Don’t do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your ass off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts.

With Marvel Premier wrapped up and the next set on the horizon not quite ready to prep for, I’d like to remind everyone of a couple of things.

I do commissions.  Any size, trading card size, 11×14, 16×20, I’ve even done a giant wooden commission.  Please don’t hesitate to inquire about a piece for your home or office.

A couple of commission examples.

And please don’t forget to check out the online shop, lots of cool hand painted art to be had over there.

When creating little pieces of art, big or small I typically use RustOleum paint 90 percent of the time.  I’ve played with lots of paint, cheap to expensive.  I’ve come to like the Ultra Cover 2X.  It’s thin enough to get in the little spots, but thick enough not to run all over the place.

A few behind the scenes images of what I work with.

So a couple of week’s ago was the ArtsGoggle in Fort Worth.  We set up early and had a pretty good time.

But.

There’s always a but.

The wind totally score boarded me.  Three to zero.

I’ll be here this weekend.

ArtsGoggle, the twice-yearly celebration of art, artists and music in Fort Worth, Texas’ Near Southside, is expecting another tremendous turnout on Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 4 to 10 pm. 

Since its inception in 2003, ArtsGoggle has evolved into a popular festival of the arts in this eclectic neighborhood of historic elegance and urbanism immediately south of the central business district of Fort Worth. This free to the public, family-friendly event attracts a crowd as diverse as the neighborhood itself with live music, artistic displays of every kind, food, drink, and fun for everyone. Public support has increased rapidly, as evidenced by ArtsGoggle’s selection as the Best Gallery Art Show of the Last 12 Months by Fort Worth Weekly readers in 2007 and 2008.

This year 70 businesses in the Near Southside will become art venues and open their doors to show off the work of a variety of local artists. The public is invited to park their cars and rediscover this revitalized urban neighborhood by foot, Molly the Trolley, bicycle or pedi-cab.  For the third time, the event will take place on Saturday afternoon instead of Friday evening, with extended hours to allow visitors time to enjoy all the art and music.  ArtsGoggle visitors strolling along Magnolia Avenue after dark will see how the recently installed tree lights have transformed that street into one of Fort Worth’s most distinctive destinations, as well as Main Street and Park Place.

ArtsGoggle is presented by Fort Worth South, Inc., the non-profit redevelopment organization working to revitalize this important urban neighborhood. Each year record ArtsGoggle attendance attests to the success of Fort Worth South, Inc. and the Near Southside community.  For more information on ArtsGoggle, and Fort Worth South, Inc.,  visit www.fortworthsouth.org

ArtsGoggle is a grassroots gallery crawl held twice a year since 2004. Around 60 Near Southside businesses are transformed into art galleries for a Saturday evening each spring and fall, hosting artists and musicians from the neighborhood and throughout the region.

Here is a very small sampling of what I’ll have with me.
