2010 - What does the new year bring ?

Hey RBers!

It’s been a while since an update, and well that is because I’ve been a busy chap, just over a month in the US, first time we’ve seen snow, first white Christmas, first time in New York City, Washington DC, Long Island many things, and many more photos to process (at some stage). More importantly we got to meet up with Steven and Tanya, if you recall from earlier posts Steven is recovering from an extreme stroke, and I’ve been trying to do my bit in raising funds for their foundation through selling art on Redbubble. Well the good news is so far we have raised over $500 for the foundation, but not being satisfied I’ve extended the fundraiser for the entire year of 2010.

So the 2010 for me is about giving, its about creating new art, and organizing …

9 out of 10 aint bad!

Just found out I’m the 9th best selling artist for October! Wow what a blast, and what’s even better is its all raised dollars for the Steven T. Hill Foundation whose new website can be found here Please think of him and his family in your thoughts and prays right now as just today (in the US) he had his latest operation.

In good news, I’ve extended the fundraiser back to January and until next January to maximise the amount that can be donated to the Foundation. Thanks for all the messages of support, and those that bought cards, prints and calendars.

Speaking of calendars I’ve started working on some 2010 Calendars with more hopefully on the way.

Please feel free to spread the word about the fundraise on RB, facebook, or blogs every little…

Wow! 19 Cards just went out the door

I’m super excited, after a bit of a lull, and to be honest, I’ve been so sick and overworked I’ve not had a chance to promote my work recently, I just sold 19 cards all raising money for the Steven T. Hill Foundation!

I’m psyched!

Thanks Mystery Buyer, for buying my work and for helping Steve!

New Website!

So the Steven T. Hill Stroke Foundation has a wicked new website now, to provide everything the blog was doing and more! Check it out. So far through sales on Red Bubble we have raised over $150 dollars. If you haven’t already checked out the site take a look, or flick through some of the earlier journal articles. I’ve really wanted to get some calendars up and ready, but between getting swine flu and just being ridiculously busy at work I haven’t had time yet. But I hope to get some up soon!

Sales for Steve! on Salesday!

Well Wednesday this week has been renamed Salesday, with a great showing of support for the Steven T. Hill Stroke Foundation with over 20 pieces being bought today. I know for a fact one of the generous buyers was D. Dhany from our Sydney office as he was excited about his purchase. It also seems like the 15% off sale has also encouraged buyers to come out, as two Canvas prints have sold, whoo hoo. (Craig does his happy sales dance twice!!).
