The Dragon Art Craft Box has been two years in the planning. We have been taking business classes with RAIN an organization that helped us plan and expand our ideas. . You can order the box by clicking on Dragon Art Craft Box page above. This is a subscription box. Each box includes at least three projects with full color instructions, online videos, and full size tools. There are also bonuses, collectables, and extra materials put into the boxes. The projects are designed by artisans working in the art field today. We are creating innovators! Come join in the fun. There is also opportunities for business owners to advertise in our box. Our customers will appreciate the ads, because the money raised from adds will be used to give customers coupons for cheaper boxes or to buy them extra materials. To find out more click on our dragonartco link above.
Dragon Art has moved. Our new location has a gallery. We are looking for other artists who want to participate in a co-op experience.
So, I was hired to illustrate a book. I am starting some practice sketches, to start playing with characters and working out the concept. None of this will make the finished book, but it is nice to have a purpose to play.
This past month, has consisted of secret creating. I finished many custom secret projects. Today, I find myself at the Brownsville Art Center getting to quietly sketch and plan some future projects. It is very relaxing. I will be here today and tomorrow.
The Brownsville Art Association consists of an art co-op and craft sales. This sweet little town, is a perfect fit for the Keppol's art. We love the warm inviting atmosphere. Though we each only work 1/2 a day each month, our items can be found there during regular business hours for now on. The town has a holiday celebration coming up!
We are at Jayne Smolley Studios today, with some of our work. We also have work in two other shows right now. Too fun.
I was excited to see that one of my latest illustrations made the cut for the November/December issue of the Newsworthy. The Oregon chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators puts out the Newsworthy every other month. I am thrilled to have an illustration chosen for it.
My whole family is participating in the Last Resort Players productiin of Annie. I snuck away for a few minutes, and went to the art show tonight to take pictures of my pieces for this blog post. When I got there I found out that I'd won third place.
Today Karylynn, Jessalynn, and I all moved art into the Brownsville Art Gallery. We have card holders and a display for tiarras on their way, but otherwise it went smoothly. The wonderful ladies that run the gallery were extremely helpful and kind. I think we will love it there.
