A long coming update

It’s been over a year since I last updated my website blog. Where does time go? Since I last posted I lost my dog of sixteen years and a cat of twelve. I started teaching at a new school, continued to administer at another for the summer, and I submitted a few pieces for a top secret project that should be revealed later this year. I can’t share much, but presented here is an unused page of the project. Though these characters were abandoned, I found a fun way to incorporate them into something else. I finally reworked this website to include more examples of students’ work as well as some more of my own. I need to make time in the future to have my artwork professionally photographed. Sending lots of love to the Cyberverse as I wrap up another school year and prepare for a jam packed summer.

BACK ISSUE! #94 out Jan. 2017

As usual, the holidays are a blur and suddenly we’re at the end of another year! As much as I try to avoid the chaos by staying ahead and organized, I somehow always feel the pressure of a deadline or two. Luckily 2016 wasn’t too bad and most of the strain I felt was self inflicted. Besides, I have so much to be grateful for, it’s hard to focus on the stress that inevitably develops with any project. Professionally there have only been highs, adding to make this a whirlwind year. Continue reading

A Day Without Art

img_1939The holiday rush has begun and I have multiple projects on my plate, but what else is new? Several weeks ago I was asked to contribute to a Day Without Art, a three day exhibit that opens in Boston on World AIDS Day. I’m making up for lost time and painting oil on a 4’x4′ wood panel. This is what I have thus far, but my plan is to work through the night and have the piece drying in front of a fan and heater for forty-eight hours. I’ll post the finished piece on Facebook. There you’ll also find more information about this annual event.

A Budding Comic Book Historian

I’ve been busy researching and interviewing several comic book creators for a couple of articles I’m writing for BACK ISSUE Magazine. As a long-time fan/collector it’s a dream come true. As an artist myself, it’s been an invaluable experience listening and learning from the greats. Here are a few clues of what to expect in early 2017!image

April Break

I’ve been so busy with personal projects that I never took the time to actively promote my intensive ceramic workshop for April Break. It was filled nonetheless and we didn’t have a lot of room to move. The group was terrific, dedicated, and cranked out some amazing work in a week. The entire experience was a lot of fun!
