Fur Ball fundraiser for Kitten Rescue in L.A.
A purr-fect fit. That was the reaction to the invite from the Kitten Rescue Fur Ball to present one of my creations as part of their 25th anniversary in L.A. In “Mirror, Mirror, Who is the Feral of Them All”, I remarked a giclée from my Blue in the Face series that explores a pet… Continue reading Fur Ball fundraiser for Kitten Rescue in L.A.
Fast, blue times at Rockabilly High
A highlight of any year is the The Red Hot & Blue Rockabilly Festival — the high energy assembly of music, fashion and fast times of the 50s and early 60s.

Revisting childhood chums
This year, in support of the Niagara Artists Centre Small Feats art show, I am calling on a few old friends. In the painting iToons, I revisit cartoon icons from childhood that never really lost their appeal. Another early influence — nature’s innocent and strong figure of a deer — continues to intrigue. The painting… Continue reading Revisting childhood chums
B&W movies were true blue
The way-back machine has been been working overtime in my studio. Buzzkill, Deadpan Delivery and Crime of Fashion emerged from a twisted trip through 1940s movie posters. Sea No Evil and its 3-D sister, Gillzilla vs. InstaGamera, surfaced after a voyage through B movie horror flics from the 1950s. In the 1960s, late night TV… Continue reading B&W movies were true blue
