In just under the wire - phew! I've submitted this watercolor to a toy-themed exhibition at The Toledo Museum of Art. I'll find out next week if it's been accepted! Wish me luck! PS: This was VERY fun to draw & paint. I've been wanting to do something like this for an eon, it seems.
The word today is that the film has been selected in two film festivals! I'm proud to have been a small part.

As silly as it might seem, I get nervous over everything where my work is on public display. Yes, "even" an employee art exhibition. There were 200 entrants vying for awards and lookit me! I got one! I'm very honored! Perhaps this will lead to more partnerships with U of Mich to display my work - the ladies talked to me about it - so, stay tuned for that.
Next on to ArtPrize...
All eight derby portraits are ready for framing in preparation for ArtPrize in Grand Rapids! The official hanging of the show is Sept 17th - I cannot fathom how time got me here already! I'll post some pictures documenting all of this.
Now I'm going to go try not to fantasize too much about winning ArtPrize. That, ladies and gentlemen and everyone, would (and I'm not even remotely kidding) change my life.
Letting go of a piece is always a bit emotional for me. "Will I ever see it again?" inevitably pops into my head. Welp, nothing risked, nothing gained. Off to the post office!
The People's Choice vote for this piece is ongoing HERE, if you'd like to throw a vote my way (hint - don't click the FB 'like' button, click the 'vote' button).
Eff it. I'm scanning these derby portraits and tiling them together in Photoshop. One place here in Ann Arbor wanted FIFTY-EIGHT DOLLARS PER DRAWING to scan. Ha!
I think my little Epson scanner did just fine with these:
Upzette is done and ready for the U-M Employee Art Exhibition! I believe it'll be on display on the first floor of Taubman Center in about 2 weeks, opening reception on 9/9 and then it'll be up for 2 months. Let me know if you see it!
PS: "The honor of People's Choice, determined by votes of visitors to the exhibit, will also be awarded."
