For the first time in years, I will be opening the studio to visitors who wish to stop by and take in the extensive collections of paintings, drawings, sketches, books, prints, and other arts on display and for sale around the studio.

Saturday  February 7, 2015
12 – 6 pm
Donato Arts
397 Pacific Street
Brooklyn, NY 11217
New paintings from the 2015 George R.R. Martin A Song of Ice and Fire Calendar will be fresh back from the Society of Illustrators, including oils from my work for National Geographic, Tor Books, Magic: The Gathering, Middle-earth, Disney, and many other projects over the past few years.  Scores of sketches and preliminary drawings never before exhibited at conventions or galleries will also be laid out for perusal.
Discounted prints, books and DVD’s will be available to those who make the trip. 
I’ve included a few shots of works already hanging as well as a sample of the pieces to be on display throughout the four floors.  As much as is shown here, it is just a teaser for what will be on exhibition!

A new monumental canvas of Beren and Luthien in the Court of Thingol and Melian, from J.R.R. Tolkien’s the Silmarillion is in progress in the studio for those who would like an early peek at a work in development.  The final canvas will be 9′ x 5′.

I will be present the entire afternoon, so feel free to stop by and talk some art!
