A Springtime Flutter

This post is actually two fold. First, sharing with you some progress photos of Flutter...(My exciting gallery exhibit that will be opening in a couple weeks). Then ending with my "I need to take a break from this insanity and appreciate the nice weather" photos of Spring showing up around our yard!
Doing a screen printed narrative actually turned out to be a lot more work than I had anticipated. I was illustrating at the laundromat, VA hospital, my partner's parents house, in bed, at the breakfast table, and in the car....pretty much living this project for the last few months. So...

Flutter deets: first ever narrative, first completely solo gallery show, and the release of my first zine! [I get excited about firsts!]

Mixed media screen prints with sparkly inks and hand drawn tidbits tell the story. The posters, each unique, are created in additions of three. The limited addition zine (of 50) is made up of a portion of the illustrated posters..(silver ink!!!) The zine is being printed via the most fantastic Chris Dreyer of Dreyer Press. And as seen above, super huge thank you/shout out to Scott Ellis of Blue Button for his screen printing assistance! They are amazing!

A public artist reception will be held during Art Walk at the Kolva Sullivan Gallery (115 S. Adams St.) June 3rd from 5-9pm.

And now for some springtime love...
 I will have happy poppies for you shortly. (Like hundreds of poppies taking over everywhere kinda happy! ♥)
