Baltimore Comic-Con - Here I come! Booth A78

Hey guys!

I've been visiting in NJ the past week, catching up with the fam and creating new memories :).  I'm back in the DC area now, so I wanted to share a couple updates and reminders:

  • I'll be at Baltimore Comic Con this year as part of the Artist Alley!  I was recently given my booth assignment and wanted to share it with you guys!  I'll be in Booth A78 the entire time from 9/2-9/4/16.  For more information, please visit the event page here.
  • The 1460 Wallmountables show is still going strong!  It will be up until 8/28, so try to stop by sometime before then to view my work in person and to view some other wonderful art from a whole batch of DC-area artists.

That's it for now!  Thanks everyone <3.

- J.D.

Shop Now Open! (and Facebook Page Update!)

I'm excited to say that I just opened up shop on my website!  Though most of my art items are available to purchase at my Etsy Store, you will now be able to purchase many of my polymer clay sculptures and fine art prints through my Art Shop!

Also - if you can, please follow me on my Facebook Page.  To celebrate reaching over 1500 likes recently, I am releasing a special free shipping code exclusively to my Facebook followers tomorrow.  Don't miss out!

I'll be heading into DC tomorrow to add 3 of my artworks to DC Arts Center's Wallmountables 2016! The show will run from Friday, 7/15/16 to Sunday, 8/28/16.  I'll be adding the following to the show:

Day 1: The show is about to begin!

Awesome Con was such a blast that I can't stop thinking about how much fun Hank, Cynthia and I had, even though it was 2 weeks ago! I loved being part of the Artist Alley and making new friends.  Thanks so much to all those who stopped by and to my wonderfully, super customers 💖.  You all rock!  I can't wait to participate in another 🤓.

Why I create:

One of the best feelings is to make someone's day with my art!  Here is a beautiful comment I received from the winner of my recent giveaway:
