This illustration has been on my mind for a while now. I finally made time to get it done and will be adding it to the GingerDead greeting card collection this week. I figure it’s about time I did an actual Halloween themed card.
I’m really excited to announce the Eclipse Gallery is now carrying my GingerDead cards as well as a selection of my illustrated jewelry. If you are in or around Algoma, Wisconsin check out the Eclipse Gallery. They have a show coming up that sounds really cool titled: 50 artists, 50 states, 50 mediums where, “one artist from each state will represent a different medium, bridging the gap between traditional fine art, and the applied arts, indie craft, and design fields.” The show runs from Sept 23rd thru Dec 31st. If you miss the show, I bet images will be posted to The Eclipse Gallery Photo Stream on Flickr.
Speaking of galleries, I recently stopped by a great local gallery called C Emerson Fine Arts to check out the Daniel Mrgan ‘Sick Days’ exhibit. Daniel does these amazing wood burnings that made me fall madly in love with the medium. The show was based on Daniel’s personal experiences growing up as a rather sickly child in Croatia and the countless days spent home sick, visiting doctors or being nursed with home remedies like wearing vinegar socks. This show was one of the best I’ve been to in ages. I wish I had some pics of the show but I haven’t come across much online. Here’s the flyer to give you an idea:
Here are some other examples of Mrgan’s work from his website:
See you next week!
