New OZ Children's books in the works


Recently I've signed on to illustrate 2 books by Roger Baum who is the great grandson of Frank Baum who wrote the Wizard of Oz. The two books that I'm working on are Oz books and the first book is a Christmas story. The Christmas book should be available sometime this Nov/Dec. I've attached the cover illustration and a sample illustration that was done.

Dia de los Muertos painting and Saturday's Art-a-thon pics


Saturday's Art-a-thon was a big success raising almost $1900 for new studio spaces in the Art Factory 417. Don't know if I'll ever paint for 12 hours straight again into the wee hours of the morn but got to work beside many great Springfield artists. Above is the finished painting which I finished in 12 hours and will be displayed at the Lemon Drop gallery on Commercial for the 1st Friday Art Walk next month. Below are progress pics through the night that were taken by Meganne Rosen O'Neal

Art Factory 417 Art-A-Thon - 12 hours of creativity

Hey everyone,

This Saturday July 17th I'll be participating in the Art Factory's Art-A-Thon from 6pm to 6am. The event features local artists who will come together for an evening of creativity. Since I'm participating it's required for me to secure pledges for the evening and if you wish to support the artist community please pledge money for the hours that I paint or a flat rate. The highest bidder will receive the painting that I'm working on for the night or your painting of choice equal or lesser value to the one being painted. Since I'm volunteering 12 hours of my time and a painting it would be great to get as many pledges as possible. The money will go toward new studio space in the art factory and give more artistic opportunities for the creative people of Springfield.

The public is invited to the Art Factory to watch the event and photos will be routinely updated on the website for the internet audience. The work that is done on Saturday will also be featured @ the lemondrop gallery for the August Friday Artwalk!

You can pledge directly to me or also pledge via e-mail at pledge@artfactory417.org

Burlesque Life Drawing - 07-06-2010


Tuesday night I ventured out of my safe and normally controlled environment and ventured into the realm of the Burlesque where ordinary women dress in outlandishly complex and seductive lingerie ensembles. For those of you who have not heard of or don't know what burlesque is here's a quick definition.

burlesque -
  • a theatrical entertainment of broad and earthy humor; consists of comic skits and short turns (and sometimes striptease)
  • spoof: make a parody of; "The students spoofed the teachers"
  • parody: a composition that imitates or misrepresents somebody's style, usually in a humorous way
The first 2 sketches are 20 min drawings followed by a 10 minute drawing. Then the last 2 are quick 5 minute drawings. Planning on visiting again in 2 weeks to do more Burlesque drawings 

The model is from Springfield's Cherry Bomb Burlesque and the drawing session is every other Tuesday at  The Art Factory 417 located at 1303 W. College, Springfield, MO from 8 to 10pm. The cost is $7 at the door.
