a sign of the time

I am beginning a new body of work that will be a branch of Boom Town, but smaller pieces that might turn into affordable reproductions!  My work is evolving slowly, but I am really liking these 5 x 7 pieces. The real goal is to be consistent about creating and finishing work I’ve started regardless of how I might feel about it during the process.  Smaller work makes that a little easier, it also makes me feel freer to experiment with new ideas.

This new body of work means a website re-vamp, and hopefully an online store of originals and/or prints in the near future.





The Philadelphia Cartoonist Society is showing at the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts in Millville, New Jersey. I will have no less than EIGHT new pieces in the show and will be in the fine company of my fellow PCS members. Above is one of my new pieces.

If you can make it, please join us tomorrow for our opening reception :

PCS takes Millville!  // 6PM – 9PM // Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts // N High Street // Millville, NJ 08332

There will be refreshments and merchandise available at the opening. Hope to see you there!! Also, big thanks to Kyle Margiotta for spearheading this exhibit.

Hello! Above you’ll find BT-Smoke from the Boom Town show (closing this Wednesday) at the Last Drop Coffee House.

I know, I know, I promised more frequent posts. What happened to January anyway?

What artists should learn from showing in exhibits, is to listen to and watch people at the openings. At my reception, I learned what folk gravitated toward the most, what elements of my pieces struck them, and what price point was an upward limit. Being December, and being a coffee shop, I did not expect to sell the more expensive pieces, but that is why I had a range of price points. This is all stuff I learned over time and pricing is still something I struggle with.

What is a Boom Town without machines? I painted this piece in reference to my Drifting Parade show in 2012.
