The opening of the Print Lives! Poster Sale at the Spur Gallery went great! It's always fun sharing our work with old friends and meeting new patrons. Print Lives! will be on display until August 24th, with a closing event to be announced. Feel free to stop by the Spur Gallery any time Monday through Friday from 9-5 to browse and buy some posters!
Here's one of the many $5 posters that will be for sale at Print Lives! this Thursday at the Spur Gallery. This is Dave's "Picasso", an image originally created for Craig Yoe's Arf Museum and eventually reproduced into an attractive 11" X 16" promotional poster.
Cats and kittens from BARCS were additional guests at the opening and they were definitely charmers!
Thanks to everyone who made it out to the opening, and to all the artists for contributing their excellent work. We had a great time.

... side by side, on the table sat. Eugene Field's poem, The Duel, was one of my favorites as a kid (and maybe still is). These are my paintings for Cats & Dogs & Dogs & Cats, opening tonight at the Spur Gallery. See you there!

Thank you everyone! The 100 Heads for Haiti event was a huge success. The gallery doors opened at 6:00 sharp with a line ready and waiting to buy art. Over 100 artists contributed artwork for the cause, and we are closing in fast on our goal of raising $10,000 for Doctors Without Borders. 100 Heads for Haiti continues online for one month.
In previous years, we used the large lobby space of our studio as a gallery to showcase some great illustrators and designers: Hatch Show Print, Charles Burns, Luba Lukova, Paul Sahre and Dan Gregory,Dan Yaccarino, and Steve Brodner to name a few. The gallery shows came to an abrupt halt after the birth of our 2nd and 3rd children. Twins. Dave handled the final gallery opening (Steve Brodner) less than 24 hours after the twins were born (a bit ahead of schedule). We had our hands full, and the gallery shows stopped.
At a recent production meeting Dave brought up an idea he had been kicking around to re-launch the gallery: invite 100 illustrators to donate work, a simple drawing of a head, to help with the recent Haiti disaster. Each head will be sold for $100. Our goal for the event: $10,000 for Doctors Without Borders. A limited edition poster showcasing the entire collection of heads will be available as well.
So for the last few weeks drawings, collages, and paintings have been pouring in. The illustration community's response has been overwhelming and we are thrilled to be hosting this event. Mark your calendars for the opening April 10th, 2010 from 6-8:30pm. For complete details visit the 100 Heads for Haiti page and see the list of participating artists. Hope to see you there! Oh, the twins are now 5. And we still have our hands very full.
