Hi everyone, I've got three upcoming shows I'd love to talk about, so here goes!
Up first and opening Thursday, June 23rd is Cute, Cute Kawaii! Japan's Pop Culture Movement at the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego, CA. This show runs through October 23rd and will include a Comic Con after party on July 22nd from 7-11pm. I was on a roll with kawaii food and decided to do three more pieces for this event. You can see "Mister Brown", "Mister Green" and "Mister Pink" above. All are 7" x 7" acrylic on maple for $200 a piece. For more information please visit their website.
Next up is 90's N!Q@P!Q opening Saturday, June 25thfrom 7-9pm at PIQ Grand Central Terminal, NYC. This show celebrates characters from 90's Nickelodeon shows and has quite the roster, curated by Crummy Gummy.
I couldn't help but do my rendition of Powdered Toast Man (you may remember him from "Ren & Stimpy"), but in his younger years when he was just a Powdered Toast Boy. He measures 8" x 8", acrylic on maple for $375.
For more information you can visit their Facebook event page here.
And last but not least is the 2016 More Than a Cone Auction which begins on July 5th. Every artist was given the task of transforming the "cone of shame" that pets sometimes wear when they need medical treatment. I just couldn't help but see a little Black Eyed Susan flower with a pug in the center. This painting is titled, "Petal Pug", 8" round acrylic on wood and is valued at $350.

That's all for now!
