This is my piece from the show:
You can now join me live in my studio several days a week on Twitch TV. Here I will be painting, drawing, and sculpting while chatting with viewers. I wanted to find a good motivation to get and stay in the studio, and the Twitch art community is very accommodating.
I am looking forward to improving my live streams, and getting more comfortable talking about my conceptual work.
Once again, I worked with the wonderful people at the Ozark Foothills Film Fest to create the branding for this year’s fest. In the past I try to work in the theme of the Ozarks and Arkansas, at least in some way, but this year I went a different route. I chose something more eye catching and direct.
Tshirt Design ↑
Again this year I got to create the look for the annual Ozark Foothills FilmFest. I really like the way this years turned out and especially the tshirts. Looking forward to another great day of movies tomorrow. Bob and Judy are the very best.
I felt honored to be invited by the Arkansas State University AIGA to be a speaker for their student show – Revival!
The show was impressive and it was fun to see the ASU campus again.

My work for the indie film, 45RPM, was featured on the cover of Eye on Independence Magazine for Independence Co. Arkansas. There is also an article and interview with director, Juli Jackson, with more artwork inside. I have lots and lots more artwork to add from the 45RPM project, and will as soon as I can. Hope to see you out for the premiere in a couple of weeks!
My painting’s appearance in the Brooks Museum of Art is getting a lot of attention. I couldn’t be more proud.
Our local magazine, the Paragould Premiere wrote a story about me in their August issue.
The Brooks Museum asked me to write an article about what it is like to have a painting on display in their galleries. It was quite an honor. I’ve grown up going to the Brooks. You can read it here: Mandy Maxwell Realizes Her Dream in Brooks Exhibition.
