|May the Fourth Episode IV: A New Hope|
Thursday, May 09, 2019
This year's May the Fourth Celebration was a huge success. We had some of the best art ever and our first Kids Art Show at the Cincinnati Public Library.
|Leia on the Death Star|
These are the pieces I have in the show. The Leia piece was a digital demo for my NKU illustration students. It can be purchased here and a portion of the proceeds go to Force for Change. https://www.brewhouse.com/product-page/christina-wald-leia-on-the-death-star
I tried out a different painting technique for my Bea Arthur. I have taught along David Michael Beck at the Art Academy for a couple years and designed to try out his mixed media technique for this illustration.

We got over 150 entries to the May the Fourth Kid's Art Show! It was an honor to judge them; so much talent and creativity. Thanks to the Cincinnati Public Library for all their support! The kids' art show will be up until May 11th.

|Jules Verne Show|

I recently did a piece for the Jules Verne Expo in London. I chose The Steam House because the lure of illustrating a steam powered mechanical elephant was irresistible.

|Ral Buldhar: A Dungeons and Dragons Art Show|
Saturday, January 05, 2019
I am a part of this fun show opening on the 11th!
|The Justice League Adventuring Party|
“At the confluence of The Cascades and the River Eyathyr, three great kingdoms also intersect. Between them all is a towering spire of rock, buttressed by enormous stone monoliths in the form of ancient giants. Atop this spire, creatures of all races meet to trade, negotiate, argue, and find their fortunes. This is Ral Buldhar, the City of Giants.”
In the summer of 2018, twelve writers, performers, and artists, strangers to each other, assembled in Cincinnati to undertake the adventure of a lifetime: a campaign of Dungeons and Dragons. Split evenly into two tables of six, this group of met weekly for three months to roll dice, role play, laugh, and explore Ral Buldhar - where fate had greatness in store for each of them.
On January 11th, we invite you to the opening of an art show made up of work from their experience playing together.
The Game Masters: Jeb Brack & Alexa Justice
The Players: Aiesha Little, Anissa Pulcheon, Christina Wald, Gabrielle Lanza, Geoffrey Woolf, Jay B. Kalagayan, John Sebastian, L.D. Nehls, Marcus Donaldson, & Scott Holzman.
We also did a radio play and there is a lot of cool art!
