Voltar Giveaway

Okay, several people suggested that I give away a piece of artwork. I think it is a good idea so what I am going to do, is give away a limited edition "Voltar" calendar. This piece was designed, illustrated, and printed last year as promo piece. I worked on the concept and illustrations with New York designer extraordinaire Ilene Block. We shared the piece as a promotional tool with 1800 Postcards who supplied the printing. They did a kick ass job with all of the spot varnishes, die cuts, foil stamping, etc. The wheels really turn to not only to show the date, but it will give you advice on your investments as well. This was a ton of fun to do. It is not often that you can go hog wild on a piece.

So my contest/give away is once I hit 50 "Followers", I will draw a number and match it with the person in my "Follower" list. I may do a second "Voltar" drawing once I reach 100. If the winner wants me to do so, I can sign the back of it. Does this sound like a good idea?
Not much new to report for this week. Our daughter was up for a visit before she heads out to Chicago so I was out of the studio for a majority of the week. I will have more to show and chat about next week.

A great quote: "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." Picasso

Chat with you next week.
