So much going on art wise at this time.....

First the Giveaways, still going slow. Hopefully it will pick up. Target is to get more exposure and more likes for my Facebook art page. Need 400 likes to be able to use more features on the page.

If you haven't yet joined my Valentine's Giveaway, do click and enter to win an A5 print of one of my Red Hot Valentine's. You get to choose your favourite valentine. It would be much appreciated if you could share my giveaway on your page or profile as well.

Secondly I have a new Prompt Me! feature on my page. Pop over and leave me a prompt on what you would like to see drawn. No purchase required, just give me ideas for my future art pieces.

Thirdly, I'm taking part in the February ACEO Challenge where we are given a prompt a day to work on. Hopefully I can complete every single one for the month. It's day 3 today and the prompt is Dragonfly. As the ACEO is small and hard to be too detailed and I didn't want to just fill it up with a single dragonfly, I opted to do a dragonfly tattoo. My originial ACEO and prints for "Dragonfly" are available for purchase. All my ACEOs for the challenge can be found in my challenge album.
Last but not least, I am trying to come up with a series of chinese style art for Chinese New Year which is in just over a week. No pressure really........not! lol

More updates later today.......I hope. :-)

My New Art Blog

A new blog dedicated to my artwork. Hopefully I will find the time to keep this updated with my works in progress, ideas and anything related to my artwork.

Catching up....

I have 2 Valentine's Giveaways to win an A5 print of your choice from one of my Red Hot Valentine series.

I did my research for giveaways on Facebook and found that I can only 'legally' do a giveaway on Facebook if I use one of the apps. I found Giveaway Tabs which was the only one that seemed totally free. The other apps I found required subscription to 'unlock' certain functions/options.

Was all excited and started my first ever giveaway. It turned out to be a huge disappointment. Hardly anyone participated despite active promoting. Through feedback from my friends and 'likers', I discovered that they found the app intrusive and therefore either didn't take part or didn't want to do so initially. After much consideration and advice from friends and fellow artists, I decided to use a different app called Rafflecopter which is less intrusive but offers less unless I pay for a subscription. As I didn't want to let down those who did make the effort to join my first giveaway, I decided to hold a second one concurrently and offer another A5 print. Hopefully this works out alot better. My friends and fellow artists have been really helpful in sharing my giveaway. <3

Here's my 2nd giveaway through Rafflecopter.

If you fancy more chances, here's the 1st giveaway through Giveaway Tabs. This one offers you additional chances if your friend participates in the giveaway through your share.

If you have any comments or feedback about the giveaways or the apps, please do let me know.
