Live and in Person

This Saturday I will be half of table #59 at the RISD Alumni sale.

I'll be selling the stuff I offer in my Etsy store--prints and greeting cards--and some other goodies will be making a premier: awesome, awesome postcards, some original paintings at bargain prices, and fabric!

I've been preparing for the whole display and packaging and everything, and will post pictures of the set up after the event.

(If you can't make it to Providence, that's okay. I'll be listing the things that don't sell on my Etsy shop when I get home.)

The sale is from 10 to 4 this Saturday, May 2nd, on Benefit Street. I've been doing ceremonial dances to ensure that the weather continues to be as wonderful as it is right now.

Also, I finished a painting: (prints and the original will be, you guessed it, available this Saturday.)

This is based on a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale called The Elderflower Witch, although I took some liberties, mainly removing a character and changing the appearance of the witch from an older Norwegian. Consider this the beginning of my campaign to quit drawing pale, skinny brunettes (except for actual self portraits, of course) and introduce a little diversity into my work.


I Dedicate this to Mr. Taxman

I have new work to show, but first, an extremely compelling answer to the question, "Where have I been for five weeks?"

Where I started:

Where I ended:

This year, I did my taxes by myself, for the first time, start to finish. My Dad gave me a big maroon binder, recommended Turbo Tax, and answered my (occasionally panicked) questions. Today I mailed off five envelopes and a lot of money, and I feel great. The best part is that as a freelancer, I'll pay my taxes quarterly from now on, so the task will never be this insurmountable again. Never mind that I'll have to do this four times as often.

To celebrate my mathematical triumph and in an effort to revive my limping checking account, I've stocked my Etsy store with a fine selection of prints, including two Brand New Pieces. (I'll blog about these later this week, including the exclusive location where I'll be selling the originals, but for now, visit my Etsy store
