WonderCon, Monsterpalooza and the Lucky Bladwin Monument.

Hey there everybody (or just you, the one person reading this). Coming up are some very cool things that I'll be attending and being part of. First up, WonderCon. Next weekend (Mar. 29, 30, 31), I'll be attending down in Anaheim. I'm not exhibiting there, but if you know what I look like, you might see me walking the floor of the show, as I look for work and make new contacts. I'm excited about this one, as it's the second year it's in Anaheim, and it'll be my first year attending. I think it'll be a fun experience.

Then, on April 9th, the lucky Baldwin Monument will be placed in it's permanent home in the City of Arcadia. This will also be a fun and exciting experience, as I watch the piece get lifted and placed on it's pedestal. It's been a while since the piece was completed, and now we're finally at the end.

Following that, on April 12, 13 and 14th, is Monsterpalooza!! I'll be exhibiting my work there once again. The table will be chock full of new work (stuff you guys haven't seen yet). I'm super excited about the show and have been working hard to prepare all the inventory, and get a couple of the pieces painted. The "Bad Apples" have been hard to keep in stock, so I have to keep casting more as I get closer to the show dates. I think they will be a hit at the show as well. If you're in the Burbank area on those dates, stop by the show and then come by my table and say "Hi". I love meeting fans and sharing my work. I look forward to seeing some of you there. Let me know you read the blog.

The 14th is also my 37th birthday!! I'll be celebrating by sitting behind my table at Monsterpalooza!!

On the 15th, the crew from Make Magazine will be coming by the studio to shoot an interview for their Youtube channel: Make: Believe. I think it's going to be a fun shoot and I hope you guys can get a chance to get to know me a little better, and see the inside of my studio.

Then FINALLY!!! On the the 16th.... (Phew, I'm going to be busy), is the dedication ceremony for the Lucky Baldwin Monument. It'll be taking place at the site, and there will be a number of guests and press for the event. I'm really looking forward to seeing people's reaction to the piece as it gets unveiled for the public. I'll have photos of the event, and hopefully some video to share with you guys.

Well, that's about all I can fit into my schedule for now. I'll have lots more stuff coming this Summer (I'm on a real alien kick right now, so prepare to see lots of aliens creatures coming from me). Until then, or one of the events, Take care. Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to say Hi if you see me at one of these places.  and Cheers!!
