Berenstain Bears

Jan Berenstain, who created the Berenstain Bears books with her husband Stan, passed away on Friday. As a kid, the Berenstain Bears (along with Mercer Mayer's Little Critter) were a huge inspiration to me and made a fantastic impression on my imagination and artwork  and it's an inspiration that continues to this day. Thank you, Jan and Stan, for the creativity and storytelling you shared with each other and with us.

Below is a look at one my earliest works of art created in Mrs. Ruth's preschool class circa 1984...the Berenstain family treehouse. Good times, good memories.

Sweets & Treats

Hey, you should totally stop by Lilah's Bakery and Deli before March 3rd to see Sweets & Treats, a group show featuring local artists' take on, um, well...sweets. And treats. Below is a peek at Kid Cupcake, who is currently adorning the walls on Olive Street.

Oh, and be sure take a look at the making of my buddy Jeff's piece called "Fresh from the Oven"...dude's got skills!
