ongoing results of FREE halloween CAT cards

i'm exploring free art

(sometimes in conjunction with pellet (info here) who, also, right now, has a free art contest)


been asking friends and strangers to email me cat photos, in return I mail them spooky halloween cards with their cat photo, somehow, worked into the art - example above of Silas
2 more in the mail, not putting them up until I'm sure they've been received, to not spoil the surprise

other free cat and/or halloween card project was held in person, last Saturday, at the Pacifica Art League in Palo Alto

this is even more direct, they get to watch the art created in front of them
examples below

much thanks go to Liz Lada and Chrystelle for promoting, eBlasts, twitter, balloons, posters & candy

Liz, I still want to make a card for you

one result, continue to notice with these, is everyone appears happy, even when the art is, ... questionable (kind of make a decision and go with it, so turning Nila & Ila into pumpkin and ghost. well, I'd just like another chance to do it again)


FREE CAT halloween cards at The Pacific Art League

I'll be at The Pacific Art League in Palo Alto this Saturday, October 24, 11-3 hand creating halloween cards.


First come first served. And the cards will be made JUST FOR YOU. Bring along a photo of your cat & I might just work him/her into the art!

While you are there, be sure to peruse the 10 scrolls, on view in the new hall gallery. These modern interpretations of the traditional scroll form first showed in August at the Kaleid Gallery in San Jose. I was fortunate that Dotti Cichon, of PAL, invited me to show them in Palo Alto. So for those of you who missed the Kaleid Gallery show, they are up until the end of October.
hope to see you and your cat photos this Saturday (or you and your cat!)
