Reimagine 13th Street Celebration

Last Thursday I participated in the Reimagine 13th Street event with several other artists, vendors, and food trucks. This event is “to help residents “reimagine” what the corridor could look like with fewer, slower traffic lanes, on-street parking and revived businesses along the route.” (Read more here).

In addition to setting up some artwork and jewelry to sell, I also helped Midtown Columbus prepare for the celebration by painting the windows of the mostly empty center to give people an idea of what could be there.

FanFest 2017

I had a blast at FanFest last weekend with my makerspace ColumbusMakesIT! While they held down the fort in the teen area with cool robots and legobot battles, I hosted a few panels on cosplay and participated in the celebrity costume challenge. Thank you for having us, Columbus Public Library!

Country’s BBQ – Vintage Greyhound Logo

Yesterday I had the honor of painting the iconic vintage greyhound-turned-dining room of Country’s BBQ on Broadway. I am so excited that people will see a little something of mine everyday! And if it was done well enough, they may not even realize it as they will think it was there the whole time.

I mean, how many artists can say they got to paint on a 1947 silverside greyhound bus? That people eat in? See more pictures here.

Strut the Hooch Parade

I wore my Ecto-1 in the 3rd Annual Strut the Hooch Parade on Saturday! It was fun to get to wear this costume that has been put away since Dragon Con!

Thanks to the Ledger Enquirer and Grace and Charm Photography for these great shots!

Recap of week 3! I’m a little late in posting, but I had an exciting and busy week!

K9 Poodle Skirt

Since I am totally obsessed with Doctor Who, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to make this skirt happen. A group of us were planning on going to see Grease at the Springer Opera House  and we turned it into a costumed event. I painted K9 on my skirt. Get it?! Ahhh I can’t stop laughing at this!
