I am the door

good afternoon friends. i just got back from a whirlwind trip to San Francisco for the opening of the "Back for Seconds" group show at Gallery 1988. the show runs until July 28th, so if you are in the area stop in and check out the cool artwork.

i had 5 pieces in the show. 3 of the 5 sold on opening night, so i am super stoked on that. it is the first time i have had a piece sell on the opening night (or during the preview) of a show, so i must be doing something right. the first one (The Birth) is the original drawing for the ava shirt. the 2 remaining from the set of 5 that are still available for purchase are "The Birth" and "A Family Photo". If you are interested in owning either of them, please contact Katie at Gallery 1988SF at gallery1988sf@gmail.com

here are the 5 pieces i had in the show. please make sure to click on the pictures so they open up nice and big in their correct sizes.

ok, now onto one more fun thing. as stated in a previous post, i did a t-shirt design for the company 70*7 to benefit the wish for ava charity. pictures of the shirt and a link will be at the bottom of this post to refresh your memories.

now, i have worked it out with the company that for every shirt that someone buys, their name will be entered into a raffle. one shirt = one entry, five shirts = five entries. i am asking that the company (70*7) hold the raffle and pull one winning name.

what will the winner get, you ask? original artwork from me. i will do up a nicely detailed pen and ink drawing with a soft acrylic color wash over it framed up all nicey nice in a frame. the size of the drawing will be somewhere in the 8" x 10" range. it will be in the same style as the colorful ones at the beginning of this post. i am heavily booked, so i only ask for about 3 months to be able to complete the drawing (and give the winner the devoted time and effort that they deserve). i am excited for this raffle, and i hope that you are too.

now here is the info for the shirt:

this is a limited run of only 70 shirts. it is up for sale and now available thru 70*7

the price of the shirt is $30. half of the proceeds ($15 per shirt) go to the awishforava charity. the charity money will be used to help out ava's parents with medical bills and to go towards research for neuroblastoma.

it's a bit hard to get the full vibe on the design on the site, so here it is in it's original format:

and here is some guy i don't know wearing the shirt:

enjoy. and good luck to you all,
Maz
