Hey fellow artists and friends! Wow, can you believe it's 2012 and already February!! Last year was good with work and my paintings. It was off to a good start in January! I was invited to be a part of a 5 person show called "SuperKickAss" @ The WWA Gallery in Culver City. I displayed 4 large pieces and Sold 3! I was super happy to be a part of such a great show and awesome group of artists. In February, I did a small piece for the WIA: Woman In Animation Group Show called " Goodness United". It was great to meet so many wonderful ladies in Animation! That piece was gifted. Next, in March, I did a piece for a show called "Shave and a Haircut" @ Monkeyhouse Toys. This piece was called "Mustache Melody". Had a lot of fun with this one and the colors were so saturated. ;) After this, I took on some freelance work(children's book illustrations), outside of work that kept me busy for 3 months. I then returned to do a piece for this year's "i am 8bit" Group Exhibition. This was super fun, got to meet lots of brilliant artists and I had my piece from the last 8_bit show in the 2nd vol. "Super i am 8-bit" Book! So I was a part of a small book signing panel, the week of the opening. ;) It was really cool to meet all those fans and experience a book signing. The piece I did for the show was called "Ready!" After that show, I did a small piece for a group show held at Carter Sexton Art Gallery and Supplies. It was called "Morning Glory" and it sold before the show started. :) I was super happy.
I wish I painted more, but I had a lot of work and freelance to work on, so I guess it balanced out. Very grateful to be able to work in what I do and happy to be able to have lovely fans like you to like what I do. ;)
This year is starting off great! I just did a small piece for a show called "VS. a show of Opposites".
It's an 18 person show Curated by Daisy Church. Click the link below or check it here:
Here is the piece I did:
SO I can't wait for what's to come of this Dragon Year. I am currently working on 2 pieces for two up coming shows and the end of this month. I will post more about it soon. My prediction for this new year, is that I will paint more and possibly larger pieces. In the meantime, Thanks so much for sticking with me and coming by to say hi! Love you guys!
Cheers~ <3 dee
