It's eco-friendly! It's fun! Choose your candy colors and click to pay ($20, same as mailing a box of greeting cards!)

Seahorse Notebooks

February 17, 2011

I made notebooks for Holly's class. They turned out adorable, so I thought I'd offer them here.

Printed to order from original linocut.  Space at the bottom for me to stamp your child's name in black ink.  (Or leave blank for your child to write their own name.)

$10 apiece, get them while they last.

Blank Seahorse Notebook

(Size is A5 = 6 x 8 1/4 inches.  Blank inside.  Made from recycled paper.)

Artwalk 2010

June 1, 2010

It's true.  This weekend, I'll be opening the locked doors of my studio TO THE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME, as part of the Atlantic Avenue Artwalk (downloadable map). We'll start at 1pm Saturday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.  The first five attendees will receive a key to the city.  I'm not saying which city. Later we'll have snacks and an art project.  I'll show work from my book-in-progress and other interesting things. All visitors may have their photo taken in a vintage child-sized top hat I brought back from Paris.  I'm pretty sure it's magic!

If that's not enough enticement, Holly & Dave will host a lemonade stand & tag sale out front.  I hear they make crazy deals.

GUION OPEN STUDIO AND RIBBON-CUTTING CEREMONY

1pm - 6pm Saturday & Sunday, June 5-6. 264 Dean Street (b/w Nevins & 3rd Ave)

Say It With Candy

December 4, 2009

If you've been stumped for what to do as a holiday greeting this year, allow me to suggest a virtual M&M greeting.

Between now and December 23, I will draw any phrase you want, in M&Ms, and send you the artwork. It's eco-friendly and fun for the whole family! Just visit my blog (if you got this message via email) to choose your candy colors and type a message. Click to pay ($20, the same as mailing a box of greeting cards). Within 24 hours I will send you a digital file ready for emailing to your friends and family, blogging, or whatever suits your fancy.

The first person to order also gets the original drawing of their holiday message, for keeps! Happy Holidays!
