Day 135 is a 1 inch circle magnet. All glazed and glued and ready to go.
Well I was to this point in the blog post when I feel asleep on the couch sitting up last night, so I'm posting this before something happens and it doesn't go up for another day. I'll do my best to answer any questions you have about any piece I don't discuss well.
Yes, Creatures 141 and on are using Acrylic paint. These are the first creatures to include Acrylic paint to date. Black boarders are for photographic representation only and are not part of the artwork itself.
*Day 148 is a large banner taller than my son. I have to measure it and post the results. Every year there is project at Nye Beach here in Newport Oregon for local artists to decorate banners that are subsequently hung around nye beach from approximately June to November. In November the banners will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to support arts in the community. Since the creature has already been donated to the project you can't win the actual banner (unless you want to talk to me about bidding on it at the auction); however, if you want to join with me in this donation I will dedicate the piece to you (or anyone you choose) and you will receive a program from the project in November that includes images of all the banners made and your dedication. If no one enters on this piece I'll just leave the dedication out. I believe the goal of the Nye Beach Banner project is very similar to my Creature Card goals, in supporting viewing and ownership of art as well as funding classes to help those interested in the creative process.
Join me on Facebook where you can see these creatures a bit bigger :)
Day 135 - 148 creature drawings are open to anyone who hasn't yet won a total of three creatures since the start of May. The deadline to enter is 12 am pst, June 9th. Don't forget the last card will be Day 182.
When searching for a creature use the specific name or number only for best results.
