Kim's Big Head in San Fran

My billboard in Berkley in San Francisco rises above the cash advance store. This was taken this past weekend, and it was scheduled to come down this week, so I'm not sure if it's still there. My fiance got an e-mail from the gallery saying that the smaller version of his billboard sold at the San Francisco show. Yay! And then the gallery owner went on to say that he's misplaced the smaller version of my billboard. And unlike the other artists, who painted acrylic onto donated vinyl, I painted mine in oil on canvas. Hopefully he'll find it. Or someone's just purchased a painting....

New blogs and Australian magazines

I'm still recovering from jet lag, but thought I'd better post something. I found some great art supplies in Australia -- a 1978 Australia Post magazine, a 1964 Tasmanian agriculture magazine, a 1959 Australian Electronics magazine, and a 1972 Australian Woman's World. Also some rusted bits of metal from this great hardware/second hand store. I'm hoping to make some more altered art pieces for my kimbagwill etsy shop.

This great blog Cuteable featured my Dangerous Baths notecard, in a shark/fish themed post.

Onthedotcreations, a fabulous blog featuring only polka dot items, included my cow birthday card in a post, too.

Also, a co-worker stopped by my desk this morning and said she was in San Francisco this weekend, saw my billboard, and took a photo of it. Maybe I'll be able to post it later this week. Not sure how much time I'm going to have since I have to get ready for a weekend trip to Illinois next weekend, and I still have to create some new art because the Mincing Mockingbird and I were contacted by Kelly Whitmer, who owns a very cool shop called regeneration in Los Angeles who wants us to do a joint show at her shop. She features a lot of very cool recycled, and eco-friendly art and household items.
