Canadian Thanksgiving is a little different than the American version. I think it has less to do with history and more to do with end of harvest celebrations. In any case, a big hearty meal is always welcome and as a side note I couldn't figure out of to work in a Tofurki so my apologies to all the vegetarians. I drew in plenty of veggies to make everyone happy. Enjoy.

For those who always ask a show preview will be posted here a week before the opening date so keep checking back.
This will be the last figure-based show for 2010. I'm going to finish off the season by concentrating on some contemporary work that I've been itching to start. Seems like there is a positive to an economic down-turn because it's lending me some time to experiment and have some fun with some large scale pieces.
Enjoy the show - Mister Atomos

(WYNWOOD ART DISTRICT)
I just launched my 4th Annual Cycloptic Studio Sale for 2010. This year I'm trying to raise enough money to finish my spring shows (paint isn't cheap) and get myself to Miami for the Harold Golen opening on May 8th. It's been a challenging economic season and I have to keep this art train rolling. I get art supplies, you get cheap art. Good deal huh? Included in this years show are some older framed pieces and quite a few of my 6" MINI paintings. Prices include shipping within Canada & the U.S.A. International shipping will need to be quoted. Each piece comes in a blonde-wood frame and is sealed under glass for your protection (excluding MINI's which are painted on cradled canvas). Please no holds, barters, or bargaining. First come first serve. Sale ends May 1st, 2010.
This frosty weekend I'll be participating in the 10th Annual Shiny Fuzzy Muddy show, which has always been one of my favourite Vancouver Christmas events. I was honoured that they asked me to participate this in year's collection. As you know I don't do a lot of Vancouver shows so come down and meet me in the flesh. I'll be showing some of my MINI paintings as well at selling our Atomic Juice Company children's wear. Admission is free and there's an opening party Saturday night from 7-9pm.

I had a few people at the Victoria scooter rally this year ask about Rotten Rudy, the fedora wearing skull-head I designed in the mid 90's. I used to hand him out at rally's in hope that people would stick them on their Vespa's or Lambrettas and send me photos. Over the years I collected quite a few photos of Rotten Rudy on all sorts of vehicles in North America and Europe. So when I was asked to be apart of the Los Vesparados show in Minneapolis this year I decided to resurected Rudy for one last ride.
Los Vesparados opens June 13th, 2009 at 6:00pm and shows for the weekend. It will be in the gallery on the third floor of the Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St. NE in Minneapolis.
Heres a few pictures from the Billy Shire Fine Arts show in Chicago. The event was hosted at DvA Gallery on April 26, 2008. It was an good turnout, lots of amazing people under one roof. Thanks goes out to Billy Shire, David and Vicki Van Alphen, and Annie Adjchavanich for letting me apart of this cool event. You can see the photos here.
