Hi again! Some fun news going on here. Our son, Alex, who has been participting in the Sharon Art Club will have one of his drawings on display in the Spring Arts Eggstravaganza being held at the Cravings Cafe in downtown Sharon. He worked really hard on his piece, featuring Link from the Legend of Zelda game series, to get it done on time. And it turned out great! He is also going to help setup for the show. He loves lending a hand and getting involved in projects like this. Our other little budding artist, Andy, will also have a painting in the show! So come on down and check out all the great works made by all the talented artists from Sharon! Hope to see you there!

Back from the Ether

Hello all! It's been a long time since we posted here but it's also been a busy year. We've still been creating here and there but now we have a new medium to work in. Recently we purchased a Microsoft Surface Pro and so far it is awesome! I've started sketching comic drawings on it and plan on working on some motion comics as well. As soon as we get some new work finished I will upload it. Happy creating!

New Larger Inks & Updates!

Posted by [email protected] on February 27, 2016 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (1)

Hi there! We're back again with some additions and updates to the website. We recently took a trip up to Edinboro, PA to visit Gallery 104, where Theresa has a large selection of her Alcohol Inks on loan and for sale. We swapped out some of her larger Alcohol Inks for several of her newer ones. For more information on what she has for sale there check out her "ART ON LOAN" gallery or go to facebook.com/gallery104 to contact them directly. Here's just one of the newer pieces she has on loan there:


And speaking of her larger inks, Theresa's been working on going even bigger with her Alcohol inks. She recently started working on Alcohol Ink pieces that top out at 20" x 26"! And that may be only the start to how big they can get. We've added some of these new pieces to the "ART FOR SALE" gallery. Here's an example of one of them:


We have also heard that the Waterfire festival will be coming back to Sharon this year! As of right now, we have tentatively begun preparing to be a part of two of the three events scheduled for 2016. Stay tuned here or to Facebook.com/SokolStudios for more information. And for more information about Waterfire Sharon please visit their home page at WaterfireSharonPA.org

And I have added some inked pages of the Minecraft Comic I am working on into a new gallery called Comic Art. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more additions.

It's been a while since we shared with everyone but we were very busy preparing for the Waterfire, Sharon event where Theresa showcased her alcohol inks. Waterfire was September 26 and was a great turnout. Many thanks go out to all the people who stopped by to admire and purchase Theresa's art. We had a wonderful experience with the whole thing.

Also, Theresa has several pieces in the upcoming Artists Raise the Roof show starting Friday, October 9 at The Woman's Club of Erie in Erie, PA. We'll be there Friday at the opening reception and the show runs the rest of the weekend. Hope to see you there too! For more info check out www.eriewomansclub.com and the flyer posted below.

And finally we'll be adding and updating the website within the next few weeks so stay tuned!
