For the month of November, I’ve been focusing on making Splotch Monster faces from paint splotches at Splotch Monster Island .There are some great events coming up in the next couple of weeks, involving the Splotch Monster Island gang of merry misfits, including the first Monster Drawing Rally at the Greater Reston Arts Center, and the 2017 Grump arts and crafts fair in Crystal City. Make sure to check out the Splotch Monster Island blog for more information soon!

I was fortunate to get a glimpse of the Cartoonists Draw Blood exhibit yesterday at Recreative Spaces, before doing a Splotch Monster-making workshop. I'm so happy to be a part of this exhibit and project, and want to give a big shout out to Eric Gordon, Carolyn Belefski, Troy-Jeffrey Allen and the Recreative Spaces crew and fellow DC artist friends for making this happen. If you're in the Mount Rainier, MD/DC area the evening of Saturday, December 2, stop by for our official book signing event!

Kris and I had a blast at the Art Enables “Spark” event last night! It was so good to see so many good people turn out this evening. This place has a special place in my heart, so here’s to another fifteen years and beyond! In the meantime, a big thanks goes out to Grey Carter (Grey Carter Objects of Art) for inviting us out. Grey has been a tireless advocate, collector and dealer of outsider, raw, folk and visionary art for half a century, and a big supporter of Art Enables, and I highly recommend scheduling a visit to his home and gallery in McLean, VA

If you visit the Cascades Library from now, through the end of November, you can get a sneak peek at a little over half of the Endangered Kingdom series. While I’m saving the original pieces for an exhibit in DC in early 2018, these giclee prints are the next best thing. A big thanks goes out the the Loudoun County Public Library system, and the Loudoun Arts Council for inviting me to show my work, and also to my wife Kris, for helping me with everything! Look out for Kris’ art to go on display at Cascades in December, btw.
