Driving a truckload of art out to Great Falls, MT tomorrow morning to hang my show, Thinking Room at the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art. It's been fun and challenging getting this show together. It's the last show of my 30s!

The Missoula Independent's 3rd annual comics issue is out today. Very happy that this has become a tradition.

This Werewolf is taking a bath in honor of the final group show at the beloved Brink Gallery in Missoula, MT. After next month, they will be closing their doors. I had the honor of doing a solo show there this past December ( Future Celebration) and they were excellent to work with. The gallery will be much missed! This piece and two others of mine are on display for the rest of April alongside so many great artists.
This is one of 3 pieces I have in a group show that opens tomorrow night (April 1st) at The Brink Gallery at 111 Front Street in Missoula, MT. It's their second to last art show. Sad to see one of my favorite galleries closing.
