New Work for 2011!

With so Many Personalities, Who will She be Today?Hello Altered Barbie Fans!

I am very excited for Altered Barbie 2011 exhibition, What Would Barbie Do? And Ken Too?! What a great theme. Over the past few weeks, I have been working like a mad man to create new images for the show. Here's is a sneak peek at my newest image:

With So Many Personalties, Who Will She Be Today, 2011

Dear Altered Barbie Artists,

I am organizing a bunch of us to work on a group piece for the Altered Barbie Show this year ......something we could split up and work on and put back together.

I got the idea from Jody to make it a fundraiser.....we could auction it or raffle it off and split the money with the show.

I am very excited about this……having done this kind of project before, it is inspiring, and fun, and just amazing the way it works out. All we need is a really good idea.

If you are interested in working on the group piece for the show this year, I will have a meeting at my house on Sat Aug 27th to start planning. Let me know if you are interested and what time you could be here.

Please email or call-415-756-6405 ……any questions????

Looking forward to hearing from you….and seeing you too!!
