In The Shoe Show – Underbelly@Anomaly

Recently we had the opportunity to join other local artists to participate in a show hosted by the good people of Underbelly @ Anomaly called, The Shoe Show. Emily Moody & Shea Slemmer are wonderful hosts who are doing a lot of good things with their location in Five Points. We took to the call to artists as an opportunity to have fun with a different kind of canvas. We had three sets of shoes represented at the show. One set, a collaboration of both our illustrations mixed in together, and the other two sets were done individually. They can still be seen up at Underbelly, and if you have never been there, with its outdoor setting and tree-house DJ booth, it’s definitely a place to check out in Five Points.

Mandusa—Entry for Beards & Brushes at Bogda

The Beards and Brushes show was chalked full of great people who submitted amazing pieces of beard inspired art. I am glad that I could be a part of it.

Update: Whats new?

We have been rather busy with our classes lately leaving posts spread a little thin these past few weeks. Luckily, we have not just been busy with our classes, but we have a couple of big things coming up.

With all that said, here is a couple of quick sketch illustrations and a colored Turtle Torino putting up Fridge stickers.

One of my new pieces, seen at Art Walk, is this painting below of a partial octopus tentacle. Painting is a new medium for me, and one that enjoyed and look forward to exploring further on my own and through a couple of workshops with D. Webster this summer. I am pretty sure the style for this painting, as far as illustrative nature and color choice, derives some influence from older Rob Zombie stuff. I really took to that stuff as a pre-teen and am sure it will influence me from time to time for the rest of my life.
