Well, the Art in the Alley show was disappointing. After all the PR we did there wasn't much traffic. We sent out postcards redeemable for a free tote bag with the Stratford Arts Guild logo on it and not one was turned in out of 114. On the up side, the weather was bright and sunny although VERY windy with gusts that rattled the tents a couple of times. You can see pictures here.
The Krab Jab Gallery group show "30 Years of Role Playing Art" in WA was well attended. My pieces sadly didn't sell during the show, but are still available until the end of October. And speaking of October, "The Ouija Wonderful Talking Board" show, also at Krab Jab Studio, opens October 13th and will run for the month.
The piece I'm doing for the Magic: the Gathering anniversary project is going well. I took a big chance with it because I discovered a new paper that I can use oil paint on. It isn't canvas, it isn't board, it is paper. I've done some experiments and I can still use the colored pencils with it. It probably wasn't the smartest idea to do something new with such an important piece and one that has such a tight deadline, but hey. No guts, no glory right?
It has to be in Jeff Menges hands by Nov 2 so I should probably get back to the board now... More coffee first though.
