Some of my artwork is living under the same roof as #AlexanderCalder (At least for now!) I have a few paintings and cat coloring books available at the Huntington Museum of Art’s gift shop! Including this painting called, “Did you feed the cat?”.
I’m making a cat coloring book and your cat could be in it!
The book will feature 50+ original cat drawings, but before the book is finalized I wanted to add this idea to the mix!
For $50 you can send me a photo of your cat and I’ll add them to the book!
There are 15 spots for cat portraits available. Each spot will ensure your cats inclusion in the book as well as your own physical copy of the coloring book. Feel free to email, message, or comment if you are interested!
Here are a few samples that were inspired by our cat Elwood that showcase some of his his favorite habits and haunts.
Here There Be Monsters at the Markay Theatre in Jackson Ohio.Oct 24th – Nov 17th
Artwork by: Charlie Haskins & Trevin Wyant
Opening Night is Oct 24th at 7pm!
The title of the exhibit, Here There Be Monsters, comes from a phrase that is sometimes depicted on old world maps and antique globes. Acting as a warning, these words labeled dangerous or unexplored territories and acted as a reminder that there are still unknown forces at work in the world. Accompanied by symbols of dragons, sea monsters, and the like, these were the kinds of maps that kept you from falling off the edge of the world. In creating work for this show, however, I used this title as a compass to guide me to monsters rather than steer me away from them.
The creatures I found in this search are presented here in both drawings and paintings. These images largely consist of shadowy blob-like figures that lurk and loom their way through several impressionistic landscapes. In this series, one can see several of these monsters rummaging through neighboring houses looking for food and lifting up sailing boats from the water as they study the humans inside. In one painting, the monsters are even seen sharing a sunset as they picnic on a small city!
Making work for this show has been a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with my fellow artist, Trevin Wyant. His dark narratives, fiendish beasts, and claw-like mark making evoke powerful feelings of fear, anxiety, and panic. It has been a privilege to navigate and chart these monstrous worlds with him. We both hope that you enjoy the show–Here There Be Monsters!
