FALL! I'm so excited that Summer is waving goodbye.
I've been working on a lot of group show pieces, traveling to see friend's new works displayed, reading heaps, watched a few documentaries, had a blast getting interviewed for Mike Maxwell's "Live Free" podcast, packing orders for the new "Slouching of Grace" gicleé print and enjoying moments to just step back.
I was asked to be in the last (last) show at the old Corey Helford Gallery. This is the last show before the gallery closes its doors and re-opens in a newer and bigger space. The theme for the show was "Penciled Masses"- all artists were asked to create a piece using colored pencil. I don't "do" color. I just choose not to, but I figured I would let myself play a lil' and worked on a large study of a piece I've been wanting to work out.
It turned out pretty good and swiftly found an owner. I'm really stoked for the show and will be flying down for the opening so stop by and say hello if you're in town.
"Your Penciled Masses, Yearning to Be Free" Opens Saturday, October 3rd from 7-10PM featuring all new multiple-figure colored pencil works by amazing artists: Natalia Fabia, Sylvia Ji, Brandi Milne (see the attached evite for her image), Liz McGrath, Luke Chueh, Lola, Kukula, Korin Faught, Michael Page, Mike Stilkey, Van Arno, Andrew Brandou, Beau Stanton, Caia Koopman, J.
