Curioso this Saturday.

Three person show at Thinkspace Gallery this Saturday! I'm really excited for this show, plus I'll be in attendance. I could use the trip. There's an awesome full page ad in the current issue of Juxtapoz magazine. Go get one! The issue features a tribute to the Beastie Boys. WOOOOORD!

The gallery also put out a great write up about all three artists written by Marieke Treilhard.

Awesomeness for hire!

Well folks, the time has come to put out some good energy and see what comes back. I'm currently looking for part time employment to help supplement some income while I pursue a career as a full time artist. All potential employers are welcome to contact me with offers. 
Most of my experience has been in the art field in sales and behind the scenes for over 10 years. In this day and age it doesn't seem too unconventional to blog or use the internet as a tool for self promotion. Life is an adventure and one must use whatever tools at their disposal in order to get where they want to go. So I'm putting out the bat signal, universe. As Joseph Campbell says: when you are on your path, doors will open where there never doors before. 
Here I am. 
I will gladly provide a resume upon request. Potential prospects can contact me at: frankigonz@yahoo.com
