I really enjoyed my first experience at DesignerCon. So many talented people, such great energy, and so nice to meet a lot of artists at the event. I released my brushed silver Raven at an edition of ten pieces & received some valuable feedback on my work. I also had a signing with my friend "Angry Woebots," and had the chance to freestyle some stencil work into fans sketchbooks. Such a great time!! I'm really looking forward to next year!Visit the website for details about DesignerCon.

Here's progress on my custom Power Ranger. I'm turning this piece into a war raven and have started to sculpt a raven helmet, wings and casting water clear legs to raise this piece off the ground. The materials used so far are resin, magic sculpt, bondo, steel and plastic. I'm having fun working on this and will be showing more photos soon.

I'm pretty excited about this exhibit. I'll be posting progress photos of my work and look forward to traveling back to NC for this artshow..... more details soon ... Exhibition details here. Following Green Hill Center’s 2008 survey North Carolina printmakers, this exhibition continues to examine the evolution of printmaking as one of the dominant influences in today’s visual culture. The four artists brought together for this exhibition conceive works that defy the confines of a frame or matrix that is the basis of traditional printmaking and work towards a three dimensional presence in space. Through layering, Western NC artist April Flanders builds up texture in installations composed of groups of prints in which plant forms appear to overrun gallery walls like some scientific experiment gone awry. A sense of wild, yet fragile, nature is also evident in the likenesses of deer and birds by Raleigh artist Mathew Curran. The direct stencil process characteristic of urban street art, utilizing ink or red NC clay as a pigment, lends his life-size subjects a haunting presence. Charlotte artist Indrani Nayar-Gall combines intaglio processes with paper-cutting and organic materials, such as rice, in new works examining the ritual traditions of her native India. Durham artist Mark Iwinski’s “stump prints” of ancient trees taken directly from old growths utilizes printmaking as a surveyor’s tool for measuring contemporary amputations and absences.
