Sturgeon Floor Decal


Last night at the Belle Isle Aquarium in Detroit was a fundraiser event to help raise money to maintain the new sturgeon exhibit. It was a great success, a sold out event. On the floor are decals of the above image that I drew up and Linville Design Studio printed up. These sturgeon decals will lead one right to the tank that they currently abode in. As they get bigger, they will be moved to a larger tank (the fish, not the decals). There is also an art exhibit (Ann Arbor artist Dominique Chastenet de Gery is one of the featured artists) that will be on display at the aquarium for the next three months that is all sturgeon related. So, check it out and the sturgeon will lead there!

Aquarium Seahorse Design


These past few weeks I have been part of a team creating a holiday decoration that will be placed in front of the Belle Isle Aquarium, hopefully by next week. I inadvertently left off the back fin thingie that is usually a part of a seahorse's bodily function. The way that the decoration will be put together, it shouldn't be a problem to add that in there. The seahorses will be pulling a Santa seashell sleigh and  will have strings of lights around their shapes.

On this day 100 years ago the Sculptor Auguste Rodin passed away in Meudon, France. This is a sketch based on a photo of the Bust of Victor Hugo that I took this past summer at an exhibit of his works.

Alphonse de Neuville Sketch


Alphonse de Neuville was one of the illustrators who did the drawings for the first edition of Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea among others. Loved his hair and 'stache, so a sketch was in order.

Fantasticon Mt. Pleasant




This Saturday and Sunday I will be in Mt. Pleasant, MI at the Soaring Eagle Casino for their Fantasticon show. If you are in the area and/or at the casino and want to spend more money, stop on by. There will be quite a few Michigan artists on hand, such as The Minor Brothers, Jay Jacot, Michael Peters and Bryan Mazeny among others.I've heard that they have sold over a thousand tickets, so that's good to hear!

*Edit: The Minor Brothers have canceled their appearance at this show.
