Way back in February (how is it November?), I was invited to come draw on the walls at the new location of the Play Library on Elm St. The PL is a wonderful toy & game loan library, and also hosts the amazing Cincinnati Vintage Toy Museum. At the original location last summer, I hosted a "Kreate-a-Kaiju" workshop, which was a blast. I recently stopped by for the first time in a while, and realized that I had never posted pictures of any of the giant wall drawings. They were a lot of fun to do, even the diving board scene, which was done on a ladder from an awkward angle.
Some of my books & prints are available in the gift shop.
... and then, a great shot from the clay kaiju workshop from last year, and a drawing I did to help promote the original opening.
There is going to be a really cool event coming up a few Saturdays from now. On July 23rd, I am teaming up with the brand new Play Library (a recycled toy and game loan library) in Over-The-Rhine (Cincinnati), right across from historic Findlay Market. We are going to create our own strange, Japanese kaiju-inspired creatures and monsters together! I'll be bringing a few of my own for display, and we will be getting our hands dirty with clay and plenty of drawing supplies to make our own (complete with displaying them on our own little foamboard Tokyo). Additionally, I will be taking your designs (sculpted or drawn) and making you your own fully inked 9x12 drawing, giving your doodle my own take. I will also have signed copies of "Tunnel-Ball" (plus pennants and mugs) for sale .
Here is the event link with the full agenda. It is from 10-1 (so you will still have time to do your important Saturday evening things) and perfect for all ages. The Play Library needs your support and I promise you'll fall in love it when you visit. I certainly did when I went to the grand opening last month. See you there!
