Posted in feed with tags , , , , , on January 21, 2012 by shawn dubin

i’m going back to school for the first time in too many years for me to count here. strangely, i’m not as nervous as i had imagined. i’m enrolled in the university of the arts’ continuing education certificate program for communication and web design. going to try to customize it a bit to get some print stuff in there considering that’s one of the directions i want to go in.  starting with two classes for the spring semester. somewhat excited.

in terms of conventioneering, i’ll be returning to the convention circuit with dreary and naughty merchandise (books, dolls and lunchboxes), original artwork (including the darques, halloween kids and more), prints and stray toys that take up too much room in my basement. so far, i’ve booked tables for march’s monster mania in cherry hill, new jersey and august/september’s horrorfind weekend in gettysburg, pennsylvania.  pete stathis and i are talking about sharing a table in the artist’s alley at the philadelphia wizard world comic con in june as well.  looking for even more.

So much has transpired since we last spoke, blog.

I’m presently on hiatus from tattooing to pursue other aspects of my art.  This is going to mean a larger presence at conventions and festivals.  Just signed up for Monster Mania in Cherry Hill in March.  I’ll be there all weekend selling original paintings and illustrations as well as copies of my work with Glen Feulner, “Worlds Without End” and “Dreary and Naughty”(with John LaFleur) books and merchandise.  Currently looking in to comic cons and area street festivals.

Been renovating my parents’ house in Overbrook Park with my good friend, Jim Cameron.  Nearing completion.  Once finished, it’s full time in to comic books, paintings, and design.  Also signing up for a certificate program at the University of the Arts beginning this spring.

Full. Plate.
