Children’s book by post

I recently made a comment to my friend Andreas that we might collaborate on a children’s book. A few days later, notecards started arriving in my mailbox with a story on the top half and a blank for me to fill in on the bottom half. I am enjoying this challenge!

I have done a weird triptych for this year’s Small Feats fundraiser. Three 1970s style kiddies, all looking a bit demented. these are selling at the Niagara Artists Centre fundraiser this Saturday night.

Small Feats features over 150 pieces 12″x12″ artworks selling for $200 each. The event is a blast, an art sale like no other.  The proceeds are split between NAC and the artists. Art lovers stream through the doors and smartly-attired volunteers (myself included!) ring in the sales.

A complicated affair

Hawk and pigeon valentine

Sometimes love is complicated. Another bird-themed Valentine from Swizzle Studio.
