Jackalope Art Fair: Pasadena April 25+26

Yesterday I got the news, I was selected by the jury to be included in the upcoming inaugural Jackalope Arts Fair in Old Town Pasadena. This event promises to bring together more than 200 local artisans running the gamut from fine art to hand crafted goods.

This week also brought the Illustration Friday Topic: Reflection
So in honor of both I combined in this illustration.

More info on what I will include in my showing at the event coming as I work all that out. 

10x14 watercolor/gouache and ink on arches

There is a facebook event page set up for more information or if you would like to rsvp.

Items online!!!

Finally, I have a few items available online! Thanks to the wonderful response from so many of you at the POPUP shop last weekend. I was so nice to see so many in person, stop and chat for a few, once again thank you! Some of the inventory from the shop is available here for those who couldn't make it 

As you know much of my work available is in either very small quantities (the cards) or the one and only. For example there is just one hand drawn wooden ornament left! If you are looking for delivery by Christmas, T-shirts and light sculptures must be ordered by the 18th and all else by Friday the 19th. I would sincerely appreciate if you are so inclined to share:)

Happy Holidays Everyone!!!

ArtWalk Next Weekend!

It's that time of year again! Next Weekend!

You're invited! Saturday • October 11 • 11am - 5pm 
(on El Molino between Colorado Blvd and Green Street)

I will be @ booth 24 (directly across from Playhouse Alley) excited to say hello to all of you!

This past year has been a busy one for me, from the publishing of "I love to Be a Daddy" (the book I illustrated that launched at last years walk), to a commissioned public art project. I am hoping you have spotted in the Playhouse District (link about that project at the bottom here) I have a number of new original works, collaborations, new cards and prints all for sale at the walk.

I have also created 2 limited edition screen print versions of my "Local Hero" colorado bridge piece on a gorgeous green jute tote bag that will make it's public debut at the ArtWalk. Scoop one up and you get to carry my artwork and your love for the wonderful city of Pasadena every where you go. 

Thank you so much!!
I look forward to seeing you!

Most Sincerely,
