VS Exhibit piece.

Hey everyone, just finished wrapping up my stuff for the gallery show this coming weekend. But here are the info and directions of the event:

Opening Reception Takes Place Friday, June 5 at The Windup Space in Station North

Baltimore-based artists working in the visual entertainment fields of video games, comic books and illustration will exhibit their personal work in VS., a new gallery show at The Windup Space during the month of June. An opening reception for VS. takes place Friday, June 5 from 7-9 p.m. at the bar, music and arts venue located at 12 W. North Ave. in the heart of the Station North Arts and Entertainment District. The show closes July 31.

Each of the 14 artists in the exhibition will interpret the theme of conflict from a fine art perspective. It may be literal -- Bigfoot vs. Cookie Monster -- or conceptual -- Nature vs. Nurture.

Here is a small preview but they will be individually framed for the show (13 x 19. ) They were a lot of fun to work on and look forward to seeing everyone's work this Friday!

Hello. My name's Ashlee, and I met you at the VS exhibit yesterday. Because of my interest in children's book illustration I was particularly drawn to your work; the way you play with shapes in your design really adds life and personality to your characters, and it was great to study both the work you included in the show and the work on your blog.

It was a pleasure to speak with you, and if you have the time I'd love to hear any advice you have to offer about areas to improve in my own work, or any tips about working in the industry. Thank you!

Damn..! Everything has such fun shapes. Like the skull smoke and word bubble. So shapely! haha

I dig your new paint technique. Soft rendered forms with a crisp ass highlight

The show sounds fun. Jenecio and Mclean representing.

peace man!
