Pidgey Used Gust!

Egads, another update? Shocking, I know! Lots of things have been happening in my life, both good and bad, and that along with getting work done for the end of the semester means I'm crazy busy- more artwork will be posted soon, but unfortunately keeping my blog updated has to take the backseat for now.

However, since the opening is coming so soon, and my fellow participants have been posting their work, I figured I should toss this up. I was lucky to be accepted into the Pokemon Battle Royale show (opening April 20th) at the Light Grey Art Gallery earlier in the semester. We were given our choice of Pokemon from a list, and I ended up with the adorable Pidgey! Who doesn't like this guy? Pidgey was a staple Pokemon of the early generations of the game (and was one of the first Pokemon you encounter in the wild!) and has some pretty dang awesome evolutions- I'm a huge sucker for Pidgeot!

I'm completely honored to be featured among amazing artists such as Sam Bosma, Kali Ciesemier, Meg Hunt, Mare Odomo, Julian Callos, Annie Wu, Nick Iluzada, and many other inspirational illustrators, classmates, and friends (a full list of the participants in the show can be found here). Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to the opening, but I hope everyone who lives in the area will go! The print of this piece will even be able to be purchased there for $40- I'm not planning on selling any other copies of this, so it's your only chance to get this in physical form!
