This past weekend was the opening of my little solo show, Strange As It Is! A tribute to the circus and sideshow. A huge, HUGE thanks to everyone who made it out to the opening to support the show and my work-as always, it absolutely means the world. After spending these past couple of months trying to meet a goal of fifteen new pieces, it felt awesome to see everything hanging and come together. Below and above are all of the images from the show, both large and small. The show and paintings will hang for a month, so be sure to stop by Dream in Plastic if you happen to be in Beacon, NY! I'm also told the remaining paintings will be available in their online shop for purchase (or you can contact them for more info and pricing!) ♥
With Halloween just a week away, I decided to have a limited edition, small run print made of a new painting, Bloody Mary. The piece will be sold in my shop until November 1st! Above is a really fun piece I painted for an art show, Something Spooky, at Guzu Gallery in Austin TX. There are some amazing artists involved in the show and if you're in the area, be sure to stop by! Show hangs until November 25th.
Below are two new cover images released this week, one for Red Sonja issue 7 and another for Archie issue 652 (out in January). I had so much fun with the retro concert poster/cover for the Archie issue. Working out all the little details and characters, the records and instruments-and of course, Josie and the Pussycats (my favorites!)!!. A big thanks to Rob Harrigan for laying in some beautiful custom letters on the cover for me!
It's been a hectic and busy fall, with a few neat projects on the way into 2014. Aside from work-work, I've been painting away on new pieces for my show next month. It's been a real challenge painting not only batches of monthly covers and assignments, but also coming up with new sketches and paintings. I'll be posting a little preview of some of the new work for the show in the next week or so! Until then, wishing everyone a very Happy Halloween!!

I know I'm forgetting a few, but I wanted to post a couple of cover images released this month. Above is a super fun HIM cover I painted for PPG issue 4 (IDW). Below, Red Sonja #6 (Dynamite). And a few My Little Pony covers (IDW), for issue 14 (Hearth's warming cover) and 11(Cadence and Twilight).
I'm also pretty excited to finally talk about a super fun comic project I've contributed to. I'll be a guest artist on the new Hello Kitty/Sanrio comics VIZ is publishing. I've painted a few one page gag strips and art for the book "Delicious", you can read a little more about the project at MTV Geek. Hopefully I can post a little preview of the art soon!

Over the past couple of months I’ve been hard at work on a little collection of new original pieces I’m very excited about. They’ll all be making their debut at Strange As It Is, a painted tribute to the sideshow and circus, opening November 9th at Dream In Plastic gallery and boutique in Beacon, New York ( Opening reception from 6-9, which I hope you’ll join me for! ). I’ll be posting little peeks and previews from some of the pieces leading up to the show through my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

A few new covers I can share! Above is a really fun piece I painted for Betty & Veronica: Reggiestiltskin (Archie’s take on classic fairy tales), which will be out this October. I really tried to give this piece an old school fairy tale book feel! The super pretty lettering treatment was handled by my awesome and talented husband, Rob Harrigan. He's an incredibly talented designer and I love collaborating with him when we get the chance.
Below is the painted cover for Red Sonja #4 (I hope you all picked up issue #1, out this past week!). I keep saying it, but I really, truly love working on these covers. They've been a real treat to work on each month-coming up with new monsters, scenes, color schemes and compositions has been a huge challenge for me. It takes me out of my comfort zone and forces me to play around with paintings I don't normally get the opportunity to make. It's been a total dream gig and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to work not only with the Sonja character, but among such amazingly talented people on the book.

A bunch more covers on the way-more My Little Pony, more Powerpuff Girls, more Sonja, more stuff I can't talk about ;). While I'm not going to be exhibiting at anymore cons this year, I am starting to book a couple of shows for 2014. Next year I'll be at Asbury Park Comicon and Heroes Con, possibly one or two more. More on that as it gets closer! I'll also be creeping around NYCC for a day or two this October. I won't be exhibiting, but possibly signing and stuff.
