Crunch Time

I completed and printed my three coloring books and got several copies of each printed. I spent close to three hours in Kinko's cutting each individual page out because Kinko's wanted $1.25 per cut which would have added up to a ridiculous amount of money just for the cutting. 

I have also finished my giveaway bags for the show which contain promotional/informational materials from local animal shelters. I have put together about 300 of these for people to take for free during my show.

I don't have pictures of the coloring books as of right now, not do I have pictures of the completed boxes to hold each series of coloring books so I will update with those later.

I am also still working on a short movie/documentary to be shown with my work. Thus far what it presents is footage of two animals shelters which allowed me all access to their shelters, as well as footage of my two dogs Rusty and Ruby who are included in one of the coloring books, and Oona and Chicha who are included in another coloring book. I am still trying to get in contact with the very first animal shelter I visited - Kitty Connection in Medford. This is where the third dog of the coloring book series, Penny, is located because her owner runs the shelter. The movie cuts back and forth between the full cages of an animal shelter to adopted dogs outside and enjoying their freedom.

  1. Everything looks great! Haha, I know I say this all the time, but poor kitties are being left out. Animal shelters have cats, too. I'm just giving you a hard time, though. But seriously, if I were just a random person coming to the show, I would not take one of the give-away bags. Even though there is promotional material for animal shelters, I wouldn't know what to do with the dog treats. Part of me wishes you had two kinds of bags, one for cats and one for dogs.
