South Boston Open Studios is Next Weekend!

May 14th, 2016

Exciting News! South Boston Open Studios is next weekend… May 21-22 from 12-6 each day. I’ll be in the Distillery Building again, hopefully in the same spot as last time. I have prints, cards, and original paintings to sell and it should be a really fun time. There are TONS of artists who show at this Open Studios, so it’s worth coming and spending a few hours wandering the wonderful, art-filled maze that is the Distillery.

Additionally, 555 Gallery across the street will be hosting our auction to benefit the Paraclete Center. I donated a beautifully framed print of Crobraham Lincoln and there are lots of other paintings to bid on. The opening recpetion for this part will be on Friday, May 20, from 7 to 10PM. You can also bid on everything online here.

See you there!

Climate Change Hydra Monster

January 8th, 2016

A few months ago I was asked to help someone illustrate the many-headed beast of climate change and how it is affecting our planet. My client had very specific ideas about what he wanted, which is always kind of a blessing and a curse for an illustrator. We worked together tweaking this image for a long time, and this was the ultimate result.

Piano for the City of Fitchburg

November 25th, 2015

A few weeks ago, I was approached by someone from the City of Fitchburg to paint a piano for their community arts and music program. This week, I got started on the process. First, we went to the piano repair/storage place that was pretty incredible in and of itself. It was an enormous warehouse filled with every kind of piano you could imagine. We were greeted by Holly, who was smoking a cigarette and telling us all about our new “Dogbone” piano. Apparently there was a mix-up about who was supposed to move the piano to the painting location, so I was only able to take the front panels for now. My contact Coe was generous enough to let me use her studio space downtown to paint. It’s a gorgrous old office building with great lighting and plenty of space. I was too jealous to ask how much she pays as I thought about my small, austere space in South Boston.

I chose to do a bees and clovers theme and got started. I already had a can of caribbean blue leftover from the whale-themed utility box I did a few months ago in Jamaica Plain. I used that as my background color and decided on gold and beige as my accents. I finished these panels in a day and now I’m just waiting on them to move the piano so I can paint the body. I’m very excited and will post more pictures when it happens! For now, here are some progress shots…

Directory of Illustration

November 25th, 2015

 

 

 

 

I got my copy of this year’s Directory of Illustration a couple of days ago and it looks great! For those of you who don’t know, the DOI goes out to art directors, creative directors, art buyers, and anyone else in the position to hire an illustrator in America. Fingers crossed that it gets me a bit of work!

Pearl Street Gallery Show

October 29th, 2015

I just found out one of my paintings (Revenge) was selected to be part of the Holiday Show at the Pearl Street Gallery!

The opening reception will be on November 7th from 4 to 8pm. I’m also participating in South Boston Open Studios that weekend so I’ll be at the Distillery Gallery in South Boston from noon to 5:30pm, and the opening atPearl Street Gallery from 6 to 8pm. I would be honored if you would come by either Open Studios or the show opening and say hello.

If you can’t make it to the opening, the show at Pearl Street will be up until December 20th, but check the website for gallery hours because I don’t think they’re open too often.
