|VOL 9 ISSUE 2||February 2006|
Each year, the Alwun House art gallery holds a month long exhibition that they call their Exotic Art Show. I have enjoyed having this event as a forum for my bodypainting artwork and I have done demonstrations on opening nights for the past 6 years. This year I was at it again in the basement of the historic building painting volunteers from the audience. To see some of the pictures from this event and the rest of the story, check out the 2006 Exotic Art Show web page on my site at http://www.futureclassx.com/bodypaint/alwunhouse/22/exotic2006.htm .
If your into rock music and enjoy on-line magazines, then www.dabelly.com is a website that you must check out. The site is continually updated with new articles that cover local and national bands and much of the lifestyles that surround them. Publisher/writer Dave Schwartz contacted me after attending the recent Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll show at the Paper Heart Art Gallery. His website genre is often related to permanent tattoos and body piercing, but to his recollection they hadn't done any articles on bodypainting. I was interviewed over the phone about a week later and the completed article was put on-line. He also included some other bodypainters from here in Phoenix that were doing demonstrations at the new gallery Soul Invictus. To read the article, go to http://www.futureclassx.com/bodypaint/michellemonroe/drfeelgood/dabelly/dabelly.htm .

- On May 5th-7th, I will again be taking part in the LepreCon sci-fi convention here in Phoenix. The tentative plan so far is a joint venture with the Heinlein Society and a blood drive. For a sneak peak of the bodypainting plans, check out "I Will Fear No Evil" by Robert A. Heinlein.
- On June 13th I will be the artist guest of honor and will be showing some of my bodypainting images, lifecasts, and doing a live demonstration at the Herberger Theater as part of their Second Act series. More details coming soon.
