Independence Weekend Gallery Shows!

So for people in the Los Angeles area, I was just reminded that Gallery Nucleus is having the "Kiss from Tokyo" book signing and gallery exhibition this Friday night, July 3rd from 7-10pm. A friend of mine's got a piece in the show, and not to mention that the other artist's stuff looks pretty sweet too (from what I've seen on the blogs anyway)! The show is up til the 14th, so if you can't make it opening night, then you've got two weeks!

Also, once again, "Golden Age Heroes" same night, same time, only at Brave New Worlds in Philadelphia, PA. Check it out if you're an East Coaster in the neighborhood!


The Autumn Society posted a few photo's of the event up on their Flickr account. If you squint you can see my piece. :P

AH-ha-ha! I WIN!!

So, a month ago a friend of mine spoke to a friend of her's to get me into a gallery show in Philadelphia, Pa called the "Golden Age of Heroes" hosted by The Autumn Society. I was really excited and super pumped to do a piece based on old school comics, and of course being a huge Wonder Woman dork, I already knew I HAD to do something with her in it.

Then my summer job started. . . and I missed the deadline. . . oh well. BUT THEN, i grew some balls, contacted one of the curators and asked if I could still submit it. He said as long as the piece is there by July 1st, it's all good. And thanks to the AWESOME UPS dudes at our local UPS branch, they said it should show up on the 1st. So, Philadelphia here I COME!! :D

Thanks so much to the guys at the The Autumn Society again for letting me take part in this! There's no better way to honour the 4th than through awesome classic cartoons and comic characters?

Fashion Drawing Class (Half Way)

So I registered for this really short 6 week class on Fashion and Costume Design. It's a night class, with only 5 students. I'm enjoying it, for the most part. The teacher is new to teaching adults, so it's interesting how he deals with us. The part I've found the most interesting is how BAD I've been at it. I've had the class now for 4 weeks, only two left to go, and the 5 of us in the class are all struggling with getting the figure drawn in the correct 'fashion design' way. My personal problem is that I've been drawing thicker girls lately and I've completely forgotten how to draw anorexic chicks. :)

Anyway, not all my stuff is bad. . . Did these three little guys in my "journal" we've been keeping for the class. Just your regular old boring drawing from a magazine, but I'm really happy with the anorexia level and the marker stuff. (It's been more fun learning a new way to use my markers, not to mention actually using colors I've never used.)
