Gil Elvgren Tribute Show “All Pinned Up”

When it rains, it pours during. February is turning out to be pretty busy with the art shows. It’s a good “problem” to have. This one is a tribute to pin up artist Gil Elvgren, “All Pinned Up”. If you are in the neighborhood on February 8th, stop by Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim and enjoy our opening reception. We will have a bunch of artists showing their take on the works of Elvgren. As usual, I will wait and premiere my piece as we get closer. But put it in your calendar, hope to see you there. And thanks to Amy for letting me participate!

Chogrin & Bottleneck present “1984”

1984 show poster

If you happen to be in the NY area February 7th I am jealous. Because that means you can attend the Opening Night Reception of the “1984” show, by Chogrin and Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn. Hard to believe how many movies are celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year. When you look at the list of flicks that came from 1984, it’s almost all of the 80’s greats. It’s even harder to pick a movie to do a piece on for this show. This is my 2nd show I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of in New York, the other one was the fabulous “3Nes” show, also at Bottleneck. I’ll wait and premiere the movie I picked and my piece as we get closer to the show.┬áThe suspense is terrible, I hope it lasts.

 

Jolly Hipster Holiday

This was definitely a Poppins filled winter, mostly due to “Saving Mr Banks”. (which was AWESOME) And I am always down to do something based on her. It’s one of the movies I was raised on. You know, Caddyshack, Blues Brothers, Cheech and Chong and…. Mary Poppins. I came up with the idea to see something with Mary and Bert in a modern day world, throw in a little hipster and this was the out come. And naturally I wanted to try to squeeze in as many references from the film in as possible. Hence the kite, bird, umbrella, chalk, penguin socks, etc. And sorry P.L. Travers, in my version Bert and Mary DO have the hots for each other.

Hope you like it.
