Prints

I’m bringing lots of new prints to Calgary Expo tables P25-26! 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!

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 tables P25-26 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 P25-26 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!

Signing at Corey Helford Gallery Los Angeles April 21

Who likes mertopsuses? Hmmm or Octomers? Lol I don’t know what you call Ursula, but I do know that I’ll have special prints of her next Saturday at Corey Helford Gallery in LA when I’m there IN PERSON for a meet and greet and print signing from 12-2pm! Whootwhoot! I missed seeing you all during my opening for my solo show SKY but I’ll make it up by being at the gallery Saturday the 21st at 12noon with bells and whistles on!

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!

Thank You ECCC 2018!

A big thank you to Dark Horse Comics for having me for a signing and making these awesome Femina & Fauna posters! Between both Dark Horse and I we totally sold out of copies of Femina at the show, but I made sure to sign every one I could!

My original painting “Albinow Rhinow” found a new home on the first day of the show and turned lots of heads walking by the booth! You can get a print of this fabulous rhino here on my custom print shop now!
