Something I'm learning about art: you get your heart broken sometimes.

My Capitol Hill art show for October has been cancelled--or at least postponed until January--because someone in the organization made some promises and then didn't keep them. After a couple of months of getting up at 6am to draw and then staying up an extra hour at night to matte pictures, you can guess I'm pretty pissed off about it.* Someone else was also scheduled for October, also signed a contract, and moreover they showed up first.

This isn't the fault of the fine folks at Cupcake Royale. The person who scheduled the show doesn't even work there any more). It's not the fault of other artist, who makes pretty cool looking mythic figures painted on big sheets of what appears to be plywood.

So 101 microdungeons have been packed away and three large professionally-framed pictures are going to hang on my living room wall for a while longer. Come January we'll do it all again, but this time with booze , homebrew, music, and dancing girls, and it will all kick even more ass, I swear.

Also, I'm waking this blog up again so I can show you some of the dungeons I've drawn in the last few months while I've been focusing on art shows and stuff.

* Actually the second time this happened with the same organizer. Fool me twice.

Sorry to hear that. Better luck next time. If you ever have a show in AZ, let me know!

Thanks, Jim. I'm purely local talent right now, but I might get out there someday!

Too bad - be sure to post if the DC thing works out. I'm local and would love to see your work up close!

Sad to hear the bad news. I've been really enjoying your microdungeons though, and looking forward to seeing some more!

Alas, it's not that Capitol Hill! :) Up here in Seattle, we flatter ourselves by talking about Capitol Hill and expecting people to know what we mean. I did live in DC for a while, though, and would love to get back.

Hang in there! I skipped a big art show this year, then checked it out and was really kicking myself for not getting involved, which was my own fault. Best of luck for January, make the best of it.
