SXSW & American Greetings

Art
Mar 23, 2016

American Greetings 6Finally visited Austin (my first time) and what an experience. The city, the culture, the music, people and the food…. so so amazing. I worked three straight days drawing for American Greetings on two murals during SXSW 2016.

American Greetings 9The first mural was across 500 greeting cards. People were invited to watch me draw and on the last day the wall was taken apart and each person was given a piece of my art to frame and take home. Loved this experience and loved seeing how much my art changed when separated into individual pieces of art.

Love seeing how everyone is using the WHATLIFTSYOU coloring book! You guys always take my work one step further. Thank you for understanding my art the way that you do.

This book is not just about coloring and relaxing but about taking it a step further. Cut it out, wear it, try origami, wrap a present, give it to someone or frame it for your home. Here are some fun ideas on how to incorporate the drawings into your day to day lives;)
