I'll be graduating soon.....December 13! But I'll be in the requisite Art Center Grad Show the night before on Friday, December 12 from 7 - 10 pm. All are welcome and this image above, hand-etched and printed with six linocut blocks on the letterpress will be handed out (no two are alike!), as well as some other leave-behinds. This image, a fox sparrow, is part of my ongoing series on Southern California birds and I'll post more as soon as I can. Thanks!

I was able to participate in One Colorado's Open Market this year, on October 12, which is part of Pasadena Art weekend. It was great to see all the different work of fellow artists and designers and it was a really great turnout this year! I had participated in the past with only a handful of tables but there were well over 100 artists participating this year. This event comes only twice a year and I believe the next one is in March so mark your calendars and I'll try to post the date when I find out. It's generally always held on a Sunday from 10 am to dusk. Thanks to all those who came to support us! I was selling framed prints of my Death in Nature series (bottom two above are examples from the series) as well as framed prints of some of my children's book illustrations, and The Birds series. I did much better than expected and actually sold out of my ducks (above), sparrows, and my children's book stuff! Thanks to all those who supported me with a purchase! It was very encouraging. I got lots of helpful suggestions, like requests to do rabbits and lions, and to print the images on t-shirts. I highly recommend fellow Art Center students/alumni to participate as it's a really fun event and I invite everyone to attend as it's FREE, fun, and you get to see and score never-before-seen artwork from some really cool young artists. I definitely plan to participate again next time.
