i've been invited to contribute an original drawing to a festival called circo volante, which will take place mid-may in cagliari, sardinia. the festival is meant to teach children and teenagers about circus arts, and the illustration exhibition, themed "circo senza animali" ("circus without animals"), will accompany various creative and educational workshops and conferences based around the circus in art.

the traveling sketchbook project exhibition is coming to the hillyer art space in washington, d.c. next month! i was asked to participate - along with a group of other local artists - by filling out a blank moleskine sketchbook for a complementary show called "sketch" at transformer gallery. i am trying to be a little more experimental and free than usual, so am mostly working with cut paper shapes and collage.
