March is “awesome-artist-curated-show” month!! Mark it down, March 19th in Detroit – the Lyric Show – curated by Glenn Barr!
Mark your calendars for the March 11th show at Gallery 1988 on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. This is the INLE Show, curated by Greg Simkins, with over 100 fabulous artists interpreting the Black Rabbit of Watership Down.
The show is going to be out of this world … and you already know what piece I’m doing 😉
This Thursday, February 17th there are two cool shows going down in Vancouver!
The first is at SFU and it’s an artshow / fundraiser for the 4th Year Visual Art Students.
I was happy to contribute to their show, and 4 of my FINE ART PRINTS will be available for purchase:
Here’s a little blurb about the show, from the soon to be Grads:
“Looking for an excellent night of local visual art, performance, local bands and DJs, and cheap drinks? Join us at To All Tomorrow’s Parties’s visual art’s exhibition at The Lion’s Den Project Space located at 79 East Pender, here in Vancouver! Opening night is February 18, 7:30pm, and the party and cheap drinks will roll on to 2am! 5$ Cover, and all night for partying! Join in for a night exploring both contemporary student works, and professional visual artist Camilla d’Errico’s Fine Art, to some sweet beats of local bands and DJ mixes.”
The second is the Ayden Gallery’s 7th Anniversary Show in collaboration with Toms Shoes. That takes place on Friday February 18th. Doors open at 7 pm. Check out the special Toms/Ayden site and also Facebook! That gallery is going to be packed and overflowing!
There are going to be one-of-a-kind pairs of handpainted shoes from different artists – including me!
I’m also going to be on hand with a few of the featured artists to customize shoes that night. So if you come to the gallery, grab a pair of shoes or buy them beforehand, and get them customized.
Toms entire concept is based on 1+1, so for each pair of Toms shoes that are bought (anywhere) they give a pair to children in need.
Needless to say, the proceeds from the sale of the original shoes will go to charity.
That’s two amazing art and gallery shows in Vancouver, all in one night. Come to both! Support university students, support children in need. We’re an awesome community in Vancouver ^_^

Urban Superstar Show “2D Characters”
Where: Mondopop, Rome, Italy. www.mondopopshop.com
MondoPOP presents the most important international artists from Urban Art, Pop Surrealism and Low Brow Art regarding Character design.
Heirs of International Pop, this generation of artists born between 70’s and 80’s, grown up with Disney, Looney Tunes, anime and Manga, vintage videogames and old internet aesthetics, often create characters similar to the ones they spent their childhood and adolescence with: puppets that comes back from the childish imagination to fill the visual imagination of adults.
But you should not look to the figures represented as a mere exercise of replication of the older comics or cartoons: with their strong ability to penetrate the imaginary of entire generations.
Characters become the protagonists of this perfect society, suitable to communicate every single message, from social criticism to human moods. Now the most important and recognized authors of this genre have come together to MondoPOP Gallery with important names from USA as Glenn Barr, Gary Taxali, Shag, Buff Monster (special guest of the opening party!), Jeremy Fish, Joe Ledbetter, Jim Avignon, and from Europe: Jon Burgerman, Ian Stevenson, Boris Hoppek and even Italian artists as Tokidoki and Diavù.
Among them also fantastic female artists which portray almost exclusively female characters: Lisa Petrucci from the States, the Colombian Catalina Estrada, Italo-Canadian Camilla D’Errico and Japanese Naoshi, true pioneers of the genre and very much appreciated internationally.
