And the winners of the 3 print packs are…

First Prize – Tressa
Second Prize – Jean Young
Third Prize – LoveMeKnot Creations

Rather than tearing up little pieces of paper like I’ve done in the past or asking a family member to pick a number between such and such I traveled to Random.org and had them pick three random numbers between 1 and 44 as that was how many comments there was.

I’ll be packaging your print packs tonight and mailing them off to you tomorrow. Thank you everyone for entering and leaving wonderful comments for me to read. It was nice to have you around to celebrate my 500th blog post.

Cheers all!

About the Prints

Each print will be signed, dated and titled by me on the back in pencil. Each will arrive with a dated certificate of authenticity accept for the mini print in Prize one.

What if I WIN? :)

On that note, if you win I will contact you by the secret email you left here. Next Monday; July 28, 2008 at midnight AST I will randomly draw three names from the comments and mail you your print pack to wherever you live in this beautiful world. I will need you to email me back with your accurate physical mailing address that will never be shared within 48 hours of receiving the winning email notification or I will draw another name. I’ll announce the winners publicly as soon as I have all three confirmed. Comments will close Monday, June 30, 2008 at 12:00AM AST.

… and What if I Don’t Win? :(

And if you don’t win, each print is available for purchase in my Art shop.

Thank you and Good Luck!!

It’s Tuesday – Time for Another ART Giveaway!

Comments are now closed on this contest post. :)
I’ll be drawing the winner and contacting them tonight.

This week I am giving away…
Mother Goose is Loose Creating Fairytales Everywhere!

Mother Goos Is Loose...

Last time I gave away a Four Seasons Print.

The rules are simple

Leave your name, blog address (if you have one), and email (which I will not share) and comment on this post once only please. Next Tuesday I will randomly draw one name from the comments and mail you Mother Goose is Loose.

About Mother Goose is Loose

This print that I am giving away is a second. I had been wondering what to do with the beautiful reproductions that print out crooked, are a tad to bright or too dark, or I goofed up on cutting to small. Needless to say they exist in my studio. And I don’t believe in throwing them away. There is nothing wrong with these prints, except that they are seconds and don’t meet the standard I have in place for retailing at the regular price. Just as a potter has seconds so to does an artist. In the Fall I’ll be listing seconds for sale in my shop. Keep an eye out for those listings.

The print you will receive measures 7 3/8 by 7 3/8 inches rather than the 8×8 inch version I sell. The printed image size is 7×7 inches (same as the one I sell) and the color quality is identical. I will sign and date the back of this print and mark it as a second. Sooooo….

What if I WIN? :)

On that note, if you win I will contact you by the secret email you left here. I will need you to email me back with your accurate physical mailing address that will never be shared. I will ship worldwide for free! I’ll announce the winner publicly next Monday. Comments will close Monday, June 30, 2008 at 12:00AM AST.

… and What if I Don’t Win? :(

And if you don’t win the print, it is available for purchase in my Art shop.

Thank you!

And the winner is…

…Betty Rood of Simply Southern. She was the eleventh commenter.

To do the Censored Art draw I wrote out the number’s 1 through 16 which represented the 16 commenters and drew one out of a glass. I am a day late announcing the winner as I’ve been away from a computer most of the weekend only now being able to sit down and write this out.

Congratulations Betty!!! Your two ACEO’s will be mailed to Alabama Monday morning.

Thanks to everyone who entered. Cheers!

Censored Art Giveaway… erm Contest! …or Censorship by Bananas?

I have art to give away to you, my readers and friends.

UPDATE The contest is now closed. No more entries will be accepted. I’ll announce the randomly drawn winner tomorrow :). Thanks everyone.

The prize!

The rules are simple

Leave your name, blog address (if you have one), and email (which I will not share) and comment on this post once only please. Next Saturday I will randomly draw one name from the comments and mail you Censored by Banana and his female counterpart, Censorship by Flower.

About the Bananas

They are prints of the original miniature drawings. The originals were drawn on acid free textured cream colored card stock using my favorite Pilot pens. You should go and read the comments left on Flickr for these. I’m still laughing!

I print and hand cut all my prints. They were printed with gorgeous Vivera Inks on heavy 170gm2 matte photo paper. They are crisp, clean and will last for generations to come. They will be safely placed into an acid free rigid sleeve and packaged into an unbending mailer for shipping.

An ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They always measure 2.5″ by 3.5″ and can be created in any medium. They are the exact size of a hockey, Magic or baseball card. Mat them and place into your favorite 5″ by 7″ or 8″ by 10″ frame.

What if I WIN? :)

On that note, if you win I will contact you by the secret email you left here. I will need you to email me back with your accurate physical mailing address that will never be shared. I will ship worldwide for free! I’ll announce the winner publicly next Saturday.

… and What if I Don’t Win? :(

And if you don’t win the set, they are available for purchase in my Art shop along with the other emotionally charged art!

Thank you!
