Broken Hearted Journal of Carl Von Grumpadump.

My newest solo art show debuts on Final Friday June 24th. This is a huge show for me, and I'm excited to share the work.
Here's the promo for the show.

On October 23, 1963, Mary Von Grumpadump and her husband, Carl, had an argument that led to her running to the forest behind their small home, never to be seen again.
After three days of searching and hoping she would come back, Carl Von Grumpadump packed a small bag and ventured into the forest, swearing he would not return until he found his true love. He was never heard from again.
On December 28, 2015, Carl’s bag was found close to their old Southern Kentucky home, his journal among a few rusty old items inside. In the journal were surreal accounts of another world and time, filled with descriptions of strange beings and accounts of impossible imagination.
On Final Friday, June 24th, The Frameshop, in collaboration with artist/illustrator/tattooer/gentleman Jaimie C. Filer, will bring these pages to life. Selected pages of Carl’s journal will be displayed along with watercolor illustrations depicting Carl’s mad accounts. Whether these stories are true or hallucinations from Carl’s final moments, they will be displayed for you to see.
Come and explore the world that the “Broken Hearted Journal of Carl Von Grumpadump." has created.
