May 1: Loya art in fundraiser

Today from 7-9 p.m. the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery at Smith Center in Washington, D.C., will hold its annual Alchemical Vessel benefit fundraiser to help folks who have cancer. Among the various works of art will be the handwork of local artist/cartoonist Steve Loya (see image below).

In other Loya news, Steve’s tortoise illustration titled "Peaceful Survivor" piece won the World Animal Protection art contest for the 18 and over category, selected by actress Evanna Lynch (who, unfortunately botched identifying the animal, calling it a sea turtle.)

Splotch Monsters invade The Griffin Art Center, Frederick, Maryland!

That's right. A little shameless plug - I've got a big art exhibit featuring Splotch Monster art, both big and small, old and brand spanking new, hanging at the beautiful front gallery of The Griffin Art center in historic, downtown Frederick, Maryland. The art reception will be a week from today, on Saturday, April 11, from 5-8pm, and it's going to be awesome. Below is a sneak peek at a fraction of what will be on display at the exhibit. There's also plenty more to see and do in the area. So, mark your calendars and hope to see you there next Saturday night!  -Steve

Loya in 'The People vs. George Lucas"

Local cartoonist/artist Steve Loya’s childhood "Star Wars" drawings appeared in the 2010 documentary "The People vs. George Lucas." Steve talks about it on Facebook and links back to some postings on his blog.

"I'm so glad my mom and grandmother cherished and held on to my art from my childhood,” Loya writes.
