The 2009 "Recession Proof" Art Festival

Happy February!
I'm excited that February is here. I have to write my goals out for this month, but as usual they will most likely have something to do with fitness and photography. I have a show coming up!
I'm excited about. My friend and director Gary Schultz invited me to particiapate in the 2009 Recession Proof Art Festival. Its a art festival with different emerging artists coming together to help raise funds for Gary's new film "Who Is Jude?"

"Who is Jude?" Film Synopsis (taken from the website):

, a lonely anti-social tech geek, and his only friend, his pet turtle BRONSON, are faced with a catastrophic situation beyond the walls of their tiny garden apartment. With no electricity and no form of communication to the outside world, JUDE is warned about a possible terrorist-attack taking place outside his home by the woman that lives above him, IRIS with whom he is infatuated. Are these occurrences the plot of some sick joke? Or is Jude's world really coming to an end?

So anyway I am in the festival and if you are around on Saturday you should totally stop by and say hi! I will be showing about 5-6 pieces of my work.
I'm excited about it.
Here are details about the event:
