I’m thrilled to say that I’ve added yet another issue to my ongoing series of mini zines! and this one, is titled “pools”…
this third issue is about the summer after high school, when my best friend and I used to sneak into swimming pools. this particular memory is very personal, and something I’ve always wanted to incorporate into some sort of creative project. no joke, I’ve dabbled with illustrating and drawing this idea for years. I’m so happy to have captured it in a zine – a format I’ve become quite in love with over the past few months…
much like my other mini zines, you can take a video tour of this one over on my youtube channel! “pools”, along with a restock of “two weeks in may” and “things I’ve buried“, is available now in my etsy shop!
***UPDATE: all mini zines are now SOLD OUT! thank-you so so much to those who grabbed one! if you missed out, I’ll be doing a restock in September…so stay tuned 🙂 ***
*this journal spread was completed in one of my moleskine ‘art plus’ sketchbooks, and the text is lyrics from fiona apple’s ‘sleep to dream’
for the first time ever, I am selling some original journal spreads and ‘in-progress’ spreads from a few of my altered book journals!
as you may have seen on instagram, a few weeks ago while cleaning my studio I found a stash of altered books that weren’t fully finished, or that were falling apart. rather than hoarding this artwork for myself, I’ve decided to pass it on and list it in my etsy shop.
you can hop on over here to check out everything I’ve listed! there are 8 completed spreads (one of which is still in a book), and 4 ‘in-progress’ spreads…
***UPDATE: everything is now SOLD OUT! thank-you so so so much for those of you with quick fingers and who may have been watching my Etsy shop. all listings were gone within 10 minutes from the time I posted…THANK-YOU!! <3***
looking back in my blog archives – I realized that I don’t put up blog posts like this very frequently. if my research serves me correct, my last ‘in progress’ post was in 2015! needless to say, I’ll work on sharing photos like this more often…
this is a small sampling of art journal spreads that are deemed ‘in progress’. each of these spreads are at various percentages of completion, but in my mind they are not done. from here, they will either be finished, forgotten and returned to later on, or abandoned in their entirety. only time will tell…
good morning, and happy friday! it’s finally here…my latest online class SPIRITS is now live and available for purchase! hop on over to my Etsy shop to snag a seat in class. a few other quick things to note:
+ SPIRITS is available at a discounted rate for this week only! starting may 6th, the class will return to its regular price.
+ Class bundles that contain SPIRITS will also reflect that early bird rate, again – for this week only! so take advantage of that early bird price for extra savings when you purchase bundles.
+ Be one of the first 20 students to enroll in SPIRITS and you’ll snag one of these! – UPDATE: THIS IS NOW SOLD OUT
alright, so there you have it. whew, I can’t believe it’s actually launch day and I’m putting this class out into the world. as I’ve mentioned before – Spirits has been a real labor of love (and my BIGGEST CLASS YET) – so I’m beyond happy right now to put it out there for all of you…
I’ll see you in class…xo
***UPDATE: wow you guys! the ‘spirit pack’ giveaway was gone in under 3 minutes! thank-you so much to those who set alarms, were up early (or in a weird time zone), and have purchased the class…your support means so much!! xo***
I just wanted to pop by here to remind you that my new online class SPIRITS arrives tomorrow morning in my Etsy shop at 8:00am pst! as I mentioned in the announcement post, I’ve got that ‘spirit pack’ giveaway for the first 20 students who enroll in the class…
The first 20 students to enroll in the Spirits class will receive a free ‘Spirit pack’ via snail mail. This includes a hand painted trading card from the artist (featuring a ‘spirit’), a die-cut sticker, fun packing tape bits designed by Roxanne, and a mini art print! (while supplies last, limited to the first 20 students only)
with the launch of SPIRITS, there will also be more online class bundle options available. these new bundle combos will also reflect that lower early bird rate for Spirits! basically, buy a bundle this week during the launch of Spirits to save more moolah and snag another one of my classes (like Creatures or Lyrical, or both!).
I’m so absolutely thrilled about this new class, and cannot wait to share it with you all. hopefully I’ll be ‘seeing you’ in class tomorrow!
