Philadelphia Sketch Club’s Phillustration 12

The Philadelphia Sketch Club’s annual juried exhibit, featuring professional and student illustrators in our area, is now open – virtually, this year – and I’m very pleased to have two of my pieces included.

The entire Phillustration exhibit can be viewed, from the comfort of your computer or phone, at https://sketchclub.org/phillustration-12/#gallery through December 6th. Several of my friends from the Bucks County Illustrators Society have also had illustrations accepted, so be sure to see the excellent work of Joe DeVito, Glenn Zimmer, Gil Cohen, Piya and Christina Wannachaiwong, Mark Schaeffer and Deb Hoeffner.

One of my entries is the illustration I painted for the Bucks County Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s production of The Pirates of Penzance –

and another is a black/white ink wash cartoon of the iconic NYC Rockefeller Christmas tree that I’ve made into a greeting card –

The little child in the drawing is pointing and saying, “They missed a spot.” This card is available on my Etsy shop HERE.

Please enjoy the whole show at the Sketch Club HERE to see the many styles of interesting artwork that illustrators in our area are creating.

My Art at the CB Chamber Expo

I’m very pleased to say I have joined the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce, a rousingly active organization of business people who are productively involved in every aspect of the Bucks County community. My good friend Debbie Wagner, who owns and runs the outstanding graphic design firm The Graphic Edge, described to me the CBCC’s great benefits to local business owners, and I felt it would enhance my work and connections to join.

Once a year the chamber hosts a business expo, and I welcome the chance to display my work and meet other business owners, so you will find me at my booth there. The CBCC Business Expo will be Tuesday, May 14, from 2 pm to 7 pm at the Student Center Exhibition Hall, Delaware Valley University. The University is at 700 E. Butler Avenue, Doylestown, PA. I designed the postcard below, featuring my illustration work, to hand out. The back has a few of my gag cartoons, and I’ve created a slideshow of my gag cartoons to run on my laptop throughout the expo.

In addition to meeting and learning about your local business owners, you can also enjoy some goodies from generous CBCC members, including Annie’s Water Ice, Tru-Brew Coffee and food from Applebee’s. Also, Fine Art Appraiser Lauren Travis will do free verbal approximations of value for a Fine or Decorative Art item from 2 pm to 5 pm.

Capping off the day will be the Chamber’s Largest Business Card Exchange of the Year – from 5 to 7 pm, in between networking with new colleagues, all can enjoy complimentary food courtesy of Chambers 19 Bistro & Bar with wine courtesy of Buckingham Valley Vineyards. Major event sponsors include Provident Bank, USI Affinity, My Benefit Advisor, NJM Insurance, and Delaware Valley University. This entire event is free and open to the public – I hope you stop by to see me!
