"Prayers From Maria"

Wow those last photos were bad, eh?

Here is my latest painting:

Slightly better.

This piece was for a auction that raised money for a organization called "Prayers From Maria" which battles against Childhood Gliomas - a deadly form of brain cancer. Please click on the link for more information and to see how you can help.

My lovely S.O. Ron (see image below) was the auctioneer.

(he's only a caveman for special occasions).

At the end, we had raised $1665 from the auction alone!

It was a good night.

Happy Birthday Harvey!!

Exciting News:
I was invited to participate in a project celebrating Harvey Pekar's 70th. 95 artists submitted Harvey portraits, and I am so honored to have been one of them!

Check out the amazing collection.... oh, and my Harvey Head is the second from the bottom :)

The collection is pretty darn awesome. The range of styles is great and there are some big names in there as well as some relatively unknowns and completely unknowns (i.e. yours truly)

Here are a few of my favorites (click on the names to visit their websites):

Sean Pryor

This is hilarious because Harvey's birthday cake was doughnut shaped and was filled with doughnuts... Harvey kept getting up from the chair where he was perched all night to grab some

Adam Roth (I am having a hard time finding a link to post... help? Anyone?)

I loooove this, the expression is perfect!

Steve Chanks

This may be my favorite one... the movement, the colors, the expression ... everything! awesome...

Tom Galambos
Doesn't really have a website, so link is to an interview

Brent Engstrom

Box Brown (a.k.a. Brian Brown)


Dan Goldman

Dean Haspiel

Jeff Smith

Um...Jeff Smith?? Nuff' Said

SOOOO.... This was pretty cool to be a part of, and to honor Harvey.
Go check out the rest of the collection! Which are your favorites?
