Where the Pen is mighty & Story is everything

This doodle from Friday looked like it needed some cleaning up.
It was a good night :)
Hiya Folks! Not to worry, my shameless self promotion ends tonight, because tonight, at the gallery, is going to be the official opening, of sorts, for my show, Cabinet of Curiosities! Kym Bushong’s show, Dirt Roads I’ave Known” is going to be the headliner, and her art is really fantastic, truly! So, if any of you fine folks are going to be anywhere near Crawfordsville, Indiana, pop on by The Athens of Indiana Arts Studio & Gallery! There’s going to be music, art, and good company! Hope you folks have a brilliant day :)
Alrighty, folks, the shameless self-promotion starts NOW! I have an upcoming show at the @athensarts gallery all month, but if you kind folks are anywhere near Crawfordsville, Indiana, come on over the night of the 22nd of this month (this upcoming Friday), and there will be a big gala for a good friend of mine, Kym Bushong, but you can meander around the gallery and see some amazing art (even some doodles by yours truly). Hope to see you folks there! :)
WAHOO!!! This is tremendous! I’m very excited about this :) For anyone who’s near Crawfordsville, Indiana, stop by the Athens Art Gallery and you can see some of my doodles plus some really, really, REALLY stunning bits of work from other friends of mine! On August 22nd there’s going to be a big get-together (from 6-8 pm) for Kym Bushong’s show: “Dirt Roads I’ave Known” which is going to be amazing. While you’re admiring her brilliant work, if you meander a little further you can take a gander at my work there, too. It’s going to be a good night, comrades!

An open call to action to ALL artists everywhere! 
Announcing WORLD ART DROP DAY on September 2nd
All artists, (that means students and professionals, painters and cartoonists, sculptors and illustrators, animators and fine artists, EVERYONE who creates) this September 2nd is World Art Drop Day. Wherever you find yourself that day, drop a piece of your art and tell someone where to find it. The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there’s nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.
I recently just finished a cross-country art drop this summer and it was exhilarating. The emails and responses I received from the finders ran the gamut of funny to touching. I want that for everyone!
Here’s how it works:
Draw a picture and hide it somewhere.
Take a photo of either the art or the hiding spot or a combination of both.
Post the image, the city you dropped it in, and a hint on any social media of your choice. Be sure to included the hashtag: #artdropday
Then move on, hoping someone finds it. OR hang around and meet your new friend.
That’s it!
I need your help spreading the word on this. Reblog it, retweet it, facebook it, or even tell someone in person!
September 2nd, lets connect the whole planet with art!

This sounds amazing! Will you folks kindly help kindle this flame?Cheers, A. Taylor
