Attention All Doodlers! Netflix Call for Art!

It isn’t often that a call of this caliber enters my radar, but when it does, be rest assured I’ll be passing the information on to all of you!

Netflix has received so much great envelope art that they have issued a call for art for their fall 2016 mailers. That means a chance for us to get our artwork printed and distributed to the masses. Yes! You read correctly. Although the streaming portion of Netflix is more popular than its DVD home delivery service, they still have 5.3 million subscribers who receive movies by mail. Multiple that number by the 3 or 4 movies each subscription has in their possession at one time and… BAM! That is a number too great to ignore when you’re trying to get your art out there.

They are looking for art that falls under the themes of Back-to-School, Fall and Halloween. You can find all the details in the link below.

Best of Luck! Be sure to share with us here if you’re participating, so we can cheer you on!

P.S. I forgot to mention that the deadline for this one is coming up FAST! MAY 16, 2016!

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!

In the Mail: Jackpot!

Recently, time to blog has taken a back seat to spending time in the studio. A girl’s gotta have her priorities, right?

Just now, I’m taking a little down time to let some ideas simmer and give much needed drying time to other projects in various stages. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it, than to share my recent mail with you. I heard from a few of my favorite people, some of them more than once!

The following pieces amount to a months worth of mail…
