It's summertime, and as many of you know, that means I'm sweating night and day. Seriously, I'm already wishing for fall because of this. Probably the coldest spring I can ever remember and then a 50-degree jump in a week. It's sweltering, I'm cranky, but I have good news. Shows, publications, and even music. Here's the rundown:
On June 21st I will be showing a few drawings at the Stage 773 Solstice Art Exhibit. It's a fundraiser that's part of a 2-week long event. The art exhibit is one-day only, and I'll also have some merchandise there for sale, too - t-shirts, drawings, postcards, and even magnets. There's a little info about the whole deal here, but not much on the art exhibit as of yet. Stay tuned.
On July 8th I will be having a two-person show with Morgan Sims at the Milk Factory. I believe the opening will be from 6 - 9 p.m. Morgan is an amazing artist, the Milk Factory is a super venue - it's gonna be a great night, so come enjoy it with us.
From July 29th - 31st, I will have some work in an exhibit curated by Emma Stein during the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival. Once I have more information on the location and hours I will post it.
In publication news, I will have a drawing in one of the next two volumes of Studio Visit magazine. I will also have a drawing included in the first issue of Brooklyn Art Project Quarterly. There are no dates set for release yet, but as soon as they are available I will be posting the links.
And, last, but certainly not least, English rock band Lux Lisbon have released their album, "Your heart is a weapon the size of your fist." I've contributed artwork for the album, and I must say, it's a bit of a dream come true seeing my work used for album art. When I was a kid I thought it'd be pretty damn cool to see that happen, and well, there it is. Proceeds of the album go to MIND - a mental health charity, which is a great cause worth supporting. You can "like" the band on their facebook page - give 'em a listen, they're gonna be the next big thing. And buy that album! It's sure to be a collector's item someday.
Oof...okay, I think I'm done with all the news. I've cooled down a bit, and I'm looking to stay that way. Until next time, my friends.
