I’ve been in a family trip in the last few days. zero internet, what is not all bad since i don’t get so distracted and can focus on reading and sketching. but it was extra good to come home and find out that Duality was accepted into the Masquerade group show, which will happen at the Gallery 101, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. that will be my first group show in an actual gallery, and I am pretty excited about it. and after several days attempting to put ideas together, i have […]
