It's my favorite month! Only selfishly because it's my birthday this month. I'll be 92 at heart.
This month I have excited things coming up that you can see or be part of.
This Thursday, a fellow illustrator, Neil Yarnal and I, along with my studio mate, Sarah, will be hosting Denver's first Social Sketch. SS started in San Francisco, and we are opening up a chapter here in CO because we too, love community, sketching, and collaborating. If you're in town, head over the Laundry on Lawrence Building Thursday, Jan. 8, from 7-9 pm. If you're not local, check back for photos of the event, or check it out on our IG's > @rebeccagreenillustration, @neilyarnal, @flyokayillustration, #socialsketch. Here's the flyer for more info..
Also this month, Society of Illustrators is hosting the first part of their annual exhibition, which features work in the category of Advertising, Uncommissioned, and Institutional. Ol' BG (that's me) got a piece in the show, and am very honored and grateful. This is the first time I've gotten work in at the professional stage, aside from the student show which I participated in as a student. If you're in New York, stop by the Museum of American Illustration this Friday, Jan 9. for the Opening Reception and have a beer for me, would you? The piece in the show is:
The Sea Saw and So Did I, 24x36, Acrylic and Oil on Clayboard, 2014.
Annnnnnnd this month I am busy working on an upcoming show that I am stoked about. MILDFIRE, opens Feb 21 at Svper Ordinary. I will be showing alongside the painter and tattoo extraordinaire, Sandi Calistro. The show will feature all new work and is not one to be missed - according me anyway, but I'm biased. I want you to come so I can shake your hand and give you a beer! It will be great! An official flyer is coming soon but for now….
Time to PAINT.
