The Perfect Christmas Tree

When I was growing up the Christmas tree wasn't just a decoration sitting in the corner; it was the main event. While my sisters and I slept on Christmas Eve, Santa decorated the tree with cherished ornaments, iced sugar cookies, candy canes, ribbon candy, and popcorn balls in colorful cellophane wrappers. We saw the tree for the first time when we woke on Christmas morning and it was often difficult to decide where to look first: at the shimmering tree or at the gifts clustered beneath it's spreading branches. Once we had opened all the presents and the excitement was over for another year, the perfect tree continued to offer little gifts of sweets and treats during the entire twelve days of Christmas.

Alice Meets the Cheshire Cat

Our recent "Alice" exhibit at Century Books is like a lovely gift that keeps on giving. On the opening night of the exhibit my friend (and writer extraordinaire) Joe Taylor bought my little graphite drawing, "Alice Meets the Cheshire Cat". He found the perfect place to hang it in his home - on a wall with a framed Peanuts comic strip signed by Charles Schulz himself! I couldn't be more thrilled to be in such august company. Thank you, Joe!

Alice's Dream

Our Alice exhibit is just a memory now - all the pictures we sold have found new homes and new images have taken their place in the Upstairs Gallery at Century Books. I'm so pleased that my piece, "Alice's Dream", will be hanging in the home of my friends Sophia Bicos and Steven Corvelo. Thank you, Sophia and Steven - and thanks again to all who came out to the show!

"All Manner of Madness" - Meet the Artists Night at Century Books

We'll be back at Century Books this Saturday, October 17, from 8 - 11 pm. Last week's opening was a smashing success - we had a huge crush of people on one of the hottest nights of the year! This week should be a little less crowded and a lot cooler, so if you weren't able to make it last week or you want to stop by to chat with the artists about your favorite pieces, we'll be there with food, drink, and the fabulous music of Krys Mach.

The opening reception for "All Manner of Madness: Celebrating 150 Years of Alice in Wonderland" drew a big crowd.

All Manner of Madness: Celebrating Alice in Wonderland

I'm so happy to be taking part in this group exhibit at Century Books in Pasadena. Hard to believe that it's been 150 years since Lewis Carroll published Alice in Wonderland. His sublime nonsense has inspired countless movies, art, books, comics, and so much more. Now it's our time to be inspired by "shoes and ships - and sealing wax - and cabbages and kings”. Hope you'll join me and my fellow illustrators Steven Corvelo, Kent Culotta, and Tanya Maiboroda as we share our own take on this timeless classic on Saturday, October 10th at 8:00 p.m. If you're not able to make it to the opening, the exhibit will run from Saturday, October 10th through Friday, October 23rd at Century Books, 1039 East Green Streetin Pasadena.
