Here’s my Time Out Chicago post of art shows to see this month.
Other Chicago stuff:
- The Chicago Artists Group Portrait (mentioned in the previous post) was incredible. (I sat behind two dogs. Perfection.) Thanks to Jason Lazarus for masterminding it—look out for his official image around August 1!—and thanks to The Chicago Reader for featuring my snapshot from that day in Best of Chicago 2015. (Flashback to the last year The Reader had a “Best Local Visual Arts Blog” category and guess who won, thanks to the best global blog following?)
And personal stuff:
- Seriously considering using this or this as my headshot for the children’s books I’m writing and illustrating. (When I was that age, I was doodling satirical newspapers like this one. Not sure which is my favorite: the President’s “sexual affair customers,” my downright wacky Mulan parody, Dennis Rodman as a literal Worm, or Michael Jordan auditioning for the Spice Girls. Zeitgeist.)
- I started a 500px. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (And was already spotlighted on the site’s Twitter. Thank you!) Since I’m slightly more discerning with what I upload there, however, you can find more of my photos on Instagram, Tumblr, and Pinterest.
