Screen Shot 2013-06-02 at 11.13.32 AMI’ve had a big throbbing art boner for Chris Uminga for several years now.

“Edgy-cute” is his thing and Chris is part of the modern neo-pop art movement.

I met Chris several years ago while exhibiting at Fan Expo in Toronto.

I was immediately IN LOVE with his adorable illustrations and quickly threw all my money at him and came home with a bunch of prints.

Listen here. Today I interview my pal and professional full-time artist Kelly Grace. This is a monster interview – an hour an a half… we talk art and multi-media multiples and personal style and vintage hair… We gossip about the art scene in Toronto and I get to find out about some “copying shenanigans” that […]

When I was 14, I bought a Norman Rockwell agenda. I didn’t make use of the agenda so much as it was a dreamland companion for me. At work, school, on the subway… I could pull out that calendar and browse Rockwell’s paintings and be transported into an alternate reality, rich in detail and depth […]

I decided to use up the rest of 2013’s Feature Friday’s by sharing my very first loves in art. My choices are not cool, inspired or particularly unique. I loved the lovable. And Calvin and Hobbes was ALL lovable. My high school boyfriend fanned the flames of my Calvin and Hobbes fascination. He bought me […]

One thing I love about Steve’s art is his commitment to representing beautiful bigger women. His models are always padded with […]
