Art Clayworks Spring 2012 reception will be May 4th from 6-7:30 pm, located in the UA Ceramics Studio in Tucson. Along with the show, there will also be a sale to benefit the ceramics program at the University of Arizona. It’s really a great way to pick up some inexpensive pieces, like bowls & mugs, handmade by some ridiculous talented humans.
These are some of my pieces that will be featured & up for sale. I love ceramics. It is so much easier for me to draw or paint out an idea or story, but clay encourages me to approach solutions differently. Through my classes, I have realized that illustration can reach across a broad range of media & I really do love telling a narrative through clay.
Hope you can make it out to the show,
I’ll post more info in the next few days.
I’m showing my senior project in the BFA Exhibit–
I decided to combine illustration & history to create an A to Z of inspiring women after realizing that my little sister & her friends couldn’t name five inspirational women from the past. A lot of young people’s role models come from pop culture and I wanted to make something that could be placed in an Elementary classroom to bring interest to these forgotten yet amazing women.
It’s all taking place in the Student Union Gallery, which is located on the 3rd floor of the University of Arizona’s Memorial Union. It runs from April 19th to the 26th. All of the School of Art’s graduating artists have something being shown, so it is definitely worth checking out. There is so much talent in my class.
I’ve read this book at least ten times.
It’s one of my favorites books
& just so happens to be one of my favorite pieces.
Watercolor & ink
is one of the best combinations.
I’ll eventually work it into a book jacket
but I’m still figuring out the hand-written lettering.
Revamping the site…
after an extended hiatus.
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day.
Huge thank you is due to Ryne who is making this all possible.
Check out his portfolio. He’s a pretty big deal.
In the mean time…
If you’re up for an adventure,
I have a couple of pieces in the 36th Annual Viscom Show…
including Marie Antoinette is a Vampire Slayer.
Go check it out at the Joseph Gross Gallery
on the University of Arizona campus.
It’s right next to the School of Art
on Park & Speedway.
The show closes on the 29th of February,
so hurry in. There is really amazing work from some super talented illustrators & designers. It’s definitely worth checking out!
I’m currently working on some portraits of King Henry VIII & his six wives! Can’t wait to show them in-progress.
