Blog / 2020 / Making Art while Everything Falls Apart

July 16, 2020

Stay safe out there, my sweet friends! And if you have the financial ability to help out artists right now, please buy their art—you can buy mine if you like! I have been doing pretty okay so far during COVID-19, much better than many of my artist friends. If you’d rather donate to a relief fund for artists, I recommend this one since I have worked with one of its organizers, Creative Capital. This is the fund I have been donating to.

This dragonfly was commissioned by one of my Patreon supporters. They gave me $50 a month for six months and I made them this painting! There are prints and pretty things with this image in my Redbubble shop.

Maybe this post made you think of something you want to share with me? Or perhaps you have a question about my art? I’d love to hear from you!
