I'll have a few pieces in an upcoming LGBTQ art show at the Riverside Arts Center in Ypsilanti. The show aims to celebrate the contributions of LGBTQ artists and the impact of their work on the community. The opening on Friday June 1st coincides with Ypsi Pride, so head downtown and do all the things! Find more info on the opening and special events during the month of June on the RAC website.
The Joys of Toys exhibit is now available for online viewing and purchasing through Gallery1988! Curated by the awesome Cuddly Rigor Mortis, the show brought together a plethora of artists to celebrate all things Mattel.

I'm really excited to announce that I will have a piece hanging in this wonderful group exhibit curated by Cuddly Rigor Mortis. The Joys of Toys at Gallery 1988 West celebrates those classic Mattel toys that had such an impact on so many kids.
I would spend countless hours coming up with perilous scenarios for my Masters of the Universe action figures to star in. So, for this show it was only fitting that my piece center around He-Man and his amazing furry red battle briefs. I don't know what was under those things, but it always seemed a strange choice of garment for a warrior known to engage in swordplay. Maybe he just thought his rippling thighs looked good in them?

F(L)IGHT is an exhibition promoting peace through the work of over 140 artists ranging from illustrators and fine artists to animators and street artists from around the world. Each artwork in the show has a white dove integrated within it and a proportion of exhibition sales will be donated to charities War Child and Veterans for Peace.
F(L)IGHT is the idea of artist and curator Paul Roberts, who wanted to use his skills to help, insome way, those effected by the bombings in Syria last year and assist charities combatting the countless atrocities around the world. Gathering artists together, that he already knew along with people he had always wanted to work with, the exhibition idea has become reality with many well respected artists contributing bespoke artworks to the show.
War Child provide life changing support to vulnerable children whose families, schools and communities have been torn apart by war. Veterans for Peace strive to educate people about the true nature of military service and hope to convince people that war is not the solution to solve problems in the 21st century.
Every artwork in the exhibition will be on sale for £50 with 50% profit going to these charities. It is advised to arrive early on the opening reception evening to be sure to secure an artwork of your choice. Any work not sold during the exhibition will be put up in an online shop for one month only to ensure every effort is made to raise as much money as possible for the charities.

Nothing ever quite goes as it should in the suburb of Burbanville Heights. At first glance it might look like any other collection of boring pre-fab homes, but in Burbanville Heights the cupcakes have a taste for flesh, citizens are enhanced with robotic components and zombies occasionally rise up to create a hefty amount of havoc.
Hey there guys, I'm really excited to announce that I will be opening my next solo show, Burbanville Heights, on September 12th at Forage Space in Scranton, PA. This is my most ambitious show to date and will feature huge character cut out, wood assemblages and lots of other awesome new stuff. I hope to see you there!
