Two big things happening art-wise for me. I’ll be doing a book coming out on Cooperative Press of my “National Portrait Gallery of Kessa” paintings! I actually don’t think I’ll have room to include all of them — too many, really — but it will be a good survey and give the full biographies as well as family trees, crests, and map. It’s actually making me realize how damn complicated I made things for myself trying to re-do the family tree in a way that isn’t just scribbles for my own uses to keep track of all these damn people I made up! More info to be announced on all of that.
I’m also having a solo show at Articulated Gallery in San Francisco, CA starting on January 7th, 2012! This will consist of paintings, with my usual fictional biographies, that are a part of my new series dealing with medical practices of the past. Needless to say these are going to be a little different from what I usually do; a little more surreal and symbolist. I’ve been working on linen for the first time for these new paintings, too. Here is a sneak peek of what I’ve been working on lately…

The new piece looks great, can’t wait to see all of it. Congrats on the book and the solo show, what huge accomplishments!
Thanks Nia! I love deadlines, so this was needed for sure.
