Travel with your ego

Express yourself anywhere you go.

I'm a big fan of the customized luggage website http://www.luggagepros.com/myflybag. About a year ago I thought it would be kinda cool to put my art on luggage, so a quick search led me to their site and a very user-friendly interface. They offer two hard case sizes for personalization. It's easy to upload an image, scale it to fit the on-screen template and even preview the bag in different views and scenarios before placing your order.

The bag arrived within a week (free shipping a big plus). I was thrilled that the art reproduced beautifully and impressed by the overall quality, design, construction and durability of the bag itself. I've traveled with the bag several times and it's held up very well. An occasional scuff on the outer plastic cover has come easily using a Magic Eraser.

And needless to say, it's REALLY easy to spot your bag on the carousel.  ;-)

Entering the blogosphere

So here we go.
Welcome to Alter Ego Pop Blog.

My first blog entry — it's about time, right? I'm thrilled at long last to unveil my new website and share ongoing news and updates about my art. After taking a break for nearly four years to perform with an Atlanta-based comedy ensemble company, 2016 signals my return to pop art — and with it an exciting book series that I'm so proud to be associated with (but more of that in a future post).

For now, I thought a fun way to get things started would be to take a look back: specifically my last gallery show at Chic Evolution in Art in December 2011.

An enormous undertaking that took several months to prepare, the show featured over 30 large-scale prints and 28 wood-framed “Pop Blocks.” Among the gallery crowd, you'll find EJ Aviance dressed as one of my Alter Egos, DJ Scott Anthony, a couple of Atlanta Real Housewives and the legendary Marilyn.
