Big exciting things!


Two big exciting things just happened. Even more exciting than the time I went to see Sea Monsters 3D (above).

1. Christine Domanic and Danielle Maveal have opened a new gallery in Brooklyn, NY called Fact & Fancy and they invited me to be in their very first show "Wet Paint". Holy Woah! I just sent out six pieces and I am tremendously happy and honored to be in this show.

2. To my extreme delight, Etsy has chosen me to be one of three designers competing in this round of their "Design face-off". My task is to make a new official Etsy merchandise design that will go on tshirts and things. I'm nervous! This is really big!

I have been doing a lot of spinning in my chair and squealing with glee because of these two opportunities but I've got to get serious now and start sketching because the face-off deadline is very close. I can't breathe!

Congrats! You should sneak a bunny somewhere in your Etsy design. Regardless of my own bunny bias, I am excited to see what you draw up!
