July 06, 2020 WOW, It's been waaaay too long since my last post. However, with all that's going on, I do not have much Baker Joe news to report. The plan was to do some festivals this summer but with most of them being canceled there wont be much of that going on. On the brightside, I have been doing quite a bit online at my Etsy storefront. Always available for custom work as well. WEAR A F*^\@"N MASK!!
April 21, 2020 Ok team! I finally got my entire inventory of available originals up on my Etsy storefront. With that, all of the photos of available pieces on this website are now linked to their Etsy pages. So if you like any of the works on the site, simply double click the image to be redirected to the Etsy page for that artwork. I will do my best to keep both bakerjoeart.etsy.com and this main site up to date with any sales. That being said quick shout out to my new friends out in Las Vegas and Phoenix, AZ for picking up all 3 works of my Batman villians canvas works. Thanks for your support especially during the crazy times we are living in now. STAY SAFE AND STAY POSITIVE!
April 5, 2020 Hey BJA friends! hope you are all healthy and staying safe at home. Just wanted to pop on here and give a quick update for those who may not be following me on Instagram. Thanks to this pandemic, I have been able to get a lot of new projects planned, started and in some cases finished. I also filmed a time-lapse video of me making a Spider-man vinyl record wall clock, which is up now @bakerjoeart on Instagram. I also want to thank those folks who picked up some art from my etsy.com page this month. I appreciate all the support even through the difficult times that we are all face together currently. Soon this will all be over and we can get back to art shows, concerts, and parties with our loved ones! Stay safe and stay positive!
January 11, 2020: WOW! Its been way too long since I wrote a post here! Its a new year which means new goals for BJA. I have been having a ton of non-art related stuff occupying a lot of my time, which I plan to change. With that being said I will be working on improving this site, adding more available works to my Etsy, and setting up more art shows. Please if you are not already following me on Insta or FB, do so! This is the best way to keep updated on all the latest baker joe art happenings.

To say thanks, we have made everything 20% off all month long! in store only at the recently renamed, Artum Pop up Gallery. I really appreciated the opportunity to showcase at the pop up galley, so thanks again to all those who were involved. And thanks to the fellow artist and Evanston art collectors who have influenced and inspired me along the way.<
> I will be packing up my studio for a fancy new space early 2019... no new and custom work will be available until further notice. ALL ETSY.com orders will still be filled and shipped on time. And all other existing works are available at the Pop Up Gallery Evanston.<
