A couple weeks ago, I was invited to participate in an exhibition at the BSB Gallery in Trenton, NJ. Entitled, "Free Enterprise," the exhibit "discusses capitalism, it's pros and cons and effects and it's production of the American dream". The curator approached me after I was recommended to her from a curator at the Monmouth Museum. She wants all three of these prints in the show, and is using "Veiled Liberty" as the signature image for the show, used in all the publicity. So cool.

The opening is on Friday, April 3rd, 4-8pm at BSB Gallery in downtown Trenton. Hope to see you there!

My newish print, "Via Vitae" has just been accepted in to a group exhibition at the Monmouth Museum. This exhibition is for alumni of their Emerging Artists series, which gave me my solo show last fall. I'm so glad that this print is getting its exhibition debut, it's been in the works for a long time. Plus, it's big: around 44" square, framed. It'll look great on a museum wall!

The show's opening reception is on Saturday, March 21, 2020 from 5pm – 7pm. Hope to see you there!

My political satire prints are now available at affordable prices! This actually marks a new decision I just made: to release my political prints for on-demand printing (open edition, rather than limited edition) and doing original drawings for my future gallery work. This is a huge change for me.....we'll see how it turns out! Check them out on Fine Art America:

I just spent the day with the incomparable Joey Skaggs! I saw his film and presentation at NYU, and then we went out to dinner and talked about art, pranks, and the universe.

If you dont know who Joey is, you need to check him out. For 50 years, hes been pranking the US and international media, gaining national fame - or perhaps infamy. If you are interested in culture-jamming and media hoaxes, Joey is the undisputed king of hoaxes. Plus, he's a wonderful guy.

MBR: Reviewer's Bookwatch, October 2019

Another review of Willoughby's from the Midwest Book Review:

"This international edition of "Willoughby's World of Wonder", is a unique and entertaining fictional reproduction of the famous 1882 Field Guide to Strange Beasts & Curious Creatures. Overflowing with whimsy and delight from cover to cover, "Willoughby's World of Wonder" features beautiful, black-and-white Victorian engravings printed on fine white paper. Suitable for adults and young adults, "Willoughby's World of Wonder" will enthrall readers of all ages and is unreservedly recommended for personal, community, and academic library collections."
