Claude Incognito Close Up

Claude insisted I take his photo going incognito.  He was even mistaken for Mr. Potato Head, and Feral Pig didn't recognize him at first after he got home from the art studio tour.

Claude Goes Incognito

Claude even came out of hiding to join me this weekend.  He figured that if I was Going Rogue, I could need backup in the getaway car...  So be forewarned, you may not recognize him as he's going Incognito.

Since Claude has joined me, I have posted some bonus Claude eBay listings to eBay for my 10-year art anniversary.  Please feel free to check them out at my eBay store here.

Art of the Week: Going Rogue

It's that magical time again - the Contemporary Art Museum's Open Studios event where artists all over town open their doors to the public.  I always love this event and have been really working to push the envelope in recent years with my art fair buttons, Art Is Everywhere signs and roving studio-in-my-car projects.

This year continues that trend with an unofficial, unregistered artwork called Going Rogue in which I will wear a trench coat throughout the event and flash people with framed artworks from Claude & my Monsterpieces.  Claude is even planning to come out of hiding to station himself in the getaway car.

Please be sure to also check out my 10-year art anniversary eBay auctions for July.  And as yet another 10-year anniversary bonus, I will be posting some more Claude artworks to eBay starting this weekend, so keep an eye out.

Exciting News

I have some exciting news to share.  Though I typically don't do a lot of RPG role-playing game art except as a hobby, I entered Jeff Rients' "Lamentations of the Flame Princess Art Fiasco Contest" with a couple of new pieces, one of which won the blue ribbon prize in the Pro-Am category.  I am truly honored as I know my gaming art in unconventional at best (no surprise there to those who know me, I'm sure).  You can check it out on his blog here.

I have also posted some fun bonus videos to my anniversary blog.  There's even some incriminating behind-the-scenes outtake footage.

And don't forget to enter the July raffle - there's only one day left!!!

In other news, Chuck and I are gearing up for a big performance piece for the upcoming "Man Up! No Balls About It" show organized through the Michigan Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art.  We will be doing an audience-participatory interactive performance based upon my huMAN up works during the Friday, July 20 reception at the University of Michigan's Gallery in the Duderstadt Center.

July Anniversary Raffle

It's that time again - I have listed my July raffle prize in conjunction with my ten-year art anniversary.  This month, I am raffling off one of my institutional critique pieces: entitled The Gallery Scene.  This work doubles as a fully-functional frame, and whoever wins could use it to display their own work instead of leaving it empty to focus on what goes on behind-the-scenes.

Anyway, please feel free to check it out here:

And remember, the raffle ends on July 14 at midnight, so be sure to get your entry in if you want a chance to win.  The drawing will be held and winner announced on July 15.
