Thank you to everyone who stopped by Strange Folk Festival at St. Louis Union Station this past weekend! It was nice seeing some fans, and meeting some new ones. The setting was quite unique; we enjoyed our booth spot by the pond.
I enjoyed stopping by the current art exhibit at Barnes-Jewish Hospital today!
My illustration, Octopus & Yo-Yos, was chosen for this exhibit, along with the work of 15 other local artists. This installation is available to view 24 hours a day, in the hallway adjacent to the South Lobby of the main campus of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The exhibit will be open through June 11, 2015. You can learn more about Joy here.
I had a great time at Paint Webster this past weekend. I was really impressed with all of the work from the over 100 artists that participated this year; it was really inspiring!
I had such fun at Neiman Marcus this past weekend! Guests were invited to bring along their dogs to the CUSP event on Saturday, and I had the opportunity to do some marker sketches of them. Here are a few of the sweet dogs I met.

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.
