April and the Adventures of Social Distancing

Hello friends, well, we entered a strange alternate dimension in March and as we cruise into April. A dimension where tiny little monsters are floating through the earth and causing bans on hugs, lockdowns on toilet paper and anxiety as the new norm. But I am here to still make art and hopefully give some colors for your eyeballs to rest in and find a moment of escape. Hang in there everyone, we will weather this storm, together. In the meantime, take a peak at these paint doodles.

All month long: I have been painting personal commissions and sharing them on my social media sites Facebook and Instagram. If you have a commission that would fit my style send me a message and I will see what I can do 🙂

All month long: I have new art in the Art of Toys doodle bin! Although the store front is closed, be sure to check out there online store (and yes even the doodles) here: https://artoftoys.com/

All month long and beyond:
Check it out everyone! I made a return guest spot over at the Serious Talk. Seriously. podcast! Tune in and listen to some random conversation about the weirdness of the world.
