One More Day to Vote for my Self-Portrait!

If you haven't seen it before, this roller derby self-portrait was created with carbon dust/pencil on paper that I had my derby teammates skate over. So, dirt & rink crud is definitely part of thee piece. This was the first attempt at what would be my series for last year's Art Prize. So, if you like it, could you give me a vote? Voting closes tomorrow: https://jerrysartarama.wishpond.com/2015-jerrys-artarama-self-portrait-contest/entries/17456978

Thank you!

I almost totally forgot that I entered a self-portrait competition in February... voting opened on April 6th <facepalm>  and closes on the 21st (next week! gah!).

I would love it, if you'd give me a vote: https://jerrysartarama.wishpond.com/2015-jerrys-artarama-self-portrait-contest/entries/17456978

...and it runs until the 28th of March. There will be a talk with the show's juror, Adrian Hatfield, on March 19th. I may attend to talk art. We shall see.

Oh, and then there's the "little thing" about Murder's portrait receiving 2nd Place in the whole thing. No truly, I am SO honored to have gotten this accolade!

TONIGHT ONLY! Derby Portraits on Display!

If you are in the region, you might consider stopping by Massage Mechanics @ 11/13 Cross Street, Ypsilanti, MI to see all of the portraits I've been doing for Art Prize! They will be up from 6-9pm. 

Not to be a braggart, or anything, but they are MUCH nicer in person that via these camera phone pics :)

The First Friday Art Show is in 4 Days!

Just to recap:

An early preview of my Art Prize derby portraits will take place at Massage Mechanics (#12 below) on Friday, June 6th from 6-9pm! Local folks, come on out and see all of these lovely ladies (and gents - soon!) for yourself at Ypsi's June First Friday. I'd love to see/meet you :)
