Summer's the perfect time for a little light-hearted levity, a little mischief. This year's show features a wide range of fun-filled nuttiness, everything from toys gone bad to the Seven Deadly Sins (in glitter, of course). What happens if the video game character of your youth visits the San Francisco of today, or characters from your favorite scifi series show up on a surf board, or as customized rubber ducks?! A lovely group of animal portraits and paintings of vintage toys rounds out the show. As usual, everything's

Starting today, all proceeds from my prints, t-shirts, mugs, mouse pads and various products sold on etsy, DeviantArt, CafePress and Zazzle will be donated to Living Compassion.
They are an amazing group of people who do great work both here and in Africa, helping people end suffering. Because they are Monks, living at a Zen Monastery, they survive totally on proceeds from retreats/workshops and donations from the community. The recession has hit them hard as people have less to donate and cannot afford to go on retreat.
The Monastery is in jeopardy as is all their charitable work in Africa and around the US.
So, if you buy a refrigerator

I've got 3 shows coming up in the next 3 months!
I just found out yesterday that I was accepted as a member of Big Umbrella Studios!
I will participate in the All Members Showcase in March.
I'm so excited.
Here is a link to their website: http://www.bigumbrellastudios.com/
Clearly they aren't done with it. Maybe I can help them out :)

In April one of my Lil' Abominations will be in a show at Chuckwa in Fullerton, CA.
the show is curated by United CAT artist's consortium.
I just got home from a weekend home to attend my Dad's memorial. I feel like I have been turned inside out and beaten with a meat tenderizer. I haven't been able to paint and am wondering if my new, happy, joyful celebrations of deformity are going to come to a screeching halt. It's too soon yet to work out any of these feelings via painting therapy but I may feel the need to start spewing out deeply disturbing and heartrendingly honest pieces soon.
To tell you the truth, I've been really happy to be able to paint something fun and cute and light and don't really want to paint the cathartic expressive stuff I've been doing for years.
I feel a little funny about it but i just created an ad on facebook for my paintings. How will my friends feel when they get an ad on the side of their browser for my work. It makes me cringe a bit.
I don't know. All I know is I want to get a lot of exposure so I'm using every means at my disposal. I'm trying not to think of it as "art" but rather as a product I'm trying to push. I want people to buy mugs and magnets and crap with my images on them and they have to see them to do that so that's what I'm trying to accomplish.
