Did you know that I am participating in the upcoming Monterey County Artist's Open Studio Tour? This 27th annual event includes many of the best artists on & surrounding the Peninsula!
Location is at my studio, part of ArtWorks PG located on the 2nd floor of the American Tin Cannery Building in Pacific Grove just across the street from the Aquarium & across from the water! ArtWorks is also home to 18 other working artists of the Peninsula.
I will have a surprise gift for the first 20 visitors! It's going to stay a secret until the day of the tour, so make sure you come by for a chance at an exclusive piece!
In addition, I will have a free-to-enter raffle for an original art piece!
"Flint, Michigan" is a piece about the titular city's lead poisoning crisis. 100% of proceeds of sales of prints of this piece (and the sale of the original) will be donated to relief efforts in Flint.
Original piece done with tombow markers on Bee paper.
Digital prints available on Etsy at http://ow.ly/SKRQ30axlht
"Singer Sewing Machine" is a charcoal drawing I did originally in 2013 but have revisited for digital prints now. There is something very special and universal about the sturdy and reliable vintage Singer. An ex of mine would use one often for his crafts, and I found the repetitive noise to be very soothing.
I have a run of digital prints of these available at my Etsy, available here http://ow.ly/KgOz30axmx9
"Canary Call" is an illustration that I made about climate change and the pressing need to take action, playing off of the 'canary in a coal mine' trope.
I used Tombow markers & pentel pocket brush pen on Bee paper.
I have just added prints of these to my Etsy! See them at http://ow.ly/kMvR30axkHk
Nothing compares to a wild California poppy. I absolutely love their vibrant, delicate breath of sunshine. What's your favorite wild flower?
