I made these bookmarks to sell at the craft show.

 

Friday October 14th was the last day of the 50/50 Pilsen (Chicago) art and craft show, and the only night for the art show. We had a lot of people there, and the show overall was a terrific event. The art show was scheduled to coincide with the Second Friday Art Walk, which happens on Halsted St. on the second Friday of the month.

I’ll be posting those bookmarks pictured up there to Etsy soon.

The big show coming up for me in October is 50/50 Pilsen, which Mandy and friends are putting together.  Last year’s show was a huge success, and we’re hoping to build up excitement for this one.  While I’ve a few ideas for the craft portion of the show, what I’ve really been focusing on is a body of work for the art opening on Friday, October 14th. These two pieces are mixed media: woodburn on basswood and birch panels, with gauche and pencil.

Here’s one of the two boxes I had created for the 50/50 Pilsen craft show.  The other sold before I could get a good photo of it.

Mini Paintings

I’ve added a few miniature paintings to my Renegade stock.  Three of them look to be the kickoffs to a new series: paintings based on metal song titles.  Here they are, each 3×3″.

Renegade Preparation

Working on some 3×3″ paintings for the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago this upcoming weekend.  I’ll post them as I’ve completed them, but nothing’s going to be for sale until the fair.  I can say though, that the theme is going to be metal song titles, and the evil they inspire.
