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!
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.
My pandemic hobbies are totally out of control. My poor brain is just wandering from one thing to the next. Besides trying my best not to die, I’ve been occupying myself with all sorts of projects too numerous to post. But here are some examples of print blocks that I have carved. Totally obsessed with natural toned paper.
Ive been meaning to post my some of my creative activities for a while. Where do I begin.
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.
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?
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.
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. 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.
This is my first attempt at block printing on fabric and first attempt at gradients. I dyed some scarves a while back and finally got around to printing. Even though I currently suck at it, I find the process intriguing. #handprinted#textiles#blockprinted#handcarvedstamps
