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!

Juried Arts Festival
   Yes, people of Shreveport, you may now rejoice. For the Red River Revel has once again decided to let me back in for the entire week of art, music and food again this year. I missed doing this show so much for a couple of years, just overjoyed when I get in my acceptance letter. Will have some new stuff to bring, plus will be again offering the special "Get one of every single print I have for half price" offer. Go for it!

South Street Art Festival
Arlington, TX     —    www.southstreetartfest.com
Juried Arts Festival
   This is the fifth year for this event in downtown Arlington,with artists setting up for several blocks along both sides of East South Street. Free parking all around, and free admisision to the event, you can enjoy three days of art, music and food. And, it's mid-October, which means the long, long Texas summer will finally be coming to an end, so it's the perfect time to go back outdoors again!

Pancakes & Booze Art Show logo
October 21 / 2017
Pancakes & Booze Art Show
Dallas, TX     —    www.pancakesandbooze.com/dallas
One Day Art Event
   I tried to tempt you into coming to check out my art by adding beer to the mix a couple of months ago. This time, we up the ante even more: along with some 75 plus artists showing off their amazing works, you'll have booze, you'll get to check out the body-painting, and there will be free pancakes! What more do you people want me to do to make it fun for you? Just the one day, we'll be at The Door, just east of downtown Dallas, at 2513 Main Street, starting late at 8:00 PM, and running even later until 2:00 AM. This is a 21+ event, with tickets going for $7 in advance, or $10 at the door. Is it an art show? An all night party? A weird breakfast celebration? Or is it all of that... and MORE!

Huffhines Art Trails
October
28 - 29 / 2017
Huffhines Art Trails
Richardson, TX     —    www.huffhinesarttrails.com
Juried Arts Festival
    This is always our last outdoor art festival of the year, and we love setting up along the winding trails and under the tall trees of Huffhines Park in the city of Richardson, just north of Dallas. Come on out and enjoy the art, the food, the music, and maybe even drop a few bucks my way for some artwork to take home, then I can get some Christmas gifts for my friends and family, too!

Walnut Hill Art Festival
November 11 / 2017
Walnut Hill Art Festival
Dallas, TX     —     http://www.whumc.com/walnut-hill-art-festival.html
One-Day Arts Festival
   This is the third year for this small, one-day art event. It's right here in my own neighborhood in Dallas, so how could I say no? They are still keeping things tight and jumping, doing just the single day, a Saturday show, with a nice mix of artists to browse works from before Christmas. Drop on by, and help me help them to build this up into a big festival over the next few years-- then we can both brag that "we were there from the start"!

Funky Finds A Holiday Shopping Experience
Ft. Worth, TX     —    funkyfinds.com/holiday.html
A Handmade Arts and Crafts Event
    I like their slogan: "Dedicated to promoting indie artists, crafters & designers worldwide". Very different from the usual "big-painting" street festivals, I like the mix of stuff that all the exhibitors bring to this, and am pleased to be a small part of it with my own artwork. Setting up around 150 artists and crafters in the long Small Exhibits Building on the grounds of the Will Rogers Memorial Center. Best to check out their website for more details as they add links to the artists, and fill you in more of the free giveaways and such that will also be offered. Come on by and you are sure to find a unique Christmas gift for someone that you will know they do not already have!

Grapevine Library Holiday Art Show

Grapevine Library Holiday Art Show
Grapevine, TX     —    www.ci.grapevine.tx.us/index.aspx?NID=312
art & crafts fair
    This is a small, but very "cozy" show in a large exhibit area at the front of the library building, and how many art shows do you get to attend that are not only indoors, but have carpet under your feet, too? Come out and pick up a few gifts for friends and loved ones- or drag them along with you, and show them the pieces that you want them to get for you!

Walnut Hill Winter Wonderland Holiday Market
December
16, 2017
Walnut Hill Winter Wonderland Holiday Market
Dallas, TX     —    walnuthillpta.org/events/winter-wonderland/
art & crafts fair
    The Walnut Hill Elementary School is just down the road from me, so when I saw signs that they were going to have their first-ever Holiday gift market, I figured I should check it out! The fact that they are also going to try for a Worlds Record in forming a human candy cane was just icing on the cake- or striping on the cane, as the case may be. If you've still got some holiday gifts to check off on your "to do" list, come on by between 10 AM and 4 PM this Saturday!

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!

    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!

Deep Ellum Arts Festival

6 - 8 / 2018
Deep Ellum Arts Festival
Dallas, TX     —    www.meifestivals.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.

Come on by!

   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

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!
