Holiday Events

Next Saturday I will have the Viking Coloring Book Pop-up Gallery at the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts’ Holiday Art Sale in Tracy, California. If you’ve missed it at other events do try to show up and support the local arts community.

I’ll actually have a slightly larger selection than normal since the event is an actual art sale. I don’t mention it often but periodically I do more commercial style art and recently some of it went public. My husband’s band, Washboard Monkeys, just released their first album and I was the artist for the cover. If you’re interested in what the whole thing looked like when finished check out their website.

This morning I am updating my Etsy page and Redbubble page with new goods for the holidays. If you’re looking for early medieval themed art for gifts please check them out. There is still time to get things shipped out before the end of the year.

Things to do for today!

For those who are avoiding the crowds as I am this Black Friday here is a link to the fantastic Rediscovering the Vikings Conference being hosted by the World Tree Project at UC Cork. They are almost done for today but will be starting up again tomorrow.

The Viking Coloring Book Is SUBMITTED!

After a hectic past few weeks I’ve uploaded all of the illustration plates and labels to the Dropbox I’ve set up to share things with the Viking Coloring Book publisher. Hooray! Here is part of the reward for my $100 and $500 level backers. I’m at that pins and needles stage while I wait to see if the publisher likes everything as is.

Saturday I presented a poster at the California Library Association conference in Sacramento. Lots of folks took business cards and more than a few asked about the Viking themed public events I organize.

That evening my husband’s band, Washboard Monkeys, held their album release party at Whisky Barrel Stockton. It was a very good show. If you’ve ever wondered if I draw anything other than nature and the Viking world the album art for this first album and their logo can serve as an example as both are also my work.

The rest of the weekend has been recovering and spending time with our fur-posse of guinea pigs. Now my apartment is almost back to normal after such big projects. Well, as normal as an apartment with a medievalist, a musician and a herd of tea drinking guinea pigs can be, anyways.

Don’t forget if you are looking for Viking themed art to give as presents this year to check out my Etsy page and my Redbubble page for a whole variety of things. If you’d rather have a pet portrait or house illustration please message me. There is still plenty of production time before the end of the year.
