Last chance to grab these pretty ladies directly from me, before shipping them off to the wonderful Rise Up Gallery in Miami. "The Fanciest Feathers" (Peacock) has sold, but the remaining three are up for grabs.
If no one claims them soon, they will be for sale later on at Rise Up Gallery!

See the full album here.
While your'e at it, check out 1AM's post about me and my piece!

Back in January, my sister and i went down to Miami for Rise Up Gallery's grand opening where my buddy David McCauley (paralyzed artist and founder of Rise Up) was an amazing host. He was a blast to hang out with, put together the greatest gallery opening, and gave us tips on all the cool places to go, eat, and drink. On our last day in Miami, he mentioned he had a thing for girls on skateboards. So my sister and i decided it would be a fun gift to give him one of my girls riding a skateboard. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do David! You rock.

I painted this for my good friend Bill Hewitt who has a collection of artwork with ninjas holding pez dispensers. Of course i went in the direction of the 1EG's and went with a skunk head after making Billiam Stinkerstench for this same friend. Because he stinks, like a skunk.

24" x 36"
Here is one of my latest commissions, which turned out to be one of my new favorites. Somber Breath is one of the largest 1EG paintings i've done, and i really LOVE working on a larger scale. I always have. For this one, i used lace around the edges, and accented my girl throughout her dress and hat.
I don't feel like the photos do this piece justice, but i hope you enjoy as much as i do! I am happy to know she has a good home.

Meet Fellow Robotipus! Fellow Robotipus is the sweetest little old man robot. A customized Lego Torch Flashlight, he stand about 8" tall. Fellow Robotpus is a content and happy little gentleman just looking for his sweetheart fembot to shower with love and gifts! I jumped out of my comfort zone for this one, robots aren't really my thing. I tried to just stick with my style rather than focusing on how to make him too robotic. I like him :)
My cute little old man will be on display at "Designing Outside The Lines", a lego-inspired show curated by James Brown at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco.
About the show:
"Most of us played with Legos as children, but some of us never stopped. The artists in “Designing Outside The Lines” are some of the most prominent Lego and toy designers around the world, spanning from the US to the Netherlands. Whether they are using record breaking amounts of Lego pieces, introducing new materials to Lego customization, combining simple minifigs with complex machinery, or anonymously installing ginormous Lego men on public beaches- they are definitely some of the most imaginative artists out there."
The show opens this Friday, April 26, 2013!

On Saturday, i finished my very first 5 mile race in my chair! My team, Team Rise Up walked, ran, and pushed to benefit Rise Up Gallery, and we raised over $5700 exceeded our target goal! It was a cold and very windy morning that we participated in the 5 mile walk/run and half marathon in Asbury Park. I was determined to push myself with no help throughout the entire 5 miles, and i succeeded. The few inclines and slanted streets were rough at times. Thanks to the slanted roads, my left arm pushed far more than my right just to keep myself moving straight, which was the only real problem i had. We were one of the lasts to finish (by far!), but i'm just excited to have done this. Until the next one!
Thank you so much to everyone who supported us! It means the world to us!

I mentioned back in February that my sister built a team to run a half marathon to raise money for Rise Up Gallery...
It's coming up! Join us this SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 2013 at the Berkley Hotel in Asbury Park for a benefit concert to support Rise Up Gallery, following the Asbury Park Half Marathon. There will be live music featuring one of Team Rise Up's runners, Maria Riggi, as well as an art auction. All profits benefit Rise Up Gallery.
We've reached our goal but there is still time to donate! Check out our site to read about our mission and donate if you so please: http://www.razoo.com/story/Running-To-Rise-Up
Thank you everyone for all the support! The organization, gallery, and people involved at Rise Up Gallery are all truly amazing.

DESIGNING OUTSIDE THE LINES

Back in December - January, i had a bunch of my customs in the Munny Makers show at Speakeasy Art Gallery. As i sadly was unable to attend, i feel even more regret of not being able to get to the show after seeing these amazing pictures. I absolutely love the colorful display of this show and i'm so happy to have been a part such a great show. Here are a few photos of the show and my pieces in the the show, borrowed from Speakeasy Art Gallery (and you can see the full album here).
