Muppet Rawk 2

Muppet Rawk? "What's that?", you might ask? Just like the flyer says:

"A pop culture tribute to the imaginative world of Jim Henson and the art of rock album covers."

This Saturday will be the opening night for Muppet Rawk 2 at Ouch My Eye Gallery in Seattle, WA. If you want to check out the post from the last show with some photos from the opening night and the piece I did for that show, click here. This year's show is already getting some heat online. Here's an image of one of the pieces over at Boing Boing (in Borat voice: "Very nice!") There will also be prints for sale of most of the pieces the night of the opening.

This month, Seattle's EMP will also have a huuuuge Jim Henson exhibit. The exhibition features 100 original artworks, including drawings, cartoons and storyboards that illustrate Henson’s talent as a storyteller and visionary. That exhibit will be up from May 23rd-August 16th. That is a definite DO NOT MISS exhibit. Can't wait to check that out.

Well, I just handed you a double dosage of Muppets that you will be able to check out this month if you're in Seattle. I'll be posting my piece soon, and will hopefully have pics from the show to share, so, stay tuned.

Hope to see you this Saturday!

We didn't get to meet on Saturday, but I wanted to let you know that I really dig your pieces. The Animal / Iron Maiden cover was perfect. Your new one gives me great inspiration.
