A Touch of Color hair salon in Lynn. It is pretty hard to fit 9 lovely ladies on one page. *0*

This kid's name was Brian and he had me draw him with his mum who he was selling jewelry with at the show too. Nerds of a feather flocked together - it only takes a Cenobaby to start up a two hour conversation about movies. :)

Tomorrow we'll be back in WMass at the Stars and Skulls Crafty Craft Fair! W00T!

SMFA Art Annual

I dropped off 5 pieces of work to my alma mater, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, last weekend. Starting on December 8th you can purchase framed Harajuku No. 5, Red Riding Siesta, Artichoke, Hair and one of my Dr. Sketchy's Burlesque drawings of the lovely Porcelain Dalya at the Annual Art Sale.

SMFA sent along this nice little press release about the sale...
"This isn't an open house, or a tour. It's an art sale, and it's amazing. Now in its 31st year, the Museum School Art Sale is the largest art sale in New England, and features work in all disciplines from more than 400 SMFA-affiliated artists—students, alumni, faculty, staff and more. If you really want to see the incredible caliber of art that comes out of this school, we invite you to attend. This is an incredible opportunity to see what we produce; to see what we're all about.

Our opening reception is Thursday, December 8, from 5–8 pm. With performance art and music by DJ Holtie, you can browse the galleries, adorned with artwork, and mingle with the artists themselves and the collectors who attend every year. The sale is open from December 8–11, 10 am–8 pm daily. It's a great opportunity—we'd love to have you visit.The Admissions Office is open during the sale; we encourage you to stop by and say hello. The office opens at 9 am each day, and closes at 6 pm on Thursday, 7 pm on Friday and 4 pm on Saturday. Admissions is closed on Sunday."

Behind the creators of Zapow! in this picture, on the wall, is one of my favorite drawings of mine I made on a brown paper bag! XD

An excellent selection of my work is available at the gallery including prints, jewelry, hair accessories and the Make Your Own Grave plush. ZaPow! Gallery is Asheville's newest and coolest art gallery that represents a selection of illustrators and pop artists, provides studio space for locals and is in general really awesome. I'm kinda sad they haven't invented the transporter yet so I could check it out. If you're in the Asheville area you should!


Moore Coloring Party

Justin Moore took some amazing photographs from the Coloring Party show at the Middle East Upstairs a few weeks ago! The incredible creative and interactive vibe of the night is perfectly captured!
