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.

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.
• Beards and Brushes—Saturday, September 5th @ Bogda
Nick and I have both done entries for this show and will be sharing them on the blog next week.
• Atomic Sketch—Wednesday, September 2nd @ Old Library for Art walk
“The Atomic Sketch Event is an inaugural fundraising event for AIGA Jacksonville that consists of a panel of AIGA Jacksonville members who will be sketching, drawing, painting, inking, etc. —feverishly throughout the night—offering those works for sale at affordable prices, anywhere from $50 to FREE for and amazing piece of art! It’s a great place to start an epic art collection and meet some amazing designers/artists! This event is live, so come on out, watch art in its creation and support your local designers!”
• Fridge Shirts—Have the money to put in the order for shirts, and the screen is ready. Coming within the next couple of weeks.
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.
