Chicago Artists Unite!: Winter Group Art Jam at AIC!


Chicago Artists Unite!: Winter Group Art Jam at the Art Institute of Chicago!

So, I kind of put this thing together at the last minute and did not expect it to take off so fast.

I have been meaning to do this for sometime though, but never could find the necessary time to put one together.

This current event was not really exposed or promoted to the public until now, but needless to say, I have decided to make this an annual event in hopes of bringing together the many talented and diverse artists, Chicago has to offer.

This is just my first step of many to come, that I believe will help strengthen our community as a whole, as well as help the rest of the world view us as a city of strong, progressive and talented artists that live here.

For further information in regards to this event, please click on the following link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1536630246364475/

City Of Chicago Project


I've been so busy as of late that I've been forgetting to post things..

A newspaper article was recently written up on a completed
project that was created for the city of Chicago that I was able to be
a part of. I was mentioned towards the end of this interview.

The article was written before the real physical duties of the
production was started so some aspects had changed after.

You can read it as a whole by following the link below:

Happy HALLOWEEN Everyone!


Happy HALLOWEEN Everyone!

I hope the October month long of Halloween was as good, if not better for you, then mine.

It's been a great honor to be able to offer yet another volume of my Little BOOK of MONSTERS to you and the artists that help make them possible. Thank you all once again, without all the support of the very talented artists as well as the people, specialty bookstores and galleries around the world that support and handle the sales of these books, this would not be possible. So again, I thank everyone with all my hart for the support that helps me put together this very unique book and without further a do, it gives me great pleasure in offering Volume 3 of Rodney Dollah's Little BOOK of MONSTERS to you and the world.

My Latest Workshop


Please join me in a first of a series of original Anysquared workshops that
I have recently put together with the help of Gretchen Hasse that will
address and at times may even attack that day old question an
artist may have coming up in the world as a professional.

This different kind of interactive workshop will address creating,
making a living and ones morals while doing so.

So drop those books and come on down for real world situations and
interactivity among the working class artist.
