Putting Eggs In Multiple Baskets

I thought I’d try something, because you get 14 days free, Brina And Friend’s Art now has it’s own website. Again, I’m throwing myself into a whole new world of trying to figure out how to get people to my website. Here we go! What a fun adventure life is.

 

Brina’s Art Prints For November and December

 

I’ve been adding new artwork and black and white sketches to my shop almost daily and just recently I started a short term Art Print Printing option. Most of the artwork is downloadable and printable from home, which is brilliant because you don’t have to pay for shipping, but I think it’s nice to offer art prints for those who don’t have a printer at home or just want it a little bit easier.

Black and white sketches, baby birth prints, newborn announcements and my colourful vector art is all included. Enjoy!

Annex Suspended – Making, Building, Selling Mobiles Suspended Art and Wall Hangings

Annex Suspended Mobiles and Suspended Art and Wall Hangings made in Fernie BC Canada

A friend and I recently, about 5 months ago, started making suspended mobiles and wall hangings together. We call it Annex Suspended. I’ve never made mobiles to sell before. It’s a strange thing to enjoy making something, to look beautiful and balanced and imaginative, and to offer that to the world. What you’re offering is a decorative piece of art that, hopefully, someone will connect to like we do.

It’s a tough sell!

But I’m enjoying the challenge. I’m excited to see where this will go and what we will create next. It’s such a fun, creative process and I miss making things with my hands. Plus, my partner Michelle Galway, is a genius with her hands. She can make anything and make it brilliantly.

We started some marketing on Facebook and Instagram. It was good connecting to people we know in town and a few beyond. Then we attended a market at Wapiti Music Festival and it was wonderful seeing reactions and getting feedback. So nice! Better than I expected. Now we’re on Etsy.com selling to the world, or anyone with internet access, and it’s a whole other ball game. I’m always learning and hopefully getting better at this.

I’ve done it. I’ve started something and I can’t go back. You can now purchase a vector file of one of my drawings. It’s editable. Scaleable. Or just plain perfect the way it is. For each vector graphic I offer one black and white print and 3 fun colour combinations. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.

Enjoy, world!

The Traveller On Small Town Social

The Traveller by Brina Schenk - storytelling in 20 pages

I’m going to be telling my story over the next week or so on Small Town Social if anyone is interested in reading it. The Traveller was displayed at Wapiti Music Festival and it will be out again during the Chautauqua festival in Fernie, BC. There are the others who are not in Fernie and/or are not attending the festivals and I want there to be an opportunity for everyone to read it. The layout was done fairly quickly, and professional photos are in my possible future, but the story is still there and I hope you enjoy.

There is also a wonderful article about The Traveller in The Free Press. Read the article here. I should probably grab a copy to send to my mum.

The Traveller Is Getting Ready For Wapiti Music Festival

Last year I deputed Shy Girl at Wapiti Music Festival and this year I’m introducing a whole new story titled The Traveller. It’s a simple 20 page illustrated story with few words. I’m hoping the imagery will be enough to grab people’s attention. I’m know I’m in love with the story and I can’t wait to show it in Annex Park on August 11 and 12th.
