Fast And FURRY-ous

Last Thursday, I was at my favorite shop in O’bryonville (Indigenous) for a benefit/activity.  I made block prints, and we shared the proceeds from sales with Cincinnati’s United Coalition for ANimals

Here’s a short video about the event:

Sorry the audio wasn’t the best…there was a lot of background noise.

If you missed the chance to add a print to your collection, AND support a great cause; prints are still available for a limited time at my website:

Walk On The Wild Side Thursday in O’Bryonville

sorry for the late notice, because tomorrow, Thursday April 21st is an event you don’t want to miss. I’ll be participating at O’Bryonville’s Walk On The Wild Side. Every month, the neighborhood businesses, have extended hours, special , and portions of sales go to a great cause.

This month’s cause is UCAN United Coalition of Animals. I will be at my favorite O’Bryonville shop, Indigenous, demonstrating relief printmaking. I created a special animal themed card especially for the occasion. 50% of proceeds will go to UCAN and help local animals.
