It’s the end of another year, time for reflection and resolutions. It’s also time for our end of month post, where we look back at the news from December, and look forward to events coming up in January. Be sure to comment with any events we may have missed!
ADCT Guest Speaker, Kevin Stark – January 17th
We’re back to our regular speaker schedule with a multi-talented designer. Kevin Stark describes himself as “a cartoonist, portrait painter, sculptor, toy designer, musician, photographer, producer, and entrepreneur,” and is known for establishing the Toy & Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. He has designed a multitude of toy lines, including the Toxic Crusaders, The Mask, The Simpsons, The Pink Panther, and perhaps the most iconic retro toy, Stretch Armstrong. You won’t want to miss this presentation. 6:30 at Living Arts.

Processed: Silkscreen prints by Schmickle, Yang & Live4This – Opens Friday, January 4th at 6pm. Runs through January 24th at Living Arts.
