Here's a shirt I've been thinking about for quite awhile now:

T-Shirt Thursday, Round 10

Ever since I did the metalflake seahorse painting for the agent last winter, people have been expressing interest in the design. It occurred to me recently that the design would make a great t-shirt:


And as usual, you can find it right here in my RedBubble store.

Thoughts on the Dino Show, and a Question.

All sorts of fun things going on here in preparation for the next art show in October. You may have already seen the t-shirts and the new calendar, but there are also 18 new metalflake paintings in the works. Right now they're scattered all around my studio, in various states of completion.

Here's a sneak peek:




We've got paintings as small as 3x4 inches, and as large as 20x20. Some will have designs based on the illustrations in my calendar, and some will have designs that are just rough concepts at the moment (hey, there's still plenty of time). Just the other day, for example, the Agent and I were talking and she suggested doing paintings based on dinosaur fossils.

Clearly she's a genius, because this opened up whole new areas of creativity for me. This T-Rex skull design is already on a t-shirt, but on a metalflake painting I think it'll blow people's minds:


I've also got an idea in mind that involves revamping the whole metalflake technique so it's even more three-dimensional. But that may have to wait for another show.

There may also be some other dinosaur-related merchandise available, but that's still top-secret for now. Mum's the word.

While I've got your attention, what's your favourite dinosaur?

DINOSAURS.

For your consideration:


Facebook event page is here, and in case you're not on Facebook:

Whether you love the ferocity of the mighty T-Rex or the docile nature of the brachiosaurus, dinosaurs hold a special spot in most of our hearts. As a child we were fascinated by these ancient creatures and for many of us, the fascination never died. 
It certainly didn't for artist Bret Taylor and he is celebrating them with an art show of earth-shaking proportion. 
So join us on Oct 13th and celebrate all things dinosaur. The show starts at 2pm and is kid friendly until 8pm, at which point we invite the over 19 to stay and celebrate with us. There will be dinosaur art and dinosaur collectibles, you may even find a few snacks for both carnivore and herbivore. Non-alcoholic refreshments will be available and should you choose to indulge in an adult drink or two, you are more than welcome to bring your own, but remember that until 8pm this is a child friendly show.  
For more information on the artist: http://howyadoingraphics.com 
Kid and adult friendly show 2pm - 8pm
Afterparty (adults only) 8pm - midnight
Imagemaker Photographic Studio, 210-2075 Yukon Street, Vancouver 

Thanks as always to my agent, who continues to amaze and astound me with her knowledge, skills and attention to detail.
