such as flowers or beans

enjoy and brush 4 times an hour

Girls of Tomorrow

Here's something new I drew lastnight while talking to my brother on the phone
I'm a man of 2 daughters a sister and a mother
with my Art Partner by my side and my Black cat close by
I realize how important the girls of today and tomorrow are
and that not too long ago they didn't have the same rights that they deserve

this original work of art is on torn paper and is mixed medium on top of it
it's currently available for $45 postpaid


"To all the Girls of tomorrow
make sure you care about today and think about the next

without you their is nobody -for you are the mothers of this planet
but don't let that stop you from living out your dreams
for without you doing great and amazing things the world doesn't change

Thank you for being beautiful and thank you for bringing more peace then chaos"

Gallery Shows and Conventions

At times it can be hard to keep up with the blogs, facebook,twitter,websites, emails and all that stuff
there should be an easier way to do it all - but then I have another company too.

But This summer I've had a decent break with the help of my Penn State Intern Kale
He's been doing a great job so far and I'm grateful to have him on board for the summer

The next show is July 8th at Saints and Sinners Gallery
Then we got San Diego Comic Con , Otakon in Baltimore - Chicago Comic Con in August

FolkFest and Dragon Con in Atlanta -and then the fall shows like NYC Comic Con

I don't have any other gallery shows booked in yet - so that gives me time to manage it all.

Realeasing 4 new products this summer - Miko and Cola Plush , the Gooli Bag and Scantron Robot Plush -

Crazy busy but busy is good - it's going to be a heck of a summer - and will feel good come Christmas when I might take a half day off hah

thanks for all your support, love and respect

best to all of my fans…

Moving forward

I'm excited for the summer with all the great shows going on
First one is Monster Mania in Hunt Valley Maryland June 3-5th
then I fly out to Las Vegas for my 3rd year in a row of going to the LICENSE EXPO
that's a huge show and I'm looking forward to making some new license deals

Then we have the Philadelphia Comic Con - all 3 of those shows are in June , so it's mega packed

the rest of the summer and fall are getting booked up with shows too
