here's a sneak peek at one of my pieces for this month's Spooky Art Show 3 at Amy's Ice Cream on Sixth and Lamar.

it's a multiple artist show with some really talented folks all doing Halloween themed work. (once the line-up is locked in, i'll post who's in the show.)

the Spooky Art Show is one of my favorite shows of the year. some of my personal favorite pieces have come out of creating stuff for this show.

and here's a head's up-- the reception for the show will be October 23.

brush work

it's been years since i worked with brush and ink. i'd never worked with ink washes. i've been working in my pencil/digital paradigm for so long, i'm jonesin' to do more work in "traditional" media. there's a tactility to analogue media i've been missing.
