Party Animals - 2009

I am so excited to announce that the Party Animals Project benefiting A Place to Bark is now available for purchase as a beautiful bound book.

"Party Animals features the artwork of 21 different artists from across the country. The proceeds from the sale of this book will directly benefit the animals at A Place To Bark animal rescue. All work was donated by the participating artists and the original pieces will be auctioned off on Ebay in the Fall of 2009. This 43 page, full color book includes reproduced artwork from each artist, information about A Place To Bark animal Rescue, How To's, ways to get involved with helping animals, a dog treat recipe and much more!"

Please click here to preview and purchase your copy today for only $20.

I am honored to be a part of this wonderful collaboration.

The piece I created for the project is called "Party Pugs". The original collage will be auctioned off in the Fall on Ebay and all proceeds will go to Bernie Berlin's Rescue and Shelter, A Place to Bark.

The Bark Magazine has just blogged about the project. Please read more here. :)

Several of the artists have also posted about their beautiful submissions. I am inspired by all of the creativity. Here are just a few from Manon, Jill, Linda and Rebecca.

I will post more details about the auctions that begin Oct. 15th 2009 for the originals in the coming months.

Update: Craft for Health Drawing Winner:
