Gallery Nucleus asked me almost a year ago now if I’d be interested to be part of their Lord of The Rings tribute show, and of course I was.
I needed to ship my painting to them by December 1st. So naturally, I waited until the very last minute to get this done.
If procrastinating wasn’t enough, I finished the first painting a little faster than I had estimated, and I had an idea for a second one. It was a very simple idea for a very simple image, I thought it would take even less time than the first painting. I ended repainting this second painting three different times. At any case, they’re both finished and shipped, and hopefully arrive at the gallery in time for the opening.
Out of the Shire opening reception is December 14, 7:00PM - 11:00PM. The show is up until January 12, 2014. If you’re in LA area, check it out!
I was invited by Joe’s Pub to come and draw one of their live performances yesterday. Luckily, my flight from LA got in just in time for me to drag myself and my suitcase from Newark Airport to Joe’s Pub so I can draw these guys. Balthrop Alabama, they were really good.
Sketching while dead tired and a little bit buzzed is a good way to get me to loosen up. It was fun to see a bunch of other people in a bar with their sketchbooks out, drawing.
I was super excited to wake up to this the other day. Didn’t get a chance to paint this till now.
Tomorrow I’m off to sunny Los Angeles for CTNx. My first time going, I think I’ll be a little overwhelmed. If anyone is going to be around, let me know!
