The Owls hung at Youtopia Festival in San Diego

I was very excited to be able to hang all three owl pieces together last weekend at the Youtopia Festival in San Diego. I’ve been dreaming of a time when they would all be together in the trees and that dream finally came true. A big thank you to the art staff at Youtopia who awarded me my first art grant and to my artist Nino Alicea who helped me to hang the pieces in the trees (by climbing them). You can see a bunch of awesome pictures after the jump.

Y.A.W.Y.E. – Kickstarter

The kids’ show I wrote for, “You Are What You Eat” is raising money via Kickstarter to fund its first season. This show does a great job of mixing humor and lessons, nutrition and playing with your food, music and visuals. If we teach our youth how to eat well now, they’ll live better later. Any little bit helps. Produced by Switch Studios. See the sizzle reel after the jump. THANKS!
