of misconceptions and marathons ...

"Pomp" and "Circumstance"

So as it turns out those pieces I'd been working on for the last few weeks will not be in this show. Surprisingly enough, that's good news. Good news because it means I'll get to continue working on that project and hopefully show off a much larger set of those pieces sometime next year.

So instead, I'll be displaying these two dapper fellows above at tomorrow's "Shimmer and Rot" show at Rothick Art House. This being a Kustom Kulture show, my other pieces would have been a bit out of place. This is where the marathon comes into play. I didn't realize my mistake and start these new pieces until Friday night, hoping to turn them in Sunday afternoon. And unlike my usual fourth quarter heroics (read procrastination), these pieces were done completely within that time period, from first sketch to final varnish in about two days.

I'm not sure if I should be celebrating that or not.

In any case "Shimmer and Rot" opens tomorrow, and I can not recommend it more. The show will feature a huge new batch of work from Big Toe alongside work from 20 other contributing artists. If you're in the area you need to stop by, Rothick shows do not disappoint.


Art Show next Saturday in Anaheim!

Next Saturday, the 13th, I'll be displaying a set of brand new paintings alongside some amazing talent at the Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim. That's a preview of some of the new pieces up top, I decided I'd wait until the opening to show you guys the new pieces in their entirety.

The show includes a big set of new work from Big Toe, as well as a group show including myself, Sam Gambino, Tom Vadakan, Candy, Juice Lee, Sara Haase, LD Grant, Juan Muniz, Kent Reppert, Patrick Hammerlein, Amy Kaplan, Tim Shelton Danny Beck, Romina Hayag, David Lozeau, Dave Burke, James Owens, John Bell, Keith Weesner, Scott Fisk and Daisy Church.

Rothick always puts on a great show, so if your in the Anaheim area next Saturday this is definitely going to be worth a look. Hope to see you there.
