Over the course of the last few months I've been working hard at finishing a new series of sculptures based on pop culture icons from the 1980's that reference sculpture from the Hellenistic period of Greek Sculpture. Included is a photo album of a good selection of work-in-progress photos previously posted on my Instagram account. Enjoy!
For a long time, I've wanted to get t-shirts printed. Finally, I have some available. I commissioned artist Sage Perrott to draw me a design that would work for being printed on a T-shirt. What you see is the result of her efforts. I love the deign because it is simple yet has a complexity to it upon closer examination. Inside the T-rex design are astronauts, dinosaurs and plenty of other creatures getting into their own shenanigans. This is a design that rewards multiple viewings. Check out www.brettkernart.bigcartel.com to purchase one today!
In the interest of letting everyone know when my dinosaurs and other items will be up for sale, I started a mailing list to better inform everybody. Feel free to sign up below to get the latest updates!
I've been getting so many requests for dinosaurs that I decided to take a few made-to-order requests on my Etsy Shop . However, there is a limited number of these requests so don't hesitate! Also, I am working hard on refilling my inventory so please be patient with me. Thank you very much!
2013 was an exciting year for my career and my life. There were ups and downs. Thankfully , there were mostly ups this time but I'll be hard at work in 2014 trying to maintain and expand the success of the past year. Here, I gathered some of my favorite photos and some of the most important photos from 2013 as an end-of-2013 tribute. Enjoy the stroll down memory lane and thank you to everyone who supported me in 2013. I LITERALLY could not have done it without your support.
This summer, I was promoted to full-time as an Assistant Professor of Art at Davis & Elkins College. In addition to this, the Ceramics Studio is being remodeled and will be filled with new equipment. Certainly, exciting things await.
It's the sale 65 million years in the making! If you like my work, there's a good chance you also enjoyed watching Jurassic Park. Well, incase you were unaware, the movie is being re-released in 3-D and it opens April 5th 2013. In honor of this release, I am having a sale in my etsy shop. The sale will extend until April 30th 2013. On that day, the drawing will be held for the red T-Rex. The shipping expenses for the T-rex will be covered by myself, as long as the winner is in the continental U.S.
New items including whoopee cushions, fingers, buffalo and more and more dinosaurs will be added to the shop in the coming weeks. So, check back often. Feel free to message me on my facebook page or e-mail me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
This Tuesday, after a month of being on display, my solo show at Concord University is ending. I will be giving a lecture, which starts at 5:30 pm, this Monday night at the college. The lecture will be followed by the closing reception where you will have a chance to meet me, ask me questions and see the work. You will not be required to meet me or ask me questions but, seeing the work is encouraged. I can't imagine any reason why this wouldn't be fun so I hope to see you there.
On tuesday morning from 9am - noon, I will be giving a workshop at Concord University in the studios. For anyone curious about the processes involved in making my art, this would be a great opportunity.
