|Huron County Winner!!!!|
Firstly... and I'm sure that I've probably mentioned this already; I'm excited to announce that in late October, I was the winner of the Huron County Art Show! The work these artists bring to these shows is fantastic! I was in great company... very much humbled by the experience.
Here's what else we Wonky Frogs have been up to!
October/ November 2015
We were invited to attend the Blyth Theatre's annual Gala-ween charity event and had so much fun hobnobbing with other local theatre supporters. We even dressed for the occasion with Cat was dressed as "Death on vacation" (see pic) and I taking a more minimal approach (see pic)... was awarded an honourable mention.

It was a wonderful time had by all and we even walked away with a few collectibles ourselves! The gala was also the scene for the unveiling of the new season's artwork....done by none other that our friend and colleague Greg Sherwood. Monies raised went to the theatre and we were proud to support such a worthwhile cause!

January brought some bitter winter and, sadly, some bitter reality. Winter usually brings the the crowds of workshop hordes....we count on it. This year, however although we put funding into advertising, the figures didn't catch up to what we had projected based on last years numbers. 3-2-1 PANIC!!
All was not lost, though.
|The group of Eight (Ate...yummy)|
It turns out, a group of local artists were going to have a group show at Queens. They saw the paintings that I had on display and invited me to take part. How exciting!! We then became "Phinias Fishburger and the Flaming Thunder Twonks!"
Just kidding....we became "The Group of Eight!" I believe Les said that "The Group of Seven" was already taken.
|Checking out the competition|
As February started winding down, Cat and I started the ball rolling on our new logo. Cat will be finalizing the typesetting and I'll be fleshing-out our mascot...the lemur leaf frog. We also thought it'd be a great idea to advertise some kind of contest to help celebrate this. And before you ask no...I will not be saying anything else about it because... I'm sketchy on the details at best. You'll just have to stay tuned to find out more!
