All things uncomely and broken,
all things worn-out and old,
The cry of a child by the roadway,
the creak of a lumbering cart,
The heavy steps of the ploughman,
splashing the wintry mould,
Are wronging your image that blossoms
a rose in the deeps of my heart.

With the coming of February comes that sometimes dreaded, sometimes exalted holiday- Saint Valentines. Some people are in love. I'm lucky enough to be one of those elite, personally. But I realize not everyone has a song on their lips and butterflies churning in their guts. I remember dark times where Valentines Day was just another day that amplified my loneliness. One year in particular I bought Placebo's 'Without You I'm Nothing' and made collages about heartbreak and venereal diseases. I kept this feeling in mind for my Love/Anti-Love sale; After all, not everyone's in love. This collection includes 50% off signed art prints, select original artwork, and wooden trinket boxes. This is also the debut of my new notecard series. CLICK HERE to check what's available in the shop.
And here are notecard sets that aren't available to buy yet. I'm looking for a boutique that's interested in selling them. If you're interested, or know of any place that may be please comment below.

If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next.

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame?

At being so young and being so vain

And if you tolerate this

Then your children will be next

I previously wrote about the kind contributions other struggling artists have made to help the Haitian relief effort. Now it's my turn. I'm not as popular as they are, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I listed an Ebay auction of my 8 by 10 art print Hollow Eyed, whose proceeds will be going straight to the Red Cross. The bidding starts at a measly 99 cents- 90% off the usual price! If you can't afford to bid, please repost this blog or the auction link. As per usual the winning bidder wins a high quality photo print that comes in a protective acetate case, with the option of having it signed.

Haiti And The Empathy Of Artists

Part of this was crossposted via my Posterous blog. Pardon the double post. I just have to spread the word as widely as my little internet mouthpiece will carry.
I'd like to commend and highlight all the struggling artists who got their arses in gear to do things to benefit the relief effort in Haiti. Many of these people I interact with and/or keep tabs on via various social networking sites. They amaze me. Below are a few artists of note. Please check out their sales and auctions. 100% of the proceeds go to the Red Cross and other relief efforts.
The first is Christie Bastet. She's auctioning off one of her creepy art dolls. CLICK HERE to go directly to the Ebay auction. The bidding is still under $30!

Larry West made a beautiful poster in memorium of the devastation going on. You can see it for yourself if you check out his DEVIANTART page. He's urging people to donate directly to the Red Cross. The poster is free to download and redistribute.

Molly Crabapple, infamous for her work with the Philadelphia branch of Dr. Sketchys, auctioned off an original 3x5 pen and ink drawing via Twitter, (Take THAT those of you who refute the positive use of social networking sites!) raising $200.
As for my own efforts, I'm using this entry to try and get more exposure to these empathetic creatives' endeavors. Bid if you can afford it. Repost and spread the word if not. I'm planning on either working on a new original work whose sale will be going to relief efforts. Check back for updates.

2010 has already brought excitement and letdown. I had planned to show work at a gallery opening at the Phoebus Gallery in Virginia at the beginning of the month, but the opening was indefinitely postponed. It MAY still happen in the coming months. That depends on what's going on with the gallery itself. If I hear word I'll post details when they come. I had wanted to keep it hush hush until I had plans finalized, but le sigh, "life happens when you're making other plans."
Continuing with a new sketchbook and a new year (Following the Indievisual sketch challenge), I have my latest rash of sketches from 2010 thus far:

I bid adieu with a photo of me sketching on the train.
