I’m currently working on a small painting for this show coming up at Spoke Art from Sept. 7th- 28th. It is Casey Weldon’s solo show, and a huge group show of the adorable internet sensation, Lil BUB the cat!
There is a book signing as well as a meet & greet with BUB at the gallery, but tickets must be purchased in advance. I wish I could fly out and meet her!
Don’t know who the magical cat is? Visit www.lilbub.com
This will be the first L.A. show I’ve been in for quite some time; it’s also the first time I created a painting while intoxicated pretty much the whole process! I thought it best to keep with the theme of the show. I was inspired by the hair style of “Helen Lawson” in the movie Valley of the Dolls, but I was also drinking a lot of gin. She’s one of those ladies who lunch kind of gals, don’t you think?

I just did a few new iPhone cases, including “Duchess Varuca” and “The Immaculate and Fabulous Mary”. I’m actually getting myself a new mouse pad — may as well get one of my own, right? Or is that weird? I’m thinking the one of her…
12×12″ oil on panel. Started this back in June before I found out I had cancer and finally got around to finishing it. I have no idea what’s going on. Started it after my cat Milkshake died.
Wish you could see the fur and flower details better in online photos (click to zoom in).
When I look at the things I started or was working on during my radiation, it’s pretty clear it was having an effect on my brain!
Some newer little bits and pieces of press online….

If you are going to be in the Bay Area on Friday the 28th, swing by Eclectix Gallery for The Tattoon Show!
I’ll be showing the lovely “Evangeline” in this.
I did a little Q&A over at Cleveland Bachelor just recently, and if you are in the Cleveland area be sure to come out on Friday for the one-night special group show at William Rupnik Gallery.
I’ll be showing 4 paintings, along with several awesome people like BASK, Chris Ryniak, Derek Hess, Tes One, Matt Sharp, Mallorie Freeman, Andrea Heimer, and the guys from Cleveland SGS.
Also, can anyone tell me why I have “Dance Hall Days” stuck in my head? I suppose it isn’t the worst thing, but I find it odd it has been going on 2 days now.
