Support the arts!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you may know that my older daughter has graduated from art school and is a freelance illustrator.  Over the years you have occasionally seen her work (and when she was very young, her hands holding things while I took the pictures). Scroll down and see if you remember her drawings!

Here's the exciting news.
One of her illustrations was recently chosen to appear on Blue Moon Ale labels as part of their limited edition artists series.  The labels are out in stores, and now there is a "bonus" round, tied to social media.

You can help Erin by voting for her label on Facebook.
Click here, and Like her label.  

 

Feel free to Share, of course, and you can Like more than one label!
This only works on Facebook, and you must be 21 or older to participate. 

Thanks everyone, we appreciate your support.




This is a custom wedding portrait from her etsy shop.

You may recognize my profile picture which I cropped from one of our Christmas cards.

Extreme Christmas Card 2010


More recently, she drew the "wonderful" gifts on the front of another Christmas card.


This is a caricature from a few years back that she drew for my friend's wedding card.

And way back in middle school, a snow globe file she made for me in Photoshop.
