It's been awhile, I know! Well, what can I say?
I needed to take a break from the art world to figure things out for myself. Gather all thoughts and figure out what I wanted to do next with D.Kerper Arts. So far I'm deathly excited for Long Beach Comic Con and the future shows I have mapped out (see events).
I'm trying to understand what the best place to make the best quality shirts, hats, and boards for you all. I am hoping to go local and support Fresno the way it has supported me. But it is hard with a budge like mine. I'm happy to see the horizon and be able to walk into State College next year!!! I can't believe it's finally going to happen, and I can't wait to bring my art along with me.
So much is going on in my personal life that I can't believe I'm still standing. But the best thing is the support I get from all of you. I can't wait to take on new challenges and show off my new series I have plotted out.
For Long Beach Comic Con, I will be making a tribute to (drum roll.......) Beauty and the Beast! I KNOW!! I have had something haunting me to obsess over this movie for some odd reason. Belle was my favorite Disney princess as a child and I thought maybe my childhood was just reaching out to me... turns out (in case you live under a rock) the new live action film will be in theaters NEXT YEAR and we will be celebrating 25 years of the animated film (I don't feel old inside, no [pft!]) ..
I can't wait to get through this and see what more projects I can line up in the near future. For now, the mural I previously announced ended up dropping. But that is ok! With one bust comes another great opportunity! Never give up and pout at it all. No time for that!!
I hope you all have a great summer as I will be trying my best to continue with updates and so forth!! I'm so excited for future shows and I can't wait to see you all in support of local art love!!
