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.
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!
SWEAR BY IT SALE Feb 1-15
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.
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.
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.
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.
