Canvas For A Cause

Here's my contribution to Canvas For A Cause that will be this Thursday at Reel FX. My other paintings are posted on my website, enjoy!

Here's some more info. If you're in the Dallas area, come stop by for the show tomorrow and check out the studio! All of the pieces are $60, so it's all surprisingly affordable, and it goes to a good cause.

Reel FX is hosting the 2nd annual A Canvas for a Cause charity art event one week from now on Thursday, April 1st from 7-10 pm which will again benefit Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. 100% of the proceeds will go to Children’s Child Life Program which is a great cause that helps make the kids’ lives better while they are being treated. All art is $60 and is done by locally and nationally known artists from Reel FX and our friends, partners etc… This year, there is also a silent auction portion where select photography and art will be available for bidding. There will be really cool art and a fun evening for a good cause. We will have apps and wine as well! We hope you can join us for this event.
Hope to see you there

Spy Collage

Here's the latest edition to the Collage Series, based on the topic/concept "Spy." As I was developing the idea, I was searching for newspaper articles and came across one that gave this illustration a whole new meaning. Article was on "The Housewife Who Spied for Russia."

Also, there are two treatments, one solely dedicated to the story, and one that was a graphical experiment with texture and elements.
