This week marks the beginning of something new. In shameless promotion of my Drawn and Divided project, I’ve gotten 10 prints from CatPrint to give away! I now have TWO prints to offer for FREE those amazing people who’d like to support my project on Patreon.
During the year, you will also get a collection of prints and useable postcards of already completed watercolors, and those in progress. The goal is 100 watercolors! There might be an acrylic piece in there too, but that remains to be seen.
This weekend I’ll be setting up a poll over there for your input, so be sure to check that out!
For as little as $1 a month, you will be supporting my on-going project Drawn and Divided. Consisting mostly of watercolors, but may well include other mediums depending on the subjects I’ll be sketching or painting, this project takes a look at the world by way of my travel sketches and on-site photos. What do you get out of it? Well, aside for the wonderful feeling of being part of a creative effort, you will also get free prints, or sets of postcard versions of the sketches… Even collections. I already have a series of 12 watercolors that, one by one with your help, will be shared with you. Please don’t be afraid, you can reject a month or even cancel if you change your mind, but levels start at just one dollar a month! Other levels include $3, $5, and $7, so there is something for everyone, and everyone will get something out of it.
Some of my horse related pieces might become part of the deal too, if anyone wishes it! As of today, I have two horse prints to start things going – to anyone pledging $1 a month, I’ll send you the set of two prints. This will let me reproduce the watercolors! Visit my Patreon to join in.
These are the two prints I’ll send you, and below them are two samples of the twelve (so far) watercolors.
One of two free prints for becoming a Patron! Gloss print, approximately 6 x 9 inches
One of the two current free gifts for becoming a Patron. Printed on card, approximately 8 x 11 iinches.
Two of the twelve current watercolors:
2.5 x 3.5 inches, acrylic, on Topps cardstock.
Up for auction, and ending tomorrow, is the last of two available Rogue One series 1 Artist Proof cards. If you wish to bid, please click the image or here to visit Ebay, and thank you!
Work has also begun on Topps’ Walking Dead trading card/sketch card set. Pretty nervous about that, not sure if my work will be approved! Crossing my fingers.
There will soon be another iCardz Brothers in Arms: America at War card available as well – likely on Etsy. I have a few sketched out, just looking for a chance to paint them. AND, a new painting in the works! On the theme of Star Wars, and I’m looking forward to that.
Also have a text update on my Patreon page, will soon have images to go along with it. For one dollar a month (refuseable at any time, cancelable as well), you will be supporting my Drawn and Divided project. More perks are becoming available, and even more free and reduced stuff will be given and offered to Patreons as time goes on. Check it out!
Welp…… It’s been a rollercoaster of a year. In the world, we lost so many public figures including Gene Wilder, Robert Vaughn, Florence Henderson, Fidel Castro, John Glenn, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, and unfortunately more. Personally it’s been full of ups and downs, with a couple of family events that have been difficult.
It’s easy to get mired in the nastiness that happens. This year, for me, there have been good things too – a trip to Europe that was more than memorable, my job is still here and I still love it, and most importantly my adult-kids are healthy and wonderful as is my other half. How about you? What makes you happy these days when you think about it?
I’ve a new post on my Patreon – a horse and his window. This one is a public post, have a look! 🙂
Also completed are two Witch cards from Perna Studio’s Witchcraft trading card set. These two are available from my Etsy store.
Please have a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year! Cheers!

Super short note to everyone… Thank you to EVERYONE for having dropped by my site this year, for having encouraged me, for letting me share my world with you. May you all have a safe holiday (though “holiday” is quite the wrong word as most people I know will be working as usual next week, including myself, but hey I am not complaining one bit) and nothing but smooth sailing and good health in the New Year!
I look forward to chatting with you when we’re all sober again, and sharing my sketching as I walk off those Christmas pounds. :-p Please take care and here is to the human race in 2017. Cheers!
