Getting Ready, here is a clip from last year.
I am honored and a bit shocked to have two of my drawings included in American Illustration 37. I also included photos of great work by a bunch of other artists I admire in the book.
In weird Wisconsin news, Green Mini Demo Derby, a solar powered remote control car demolition derby, will be at the Energy Fair in Custer, WI again this year. June 15-17, 2018. The Derby happens Friday and Saturday at 8pm.
Also, I am pretty thrilled Jeremy Scahill will be a keynote speaker this year.

New work by Makeal Flammini and Colin Matthes
Galerie Kenilworth is pleased to announce its fourth exhibition, Domestic Animals, featuring new paintings by Milwaukee artists Colin Matthes and Makeal Flammini. Having lived and created as nomads for nearly a decade, the addition of two children and an east-side Victorian has turned their freedom into domesticity. This, their first exhibition together, creates a moment of reflection, as they create new work in response to their new, fully domestic, and sometimes isolated lives.
Both artists draw heavily from lived experience, and the new feats and challenges that come with parenthood provide ample material to draw from. With an affinity for line and narrative, each responds to parenting, marriage, and the anxieties surrounding societal and financial concerns in different ways. This exhibition highlights the divergent directions their work takes, while being informed by similar experiences.
There will be an opening reception Friday 3/23, from 6–9pm. Hors D’Oeuvres and refreshments will be provided; both artists will be in attendance.
