Hey San Antonio peeps! Really excited to share this event with y'all! First show of the year I'll be participating in and it's going to be the first time I show work in SA. A few of us Laredo artists submitted some work so I'm really happy to be showing alongside some of my buddies and alongside new folks. If you love Wes Anderson, you totally should check out the show! If the weather is all good, I'll be there so it'd be really cool to meet some of y'all! Family friendly event so invite everyone you know. Hope to see you there!
(The original piece and prints will be for sell for a month at the gallery/shop so if you can't make it out that night and want to scoop one up, you'll still have a chance!)
Sketchbomb's annual Play, toy-themed art show, is back again! I'll have another munny piece up. Sadly I won't be here since I'll be in San Antonio watching Tears for Fears live! But don't let that deter you. There are so many awesome pieces done by local Laredo artists and there will also be free screenprinted shirts provided by AR Graphics! Family-friendly so there's no excuse that you need to find a sitter. ;)
I won't be in Austin yet for this event but if you want to see my latest print in person before they get shipped out to the other printmakers who participated in this print trade, here's your chance! One of them will also be for sale to help support PrintAustin. Definitely check it out and all the awesome PrintAustin events. All printmaking shows and workshops throughout January and February! For more info. and the list of events, visit their website: www.PrintAustin.org
I'll be having 3 pieces in this show! I won't be able to make it to the show but there's a lot of great art work and I encourage y'all to go check it out. (I was able to swing by the gallery before show time and it looked great!)
Val, the owner of Caffe Dolce, invited me and another artist to put together a Halloween art show. I'll be displaying my mini Universal Monster prints along with a bunch other of local artists of all ages. BYOB for 21+ so bring your own Boos and Booze! Family friendly and there's even a costume contest. Most of the artwork is for sale and there's an open kitchen so bring some extra cash to help support local!

Phantasmagoria will feature all that goes bump in the night such as ghosts and ghouls and other stranger things such as sci-fi extraterrestrial life forms and aliens.

Also going on is BinFest where local (and nonlocal) printmakers package up their work and put it in bins to sale and there will be printing demos. Basically fun for the whole family!
