I Like When James Draws

I’ve been going through old photos tonight and came across this one. It’s from November 2013 when I was working on “The Puzzle Painting”. James was 13 at the time and came to the studio with me. To keep him occupied (and since we were in an art studio) I gave him some stuff to draw with and this is what he came up with. Obviously, he is around my art a lot, but I rarely see him do this sort of thing. He has a great imagination and comes up with a lot of stuff on his own, so I thought it was kind of sweet that he made this. He doesn’t draw as much as he used to and he’s sort of traded in drawing for his love of theatre, which is great because if he can make it as an actor Coral and I will totally let him pay for us to live in Paris.

Enjoy!

Kickstarter: The Puzzle Painting Is Fully Funded!

fully funded!

This weekend was very exciting because “The Puzzle Painting” reached it’s funding goal of $4k! Yes, I did a few cartwheels and squealed like a little girl at a Taylor Swift concert. Thanks to all of you that have backed this project and shared it with your friends.

The really cool thing about reaching this goal early is that we still have 17 days left to continue to raise money for the project, which is great because the whole idea was to make a HUGE painting. The more people that back the project the bigger the painting will be.

If you would like to support the project, but don’t want a piece of the puzzle there are some other fun things available like an exclusive bottle opener keychain, sticker packs, greeting cards and also an exclusive t-shirt design.

Please keep sharing the link on your social media outlets like twitter, google+, facebook, tumblr, etc.

Thanks again!
All of your support really means a lot to me!
