From Anaheim to Alhambra

HangingAtSams_DisplayI had a busy couple of days in Southern California last week. Got a jump start on the weekend by spending all day Friday in Disneyland. Had a great time showing my friends around the parks. They came all the way from Minnesota! Nothing is more fun than watching kids experience Disneyland for the first time. Everything is new again.

On Saturday, I had a signing event at WonderGround Gallery. Enjoyed a quick lunch with artists Jared Andrew Schorr, J. Scott Campbell and Jasmine Becket-Griffith immediately following their very busy event. Then it was back to the gallery to meet some fantastic guests and sign my work for them. Had a great turn-out. Sold out the entire stock of the Happy Haunts deluxe prints. More will be available soon. Check the gallery for availability.

It’s always such a pleasure to get to talk to guests of the gallery. They have such nice things to say and it’s a great source of inspiration for me. These signings are one of the best parts of working with WonderGround. As always, the cast members made it a smooth and enjoyable experience. Theirs is not an easy job and I am so grateful for their efforts to make these appearances run like clock work. My thanks to everyone involved!

Gallery Nucleus – The Physics of Friendship: A Tribute To The Big Bang Theory

After WonderGround, I went directly to Gallery Nucleus for the opening of The Physics of Friendship: A Tribute To The Big Bang Theory. I have two pieces in the show, which runs through November 10th. Arrived a little early to do some fun press pictures, a few interviews and (of course) a little shopping. This was the first Gallery Nucleus show I attended and it was impressive. In addition to all the great art, they featured some fun props from the show and a few great activities – including a make-your-own Penny Blossom! I had a great time and it’s always fun to meet the other artists in the exhibit. My thanks to Wade Buchanan for a great evening. It was a thrill to be a part of a Gallery Nucleus show! Visit the Gallery Nucleus website for information on purchasing prints from the show.

Comic Con & The Big Bang Theory

Had a fantastic week in San Diego, attending Comic Con for the very first time. It was a thrill to see my work displayed at the massive Warner Bros. booth on the show floor. They featured all the art from the exhibit on the walls of their gigantic set-up. My image even flashed across the many video screens they had up displaying all the different franchises they were featuring. As part of The Big Bang Theory artist series, we were invited to attend the very cool Warner Bros. party atop San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel. This was an invitation-only event celebrating WB Television and 75 years of DC Comics. Lots of industry folks and celebrities were on hand and we even got to shake hands with a few of them. Said hello to Kevin Bacon (The Following), Topher Grace (That 70’s Show), Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight), Micheal Emerson (Person of Interest and LOST), Maggie Q (Nikita) and the Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill. Took a photo with Supernatural‘s Jared Padalecki and Paul Wesley of The Vampire Diaries. We were star struck to say the least. My thanks to the great folks at Warner Bros. for inviting me to participate in this art show and including us in the big soiree.

My thanks to Huckleberry for selling prints from the show. Got to spend some time with the super-talented Martin Hsu who also has a fantastic piece on display. Thank you to everyone who came by to say hi and purchase a print. I hope to know more about the availability of these prints now that Comic Con has ended. I’ll post more about here once I know if and when it will be available online.

The Big Bang Theory Artist Series

Little Big Bang Theory – Comic Con 2013

A while back, I was asked to contribute a piece of art inspired by THE BIG BANG THEORY. I came up with “Little Big Bang Theory” (right) which will debut at San Diego Comic Con this week. The image will be available on limited edition prints through HUCKLEBERRY (Booth#3449). I’ll be signing the prints there on Friday July 19th. All seven pieces in the show will be on display at the Warner Bros. booth (#4545).  Come by and say hello if you’re at the con this year. This is my first time attending and I couldn’t be more excited. Hope to see you there.

My sincere thanks to the team at Warner Bros. who put this show together. It was a fun project to work on. Thank you for inviting me to participate.
