DAVY IS IN AN ART EXHIBIT!

The official announcement will be coming soon. SPOILER: I have been asked to bring the Charmy and the gang from my comic strip, Charmy’s Army, to life in an art exhibit in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas. The show is actually in Keller, Texas. in the ONE big city in Texas where I have not made a comic con appearance. This will be the first time my art has been for sale in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. This will be awesome. I plan on contacting all the comic book shops in this massive landscape to see if they are interested in doing any promotions.

Once I get all these marketing ideas rolling, everyone will be alerted. Prepare to mark your calendars!

APPEARING ALONGSIDE AMAZING TEXAS ARTISTS AND CARTOONISTS!

Keller Town Hall will host 5 paintings by Davy Jones, creator of the comic strip Charmy's Army. Other syndicated cartoonists will be featured as well.

About Keller Town Hall Art Shows – In 2008 the Keller Public Arts Board began using Town Hall as a rotating gallery as an inexpensive method for bringing art to the community. Originally on a monthly rotation, the program now operates on a generally bi-monthly schedule with receptions held on the third Thursday of the first month of each show. Artists are selected by invitation only by the Keller Public Arts Board Chairperson. Most shows have a theme and can feature a variety of media and anywhere from one to dozens of artists in one exhibition. (1)

I cannot begin to tell everyone how excited I am about this show. I have been painting around the clock in preparation for this event. Here is a little secret! The last time I painted with acrylics… or any paint medium, was when I was in college! Yes, it has been 30 plus years since I attempted a real painting. If I never get syndicated and must keep the 40 hour plus day job, I may never have time to paint again. This may very well be your ONLY chance to own a painting my me! If I ever do get syndicated, I will be making art all day long, but syndication is a hard nut to crack. Events like this, alongside of cartoonists who are represented by a major syndicate, are key to me ever picked up by Go Comics or King Features. As you all know, Charmy’s Army is not represented by a major syndicate. I distribute Charmy’s Army all by myself to newspapers across the country. I call my syndicate Okra Comics, hence the Okra Logo on my comic book.
