Family, bloggers, friends, fans, and supporters,

Another Seizure:
On Friday the 13th (I know,.. right) I had a seizure that lasted for 2 hours, caused by this brain tumor, as many of you are now aware of.  It landed me in the ER for quite some time and most of it I do not remember.  Which is probably best.

One funny thing I do remember though; as the seizure started I was alert and when the EMT / Ambulance staff arrived they said to me “Sir, can you please hold still so I can get an IV in?”   This actually made me laugh out loud and still does 🙂

So, up until today, and still a tad bit so, I am dealing with partial paralysis on my right side which is temporary I am told and called Todd’s Paralysis.  I have been doing strength training, working on writing and typing, etc… to build up my tolerance and abilities to get back to painting.  This blog post, to this point, has taken me over an hour as I get dizzy staring at the screen.

More Artwork:
As my strength increases and as I persevere and push through this partial paralysis I will continue to make new paintings and take on commissioned paintings once again.  This is what I love to do and what keeps me going as I am blessed to say I am a full time artist!

I also wanted to tell you all about 4 old Black & White ORIGINAL paintings I have that were very sentimental to me and I was never going to get rid of them but I must make them available to assist with our fight and fundraising for medical and living expenses.   I have included them in my Etsy shop under the Section “Original Artwork.”  They are 50% off list price with coupon code ART50 if used at checkout (take price you see and cut in half) so the saving are substantial and a great chance to own something of mine that is truly rare!!  Here is each piece.  You can click on each and read a little about it in the description.  I know these are not the vibrant colorful pieces you are used to seeing but these are near and dear to me and the ONLY originals I have left that are mine.  Many people have told me in the past to not open up about my paintings, to leave interpretation to the viewer but these are different.  These I need to share with you so you can see why they mean so much to me so you understand how important it is that they go to a good home, in order to aid us in our financial fight.

As always, EVERYTHING in my Etsy Shop is now 50% off with code ART50 to aid our fight.  Prints, originals, you name it!

New View on Life:
I have always been an optimistic guy!  Lately things have really shuffled around for me.  I see things differently, more clearly.  I see people bicker or argue about things that don’t REALLY matter.  This frustrates me more than it used to.  My wife and I are really stressed, stretched, and tested with the situation(s) we are in but we manage to communicate in a loving manner, regardless of the medication reactions (or overreactions) I may have.  We can do it.  When I see other people argue over something as simple as the type of bread to buy, or the fact that a dish was put away in the wrong spot…. it really stands out.  Is this what is important to some?  Is this worth disappointment?

Other than sharing, reblogging, tweeting, facebooking, or whatever you can do with my story…… please remember this…  You are here today!  Smile and enjoy this day as if it is your last!  Please never take anything for granted!

Your artist and friend!

So, I was doing the artwork for X-ACTO this year in Austin, TX for SXSW.  Here are some great shots from the event.

I signed over 500 limited edition posters I designed and created more than 100 custom small canvases as well.  There were lines around the block with folks and media waiting to get some of my artwork…

I have a limited number of available pieces in my store.  If you see something you like let me know..

Here is the link:  — https://www.etsy.com/shop/UrbanWallArt

I have partnered with X-ACTO ( http://xacto.com/ ) to do their artwork for this years SXSW (South by South West) Festival.  For those of you who don’t know what that is, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring in Austin, Texas.  It began in 1987, and has continued to grow in size every year. In 2011, the conference lasted for 10 days, with SXSW Interactive lasting for five, Music for six, and Film running concurrently for nine days.

X-ACTO reached out to me to create an artwork-centric environment using my art to showcase the abilities of their products, which I use regularly to create my stencils.  Other than the use of spray paint, X-ACTO is the unsung hero of my artwork!

I will be there with them on the 7th & 8th of March.  The event is located in what we are calling the “Precision Pavilion.”  It will be located on the corner of Neches & 5th Streets and will run from 10am – 4pm on each of those days.

I will be giving away free art along with signed limited edition event posters I helped design and create.  X-ACTO will be giving away tons of free merchandise.

If you are in the area I would love to meet you in person!!

Connect with X-ACTO on thier Facebook account to win free merchandise including the shirts I designed!

Please pass along to anyone you know in the area!  I look forward to meeting you all!
