You can now request a quote for custom illustration work directly on my website, The Inky Octopus. I'd love to hear what sort of project you're interested in having me work on!
I'm excited to be attend two upcoming art events: The Krampus Art Show & Festival, and Rag Dolls, Robots & Rocketships.
The Krampus Art Show & Festival at the Koken Art Factory is this weekend, Friday & Saturday night (6 pm - 1 am both nights). Koken will embrace the creepy, frightening and theatrical environment that represents the traditional European Christmas fairytale character, Krampus. Guests are encouraged to dress for the theme and to participate in the costume contest by wearing extravagant costumes. With wall to wall art, devilish entertainment, and live art, guests will be introduced to a new view of Christmas. Admission: $5 , but patrons that bring an unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots, will get free admission to the show! RSVP to the Facebook event here.
Rag Dolls, Robots & Rocketships is a month-long exhibition at the Foundry Art Centre. The exhibition runs Friday, December 6, 2013 – Friday, January 17, 2014. The opening reception is Friday, December 13, 2013 from 6-8 pm. The public can enjoy free food & drink along with artful conversation and observation. The artist studios on the second level of the Foundry Art Centre will also be open to the public for visiting. Admission, as always, is free. RSVP to the Facebook event here.
I'm an illustrator with an affinity for octopi. I love using watercolor and ink, and really enjoy working with the book form. View some of my story books, coloring books, and critter illustrations in my shop. Also, visit my Facebook page.
