I’m bringing lots of new prints to Calgary Expo table AA5300! I’ll have prints of “Bonnie Bonnet” here and “Sunkisses” and “Polina” from my new solo exhibition. I’m even bringing a few big 16×20″ size prints! But I’ll only have 1ea image of those ones, so come see me early in the show for the most selection! If you’re not coming to Calgary Expo, you can order these 3 lasses online here.

 

 

Unleash the bees! I’m bringing petite bee prints too, along with a new hand-embellished Calgary exclusive limited edition release of my Spirited Away print.

I’ll also have prints that are new to Calgary like The Last Unicorn, Foxy Lady, Marlena and more! Most of my prints are made and ship from the USA so this is a super time to add prints to your collection from my tables at the expo and save on shipping!

I’m bringing a very few printed vintage plates to Calgary Expo! Each one is one-of-a-kind and I only have 4 for the show, so come visit my table AA5300 early before they all find homes!

I’m bringing my new Liveheroes clothing collection pieces to Calgary Expo! They’re all hand-made in Poland with lots of love, and the hoodies and sweaters are so soft inside- they’re amazing! Since they’re all hand-made though, I only have 1-2 each design and size, so come to my table AA5300 early in the show before they’re all gone!

Remember these?? I’m bringing some handbags to Calgary! There will be new designs too, and different sizes for purses, handbags and totes! Quantities are super limited though, so if you fall in love with one, don’t wait to collect yours! And if you can’t make it to the show, you can subscribe to my newsletter here for future online release info.

Check it out guys! I made new hard enamel pins and I’m bringing some to Calgary Expo! You can collect a new glittery fuzzy Bee, or new glitter Rainbuns pin! I’ll also have new folding paper fans like these fuzzy Rainbow Bee and The Last Unicorn ones!

And Books! You’ll be able to pick up copies of my Femina & Fauna Version 2.0 artbook for the first time at Calgary Expo, along with my Pop Manga Coloring Book. I’m happy to sign em for ya too, just ask!

Sky Exhibition Opens Tonight

Today is the day!  My soloshow “Sky” opens at 7pm tonight Corey Helford Gallery in  Los Angeles! It took me over a year to create this collection of paintings and drawings. This is my most diverse showing to date. This exhibition represents who I am as a person and as an artist. I want my art to be my voice of unity and acceptance. I believe we all deserve to be treated equally regardless of our skin tone, our sexuality, where we come from or our shape. Whether you have pale skin, vitiligo, freckles or curves, I hope to empower people and to show the world that we should love each other’s uniqueness!

This show is a culmination of many sleepless nights, and both tears and joy, so I can’t wait for you to see it! I’ve poured my heart and soul into this art! If you can’t make it to the opening don’t fret! You can email sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com to inquire available originals from my show.

I wish you all the love in my heart! Sending my love and squishes from here in Chicago! You can check out my solo show video on YouTube Here!

Happy New Year! A look back at 2017

Here’s MY personal Best Nine of 2017. 🎉 This year has been a crazy, unexpected whirlwind! Especially for me creatively. So I wanted to look back and choose 9 pics from my feed that I think made a mark on me as an artist. 🖌 It’s important to look back to see how we grow and change and take notes for the future. This year I expressed many sides of my personality, the fun side with my fuzzbutt bees, 🐝 the environmental side with the 3 eyed Ajna, 🌍 the ridiculous side with my zombees. 💀 I opened up in ways I hadn’t before, like sharing my fan fiction art through Patreon (Bethyl forever!), deciding to channel love over hate with my new @coreyhelfordgallery show “Sky”. I pushed myself technically with “La Madre” one of my biggest most intricate paintings to date, I painted a boy, “Dorian Grey” mixing rainbows and literature, 🌈📖 I spent a year completing my rainbow fox, and I brought my love of doll furniture together with my love of custom toys! I published my first ever online comic “Davinchibi” and launched my Etsy with the help of Asami! Tasha, my amazing coordinator knocked it out of the Park this year! She helped me build my Patreon and so much more. 🙌 I did things this year that I hadn’t done before, traveled more than ever and took creative risks. It hasn’t been an easy year, I think many can relate.😌 This year forced me to push myself to work harder and deal with tragedies. 2017 almost felt apocalyptic. Hate surfaced in ways I didn’t expect and it hurt my heart so gravely that I changed my entire direction for my solo show for Corey Helford next year. I decided to take a stand for my beliefs that ALL humans are equal.💖 I want my art to inspire and heal, to bring people together, to spread love. I hope that I’ve brought smiles to your faces and been there through the hard times. My new motto is “Love over Hate”.💞 I have some big plans for next year, I talk about them here on my new Huffington Post interview. You can read it here!  Now that the year is ending it’s time to look forward to what we can accomplish in 2018! 😊 Stay strong and let your freak flag fly my lovelies!! I can’t thank you enough for all your likes and comments and support. You make me so happy! 😁 I want to wish you the Happiest New Years ever! Let’s celebrate with love! Big hugs and all my best!
