Here I am wondering why my tent is so darned empty of customers!

    Every once in a while I do manage to get out of the studio, and bring along a few samples of my art and 'zines to art festivals and conventions around the country. Below is a list of the upcoming events I'm confirmed to appear at, with links to their sites for more information, where available. As well, if you're interested in a more historical perspective, you can click here for information on past shows, with photos and other nifty stuff.
    If you would like to receive an email notice when I will be at an event in your own neck of the woods, just go to the Contact Info and Mail List page. Note in the comment field you'd like to get an email notice of such events, and make sure to at the very least give me your name, email address , state and zip code. We'll use the state and zip code to help us know when we will be nearby, and send you an update note when we know we'll be there. You can then either come and visit in person, or will at least be warned to avoid that area should you wish!

Houston Cat Show 2018
January
6, 7 / 2018
Houston Cat Club 65th Annual Charity Cat Show
Houston, TX     —    www.houstoncatclub.org
Cat Show
    It's been almost two decades since we went down to Houston to do their big charity cat show at the start of the year. I'm so happy to say that I am back this year as the official show artist, creating a brand new Argent Cat for the poster art, and starting the series up again. So will be back and bringing the full line of artworks, prints and originals, including all of the many cat images I've done over the years. Haven't been in the Houston area for any events at all in quite a while, so looking forward to seeing folks there again. (And maybe getting to hug a couple of purring fur-balls.)

North Texas Comic Book Show logo
February 10, 11 / 2018
North Texas Comic Book Show
Irving, TX     —    www.comicbooksdallas.com
Comic book convention
    I had a lot of fun doing this event last summer, my first straight-up comic book convention in a number of years, so when opportunity came up to come back, I was there! Nice show, not too small, not too big, plenty of artists, and plenty of people selling actual comicbooks! If you are aware of my solo comic "Mechthings", or the work I did as the "Big Background Artist" on Image Comic's "Shadowhawk" series, or the other odd little comics and minis and whatnot publications I've been in over the years, then you'll know I've got the credentials to at least get my toe in the door! As with last time, I'll be bringing a selection of a lot of those odd comics and stuff, along with the usual piles of art prints and drawings to check out, andmaybe some surprise items from the vault.. And, if my being there is not enough (though it should be!), check their website for the long list of big-name Comic Book Pro's who will be attenidng as well. I'm not proud-- whatever reason you find for coming, come on down!

ConDFW
February
16 - 18 / 2018
ConDFW 17 - Science Fiction Convention
Ft. Worth, TX     —    www.condfw.org
Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention
    I've been having a great time at this local Dallas/Ft. Worth Convention for way over a decade now, and will be back again in 2018. Will have some new artwork along with the old favorites, plus a selection of books on art, sf, fantasy, and more from my own collection, and will also be giving my two cents worth on a few of the panels. As of posting this link here, I know their two main guests are the wonderful writer Charlaine Harris, and the amazing artist John Picacio. Check their website as it gets closer for more info, incluidng full lineup of all the name guests!

Funky Finds Spring Fling
March 3. 4 / 2018
Funky Finds Spring Fling
Ft. Worth, TX     —    funkyfinds.com/spring.html
A Handmade Arts and Crafts Event
   This is the 10th annual Funky Finds Spring Show in Ft. Worth, a show I always have fun at, and the mix of exhibitors here is, indeed, funky. Very different than most of what I call the "big-painting" art festivals. If you're in the Ft. Worth area, this will be in the Small Exhibits Building at the Will Rogers Memorial Center near downtown, and will feature over 100 different artists and crafters. And, if you need more reason to come down, in past years there were a couple of other events going on at the same at the Center, including a way-cool "antiques/junk/garage-sale" type event next door to us that I had a blast rummaging around in myself. So, I guess you could say- come for the art, stay for the junk!

Beer-n-Chips Art Festival
Dallas, TX     —    www.facebook.com/events/162368111063048/
Beer and Art One Day Festival
   Come for the art, stay for the beer-- or even the other way around. (There will be free chips, one way or the other!) We'll be at the Noble Rey Brewing Company, just west of downtown Dallas, at 2636 Farrington Street, running from noon until around 7:00 PM. There should be a mix of some 50 or so artists of all kinds, plus, of course, plenty of interesting brews on tap to try out. And, get a look at what a real micro brewery is like! You can support the arts and get a buzz, all in the same day!

Deep Ellum Arts Festival
April
6 - 8 / 2018
Deep Ellum Arts Festival
Dallas, TX     —    www.deepellumartsfestival.com
Juried Arts Festival
   This is one of my favorite art festivals here in Dallas, have been showing my art here since they started a couple of decades ago, and was sad when I did not get into the show for the first time last year. However, I'll be back again for 2018, so come on down and check out this amazing event, and I'll have a few new things for you to check out, as well. From their site: "Six blocks of Main Street in the Deep Ellum entertainment district will be transformed into one enormous street festival featuring, 200 top-notch juried decorative and visual artists, 100 original bands, singer/songwriters and performance artists performing from five different stages, the renowned Pet Parade, and copious food and drink. Festival attendees can stroll through displays of cutting-edge decorative arts and admire, commission, and purchase the art of sculptors, muralists, jewelers, painters, and fine artists; some of whom will be creating pieces on the spot."

   Back again for more of this newly enlarged and wonderful art festival in downtown McKinney, around their great central square. And, if you need more than being able to stroll among a group of wonderful artists (and isn't that usually enough?), there will be music, food, children's activites, a huge tented wine garden, and much more for a wonderful Spring outing. Come on by!

Juried Music and Arts Festival
   Held in the Denton Civic Center Park in the heart of downtown Denton, this music and art event is free to the public. Six stages feature jazz, blues and "cross-cultural" music. This is one of my favorite events to do in the North Texas area every year, and I'll be setting up my display inside the main civic center building again, so come in and enjoy the art and the airconditioning! Around 160 artists and crafters offer a wide range of art and styles. There's a large outdoor kids section, food everywhere, and tons of music all day and into the night. Check out their website for more information on the headliner acts they'll be bringing in!

Art on the Greene
May
11 - 13 / 2018
Art On the Greene
Arlington, TX     —    www.artonthegreene.com
Juried Arts Festival
   I'll be setting up my full display once more at the 7th annual Art on the Greene event. This year they are going to be moving things around a bit, putting the music stage deeper into the lovely park, and moving the artists a bit closer to the parking, which is nice for tose of us moving our things in and out. For you, it just means another wonderful art show under the trees. The festival will again be located in Richard Greene Linear Park, between The Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and Cowboys Stadium. (The Park is also the home of the Caelum Moor Sculptures by Artist Norm Hines.) It's a beautiful spot for a festival. This is one of my favorites to do in the area, and I hope you can come out and enjoy it as well. Located right in the middle of the DFW metro area, come on by any of the three days to check it all out!

It's the annual weekend home for over 33,000 fans and enthusiasts of anime, gaming, cosplay, music, fashion, manga, art, film, media and Japanese culture. And, what you really wanted to know: I will be there again this year! This is the second year they will be held in the huge Ft. Worth Convention center, and they have promised to tweak the layout a bit from last year. opening up wider aisles in the artist alley section to make it easier to get through and see everyone. Though, of course, once you've seen the rest, you will be stopping at the best. (That's me, he said humbly.) Seriously, A-Kon is always a fun and high energy convention, I'm looking forward to being a part of it again this year.

I'm going to be bringing along an extra-large art show display this year, more than have in the past, with mix of originals and prints for your viewing and buying pleasure. They are still finalizing the big-name guests as I type this notice early in 2018, but you know from the past it will always be good, along with literally dozens of other artists, writers, and other creative folks in the science fiction and fantasy field. They are at the Reed Center, just a few miles from downtown OKC. Easy access, affordable dining, and free parking. Come say hi and have a great time.

One Day Art Event
   Tired of the usual street art festival? No, and neither am I-- but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy other art events as well, and this is fun one for sure! I first did this back last October, and they are putting it together again here in Dallas. This time we'll be at the Deep Ellum Art Company for all the art weirdness. There will be close to a hundred artists showing some strange and funky work to view and take home, a bar, music, and, of course, FREE PANCAKES! How can you pass it by?

Red River Revel Arts Festival
Shreveport, LA     —    www.redriverrevel.com
Juried Arts Festival
   I'll be heading back to one of my favorite shows to do, the big Red River Revel in Shreveport. They have changed the dates a bit this year, as well as making the hours on most of the days shorter, and it has ended up where I will not be able to attend the entire week as I have in the past. So, if you come looking for me again, this is to let you know I will not be there for the first half of the event, but will be there for the second half, Thursday all the way through the extended show days into the next Sunday. If you drop by early, come back again and check out all my new pieces!
