Ghoulish Garments: Support Art Boutiki

0

I felt it only appropriate to support my printing partner Dan Vado aka The Big Kahuna at SLG Art Boutiki whose music hall, gallery and store in San Jose is currently shut down due to the pandemic.

He has designed some new shirts to sell online that will help benefit his small business. This one really spoke to me so I scooped one up to wear proudly. You should too!

Quite a few years ago I researched and looked high and low for a reliable t-shirt printer who would print custom 1 off shirts for me after poor quality control from a bigger manufacturer I was using. I wanted the best for my clients and I was determined to find just that.

I was pleasantly surprised and relieved when I came across Dan’s work online. A small business owner who was also actively supporting the arts and musicians in his community and was very interested in working with me to help me get my art professionally custom printed on garments for my clients. Win Win!

To this day I still love working with Dan and can trust that even across the country that my Ghoulish Garments are each custom made for my clients with special care and the results are top notch!

With that all being said, this also means that whenever you purchase a Ghoulish Garment in my Amazon shop that you are not only supporting myself as an artist but you are also supporting this incredible small business man that gives back to artists and musicians. And as you all know I am a firm believer in artists supporting artists!

Don’t forget if you have a photo of yourself rocking one of my wearable art shirts let’s see it! Share it with me so I can feature you on the Freaky Fanatics slide show of my portfolio site!

Stay Spooky & Supportive,

Back Bone: KeepItHandmade Auction Items Revealed

0

I created this little collage showcasing the items I will have up for bid for the Instagram Artist Auction taking place tomorrow at @keepithandmade. All of these items have been revealed on their page so go check them out and give the listings some love and shares while you wait for the auction to open.

This Artist Auction is a great opportunity for you to stay home and still get to shop! But this time you will be helping all the artists/vendors/small businesses that are participating. When the auction opens tomorrow at 7pm CST just visit the @keepithandmade Instagram page, go to the item you want and comment your bid amount. Be sure to read the caption description of every item for their starting bid and BIN details.

I would like to showcase 1 of my items as it is a special framed print of the art piece I drew and gifted to my dear friend Sid Haig. As most of you know Sid passed away last year so I have chosen to give all of my proceeds from this item to his wife, “my sista” Suzie. This will help her with the upcoming medical procedures and the expenses she needs help with now more than ever. So if you bid on any of my items please consider bidding on this one as the cause is very dear to my heart and I would really like to raise as much money as I can from this item to help her. You can find, like, share and bid on it HERE!

Happy Bidding!

Stay Spooky!
