DesignPhiladelphia was very busy for the studio with the Tyler School of Art's "Art Market" screen printing demonstrations and the 'Take a Seat' Fundraising Festival opening event!

Unfortunately the CandyCoated spirit tour, 'Wanderlusting' was postponed due to a calamity of events including the inane government shutdown and a 102 degree fever...bummers.

But all is not lost, a feature length film of 'Wanderlusting' is still in the works...
stay tuned for developmental details of this fascinating smooshing of parallel historic and contemporary mystical worlds! 

Happy Halloween to all and thank you for the bountiful season!
A big thanks to everyone for everything!

Continued love and support has helped my dreams come true and continues to do so! For
