Hello everyone! The monthly newsletter is here! Included in each monthly update is art that I’ve completed in the past month, links to videos that I’ve created (timelapses or instructional videos) this month, art that I’ve put up for sale and that which will be going up for sale shortly, a description of the next monthly raffle and how to enter (it’s at the bottom if you’re antsy!), and any other artsy news.
If you like to see my work as it comes out or as I’m working on it, I post almost-daily on Facebook, Minds, and Instagram, and my videos will also be posted on my Youtube and VidMe channels. My original work is currently for sale on Etsy.
Thanks as always for subscribing and feel free to leave a comment or send me a message if you have any questions or just want to say something; I will do my best to answer.
Last Month’s Artwork:
In case you haven’t seen, I’ve started my “50 Skulls Project,” where I plan to paint 50 paintings of skulls in 50 days (whoops, 51, I started one day too early, so I skipped a day yesterday!), to culminate on October 30th. On Halloween, I will auction them all off here on my website!
I’ve been doing pretty well on the project so far; some skulls are better than others but the point is to paint more often and make it a consistent habit so that I can start moving towards making art a full-time job! Here are the first 25 skulls; you can read more about the project here or about each skull here. Enjoy!
Last Month’s Videos:
I was able to make a short timelapse video for each skull painting except for the first one, so instead of linking each one, I’ll link to the playlist and you can choose which one(s) you’d like to see or you can watch them all!
Artwork for Sale:
If you’re interested in buying any of my original pieces, they will often be available on my Etsy site a few weeks after they’ve been painted. If there is a piece that catches your eye that has not yet been put up for sale, feel free to send me a message and I will be happy to let you know what the price will be and you can have the chance to claim the painting before I put it up for sale officially!
The skull paintings will be auctioned off on my website (the link is not yet available, but it will be linked from here when it is ready to go!) on Halloween (October 31st); but after that date, I may list any not sold in my Etsy store.
Every first Friday of every month, I will have a raffle, which you can enter to win something for free! This month’s raffle will be today, Friday, October 6th. For this raffle, I’d like to put some of my art on merchandise – stickers, magnets, mugs, cards, shirts, phones, whatever! So to enter the raffle, let me know (1) which item you think I should make and (2) which skull you’d like to see on it! The winner(s) will be decided on Saturday. Now I have to get back to painting more skulls so I can catch back up, so good luck and thanks for watching!! 🙂
