New Year, New Art

I’m not one to overemphasize a random date. Birthdays, anniversaries, you name it: they just always seemed a bit arbitrary to me. But, the coming of the New Year seems to have some real relevance this time around. I’ll just go ahead and admit it: I’m super excited for 2015!

Here’s a little inkling of what’s to come:

  1. Much more art! (of course)
  2. I will be exhibiting at TWO conventions this year, Spectrum Fantastic Art Live in Kansas City, MO and Illuxcon in Allentown, PA. So stoked!
  3. I have plane tickets to Eastern Europe this coming summer and plan to make a great big plein air expedition out of it! Expect on location paintings in beautiful foreign locales such as Latvia, Poland, Sweden and Romania. Wish me luck!
  4. I will soon be releasing part of a major project that I’ve been working on with Centipede Press. I can’t speak about details for now but trust me… it’s gonna be killer 🙂
  5. I am working on a new portfolio website. It will be faster, more elegant and all around better. Stay tuned!

And here are some more progress images of a recent personal work. I’m looking forward to continually evolving my practice, learning and having fun! 2015- here we go!

A value study for my as yet unnamed personal work. I experimented with making this digitally; I think it really helped!

    Thanks John! Illuxcon is a new one for me and it’s located in Allentown, PA. I’m looking forward to exhibiting my art on the east coast for the first time. It should be an awesome event!
