RAW: The Blend

The Shadow Farm at RAW: Indianapolis

 Quite an interesting event. I haven't heard an official count, but would gues that over 1500 attended RAW's premier in Indianapolis. I had a great time meeting other artists and talking about my work. It was amusing that many couldn't find words to describe my off-beat characters and their stories. The most common comparison was "It reminds me of Tim Burton's work." I take this as quite a compliment since I have always been such a fan. Below is just a sampling of some of the work presented by other artists...enjoy!

Don't forget to smile...

Putting the final touches on my display for tonight's RAW showcase. After I cleared the bench this guy remains unfinished in a very preliminary state but served as a useful reminder to myself....Don't forget to smile tonight even though the thought of being out of my shop, dressed up, and mingling with people freaks me out more than the creepy things that inhabit the dark corners of my mind.

deep breaths, calming thoughts ( and perhaps a nap in the hammock this afternoon).
