Holiday Gift Giving Ideas

It's been a while since I updated. I've been busy working on a few pieces for a couple of shows, and drawing Danger Country #2. Here's some info on some inexpensive new LJ drawings and paintings.

First off, I have a couple of pieces in the Grab N Go show at Neon Forest gallery in Orlando, Florida. Every piece in the show is $100 and it's cash and carry, so you can have it in time for hanging above your christmas stockings.

December 11th 2010 – January 06th 2010
Neon Forest Proudly Presents: “THE GRAB-N-GO SHOW”
A group show featuring works of art for $100 or less

Featuring the artwork of:
Mildred, Pacolli, Sergie Loobkoff, Jeremy Kennedy, Blake Marquis, Mat Curran, Dres13, Scott Donald, Sean Hartman, Dustin Orlando, Grayson Castro, Chris Musina, Scott Lefavor, Jeff Dekal, Plinio Pinto, Brandon Mclean, Jay Bellichi aka 53, Dennis Hansbury, Johanna O’Donnell, Alex Yanes, Jason Cullsion, Adrian Halpern, John Mulder, Sarah Blacksher, L2 Design, Anna Bond, Will Gay, Daniel Williams and more…

The exhibit features up to 100 individual pieces of art, all being sold for $100 or less. The buyer is allowed to grab the art they purchase and take it with them that same night… hence Grab-n-Go! This event is a fantastic and low cost way to give original art as a gift or to start a collection of your own.

Doors open at 7:00pm – Midnight
No Cover! All Ages Welcomed

On the same day, on the other side of the country in Los Angeles, I'll have several pieces in the Post-It Show 6 at the Giant Robot gallery. This is the second time I'm in the show and I tried hard to make some pieces that would stand out in the horde of beautiful post-its wallpapering the gallery.

Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as an online equivalent.

An opening reception featuring many of the artists will take place from 6:30 - 10:00 on Saturday, December 11. For more information about the show, GR2, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact: 

Finally, don't forget the Fork Frenzy shop, which features several prints and books by yours truly. Order by December 17 to receive it in time for Christmas!
