New Works & Crayon Commissions

I have some new works available on my website.  Please go check it out.

I've also received a lot of emails inquiring about the carved crayons.  I do take commissions on crayon carvings, they start at $350USD for single colored crayons and up to $600USD for multicolored crayons with highly complex designs.  The turn around is about one week for 1-3 single colored crayons, this is not including shipping time.  It may take longer depending on what is requested.  I usually work from the Crayola 64 pack and the bright "fruity" colors work best.  I like to have a good face pic and an overall body shot of my subjects for proportion and clothing reference.  I love special or unusual requests, I see them as a good challenge.  Feel free to contact me if you have any inquiries.

Union (42)
I have a current show at SHOWstudio Shop in London.

September 8th - November 5th, 2011

"The Cafe," an exhibition centered around coffee culture and cafe society in fine art, fashion and film. The show examines our enduring fascination with the culture of café.  The SHOWstudio Shop has transformed their gallery into an actual coffee shop for the duration of the exhibition. They will also include artworks that intrinsically take up the subject of the café at their core as they set out to both present a slice of history as well as examine coffee culture today.  Curated by Carrie Scott.

Hello everyone, I'm sooooo sorry for the lapse in posting.  Hopefully I'm back on the blogging horse again.  I'm very excited to be a part of Push Stitchery, curated by Jamie Chalmers (a.k.a.

Push Stitchery - me
There I am!  There are 6-8 images from each artist along with bio's and a Q&A section.  The print quality is great and I love how it's bound.  I have a thing for books that open flat.
