Resist & Persist

Resist and She Persisted, defiant word art by Amy Crook

Resist, 6″x4″ ink wash and metallic watercolor on watercolor postcard;
She Persisted, 7″x5″ watercolor and metallic watercolor on paper

I painted these this past week to try out some of my art supplies and I think they both do a good job of what they were meant to do — defy those who wish to shut us up.

Want one of these gorgeous originals?

Normally they’d go for $199 and $249 respectively, but if you make a donation of at least $50 to NAACP, you can keep whichever one you wish.* Help them keep fighting the fight they’ve been fighting for years, email me the receipt, and I’ll get your defiance out to your doorstep.

Both of these have beautiful metallics and sheen to them that’s even more amazing in person. Take them home, donate to a good cause, and make your own resistance that much more beautiful and truthful.

*First come, first snagged. First class shipping is included via letter post, if you want fancier shipping there will be an additional charge for the exact fee.

Weeble April Winchell

Sorry about the silence, I wasn’t feeling well at the end of last week. So, we’re starting the week with a Weeble!

April’s Army is an Etsy Street Team of fans of the site Every month, they take donations and open up the April’s Army Etsy shop with all manner of wacky crafts. This is my first contribution, the incomparable April Winchell (also known as Helen Killer on the site) done up in her most “whimsicle” finery and cartooned as a weeble.

I’m donating 5 cards and the original, because what says “I’m thinking of you” better than weeble fuckery?
