The Exodus Begins…

My family and I are about to make a big move to the midwest. This is both exciting and daunting, as I have lived in SoCal for over 20 years now and it has become as much my home as my roots back in Nebraska. There are many reasons that have lead to this decision and it is something that has been on my mind for a few year now. I don’t have all the answers right now, but will most likely go into depth when I have more time to reflect.

In the meantime…

Movingsale Ad

To avoid moving merchandise, I am offering a MOVING SALE to deplete inventory and liquidate some items. Starting now, everything in the store (except for prints and original artwork) is at least 10% off when you use the code: EXODUS at checkout. Items that are already marked down will have the 10% discount applied making those items as much as 40% off. At some time before the move in August, I will be temporarily shutting down the store until I get settled in my new location.

That is all for now. More about this adventure coming soon.

FRANKENSTEIN MEETS LITTLE WOMEN

42551334 1829800007073469 4223979165998645248 N

In conjunction with the Fall South Pasadena Arts Crawl, the South Pasadena Public Library presents an exhibition featuring the artwork of 11 accomplished artists and illustrators. The artwork—much of it created specifically for this exhibition—is inspired by two beloved literary classics that are celebrating anniversaries in 2018: Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein marks its 200th anniversary and Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women its 150th.

The opening reception is Saturday, October 20, 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Library Community Room at 1115 El Centro Street, South Pasadena, California, 91030. Throughout the following week the Library will host related programs, including a Louisa May Alcott living history performance, an artists’ panel discussion, a screening of Bride of Frankenstein (1935), an illustrated talk titled “Frankenstein Dissected” and a closing reception. For more information, visit the Library’s website: www.southpasadenaca.gov/library.

Frankenstein Meets Little Women: A Monster Mash is curated by performer and educator Valerie Weich. Weich founded Literary Lives, an educational performing arts outreach program for students and has performed throughout Southern California as Louisa May Alcott. Since 2012 Weich has been researching the lives of Mary and Percy Shelley and Lord Byron at The Huntington Library as an Independent Scholar in order to develop a new one-woman presentation about Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein.

I will be exhibiting and selling my Frankenstein Portrait in watercolor and ink.

FRANKENSTEIN 200

Frank200ad

2018 commemorates the 200th anniversary of the classic Victorian novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. The story of Frankenstein has been a huge influence on me and my artwork. I even had the opportunity to illustrate the 1818 edition as a fantastical graphic novel hybrid. There have been many ways I’ve partaken in this Bicentennial including print and merch releases and an online discount on my Frankenstein book. I’m also excited to be a part of the Frankenstein 200 group art show, curated by Chogrin, being held at Corey Helford Gallery with the opening this Saturday Sept 8th.

Wretchofsorrows Framed

My contribution to the Frankenstein 200 group show is “Wretch of Sorrows” based on my own version of the creature from my book Frankenstein published by Harper Collins.
