Last weekend I went to the opening for “Never Grow Up: The Art of Comic Con” at the Blackbird Gallery and Studio in Jersey City, New Jersey. In addition to four of my iPad drawings, the group show features the work of Christian Masot, Noel Gussen, Marq Romero, Scott Modrzynski, Alex Perament, Gerald Terado and Lawrence Ciarallo. From the gallery:
“The spirit of Comic Con is flying into Jersey City! Featuring pop culture influenced works from emerging and established New Jersey artists, the pieces will consist of varying medium and application but will speak to the enchanting theme of “Never Grow Up”.”
The Gallery, located at 189 Brunswick Street in Jersey City, also holds a variety of painting and photography classes for adults and children. It is a beautiful space for showing artwork and I’m really looking forward to seeing what they do next!
The show will be up until the end of October. Contact the gallery for the hours.
This is a portrait of Heather, also known as @Poshadornments on Instagram and Twitter. Heather makes incredible jewelry that she sells on her Etsy site and at various shows around the New Jersey/New York area. I met Heather a couple of years ago at SketchCon and I try to buy a piece of her jewelry every time we are in a show together. This portrait is an iPad mashup using Inkpad, Wordphoto and Sketchbook Pro on the Ipad.
I am really excited about being part of the group show “Never Grow Up: The Art of Comic Con” at the Blackbird Gallery and Studio in Jersey City, New Jersey. The Blackbird Gallery, located at 189 Brunswick Street, is a beautiful space which also holds art and photography classes. The opening is Saturday, October 3rd from 6 to 8, and the exhibit is up for the entire month of October. I will be posting pictures from the opening some time next week.
I am very fortunate to be an exhibiting artist at Mobile Digital Art and More in Boonton, New Jersey. The gallery is owned by David Scott Leibowitz, one of the first mobile artists that I originally met online. The gallery features artwork by some of the original mobile artists who started on iPhones and iPod Touch, and later the iPad.
Once a month Boonton has First Friday where the galleries have openings and musicians play along the street. Last month I did some live iPad art in front of the gallery. Everyone who stopped by to watch was very friendly and the night just flew by. There is a great vibe in Boonton, and I’m really looking forward to many more First Fridays.

I am happy to announce that my portrait of Jo for JKPP was selected for the MDAC Summit 2015 in Palo Alto, California. Only 100 pieces were selected from over 1200 entries. The show will be up through the month of August at the Palo Alto Art Center.
Veronica Varlow – Inkpad, Percolator and Wordfoto on Ipad
Veronica Varlow is not only one of my fave bloggers, she is also a burlesque star, a reader of tarot cards, weaver of magic spells and a teacher on the art of seduction. I started reading her Danger Diary in the last year, even though i’m not really sure how I discovered her blog. Her posts vary from monthly tarot readings, fashion, how-to’s, magic, and her burlesque adventures. I am always inspired by her posts to try new things and to be a little more adventurous.
I love, love, love her sense of style. Her styles range from pinup, burlesque goddess, punk, vintage, retro and various combinations thereof. She inspires me to wear red lipstick and winged black eyeliner on a daily basis, not just for “special occasions.”
