Well, the new year has certainly been pretty good for me so far and it's all because of my love for art. First of all, two of my pieces sold at the Carnegie Stout Library annual holiday art sale so now I can say I'm a SUCCESSFUL artist, hee hee, and the library wants to do another show featuring my art in the summer. Along with that, I have a show coming up in the Quad Cities within the next few weeks and our local paper, the Telegraph Herald published an article featuring my artwork so now the word is starting to get around about my stuff. If anything, this proves that if you get your name out there, people will notice
In other art news, I've been helping out with a community arts group here in town called the Dubuque Area Arts Collective. We're a group of artists that have been teaching and mentoring high school and college aged artists in developing their talents. Even though I haven't taught any classes myself, I have volunteered a lot of my time to the group and even made a piece for our found objects art presentation. I'm looking forward to what we have to offer next.
Not only have I been producing artwork for the gallery scene, I've been drawing more of my own characters and some fan art as well, stuff I've always wanted to do for a long time. My pic of Liz is proof of that and I hope to draw more of her and many of my other characters in the future. dtjb.deviantart.com/art/Liz-Ho… I hope to live up to everyone's expectations.
That's all for now, keep making great art.
