For the month of October these bad boys will be hanging at Front Street Coffeehouse in Salem MA, for their Halloween themed art show. Salem in October is such a great time of year, and I'm excited to be a part of it again! Last year I vended at the Bizarre Bazaar, and while I don't have that opportunity again this year, it's great to be involved even in a small way.
It's even better because the pieces weren't even hanging for 24 hours before they all sold!

I truly love making these pieces, and running this little business, so when something like this happens it helps keep me encouraged, and keep me going.
Last Thursday was PEM PM - Artopia at the Peabody Essex Museum. It was such a great night! I worked with Creative Salem to run a table and do another live art demo.
Instead of creating another skull, I decided to do a special logo piece for Creative Salem.
Of course, the piece is nowhere near being done, but it's going to be awesome when it is! Instead of simply stitching the logo as its usual yellow and purple, I'm going to make it all sorts of funky colors, and really psychadelic looking. Once again, the response was amazing!

Today was the Salem Chamber of Commerce Bizarre Bazaar (Biz Baz for short) and it was quite an amazing experience! Here I am set up at the incredible Creative Salem booth. Despite the typical rainy New England fall weather it ended up being a busy day.
This was the first time since college that I've publicly displayed my art, and the first time I've done a live art demo. I am so glad I did it! The response to my pieces was so encouraging, and I hope to have more oppotunities like this. It's definitely given me the courage to show off my work more and try to submit to some local shows.
For the demo I decided to not make another sugar skull and ended up starting another pattern piece. I've worked on it a bit more since the Biz Baz, and it's looking great! I'm estimating it will be done in a...
