Here's what a couple of Art Bundle students had to say:


I thoroughly enjoyed the Art Bundle for Good and will purchase it again in a heartbeat! It was full of so many incredible art lessons and the value was exceptional. Can't recommend it highly enough! ~ Susan K. 

I signed up for the Art Bundle for Good and was immediately exposed to a lot of courses I would never have heard about otherwise. I was so taken with a couple of the instructors that I signed on for additional courses after I participated in the Bundle for Good! ~ Kelly R.

The best part is that 25% of the profits are going to support Courageous Kitchen, a Bangkok based charity helping refugees. The Art Bundle for Good is a great opportunity to get 100 top art learning resources from many of the biggest names in the industry and do some good at the same time!

Three stencils I just had to design!

Hello!

You may have the blueprint that was part of my private collection for StencilClub back in January 2015 but a little bit ago I decided it was past time for a hand-drawn, old-school blueprint stencil. 

I get excited when I find vintage blueprints to use in my art and I imagine you do too. Now, you can make your own and you are free to use non-traditional colors, or not!



Tile Maze

It is easy to see stencils in actual tiles. I love how the maze captures 4 flowers and the center cross in my Tile Maze Stencil. It stencils well with a single or with blended colors.




Alligator Bark

My assistant named this next stencil Alligator Bark, but honestly, the design is simply me making marks. In addition to using partial elements, I envision flipping this stencil around to focus the spray of pattern in this stencil.





Art Bundle for Good Giveaway begins at Noon!
