I just spent the last two weeks on the east coast visiting clients and friends. I was in Providence Rhode Island for ICON7 where I was able to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones. I participated in the Rhode Show where I sold some goods and showed off my new portfolio. Some of what you see here will be on Etsy soon, so watch out!

I also danced with some aliens...

 In New York I fought the heat wave and made the rounds with my portfolio, relishing the brief stints in the air conditioned offices. I love to be able to meet new and old clients face to face! I was even able to hit up some flea markets for some new collage fodder. It was a great trip, but I can't wait to be back in my studio ready to work!

Friday I will be selling lots of original art and showing off my portfolio at ICON7's Rhode Show in Providence, RI. Come on out and visit if you are in the area!

 Today I have a piece in the New York Times Op-Ed about child abuse and the silence and shame male victims experience as adults. This was a really fun one to illustrate despite the grim subject matter. Thanks to AD Matthew Dorfman on this one.

Here's an alternate that I quite like but the cub scout uniform made the illustration too pointed, and made it feel like the article was directed at the boy scouts.
