MIMZY

Here's a new print of "The Mimz" - The good thing abt. working freelance in the fashion industry is that the month of August is super quiet for me, which affords me a ton of free time to work on other projects, this was one of them.





If anyone is interested in a commisioned piece of your pet, let me know. I can provide you with a small edition on archival quality paper and provide you with a digital version for you to use however you would like. ;0) FYI - This piece is only 5.5" X 5.5"

"D" IS FOR DOG DOO - AlphaBerube

"FAMILY PORTRAIT"

I'm presently working on a fictional "Family Portrait" collaboration with fellow MailArtist comrades, Jennifer Kosharek of Eve-N-Odd Gallery fame and DEWI Johan of MOOP (Museum of Ornamental Posts fame.


The family starts out with a triptych of Mother, Daughter and Son-in-law. Each of the 3 of us are starting out with one of the initial family members and then sending the image on to the next person until all 3 of us have left out mark on the subjects of the triptych.

This is my initial contribution of the Son-in-law.


This is Jennifer Kosharek's contribution of the Daughter (Married to my Son-in-law).


And from the Daughter and Son-in-law comes the rest of the family. Each of the 3 of us get one of the couples offspring, 2 girls and one boy, to further create a "family".

I have the eldest daughter to begin my family. This is her as a young teenager.

NEW ARTWORK AVAILABLE AT eve-N-odd GALLERY



Jennifer Kosharek, owner/curator of eve-N-odd Gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida has a new show opening up on April 9th. The theme: THE STUFFED BUNNY SHOW.

I've been wanting to try something a little different with my linocuts, so the challenge to make a stuffed bunny with a linocut image as both the front and back was a welcome challenge. I ended up with an edition of 12 printed, sewn and stuffed BERUBE BUNNIES. Each comes with a hand-printed signed linocut tag with the edition number. Not wanting the bunnies to escape, I also created a small coat hanger wire basket to keep them safe until they find their new homes. Please contact the Gallery for purchases. The bunnies are only $20/ea and there's a limited quantity. Get them while they're still available.







Also available for purchase is a small edition of the BERUBE BUNNIES linocut on 100% acid free paper. $30/each



As part of a collaborative effort with eve-N-odd Gallery, I also created and printed up a Berube-Bug celebrating the Gallery. A small edition of the print is also available while we print some t-shirts up to also have for sale in the Gallery. Print $30/each

"FINLANDIA" PORTFOLIO SUBMISSION

Early last summer I was asked by Ron Abram, Associate Professor of Drawing & Printmaking at Denison University, Granville, Ohio if I'd be interested in contributing to a printmakers portfolio addressing the subject matter of Equilibrium using Tom of Finland as the jumping off point. The portfolio will be exhibited as part of the SGC (Southern Graphics Council) International's conference being held on the campus of Washington University at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, March 16-19, 2011.

Needless to say, I was more than thrilled to be given the challenge of creating my response to one of my favorite Artist/Illustrators.

Here is the direction I chose.

Inked Linoleum


Hanging to Dry
