AGLOW - Seep Travels to Norfolk, VA

AGLOW at Work Release - 759 Granby St. Norfolk, VA

Seep traveled from its debut at Chicago's Navy Pier all the way to the east coast, Norfolk, Virginia! If you're around, check out the opening at the new N.E.O.N. District - an arts revitalization that is making a big buzz!

Seep: Double Your Donation today!

The Great Pink Neon OOZE is well on its way! I have drawn the full-size template for the work and the glass is currently being "bent" by master benders John Noga and Tom Brickler at The Neon Shop! Seep is being built in 22 individual 7 foot segments and the entire work utilizes 5 separate electrical transformers! I am super happy and so excited to have all of your support (Seepport) on this truly gigantic project.

Final Days to See "Plop Art"

Hello everyone!

This is the final week to go see my solo show, Plop Art. Luckily, the show is open from 8am to 9pm each day until Saturday (closed Sunday) in the Dickson Building on bucolic prairie-and-parking lot-style campus of Waubonsee Community College. Take a roadtrip to the western reaches of Chicagoland for some midsummer cicada-listening, and stay for Plop Art. Special thanks to Cecilia Vargas, who curated the show and took a chance on my work.

Arcade Brewery Taphandles Released!

Early this year, I produced a limited edition set of custom taphandles for the amazing new craft beer-makers in town, Arcade Brewery, that were then painted by artists across the City. Check it out!
