ahoy-gowanus-small-v2 I will be showing mini paintings and sculptures this Sunday December 7th at Halyards, a fantastic and beautiful bar in Gowanus (406 Third Ave at 6th street) from noon to 6 pm. Five other amazing local artists will be there with handmade cards, jewelry, scarves, ceramics, candles and other great gifts. Halyards will have specials on hot cider, beer and grilled cheese! It’s a great chance to buy one of a kind objects d’art and support local artists.

Don’t miss out! You’ll have a chance to buy direct direct from artist and have a fun time to boot. Hope to see you there!

Sometimes you feel like your own art~

I was sorting through some old art scans this morning and came upon this drawing I made a few years ago. Somehow it seems appropriate for how I’ve been feeling these past few months. It’s not as dreary a palette as one of those Goya grotesques, and a bit more humorous with the character’s empty pockets, but the protagonists shares a similar dearth. Enjoy! I’m looking forward very much to its antithesis, with an ecstatic theme soon~

Kentucky Derby artwork is here!

The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow and as trainers, jockeys, owners and horses are making their final preparations, I’ve been busy putting together this year’s Derby chart for your perusal. With the exception of “Hoppertunity” who was a late scratch (noted on the artwork) , make your picks from this poster and you can’t go wrong. Is there anything to read in their postures and expressions? We’ll see soon! The poster is up at America’s Best Racing and also available as a print on my Etsy store. Enjoy!
