6 News, Glorious News!

I have some exciting news to announce! The Director of Exhibitions at the Philadelphia International Airport saw my show at Cafe Estelle last week and immediately offered me the opportunity to show a selection of similar work at Terminal B in the airport from May through November 2010.

The exhibition will basically be an expansion of my "say hello to my little friends" show, with many more new items included and an installation element as well. This will by far be my biggest show to date, so I am definitely looking forward to it.

In other happy critter news, I am officially a partner of the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals! All members of the PSPCA will receive a 10% discount on any item in my Etsy shop after presenting a valid 2009 membership card. Pretty sweet deal, if I do say so myself! I'll get a fancy schmancy "PSPCA Partner" window cling and everything! Once I create a logo, my information will be up at the PSPCA membership page.

I've been trying to get my work in a lot more retail shops, both online and out there in the real world. For those New Yorkers who frequent the Chelsea area, keep an eye out at Nest Interiors NY, where they will soon be selling prints of my entire "say hello to my little friends" series. Also, be sure to stop by Shana Logic by the end of the month, where my fine art prints will be for sale in the company of some incredibly talented artists. Wallets and passport cases featuring my illustrations are now available at the Tinymeat shop, so be sure to check those out as well!

I'd also like to mention that my main squeeze, the lovely Miss Laura Kicey, will be exploring Iceland this summer and is currently accepting sponsors for her trip. In return for donating $30, $50 or $100 toward her trip (or any other amount of their choice), the sponsor will receive a 8x12, 11x17 or 16x20 photo of their choice (depending on the amount spent) from her Icelandic adventures. She is an amazing talent and I can't wait to see the result of her long journey to the land o' not-so-icy-ice. I know what I'll be doing with my birthday money (I'm crossing my fingers that she'll find a field of obnoxiously cute Icelandic horses).

  2. Awesome news, congratulations!!! With my husband moving to Philly in June, I am sure if we do any traveling I will likely be going up to Philly first and then we will leave from there (he'll probably find more friends with cars to drive us to the airport -- none of my friends down here in DC have their own cars - ha!) so if we make any trips in the second half of 2010 I will absolutely check it out and appropriately squeal with glee!
