Along with 50 other artists, I'm participating in a show that opens tomorrow night called "Icons, Legends & Notorious Figures." I'll have my Charles Bukowski, Edith Piaf, and Leni Riefenstahl portraits for sale. Cactus Gallery is at 4534 Eagle Rock Blvd. Eagle Rock, CA 90041. There will be an opening July 12 as part of the NELAart.org Gallery Night from 7-10, and an artist's reception on July 19 from 8-11. Hope to see you there!

I'm back from a great trip to New York, including four jam-packed days at the Illustration Conference. Some highlights for me included participating in the Road Show, getting a thoughtful guided tour of the New York Times magazine, and having an informative "topical lunch" with Edel Rodriguez. There were many great speakers -- highlights included Gary Panter, Mitch Nash, Ina Saltz, and Keri Smith. But the best part was being able to catch up with old friends, make new ones, reconnect with former teachers, and meet some of my illustration heroes.
