Leia on the Death Star
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.

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.

Bea Arthur in Mos Eisley-The Star Wars Holiday Special
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.

The big kids' show is up at Brew House until June 1st.

Workshop Madness!
Friday, March 29, 2019
I am doing a workshop at PLAZA Artist Materials April 19th kicking off our Urban Sketching Topics series: Simplify the Structure: Quick sketching complex scenes with Christina Wald

Sometimes it is overwhelming to figure out where to start when drawing a complex cityscape, building, or interior. The workshop will have tips and demos for sketching on the go.

Steam Powered by Christina Wald
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

The Justice League Adventuring Party
I am a part of this fun show opening on the 11th!

“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.

Performances: TBA

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.
