Wow! That was a busy week. Here’s what I’ve been tinkering around on. There will be new art at the Rendezvous/Jewelbox Theatre starting July 5th – and I’m ankle-deep in glitter and fake jewels creating it! July is Burlesque month for the place, so some sparkly ladies are in the works!sweet photo taken by Andreas with his fish-eye camera-phone lens (so jealous)!A good excuse to gather some fancy papers!!Sketches and brainstorming: oh, the possibilities! I’m still coming off of the high that was last night’s “Behind the Blue Door Burlesque” – a Dr. Who inspired show – whaaaat?Five different girls are in the beginning stages, with more painting and bling to come. This has been a really good excuse to have fun, experiment and basically, cover the house in glitter. Now… back to work!!!
Here’s my contribution to the Game Over video game-themed art show taking place at Giant Robot’s GR2 next month, from June 2 - June 27 (2063 Sawtelle Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90035).
Though I’ve played through a few games in my day, this time I chose not to go the fan-art route (though that would have been fun, also!), but to try and illustrate the cozy feeling of being in PJs - snacks, drinks, weapons and power-ups at the ready, getting lost in a tangle of cords though OF COURSE we have newfangled wireless gadgets now.
The “Fireflies and Cigarettes” show is up and ready at Mace Mead Works in Dayton, WA. Thank you so much, Rachel and Taylor!! If I do say so myself, it looks fantastic, and I’m looking forward to being back there June 1st for opening night, 7-10pm.
If you can make it, do come! Great wine and great people!

Oh my goodness. If you are in the Dayton area, DO stop into Mace Mead Works if you’re into drinking fantastic wine. Their mead and reds are made in small batches, feature beautifully designed labels, and are super yummy. I’m kicking myself for not taking photos of their newly released syrah (the ghost) and carménère – both dead tasty and pinned with hand-pulled printed labels. Soon!!
Here’s the official flyer for the Year of the Dragon GR2 show! I’m sad I can’t make it down there, but if any of you are in LA around that time, try to check it out as I’m sure it’ll be jam-packed with amazing work by equally amazing artists!!
