Joey the Bat


I accepted a commission painting to do a painting of
'Joey the Bat'.

This isn't Joey pictured here...but you get the idea.

There is such an interesting story behind 'Joey' that I couldn't
pass up the commission. It just sounded like fun.

Lots of photos and various paintings and other works of art
have been done,
featuring Joey.

He has traveled around the world...and has photos taken in all the
places he has 'visited'.
Sometime in October...many of the photos and art
will be displayed in a gallery in NYC
that will tell the story of 'Joey the Bat' and his travels.

Joey even has his own
Facebook page.
