Artsy Fartsy

I've got some great news! I'm going to be in the 3rd annual Clapperclaw arts and music festival. The event will take place in Minneapolis, MN so if you are in the area in September that's when it's goin' down. Yay! I will update when the event gets closer.

You're lucky if you're in Lucky!

Hey blog friends,

I sold 9 of my prints to Soo Visual Art Center! How awesome is that?! Suzy, the Executive Director, met with me and was so cool and supportive of me becoming a freelance illustrator. I am hopeful that someday in the near future I can support myself solely on my prints. What a thought!

I also wanted to mention that you can see my work in the August issue of Lucky magazine. I was contacted by Judy of Sundaybrunchdress.com via email today to let me know that her website was featured in the magazine. I was lucky enought to be the featured artist the month during the time they took pictures of her site...so badda bing badda BOOM! I'm in Lucky. What a serendipitous name for a magazine that puts a fledgling artist's work in their pages! I feel so.....well, lucky.

P.S. The print they show is my favorite of favorite prints, The Queen Beekeeper. Unfortunately, you can't see it via their website. I bought two copies of the actual magazine so far. It's on page 44.

Click on the above picture for a closer look at the page. Sorry my artwork is so fuzzy.... Check out the real deal at any place that sells Lucky magazine.

O happy day!

Today is a very exciting day for me. I was contacted by the lovely Soo Visual Arts Center here in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I've been a long time follower of their store and site, so I was wonder- struck when their Director invited me to show her some of my work. Today is the day and I'm feeling a mixture of excitement and nerves.

Wish me luck!
I'll post later how the whole shebang went down....

peace out!

A Long Absence

Hey Blog Friends,

Sorry for the long absence. So many things have been happening to me lately. Most notably, I moved from one apartment in my building to another two floors down. Seems easy, right?! It should have been, but I had no idea how much stuff I've accumulated over the years!! It's insane!

Anyhoo, I also took a trip up north with my best friends. We just hung out and relaxed. Sooooo much fun. The hens in the picture were really friendly, surprisingly. Cute too.

Among work and the above activities my artwork has fallen to the wayside. However, I am going to work extra hard to finish this new piece I'm working on. Excelsior!
