Artscape is over!!

Thanks to everyone who came out and saw the beast/got their picture taken with her/dropped in a note/screamed in delight. I felt like I got an awesome response and the beast definately had a nice time meeting everyone (though she has a few battle scars after the four day art fest). Also, I'm looking for a home for her asap....any ideas, let me know!!

Come one come all to 2008 Artscape!!

Baltimore's largest arts festival is quickly approaching...and this year things have gotten even larger. Charles Street, from Mt. Royal to North Ave. will be taken over by what I think may be the most exciting exhibits and booths of the enitre festival!! My buddies from Charm City Craft Mafia, along with a ton of other local artists/crafters will be selling their affordable artwork in the new DIY market section... And though I won't be selling my work there this year...

You can surley get your monster fix in by visiting my "BELLY OF THE BEAST" project located within the all new MIDWAY section, along with pretty consistent performances/interactive installations/and generally amazing happenings. The line up of artists looks FANTASTIC!!

MIDWAY will be located on the Charles Street bridge between Penn Station and the Charles theater.
