North Country Arts Council Fall Show

I'll be heading to Watertown, NY this Friday to attend the opening of the annual NCAC Fall Art Show. It's going to be quite a large show, with something like 200 pieces. I'll have 2 watercolors and 2 oil paintings in the show, including my alien paintings from Jerk Magazine :)

If you're in the area, stop by the Dulles State Office Building Friday night! There will be live music and appetizers and from what I've seen so far, some really great art.

Penguin-Random House Merger

This is the first I'm hearing of this! Apparently the two behemoth publishers are currently in talks to merge, nothing decided as of yet. Hit up the article below:

Penguin-Random House Merger Talks: Rumors Confirmed

October 25, 2012

Pearson notes recent media coverage regarding Penguin, its consumer publishing division, and Random House (part of Bertelsmann). Pearson confirms that it is discussing with Bertelsmann a possible combination of Penguin and Random House. The two companies have not reached agreement and there is no certainty that the discussions will lead to a transaction. A further announcement will be made if and when appropriate.

If anything changes, I hope it's for the better, resulting in more opportunities for poor starving illustrators like me.
