I might have mentioned I had a couple children’s books published (hee hee) but I am also a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and there is a Southwest chapter right here in San Antonio! Well, I recently had a chance to attend an awesome workshop they put together for our chapter here at the University of Incarnate Word. Our Regional Advisor Ms. Lupe Ruiz-Flores was the speaker on the topics of book launches, school visits, and beyond. It was a great time and I even connected with a couple awesome authors while I was there. Thanks to all who helped put it together! (oh, and there I am in the far back on the left, I’m the tall dark figure lol.)
HijoleSa had their monthly first Friday show and this month it was “Habitats”. I was pleased to be able to join the other artists in their show with my painting (a commission piece I happened to be working on and not for sale) A lot of gallery goers were heard saying things like: “ah man, not for sale”… sorry folks this baby has a home already!
I was recently invited to join a group of other local artists at their collective studio/gallery downtown at the Blue Star Arts Complex in San Antonio! The studio, located in the upstairs section of the complex is called HijoleSA and I couldn’t be more honored and excited to share this space with these great artists.
I’ll be working hard in the coming months to produce some more art so stay tuned if you would like to see what’s going on. I already have a commission piece underway which I’m working on right now and have another one right behind it!
Did a triceratops use a toothpick? Did a pterodactyl need fluoride?
A big thanks to author Patrick O’Donnell for allowing me the pleasure to work on the illustrations for his book, “Did Dinosaurs Have Dentists?” Also available on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, and most major retailers on September 28th. I really had such a blast working on it.
