January 28, 2015

I know it seems like I’ve vanished from word press. I can assure you I’ll be posting more resources, news, info, reviews for art, illustration, concept art, 3D, animation, figure drawing, still life, art history, and more very soon. I will make an effort to post more often; at least twice a month. Stay tuned and continue to follow my blog.

Than You for following me

Michael Burton Pictures of North Riverside Theater Exhibit

March 3, 2012

I managed to get a few pictures of the art exhibit at North Riverside Mall Movie Theater. The staff did a really good job promoting the exhibit. I was featured on as well as a few local newspapers. The display area is very nice. Located upstairs from the malls food court on a patio. Part of the food court is actually what you see behind the images. The theater also set me up 2 nice banners on each end of the exhibit area; giving it a nice touch. Also, I apologize, as I couldn’t get the best pictures with my crappy cell phone. I will make sure I have a camera for the next events.
