Earlier this month was the Bad Robot + Gallery 1988 gallery exhibit dedicated to celebrating the works of the film and tv company Bad Robot. I did a piece based on the tv show Lost and have received requests for a print version of my original painting. We heard you and teamed up to make a limited edition high quality print of my Lost piece!
It is now currently available at Gallery 1988: here

I just wanted to say thank you to the folks who came out last night for the Spring Craftacular event here in Lincoln. It's always great to see some familiar faces and meet new people. Here's a few photos from last night.
Here's Meghans and my table setup. It was nice to have the windows behind us to use the little ledge.
I've been wanting a new way to display my cards and I found an Etsy seller Wudls that makes lots of great displays for craft shows. That's where I got the three tier card stand that folds up.
Also new for this year I had the Square app to accept credit card payments through my phone. It was way easier to use than I thought and wished I had gotten it sooner!
Artwork by Meghan Stratman.
Beautiful bird collages, postcards, and prints by Meghan. I always love seeing her new work. Check out her shop here.
This Wednesday, May 8th is the first ever SPRING Craftacular! I've participated with at the Winter Craftacular for several years now and am excited to have more of these handmade events here in Lincoln. I will be selling new prints, spring themed cards, and have a few original works there too.
Here is the flyer with all the dates, locations and times, and keep in mind that the first 30 people get a free swag bag at the door with lots of goodies (people were lined up way in advance for these last time!)
I will once again be sharing a table with the talented Megan and we'll have twice the art awesomeness! Our table is located up front and to the right when you walk in the door.
I started today with a surprise in my inbox - my guy had commissioned the wonderful Mary Cagle to do a portrait of me! Mary has an online comic Kiwi Blitz, does artwork for The Trenches and coloring for Table Titans. Needless to say she is awesome and I couldn't be more thrilled that she did a Chibi version of me!!!
Mary also did a digital painting of our pup Toshi!
I believe that Mary is still taking commissions, check out her tumbler site for more details!
This spring was long coming, with random snowstorms and a winter that overstayed it's welcome. This piece is an ode to the flowers to come, the bees to buzz, and for the green things to once again cover our world.
Tonight is the opening reception to Starter Art - Affordable art show where all works are $100 or LESS at Bear and Bird Boutique + Gallery in Lauderhill Florida. Over 28 artists will have work on display, and I will have three original mini paintings in the show.

When asked to participate in the Bad Robot show at Gallery 1988, I knew right away that I wanted to depict Lost. It came out when I was in college and it was a weekly event for my friends to get back to the dorm and watch the latest episode of Lost. I dropped off after a few seasons, but recently watched show in it's entirety on Netflix. Needless to say when it was over, I had a "whaaa?" moment and had to get on the Lost forums and try to figure out the ending.
I decided to feature Jack and Vincent (the dog) because of how the show ended, but I think of all the characters I really like Hurley the best. I loved how all this crazy stuff was happening in the show and he was still a pretty upbeat guy.
