Woohoo, check it out! Another free coloring project for you to download! I had a ridiculous amount of fun creating these, and they've inspired a whole lot of other ideas currently in the works. Print them out, color them up, put them together, and take pics so I can see! <3 <3 <3

Also there are some cute real cat pics in this post, so don't miss those!

If you like these projects, please consider becoming a patron - $1 or $2 a month makes a huge difference to me on my teensy artist's income! And/or - you can also support my work just by sharing my posts with your friends so I can get my work in front of more people. Thanks so much!

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A photo of two uncolored paper cat sculptures on a round wood-patterned tabletop; Princeton files full of magazines are visible in the background. The cats are made of white cardstock, detailed with black lines. A zig-zagging pattern creates a stylized tabby cat effect for the paper cats' coats. The cats are meant to be colored in and then assembled.]

Woo-hoo, art for sale! I'm offering this one for $55 (includes free shipping); $10/month patrons get an additional 10% off that. It'll cost more when I finally get around to posting it in the Etsy shop I still haven't managed to set up, but if you buy it now, you save me the trouble of doing that, which is super awesome as far as I'm concerned. Speak up if you want to grab this one! It's ink & watercolor, done from a photo I took of northern pitcher plants up in the #Adirondacks last year.

I finally posted this coloring project to Patreon - download it for FREE and you or your kids can have some fun coloring this weekend! Please share widely! <3

If you like stuff like this, becoming a patron for $1 or $2 a month goes a long way towards helping me continue making it for you. And if you can't give financial support, simply sharing my work here on Facebook is another really great way to give my art a boost! Thanks in advance for being awesome. :-D

Have friends with kids, or who work with kids? Tag a friend/parent/teacher! <3

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Two side-by-side images of a paper great horned owl coloring sculpture. The one on the left is uncolored, and there is an aloe plant in the background. The one on the right has feathers colored in with red, brown, and orange markers; the eyes are colored in yellow. The bottom of a bookcase is dimly visible in the background.]

New patrons, new business card, yippee! I'm super proud of these cards - I think they're really cute! And I'm deeply humbled that a bunch of you are helping me reach my goals on Patreon. More about that in the post below, and a request for input!

My graphics software is now officially paid for, thanks to my patrons. This is a HUGE load off my mind, as funds are going to get a lot tighter for me in the coming months. Just a little more to go and my monthly art supplies will be fully funded - can you help me get there so I can keep making art for you? Then I can start digging in to bigger projects...check out the link below.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A photo of three copies of a business card. On the right the front side is visible on two cards stacked one above the other. On the left is the back side of one card. The front of the card shows ink and watercolor art of two owls swooping towards a leafy green area with one bright purple flower. The closer owl clutches a skateboard with red wheels in his talons. The sky is a rich violet blue higher up, fading to a warm yellow closer to the ground. There are three yellow stars in the sky. The text reads: "Akire Bubar, Illustration & Design, akirebubar.com, artwork - commissions - prints - notecards - comics & more!, 215.915.6608, akirebubar@gmail.com". Below all the text are the logos for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, G+, LinkedIn, and Tumblr. The back of the card shows a woman in a pink shirt and purple pants juggling chainsaws while balancing a basket of feral kittens on her head and lighting fireworks with her toes. One of the kittens in the basket is attempting to bat at one of the chainsaws. Another kitten says "mew?" inquisitively. Another of the chainsaws says, "RRRRRRRRRR!!!" There is a small wide-eyed orange tabby kitten on the ground by the woman's feet, and another white and brown kitten climbing the woman's leg, claws extended and ears back. There is a speech bubble at the top of the card that reads, "Feed the Dream! comics, coloring projects, art updates & more, patreon.com/akirebubar". To the right of the woman's legs is another spiky text bubble that reads, "Make art happen for as little as $1 a month!" The background of this side of the card is a warm golden yellow.]

Wheeee! I just finished the new business card & emailed it to the printer. I can't wait to see it all shiny and DONE! Business cards are so exciting. I should, like, be more social so that I actually hand more of them out. 😜

AND I got a new patron tonight, wahoo! I'm finally out of the single digits! Folks, if you enjoy seeing my art and writing in your G+ feed, please consider becoming a patron. Just the software I use is $52/month - and thanks to folks like you on Patreon, this huge expense is almost all covered. Can you help me get all the way there? After that, I'm looking to fund a bunch of exciting projects (coloring books! comics! notecards!), as well as, you know, funding myself so I can pay my bills once again. Just $1 or $2 a month makes a huge difference to me.

Hugs to all who want them. It's a good night. Now, time to feed the rat and hit the hay. 😊

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A photo of an ink and watercolor illustration. A brown owl soars over grass and a purple flower, clutching a skateboard in his orange toes. A second owl swoops down from higher above. The sky in the background is luminous yellow above the grass, and deeper blue above that. There is a bright orange and red oak leaf on the left side of the drawing, and an ant standing on a blade of grass and watching the owls and the sky on the very far left. On the bottom right is a mouse in red quad rollerskates is fleeing the owls.]

I wasn't online much last week, so let me say now: OMG LOOK! Illustrator Lee Harper tucked this awesome original mock-up for a page of one of the #Woolbur books into my copy of Woolbur Goes to School! I got to tour his studio last week with +SCBWI - Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Eastern PA chapter, and it was a wonderful event. I'm going to have to run out and buy a frame ASAP!

We're here, we're queer, we're...rooting around for our umbrellas and possibly a rowboat? :-P I tip my rainhat to folks who marched and paraded today. Most of you have known this forever, but in the interest of visibility and in honor of pride month: I'm bi/pansexual. Wishing you all love & dry socks on this soggy Pride Day!
