Wonder Woman Day '08 In Flemington

Back on October 25th, I was in Flemington, NJ at Comic Fusion for Super Hero Weekend. This was the day before Wonder Woman Day '08. I was set up doing sketches for those that came into the store that day to buy some raffle tickets and place bids on the artwork donated for this year's charity auction. I got to hang out with James Fiorentino, an amazing sports/entertainment portrait painter and, of course, The Flash and Harley Quinn. Stacy made sure we were watered, fed and out of the rain. As always I had a great time hangin' out with everyone at Comic Fusion. Here are some of the sketches from that day...

"It Came from Hoboken" Opening

My opening night of "It Came from Hoboken" took place this past Saturday and I think the whole evening went great. Blu-Violet looked fantastic. The turnout was very good...there seemed to be a constant flow of people through the door the entire evening. The food and drink was excellent (Thanks, Travis). The most important part of the opening though was that I got a chance to meet and talk to a lot of really kool people.

My paintings were very well received and more than a handful of people expressed interest in getting their hands on a "Lactose Intolerance" t-shirt. Those should be making their way to the store in the next couple of weeks. In addition, I was beyond flattered that Cheryl, one of the Blu-Violet people and an artist herself, reinterpreted one of my images as a sculpture (see the pic further down in the post). Directly below is "Tiki Mug", which made its debut at the show.

I sincerely want to thank Carolyn for bringing my paintings in for a show at her store/gallery. I had a really great time. If you didn't have a chance to make it out for the opening, the show will be open for at least the next 2 months, so you still have plenty of time to stop by Blu-Violet.

As always I have to thank my wife, Wendy for helping me in so many ways in getting ready for my shows. She's the best!
