Happy Valentine's Weekend from DREGstudios!

Happy Friday the 13th... and Valentine's Day this weekend!  It's a couple of St. Germain cocktails and some quiet time for me with my Valentine tonight.  Saturday night is the big party though at the Valentine's Masquerade hosted by No Egrets Tattoo here in Clarksville.  The extravaganza is curated by Joe Melanson and will feature LIVE music and LIVE art from myself and Wolfman Bennett!  I'll also have a new illustration on display in the art exhibit.  Click HERE for a sneak peek!  For those who join us at the show, there will be some swank prizes for those who wear the best masks so get creative!

A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart. 

Everyday is a bank account, and time is our currency. No one is rich, no one is poor, we’ve got 24 hours each. 

Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one. 

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.

Preview of this Saturday's Valentine's Masquerade and Art Exhibit!

My new work, "For Richer or Poorer" will be on display at No Egrets Tattoo and Art Gallery for their Valentine's Masquerade which takes place this Saturday night.  The new illustration is a very involved piece I created just for the show.  A cartoon heart and human heart are fused over a landscape which gradates from day to night and attempts to capture the duality of love.  Curated by our good friend Joe Melanson, the party will feature live music and artwork from several local artists.  Of course the killer staff of No Egrets will be on hand creating custom body art for folks!  Wear a mask because there will be door prizes for the best ones!

Here are some process pictures from the drawing process of this new work...
