What I'm down with

I am trying to set up a few things in the West Branch area that I'm hoping will bring together the community a little bit-

CosPlay (short for "costume play",[1] is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Characters are often drawn from popular fiction in Japan, but recent trends have included American cartoons and science fiction such as Disney.[citation needed] Favorite sources include cmanga, anime, tokusatsu,[clarification needed] comic books, graphic novels, video games, hentai and fantasy movies. Any entity from the real or virtual world that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see genders switched, with women playing male roles and vice versa. There is also a subset of cosplay culture centered around sex appeal, with cosplayers specifically choosing characters that are known for their attractiveness and/or revealing (even explicit) costumes.
Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centred around role play. A broader use of the term cosplay applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.)
in West Branch, maybe during one of the Fabulous Fridays events downtown.

Enchante Gallery Presents: Figure Drawing/Painting Workshop w/ Nuttall Art - I will be conducting a workshop on how to draw or paint the human figure with a live model. It takes place May 5th at Enchante` Gallery and the cost is $20 (to pay the male and female models and for use of the gallery)

NUTTALL ART STUDIO'S 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! - Saturday, April 21,from 5:00pm until 7:00pm at the studio. Free snacks, giveaways, and $1 raffle!

I'll also be doing events like the West Branch Art & Wine Walk, Blast the Blues at Dean Arbour, Fabulous Friday's Art in the Street, and maybe another Art de Combat.
