Now streaming on Twitch

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.

2016 Ozark Foothills Film Fest Branding

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.

Eye on Independence Cover Feature

Eye on Independence Cover

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!

Featured! Brooks Painting Getting Lots of Press

My painting’s appearance in the Brooks Museum of Art is getting a lot of attention. I couldn’t be more proud.

Mandy Maxwell on the Brooks Museum Blog

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.

The Ozark Foothills FilmFest

Ozark Foothills FilmFest Branding

I was thrilled to be a part of this year’s Ozark Foothills FilmFest. It all started with the poster and from there grew the entire look of this years fest. I am so glad Bob and Judy Pest, the entire FilmFest staff, let me have such a big part of the branding. I think it turned out very interesting and intriguing. Lots of good words were said about during the Fest so I was very honored. I know Ben and I will definitely be attending this event for years to come.

45 RPM Teaser Trailer Premiere

The first trailer for the movie 45RPM made its debut at the FilmFest this weekend. I did the branding for 45RPM as well as all of the art for the main character, who is an artists. Altogether, I did 17 paintings, dozens of drawings and a sketchbook. It was a fun challenge to put myself in another artist shoes and to take chances I wouldn’t normally take. I think Juli did an incredible job on this film and it really shows in this small glimpse. Without further adieu… you must see this trailer:
