Broken World: Exhibition Dates!

 My senior thesis exhibition, Broken World: The Uprising of the Condemned, will be on exhibit in Gallery Two on the second floor of the Humanities Building at the University of West Georgia. The exhibition features a series of 11 large scale pastel illustrations that sequentially show the unfolding of an action adventure story inspired visually and narratively by comic books, video games, and movies.

Exhibition Dates: July 30th - August 3rd
Artist Talk and Closing Reception: August 3rd, 5:00 pm -7:30 pm
(There will be food at the reception! : D)

The galleries at UWG are free and open to the public Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5pm. There is parking available in the staff lot at Humanities after 5:30pm and guest parking anytime in the adjacent lot.

Reproductions now available!

Lately I've started doing more original illustrations and less (printmaking) prints these days mostly due to time constraints, so I've begun to make those available on Etsy by printing reproductions! One of my latest straight up illustrations is this watercolor of a calaca mariachi band:

The random side projects are helping me blow off some steam from the pastel drawing series I've been working on. On that note, prints of those will soon be available as well! 

I'll probably do some idea crossovers for relief prints from these eventually, but for now, it's all about the Senior Show and getting that thesis wrapped up!

New on Twitter

Hello everyone... Just wanted to put it out there that I started a Twitter to stay in tune with the scene... There are so many people on there posting work and updates, if you haven't checked it out it's worth doing so.
