2014 Artvoice Best of Buffalo

#GhoulMourningManiacs!!

Artvoice best of Buffalo winnersI’m very happy and thrilled beyond belief, to announce that I won “Best Painter” in Artvoice’s Best of Buffalo 2014 awards!! I started really pursuing painting in 2012 at the behest of my friend Mike. I made it to the final 5 last year, and since then I’ve pushed myself to get to a better level of skill. Having both Lloyd Kaufman and Bill Oberst Jr. refer to you as a “Renaisance Man” will give you that kick in the ass, to do so. I will keep on doing so- there’s no sense in staying in neutral.

Being acknowledged/rewarded on any level for your passion, is such a thrill! I have to thank each and every one of you Maniacs, because I couldn’t have gotten this without you! It really means a million megatons of WOW! to me, and I can’t wait to receive the actual award and share it.

Congrats to all the nominees and my friends that won for their respective categories- some fellow Tromaville/Return to Nuke ‘Em High fiends, like Arlowe Price, Greg Hinaman , AJ Crescendo were winners- plus Daniel James!

Now… coffee and picking up the brushes…

Canadian Haunted Attractions Conference

Ghoul Mourning, Maniacs!

I had the pleasure of being a guest in Guelph, Canada at the Canadian Haunted Attractions Conference. I had a blast and met Naomi Grossman- Pepper – from American Horror Story: Asylum. I also met Johnny Ghoulash, a fellow actor in Return to Nuke ‘Em High. We figured out by comparing cell phone photos, that we were in scenes together- and didn’t realize it!!
Also, I met Gothic Gourd Sculptor and the people from Shock Stock!!

I had a great time and hope to return—
