Help Me Help Pets!

There are always those people during a crisis that say, “I wonder how this is affecting the animals?”

It’s me. I’m those people.

Currently thousands of pets are facing starvation in areas of China like Wuhan . People were forced to evacuate their homes because of the corona-virus thinking they could go back in a few days. Days turned into weeks and now pets are dying due to lack of food and water. Many worried pet owners are contacting local humane societies to help and check on their pets. Volunteers are trying to do everything they can to help these animals, trying to visit over 700 residences a day. I wanted to help so I created my latest piece called “Love ‘Em, Don’t Leave ‘Em”.

From now until May, 100% of the profits from this piece will go to Humane Society International which is an organization working with the smaller local groups that are currently fighting for these pets. When they aren’t saving pets, HSI focuses on removing dogs as a source of food and fighting for animal rights!

Stickers and pins are a great way to help out without having to spend a lot! They are both less than $5 and the money earned goes to a great cause!! Every little bit helps! If you’re strapped for cash and can’t donate right now, liking and sharing this post is a huge help as well. Let’s get as many people to see this as possible! Thank you so much for your help!

*Pins 👉 rdbl.co/2wMRbnF 👈

It means so much to me to be able to do some good with my art. This has been a lifelong dream of mine and I love each and every one of you for helping me achieve it! Let’s save some animals!

Stay safe, free spirits!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I hope everyone had a great and safe holiday! I decided it would be a good day to paint a four leaf clover on my new wood slices I recently got! I’ve been wanting to try my hand at some 3-D painting so I used this for some practice. It’s not the traditional shamrock that accompanies the holiday but four leaf clovers carry luck and who doesn’t want a bit of that right now!

This would be perfect to hang on your door to bring in good luck to your home! I think I might do some more paintings with this idea in mind and see what I can come up with.

If you are interested in purchasing this piece or have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below! Thanks for stopping by this week! Next week , I will share my latest pattern design! Check back soon!

Best of luck, free spirits!

Spring is Being a Tees!

Warm weather is on it’s way! We made it folks. We survived another Winter! Although, I don’t know about everyone else but this was one of the most mild Winters we have had in a long time. We had maybe two good snowstorms but other than that just rain and wind. Now it’s already getting into the high 50’s and low 60’s; I live in upstate New York! That’s insane!

So it’s time to put away the hoodies and get some new spring tees out. Let your skin soak up the sunshine and sport one of my awesome tees that I have available on Teepublic. I never formally announced my arrival to Teepublic but I now have a store through going on a few months now. I just ordered one of my tees before starting this entry so I am very excited to get that in the mail! This is the one I ordered:

I love the color! It matches my mandala beautifully! There are so many colors to choose from and I have a bunch more designs in my shop so check it out and let me know what your favorite one is!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you had a great season! Sending warm wishes and happy Spring vibes your way! Check back soon for more artwork and awesome merch!

Spring forward, free spirits!

Sloth Totem Drawing

I am very happy with how my “Sloth Totem” turned out! I stayed completely care-free the entire time I worked on this piece. I didn’t know how it would turn out in the end but I didn’t worry about it. I just let it happen and it happened well! I have shared this on social media and so far it is getting a lot of positive feedback.

I’m not entirely sure why people love sloths though! To be honest, I think they are a little creepy in real life. I can totally get on board with the calm and chill lifestyle though!

I will cover the symbolism of sloth after Inktober is completed. I shared a FSM Update to explain everything that is coming up in the next month! Make sure you give it a glance to see what’s in store!

Speaking of store, if you would like your own print of “Sloth Totem” it is available in my shop here.

You can also find home decor, apparel, accessories and more with my “Sloth Totem” piece. Click here.

Stay chill, free spirits!

Horse of a Different Color

I’ve had some of these beauties hiding in a folder on my computer and decided it was time to share them with the world! I have literally gone horse crazy with my Horse Totem drawing (originally done in colored pencil). I’ve been wanting to get better with my photoshop skills and in the near future would like to get a digital drawing tablet. Yes, the digital age has finally grabbed me. So here are some designs I’ve created for horses of a different color! Which one is your favorite?

Birthday Blooms

Yesterday was my boss’s birthday at my landscaping job. Our birthdays are only four days apart! I’ve been with the company for a while now and she’s become someone I really look up to. She’s an amazing entrepreneur who works her “arse” off and is strong willed. I decided to draw her a picture and surprise her with it! I tried to figure out what her favorite flower was but no one knew. I chose an Iris since it is in bloom on her birthday. She was very happy to receive it! It was nice to get back to some realism work. I will have to do more in the near future!

Like what you see? You can get this image on apparel, home décor or a print of your own! Find it in my Redbubble store!

Mother Bear – Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all! I completed my Mother’s Day inspired drawing entitled, “Mother Bear”. I am so happy with how this turned out. Blue and orange hues together are some of my favorite colors! They really *POP* together. I have also been wanting to create a drawing of a mama bear and her cub for a very long time now. I finally got around to it and I’m happy I finally did it!

You can find it in my shop at Redbubble here. Available for prints, apparel, home décor and more! Check it out and get one for your Mother Bear!

You can also read about bear symbolism here on a post I created previously with my Bear Totem drawing.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your have a great day with your mother and/or children. Plus, wish Mother Earth a happy Mother’s Day! Plant a tree, a flower or just enjoy a nice nature hike!

Carpe diem, free spirit!

Twitterpated

Spring has finally arrived! The weather is trying to make the shift from cold and frigid to into warm and inviting. I can hear the birds throughout the day. It was silent during the winter then one day, it seemed all the birds came out at once to sing their songs! I love it! I always think of the scene from the movie Bambi when the owl explains that all the birds are twitterpated! Twitterpated? Yes.

“Nearly everybody gets twitterpated in the springtime. For example, you’re walking along minding your own business, you’re looking neither to the left, nor to the right, when all of the sudden, you run smack into a pretty face. WHOO-WHOO! You begin to get weak in the knees, your head’s in a whirl! And then you feel light as feather, and before you know it you’re walking on air! And then you know what? You’re knocked for a loop! And you completely lose your head!” -Friend Owl

It makes me laugh every time I think about it. So in honor of springtime and a great movie here are is a collection of all the avian totems I have drawn so far.

There are still quite a few I need to cover but it’s a pretty great collection to start. I have the flamingo in the works right now. It’s going to be fun playing around with the different shades of pink. For now though, we have these beauties! You can read about each birds symbolism by clicking the links below.

You can also find prints and other cool products with these images @Redbubble and @Society6!
