Spotted in Akron Artwalk video
The Akronist created a video from May 2012's Akron Artwalk which does a great job of conveying the spirit of the area's artists. If you look closely, you'll see three shots of me and/or my work. 


November 2011: The Akron Art Museum liked a painting I had done of the museum so well that they had ornaments created with the image; they also used the image on promotions for Holiday Mart and included the ornament in the showcase celebrating the museum's 90th anniversary.
