Lone Wolf, No Club


Now available at Horse & Hare! This never released gem has been dug up from the archives. Neil carved the block awhile ago and was going to do a t-shirt design with it but wasn't pleased originally with how it came out.  Luckily he's had a change of heart and this howlin' wolf can roam free!

New Tarot Print!



The Tower card is finished! The Tower is the 16th of the Major Arcana. Although the card is typically considered negative; symbolizing war, chaos, crisis, ruin and so on, with this destruction and shock comes awakening, reassessment of one's beliefs, renewal and change.

For sale at www.horseandhare.etsy.com

Sneak Peeks...





We've got our hands in a number of projects these days. Neil got on a paper mache kick for awhile and then worked on this Stephen King print. It will soon be available for sale in our etsy shop. Also, fans of his tarot prints will be happy to know that he is working on The Tower card again. He started it last Fall but had to put it down for awhile.

I have been doing some painting. This four foot square panel is a commission for some friends. It's still in the beginning stages. Eventually it will have a lovely poem on it.

Gotta run but hope everyone has a great weekend!

T-Shirt Tuesday - Yellow Bird Project

Yellow Bird Project is a non-profit Montreal-based organization that works with indie musicians to create original t-shirt designs. The t-shirt sales profits are then donated to a charity of the artist/band's choosing. This is a great way not only to promote independent musicians but to raise awareness and money for some worthy causes. Here are a few my favorites...






Proceeds to benefit Art for Change




Profits go to The Teenage Cancer Trust

New Tree Print!



I know I'm a little biased but I really love my man's new tree print.
More new things to come soon...

2011 in Review

2011 was bittersweet.  Uncannily so. We lost two people close to us but following each of those losses we experienced great happiness at the weddings of close (yet far away) friends and family members. Overall though, 2011 was a great year for us. Looking back at my blog posts I'm pretty proud and amazed at all we accomplished - big and small.

So here's my Top 5 from 2011:



Quit My Job   Went Part-time: Ok, so I didn't quit my job all together...reality kind of set in. But, I did manage to go part time and I'm a lot happier and saner now.






The Great Wall of Winchester Book Gallery:  By far this was our biggest accomplishment this year. I can't thank Andy & Jen enough for the opportunity. Not only did this project push us creatively and force us to work collaboratively but it brought us closer to the community and we made some great friends along the way.






Schoolhouse Craft:  Winning the trip to Seattle and the School House Craft conference was the biggest and best surprise of the year. I learned so much and met some really awesome people.








New School/New Hats: This was another surprise. I had kind of given up on finding an alternative school for my daughter but not only did our daughter start at a new wonderful school this year but Neil and I started teaching art there as well!




And all the rest...
I'm having a hard time picking a 5th thing! 2011 was a crazy year! I won a crystal trophy...we travelled a bunch...met some cool artists and a man name Deep Sea John...saw one of my best friends get married (and I got to be bridesmaid), swapped cookies, saw some good shows, ate some good food, made lots of art and made lots of new friends! So here's to an even better year ahead!
Happy New Year everyone!
