Illustrator, Artist, Do-Gooder
IMMERSED IN ILLUSTRATION
Mondays, Jan 18-March 22
Welcome to an insightful look into the world of illustration! This online class offers a keen overview into many aspects of illustration: historical examples from around the world, contemporary types of illustration, and demos in the classic (and sometimes unconventional!) tools in an illustrator's toolkit. Open to all levels of skill, this class is geared more towards drawing beginners and illustrators who are just starting out.
SWEAR BY IT SALE
For two weeks in February, you can have one of my one-of-a-kind, fun (and saucy) Cursive Pins for 21% off!
Making use of the double entendre of "curse", these curse words in cursive writing are made with cotton embroidery thread and patterned cotton fabric on the front, with a silver bar-pin clasp and canvas backing on the backside. A circular board is sandwiched inside, to help with rigidity and to stand up to the weather. Measures 2'' by 2'' in width and height, and 0.5'' in depth.
THANK YOU THURSDAYS
The last Thursday of every month
The new decade is hitting hard for brick & mortar shops. We forget sometimes that when you buy local, you're supporting the artist but you're also supporting the shop. For 2021 on the last Thursday of every month, anyone that shares a snapshot of their purchase of my work from one of my stockist locations will get thank-you mail from me-including a little gift!
ANIMALS FOR APRIL FUNDRAISER
For the month of April, $10 from every Custom Pet Portrait order placed will go to help furry friends at a designated animal shelter or wildlife rescue (this year it's the Meow Foundation). All Pet Postcards sold in this month too will go to fundraising.
VIRTURAL SPRING SALE
During the online Spring Market of the Nova Scotia Makers Market, I will be fundraising for the Adsum Women & Children's organization in Halifax, who saw increased need and use of their services at the start of the pandemic (and continuing). For every Music Bird print sold through NS Makers Market website, 90% of earnings will go to Adsum between May 1-8th.
PRINT & PLANT FUNDRAISER
Selected from my Music Bird painting series, these 5''x 7'' inkjet prints are on Forest Sustainability Certified (FSC) textured linen paper, and one-third of each print sold goes to Tree Canada, which has many reforestation programs across the country. The purchase of one print equals one tree being planted.
To date, 116 trees have been planted from this initative.
Help lighten the load and score some savings with a huge sale on lots of items from my Shop! Between 30-50% off Pins, Postcards, Prints, as well as special items never posted before like mystery Goodie Bags, Pup Stickers, and Thank You cards!
Check out everything available in my Shop.
GIVE A FUCK FUNDRAISER
When you want to show you give a fuck for good. For two weeks in September, any direct purchase of this fundraiser will have 70% sent to a listed charity of your choice.
In 2020, this fundraiser made $400 split between Out of the Cold, Calgary Drop-In shelter, WIRES Wildlife Animal Rescue, Adsum Women & Children's shelter, Tree Canada, and RAICES Texas.
FLY WITH ME FUNDRAISER
For the month of October, I'm offering two branches of fundraising to support Fly With Me Animal Rescue, who rescue dogs from across the world and help them find their forever homes. For whatever you'd like to help with, I'm offering Mystery Postcard Packs or Custom Pet Portraits, both of which will have a portion going towards Fly With Me.
So far, $345 has been raised for Fly With Me in 2020 alone.
