   Collaborations, art show prep, and shop upkeep. Lots have been going on lately. 
Very exciting, hoping to make a break through very soon.
 I've had the honor to be invited to have art on exhibit at the Resurrection Fashion and Art Show this coming April. The event will be held in Downtown Los Angeles at the Mezz Bar. 
This will be my first exhibition, hopefully more to come! I will have some of my taxidermy as well as blood art on display. In addition to the exhibition, there will be a runway, showing off local designers' hottest and latest creations. Indeed it will be a fun night! 

Vendors are set up to have a plethora of items up for sale. I will be doing double duty as a vendor and an artist that night. I'll have aprons as well as taxidermy and oddities for sale. The event has been featured in a few Los Angeles event pages, including Downtown

Come out for a great night of fun! 
For more information, check out the facebook event page!
Artists, vendors and designers are encouraged to comment if interested in participating. 
The location is roomy!

       Kid Ory has got to be my favorite musician to listen to these days. Upon returning from New Orleans a few weeks ago, I can not shake the feel of The Big Easy from my mind. The music, the vibes, the people. I need to return to New Orleans and live out the rest of my days there.

  I find myself listening to creole jazz and ragtime, much more than I have before. It's become a dominant muse for my art and taxidermy. Relaxing and uplifting to the very bone. Truly has such great emotion, talent and skill pouring out of the musicians and instrument.

   As I listen to a live jazz station, or even YouTube compilations, while I work on a taxidermy diorama, I sometimes imagine my studio as a speakeasy. As odd as it seems, it makes the time go by so much faster and the end product that much more astonishing.

    I leave you with a photo of one of my latest pieces. It has yet to be titled; but will be in exhibition at an upcoming art show in Los Angeles, CA. Be sure to leave comments below, be there any other suggestions on great creole jazz or ragtime artists, new or old!
