Hey There Springtime!

I haven’t realized that it’s been so long since I’ve posted. I’ve been hanging with this pandemic life like everyone else. I’ve been staying creative for my sanity and well being. So let’s get to it!

Look at her! Isn’t she beautiful 🤩 My new WoodZilla!
I’ve been having so much fun printing. I’m in absolute love ❤️
Yes I did build me a gourd mini banjo 🪕
…And I built a lyre too!

I’m kinda not looking forward to the end of the pandemic. I love all this stay at home stuff. 🥰

I think we’re kinda caught up? I could bore you with way more block printing 😂 FYI I do accept donations 💰since the fairs and shows are not open yet and the SBA is only giving PPP Loans to criminals 🙄😒 if you want to show support you can make it at my cash app: $TheAfroPuffShop or PayPal,me/Adahma. Donations for $25 or more will send you a block print or some stickers. Please include your mailing address. I’m not savvy enough about NTF art yet.

….Meanwhile in AfroPuff’s WorkShop..

Ive been meaning to post my some of my creative activities for a while. Where do I begin.

  1. Im prepping for my first workshop offerings. Still trying to find the perfect location. I made up all of these clip art sheets and paper cuttings for a PaperCrafting workshop. I wanna do like a tea/wine/create party situation. Might have to ditch the wine if I use a parks and recreation facility tho.
  2. Im prepping my new zines. I know that I should do one at a time but when have I ever done something the easy way?
  3. Im making up as much merch as I possibly can. After my hellish past 6 months with water damage, Im putting the shop back together as soon a humanly possible so that I can get back to full production.
  4. Since I can’t find a damn job(its never been this hard for me to find one before) I decided to just lean the fuck in and explore more avenues that I haven’t utilized yet like building Patreon campaigns. Ive been checking out other artists campaigns and how they structure them. I figure that I can do presales, and such by offering pretty cool incentives like coloring pages and prints…..maybe mini paintings. But in the meantime, Thank God for my Customers for holding me down. ❤

On a sadder note my dear friend Melanie Hadley passed away late last month. A lot of you new her from her company New Hood Order. We would vend a lot together and as the spring and summer seasons near, Im just devastated by the loss. What makes it worse is that I can’t get any info on her passing or final arrangements which is odd as fuck. Her family hasn’t made any announcements and her other friends know about as much as I do. Such a damn shame but you know how families are. She was such a beautiful and kind person, she deserved better. Melanie will be sadly missed. <Sigh> And then there was Nipsey Hu$$le 😦 Dude with all of this grief going on thank God that I splurged on a new beautiful banjolele. My new purple bae. Ya’ll might even be able to get a live show out of me some time soon. 2019-03-28 13.24.32 Isn’t she lovely? She’s such a loud little barker with a very bright sound.

Lastly, Ive been relentlessly seeing All these Damn Angel numbers! Da Hell is going on with that? 10:10, 12:12, 222, 11:11 Lawd Have Mercy!

Well thats it for now. Check out my online shop for all my latest offerings. Here

Peace out Fam. Live Life Well. It goes quicker than you think.

BANJO PRACTICE: No More Auction Block & Poor Boy

I know y’all have been wondering what is up with me, what happened to the art, what’s up with the music talk and all that. The banjo has entered my life, and took up residence. Here’s my progress at a year and half. I tape myself again at Christmas which will be my two year banjo anniversary.

Here’s the link to view No More Auction Block: No More Auction Block
Heres the link to view PoorBoy: Poor Boy

I’ll post the last when it finishes uploading. I hope y’all enjoy. 🙂
