postheadericon The GoGA Collective and a New Website

Hello, lovelies! Sorry for the radio silence these last few months. I’ve been busy creating my new website, allisonweeksthomasart which is more art focused and less talkie! ūüėČ So please do bookmark the new page and join my newsletter for all the latest up and comings in my little corner of the universe.

Speaking of my little corner of the universe, I am now a part of the amazing GoGA Collective. The Collective consists of 7 amazing international artists, including yours truly, that holds monthly art auctions over on Facebook. You can find the GoGA’s page HERE. The next auction, Of Salt and Sea, begins this Sunday, June 12th at 4pm EST and ends at 4PM EST on the 14th.¬† This is an amazing auction featuring all sorts of mythical water beings from mermaids to selkies.

postheadericon Freebie Friday

I just wanted to show you guys how much I appreciate you! I created a downloadable for all of you… for FREE! Yay, FREE! ūüôā ¬†I think I may have to make this a monthly thing. It was a lot of fun to create something to share with you guys that you can have instantly. ¬†In the spirit of the upcoming Dia de los Muertos, I’ve created a set of four sugar skull girl bookmarks for you guys to print out at home. ¬†Print it on a nice white card stock for sturdiness… you could even laminate them! Or add a tassel. Or snazzy them up any way you like!

Just remember, this is my work, so please do not print them and sell them or redistribute them or claim them as your own.  By downloading and printing these out for yourself, you are agreeing to be honest. And I know you will, because you guys are the best!

I hope you enjoy them! And please, if you feel up to it, share the pics of your bookmarks on my Facebook page!

Which of course means more than pumpkin flavored every thing and spiked cider (which I can’t have at the moment as we are expecting a little bundle of joy this winter! squeee!)… it also means my beloved sugar skull girls have taken over my studio!
