I am very happy to announce that I was picked for Nuvango's contest and won having my art on the back cover of Hi-Fructose!
Pick up the latest issue (issue 33) to see my work on the back cover, and read my interview with Nuvango here.
Good news, I am having my first big solo show In Los Angeles early next year at GALLERY 1988!
For those of you who have been fans long enough, you might remember my first art show. Those who are newer to my work, next year it will be the 10 year anniversary from when I had my very first art show and I completed 100 paintings in 100 days. For my 10 year anniversary show, I'll be doing it again!
In the last 10 years I have come a long way. My paintings from my first show almost look like they were painted by a completely different artist. The first time I did 100 paintings in 100 days, I had the complication of also having a full time job. Although I will be able to focus only on the painting this time, my work has also gotten a lot more detailed, precise and takes much longer. So I suspect I will still be working my ass off to create this series.
I will be starting day one on September 1st. I will be posting progress, as well as some sneak peeks of pieces along the way. I know that working 100 days straight will be hard and I will most likely be a complete mess afterwards, but sometimes art is pain!
Some of the things to expect to see in these 100 days: Pretty girls, circus freaks, four eyed kings, ghost forest girls, a tribute to the lovely and gory art of Anathema Photography, some pieces inspired by Alli Wynn Photography, and some of my favourite alternative models. I'm excited, nervous and can't wait to show you what I have come up with.
You can see progress and sneak peeks from...
This is what 100 wood panels looks like! I can't wait to paint on these Trekell G.H.Simkins panels.
These are images from my first art show 10 years ago. One of the original paintings and the original art display.
It has officially been 10 years since I made this little short film when Graduating from Vancouver Film School. Although I didn't stick with animation for too many years, it is still fun to look back on and see how far I have come. (Sorry the video is a little dark!)
This year was my first year participating in Vancouver's East Side Culture Crawl. I'm so glad that I could finally be a part of it. I'm usually a spectator, but this year since I recently moved into my new studio space at Triumph Ant Studios I finally got to be a part of it. It was so nice to meet new fans, catch up with the fans that have been with me for years, and have a weekend of hanging out with my studio mates.
Here are my studio mates that also participated in the Crawl
A big thanks to the Georgia Straight for doing an awesome little write up on my work. It reads…
Hearts, surf, and skulls emblazon jewellery at the Crawl
Artist Megan Majewski describes her work best when she dubs it “cute ’n’ creepy”. She’s best known for her bizarre paintings of zombie girls, who now haunt vintage-look, ornate oval-frame pendants under hand-poured resin.
Must-Have Piece: Check out the vampire-like Violet portrait. The Ringmaster Skull Necklace, with his candy-cane-striped tophat and a bony hand hanging from the delicate chain, is eerily excellent, too.
Target Crawler: Low-brow-art nuts and Evanescence fans with a Tim Burton fixation.
Here is what my little space looked like during the crawl.
Thanks again everyone who had a chance to drop by!
I love halloween!
Of course, the best day of the year. Halloween ends up being an inspiration for my paintings, and sometimes my paintings end up being an inspiration for my Halloween costumes.
So, which came first, the costume or the painting!?
In all of these pieces, the costume actually was done first then I drew my inspiration from them. All except this years costume as my ringmaster/lion tamer. I drew inspiration from several of my paintings I have done over the years. Now to start thinking of what to be next year.
If you have a Playstation, you can now get my art as a theme from the PS online store. As a collaboration with Disruptive Publishers, my paintings are brought to life with a bit of animation. Go check them out, there will be even more released soon!
If you are around Vancouver this Saturday December 15th, drop by for our open studio sale. We will have snacks, art for sale and will be around to chat. Come by anytime between noon and 5pm. 730 Richards Street.
The event is presented by Imaginary Games, and the artists showing will be myself, Camilla D'errico, and Elin Jonsson.
