A Show and a Signing

Hi there! I’ve been a negligent blogger lately, but in my absence I did manage to pull together a show of originals, prints, and books, which opened on Sunday. It will be up all November. And without further ado, some pictures:

The show is in a gallery space attached to a local church, so the Sunday opening time maximized on the after-church crowd. It was fantastic to meet so many new faces and see so many kids! (Oddly enough, I don’t see very many kids in my daily life. My friends need to get busy procreating already. Sheesh.) The highlight was one boy who just had to have this one as his birthday present. SO sweet!

The snowy scene from Good Fortune was the most popular print. Who would have guessed? Many people also seemed to enjoy the storyboard and sketches I displayed, since the process is something that is usually left out of shows. All in all, I’d say the day was a success!

Happy Holidays!
