Hi guys.

I don't know if you all saw the paintings I was posting, but the show I was preparing them for has now opened! It was a huge honor to picked by the gallery to do this. IT opened up all kinds of oppurtunities for me.. I have to say as well that I have never been so tired as I was working on this thing. Many a long day and night. The next day I went back to check out the show, minus all of the craziness from the actual opening. It was insanity opening night. Very busy.

And finally me sporting my awesome "lost" t-shirt with the blast door map from the second season on it. I'm a geek at heart.

Wow wow indeed! The paintings look really good! Did you say you've posted them here before? I'll have to find that thread.

Thanks everyone!

Flardyhead- There are shows for cartoonists. I've not seen any in my area of the world, but Nucleus seems like they showcase that kind of art.

I recieved this show as an invitation from the gallery that shows my work, Bungalow Artworks in Jacksonville, FL. They basicaly just called me and asked if I was interested in doing a split show with another painter from the area.

JP- Here are the topics I posted on a couple of the paintings.

Found them! But thanks. I especially like the girl staring out of the window. The portrait of your father is really nice too.

The show was great man, I'm going back this weekend with Emily.

All the paintings came out really well. So did you shmooze any clients?? ;)

JP- Thanks! Yeah the one of the girl looking out the window is my wife actually. She's a hottie 8)

Josh- Thanks for coming out to it. Let me know what youthink when you and Emily head over there. I actually did talk to a lady for ten minutes about a commission. We'll see what happens. I've had a few print sales and the gallery bought one of the pieces (the Biltmore piece). So far its been a pretty good week.
