Art Show "Aware"

These are just a few pictures from the show. My first piece "the Farce".

My second piece have all been posted individually before, but I really do feel like they're kind of a collection, so that's how I displayed them.

A couple of my fellow cohorts(from left): Mischon, Melissa, Beth, and me, around one of Beth's sculptures.

This a picture of our space. It's the existing coffee bar at our church that was transformed into a great space. The show was a really good experience and we're considering doing one every other month or so, and planning on changing locations for each show, unless we stumble on money for a permanent space.

The Farce

This is the main piece I was working on for our art show. It's subtitled "All we need is a little force-ification". This is definitely the biggest, most intense piece I've done so far. I feel like it was much more involved than most of my undergraduate work(which may not be saying a whole lot). I would say I spent between 15-20 hrs from concept to completion. There are some things I'm not pleased with, but overall it came together nicely and I got good reactions at the show.

Here's a teaser for my art show piece, not finished, but getting there. Here's a hint, it's not Tim Gunn. I tried painting the Tim Gunn one with acrylics and it wasn't going well, probably because I haven't painted anything in close to a year. So instead of digitally painting that one, I completely changed directions. I'm hopefully going to finish up in the next day or so.

Art Show

I am hopefully going to be posting some new work soon. I'm part of a group of artists from my church who are starting a co-op. At the moment it's called the Anderson Art Coop, which at first I didn't see as co-op but coop. I think we could have some fun with that, but not everyone agrees. Anywho...we are having a show at our church on March 22nd. Right now I think there are 6-8 people that will display something. I'm hoping to do a couple illustrations and also display the illustrations I did for the webzine as a group. I think the group has a lot of potential and it's something that I've been needing. We'll see how it goes.

Illustration featured on Otr's website

Just a quick update on my Over the Rhine illustration that I did last fall.Karin and Linford contacted me about using it on their website to promote their tour dates with Ani DiFranco. I, of course, said yes and it's been up on their website for the past week or so, and today a link was posted for this blog. Their website is A big thank you to Karin and Linford.
