Bridge Celebration Artwalk Recap

Bridge Celebration Drawing

Last Saturday was the first Artwalk I had been some sort of part of since I took a trip to Los Angeles back in July. Unlike that Artwalk, however, this one didn’t turn into a riot.

Sign I used promoting my stuff

In all seriousness, though, I had a good time at the event, despite only selling one comic and not staying the whole time due to weather. It was very cool and windy because it was right next to the just-completed Wisconsin Ave. bridge, and later on it started to rain. Despite this, I made my presence known, and I got a few photos from the event as well.

Event Recap: Art Milwaukee Art Jamboree

Art Milwaukee recently had one of their monthly Art Jamboree’s, this time at Flux Design on Vienna Avenue, just south of Capitol Drive.

Because I took so many photos and because there is a lot to talk about, I’m going to have to put the rest of this post below the fold.

Featured Artist on, plus new portfolio stuff

If you are arriving from, or any related website, welcome. If you aren’t and have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m one of several featured artists on Art Milwaukee’s website for the month of January. Also, I will be at the next Art Jamboree at Flux Design on February 3rd, so if you want to see my art along with others’ in person, that would be the perfect opportunity to check it out.

I’ve also put up new art in my portfolio as well.
