adventure-v3-2-2Opening tomorrow Saturday, April 12 at Clutter Magazine in Beacon, NY is a brand new show featuring Circus Posterus’ own Amanda Louise Spayd along with Kelly Denato, Melita “Miss Monster” Curphy and Lana Crooks.

Adventure Awaits
“Scout ahead and forage through the dark forests on a woodland adventure! Embark on a quest through the wilds, guided by Amanda Louise Spayd, Kelly Denato, Lana Crooks, and Miss Monster (Melita Curphy). Will you uncover mysterious creatures worthy of adding to your cabinet of curiosities or will you be taken deeper into the thickets by something else entirely? The woods do not yield its treasures easily, you must choose your own adventurous path carefully… The rewards are great and the dangers are even greater. Good luck! Choose well.”

Come on out and support Amanda and all the talented ladies!

A look back at the Traveling Circus at Rotofugi

traveling circusWell, all the artists are settled back at their homes, the fans in attendance are all still rejoicing, and we want all of you to share in the wonderment that was the Traveling Circus at Rotofugi.

Many braved the cold and cancelled flights to attend the show in Chicago, and we are truly grateful. If you couldn’t attend the show (like me) we have a deluge of images from the opening thanks to Jason Spanier. Now everyone can share in the festivities, and don’t forget that there is still plenty of amazing work still available right here on Rotofugi’s site.
