coloring for charity

I’m happy to share a new coloring book put together by the SF Etsy community. Over 40 local artists donated pages to the book to raise funds for 3 charities – SF Safe House, Larkin Street Youth and SF Fire Toys program. I donated the page above and there are some more samples below.

Pre-order for $12 today and thank you for your support.

I hope you have a lovely week!

paint to resist + sale

My sleep is riddled with nightmares these days. When I wake, I shake my head because they’re rooted in reality. I look around and although I am safe, fed and loved; I question its permanence. The rise of hate makes me feel unsafe in my own skin. When I walk down the street I am wary of every person that I pass, reluctant to speak to strangers in a way that I’ve never been before. I feel worn down and so very tired. Unable to escape into my dreams, I take solace in my work.

Because I will never allow their hate and my fear to stop me. I will keep creating and sharing love. I will never stop resisting in every word, painting and act of kindness.

To paint is to resist.

Keep creating, stay committed, stay fierce!

We will get through this with love.

write to resist

When I design these posters, I take many things into account. I enjoy drawing cute characters who have a place in the world without being objects of desire. I focus on their activities as well as their functional design. Here she has her hair tied back with a pencil tucked into it. Her back is curved, her head and gaze is focused on the typewriter keys and the page in front of her. She is wearing comfortable clothing without shoes, as most writers I know work from home. All of these components come together to convey her determination and dedication to her craft, to her cause.

To write is to resist. Download this and all the free resistance art here.

Keep writing, stay loud, stay fierce!

We will get through this with love.

I feel beaten down and overwhelmed by the current political climate. But I’m determined to dig myself out – by sharing a story of love.

I welcome you to follow a girl and her journey to join the resistance. These are free, downloadable coloring pages. My aim is to post 24 this year, and if I can, I will create more. This is how I resist – by telling stories and creating art. I hope this will be a tool to help parents and teachers talk about protesting, fighting the good fight and loving each other. Obviously there is no age limit – anyone can download and color these pages.

I do have two requests – if you color this page, please take a photo and share it in the comments. I’d love to see it!

Second, I want your suggestions. Who will this girl meet? What adventures will she have on her path to her first protest? I have my own ideas but I want to hear from you – I want this to be open and collaborative.

Thank you, always, for your support. We will get through this with love.

I am inspired by the women choosing to march this Saturday. Due to my upcoming schedule (I will be away for 5 weekends in a row) I am choosing to spend the day with my family. However, I created a poster for free download.

You can grab it in 3 different sizes:

11×14 | 16×20 | 18×24

We will get through this – with love.
