Huge Art Project On The Horizon And A Super Fun Anna Carey Author Event ~

Well ~

It's been a crazy couple of days.

I've taken on a huge art project.  I can't give you much detail other than I have 4 months to create 21 pieces of art.

I am desperately in need of new art supplies to get me started on this journey, soooo...

I think a sale is in order.  Don't you?

This sale is in my Zibbet Shop instead of Etsy.

Mainly because Zibbet doesn't require a coupon code.

You can get 33.33% off all my original pieces and the prices are already marked down for you.  So easy to use Zibbet!

There are 15 original pieces, including my newest art.  Would you like to have a look?  If so, just click Right Here.

I am over the moon excited about this new project.

It will require a lot of research but I'm ready to go!

I had to offer up a new bio photo for the project ~

I'm also knee deep in composing cover letters for children's book art agents.

These are the kinds of things that make me nervous and crazy.  The business end of art is not my strong point!

Along with my arty stuff last week, I also had fun author stuff to attend as well.

I went with my daughter to the release party for Anna Carey's new book  called "Rise" ~ Anna is such a sweetheart.  Funny, witty and gorgeous!

The signing was held at an amazing indie bookstore in Hollywood called Book Soup.

As usual, the local Young Adult fiction authors came out in support for Anna.

My daughter (a book blogger and future published author) knows all these spectacular authors, I'm just the mom!  :-)

Ohhh...and, we discovered that one of my puppies has double canines! ~ 

So...all in all, I've been busy.

I absolutely have to buckle down and get started on this new project.

As soon as I get the green light, I'll give you all the details.  

Until then, I desperately need new art supplies to get me started.  I need 21 canvases, a lot of new paint, countless ink cartridges and a ton of cardstock!

My hopes are that I can sell a few originals to at least get a good start on the first 5 pieces this week.

Any and all purchases made will help me immensely.  No matter how big or small, any purchase will be greatly appreciated!

I'll be back super soon with more news and some springtime photos!

Until Next Time:

Hi! Just checking in to see how your project is coming along. Hope you're not working too hard!

Thank you for checking in Laura. You are so sweet.

Yes...I am beyond busy with this new project. top it off, the printer I use for my art work just died, so I'm scrambling to get a new little printer. I have all summer to create the 20 illustrations, but I need to get the book cover done ASAP. Hoping to drum up some business in my Etsy shop so I can get a printer this weekend.

How are you? I hope you're well and enjoying the spring time.
