Early Bird Painters Show

Posted on Thursday 14 February 2008

I will be in this small group show in San Francisco, Early Bird Painters’ Show

2/20 – 3/9 at Studio Gallery

The opening reception is on Sat evening 2/23 from 4-8pm

1718 Polk Street Bet Clay and Washington

San Francisco, CA


This is a show of 11 artists who all have day jobs (mostly at Pixar) but wake up early to do a quick morning painting session before they go to work. It’s a small gallery but you can see some nice pieces by dedicated artists. The group includes my long time heros like Bill Cone and Sharon Calahan, and all the incredible co leagues such as Enrico Casarosa, Robert Kondo, Jennifer Chan, Ernesto Nemesio, Noah Klocek, Nick Sung, and a few outside illustrator friends Mike Dutton and Jimmy G.

Come on out to meet us at the reception! We’ll be happy to see you.

Broadway Tunnel!

    Beautiful painting, Dice! Yummy colors and lighting. I really love the blue and the simple shapes. Wish I could be there to see this show. I missed out coming out there last month cause I had some other things going on. Soon though. I’m going to Japan next month!! Hope you’re doing well.
