Father's Day (Sunday, June 20th) is right around the corner!
Copyright © 2021 by D.E.Uhlig. All rights reserved.
My father used to call me 'Davado' (pronounced 'day-VAH-doh') — and I think of him every time I see or hear it.

So when I began searching for a moniker I could use to help me differentiate my illustration work (D.E. Uhlig) from my fine art paintings (Davado) — it seemed like the perfect choice.

As I mentioned in a previous newsletter, my paintings were the primary focus of my open studio display last Friday…

…so it was a great excuse for me to put my new brand to work.

I secured the domain a number of years ago, and hope to begin developing a website in the not too distant future.

Anyway, the show was a great success and a wonderful experience!

Considering we're all just now coming up for air following an extended, worldwide pandemic, there was a surprisingly steady stream of visitors, many of whom I'd never met before.

But a lot of friends and family also made it out to see me, which was especially heartwarming!

The good news is that open studios happen (nearly) every month, so there will be plenty of opportunities for you to head down to the Crossroads and see what I've been working on. (I say 'nearly' because we're not yet sure whether enough of us will be in town to host an open studio over the July 4th weekend. Stay tuned to future emails, and Instagram, for further updates.)

And thank you again—EVERYONE—for taking time from your busy schedules to stop by and see the show! Happy Father's Day!

— Jeremy Sturdivant was paid in Bitcoin when he delivered two pizzas in 2010. Today, those Bitcoins would be worth over $200 million dollars. Alas, Jeremy squandered his windfall. Speaking of blowing money, Laszlo Hanyecz (the guy who bought the pizza from Sturdivant) spent a total of $3.8 billion on pizzas in the summer of 2010 using the novel crypto. (Now that's a lot of dough!)

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. (I also go by Dave or David, and often sign my work 'Davado' — a nickname my dad gave me when I was young.) I’m an artist, author, husband and father, and for as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
