Upcoming Shows

Trying to catch up on my updates! 

Here are two upcoming shows i'm thrilled to be a part of, two of which are curated by the talented Chogrin

First is 8 Bit and Beyond 2 at Bottleneck Gallery opening in a little over a week.  Happy to be in this, seeing as one of the first shows i was a part of with Chogrin (and The Autumn Society!) was the 8 Bit and Beyond back in 2009.  Check out my piece from back then here :) 


And second comes a new show featuring the good old classic Popeye! 



Lastly, i'll be a part of POPzilla's BURTON show!  As a huge Tim Burton fan, and tremendously influenced by him and his work, i am thrilled for this.  Really looking forward to making some fun pieces for this one.



Keep a look out for my pieces for these shows in the coming weeks !

Also there's a few more shows i'll be participating in, which i'll be announcing shortly

Derp, Meeps, and Sluggo

Recently i went back to playing around with paint only on my custom toys.  I'd much rather sculpt first, but these are fun to try every once in a while.  Below are two 4" Mini Munnys.

Derp (teal) is still for sale, but Meeps and Sluggo (pink) is sold!
Email if interested Kctararuj@gmail.com

Derp will also be for sale this Sunday at the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market!

Birdcage


This is the first skate deck i've ever painted.  I always thought skate decks were a really neat platform to paint on so i was very excited to be invited to be a part of "Artists on Board" with ArtDeckCo  I'm amazed how many awesome artists are participating and i would love to see each and every one in person.  
Here is the info for the show, on May 31-June 1:

Daniel Deathroll


 Meet Daniel Deathroll!  Daniel is my third of three 3D monocle men made for my show at Blend Bar, and my personal favorite.  I love everything about this piece, especially his name (made up by the brilliant love of my life who had endless good names/titles for me to steal).  What makes Daniel especially special is his teeth.  They are real alligator teeth, which were not the easiest to paint around.  I'm so happy with the colors on this guy and just adore the frame.  Hate to sound full of myself haha but he is just one of my top personal favorites at the moment.  I was both happy and sad to see him sell on the opening night!

Patrick Pinkpants


Meet Patrick Pinkpants!  Patrick is my second of three monocle men for my show at Blend Bar.  Originally planned to be a head shot only, but i loved the idea of that tiny little body and thin dinky legs poking out the bottom.  I love the colors on this guy and the frame just completed him.

Bobby Bamboobelly



Meet Bobby Bamboobelly!  Bobby is one of three new 3D portraits of handsome young men made for my show at Blend Bar.  I love the idea of doing head shots of some Kritters with silly little faces, made officially fancy by adding some monocles.  Bobby is slightly based off one of my favorite Kritter paintings, Sugartooth from 2010.  I was given this frame by my sister, which looks so much like bamboo that naturally i had to paint a panda to put in it. It's a shiny(ish) silver frame so i made all of Bobby's accessories silver: his bowtie, monocle, and chain.  Had a blast sculpting and painting that dumb derpy face and was excited to find he sold after the opening at Blend.

Charles

Meet Charles.  Charles is so tired of being so beautiful.  He wishes people would see behind the feathers and realize he's actually kind of a grump.  He wants to be loved for who he is, not those gorgeous glowing feathers of his!
