Still Alive

Sorry for the lack of updates over the past weeks - apparently it's November now? All of my time since the end of October has been dedicated to moving into a new house, which is really exciting but also really exhausting and really time consuming. I just keep finding more stuff that I haven't moved yet or things that need to be cleaned. There is light at the end of the tunnel though, and a bunch of end-of-year art projects.

"Where did all my stuff go?"

UP NEXT



Here is a sneak peek of a new little piece for Ltd. Gallery's FROM THE TOY BOX show, opening on Thursday in Seattle.


HOLIDAY STUFF ALREADY?

On Wednesday, December 3, I will be once again be selling my art stuffs at the Lincoln Craftacular event. I will have brand new prints, cards, sticker packs, and jewelry (sneak previews coming soon) and will be sharing the table with my sister and her awesome hand-made jewelry. On December 4, I will be listing the remaining new stuff in my etsy shop.

I will also have some new little art, ornaments, and other giftables for sale at Gallery 9's Holiday Show, which runs December 3-28 with an opening reception on Friday, December 5.

Extra Life 2014

On October 25 I will once again be participating in the Extra Life gaming marathon to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, which treat thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. The money that I raise will go to Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital where my cousin is receiving treatment for Leukemia.

But what IS Extra Life, you may ask. Well, I shall tell you. Extra Life is a 24-hour world-wide gaming marathon which has raised millions of dollars to help sick kids and their families. It works like a regular running-type charity marathon, except that instead of sponsoring me to run around, you are sponsoring me to sit at home and play video and board games for many, many hours. You can read more about EXTRA LIFE here. Throughout the day I will be posting pictures and videos on twitter and probably live-streaming as well.

PLUS, as an extra-special bonus, if you make a donation of $25 or more, I will send you an envelope filled with random art goodies like postcards, greeting cards, a mini-sketch, a print or a t-shirt (it all depends on how many donations I get). 
Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
I need your help to reach my goal.  Please make a safe, easy donation online today.  Click the "Support Me" button on this page to get started.  Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!

Lost Woods - October 2014


Starting Saturday, October 4, I will have a collection of new and old work on display at The Outlook Project (800 P Street, Suite 300, Lincoln NE). The show runs for three months and a percentage of the sales will go to support The Angel's Theatre Company here in Lincoln.

The show is part of The Outlook Project.

OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, October 4
4:00-7:00 p.m.

If you are in the area, please stop by the opening reception on October 4. There will be snacks and refreshments and members of the Angels Company will be there to tell you more about their organization and upcoming productions. I will also be there, awkwardly trying to talk to people. PLUS, there will be a sale table with prints and cards (including the new Nancy Drew giclee). None of the new pieces are done yet (as per usual), but I will post previews once I get further along.

THE ANGELS THEATRE COMPANY

Since 1992, The Angels Theatre Company has been creating engaging theatre to foster community partnerships, social awareness and change. Their work incorporates the timeless values of creativity, integrity, independent thinking, excellence, and diversity.

THE OUTLOOK PROJECT

The Outlook Project provides new and established artists with space to exhibit their art and the opportunity to give something back to the community in which they live and work. Artists donate a percentage of their sales to a non-profit organization of their choosing, making Outlook Project exhibitions a collaborative, community event.

The Outlook Project’s exhibition space is housed in Fuse Coworking, a space where writers, technologists and other self-sustaining creatives can work in a professional, stimulating environment that provides standard workplace amenities like conference rooms, printers and, of course, coffee.
