Lil BUB Art Show in SF

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!

L.A. Group Show: Wasted

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?

APFRIENDGIFT

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…


Peeping at Bathing Ladies

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!

Press and a Portrait

Cleveland art shindig

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.

Forgotten Saints in Hollywood

Art Core presents "Forgotten Saints" a group show Saints that never were but should have been.
@ The Congregation of the Forgotten Saints 7569 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles Ca. 90046

Attendees at February 13ths black carpet opening reception can expect
the same over the top extravagance and attention to detail seen at the
Metal show reception. "Saints" will be set amongst a backdrop fitting
to the theme. Installations will include themed murals, a new archway
welcoming the participants into the world of "Preachers and fools", an
altar (set with hand carved statues, candles and flowers), an
interactive "Confessional" and special "Holy water" to quench your
thirst after an evening spent confessing your sins to a truly unique
group of unholy martyrs.
Art Core's last event at The Congregation
of Forgotten Saints saw over 900 art fans cross its threshold, so
showing up early is recommended. There will be plenty of street parking after 8pm. Make sure you wear your Sunday best, all attendees will be photographed on the Black Carpet upon arrival
