Shall we join hands for a Hawaii Fundraiser? It’s been heartbreaking watching so many lives disrupted – and ended! This story absolutely broke me.

I can’t do anything to stop climate change. I can’t build back homes. I can’t bring back those who perished. But I can use my art and platform to do a little something along with the art community, and I hope you’ll participate in one of the two ways I talk about in today’s video. THANK YOU in advance for your help!

“Perpetual” fundraising

I plan to keep giving through the sale of this printable; the beneficiary will change, because, sadly we know there’ll be a new hurricane, landslide, flood, earthquake… seems there’s something new once a month, sometimes only a week or days apart.

Each week I’ll be making the donation to whichever situation is in the most dire need at that time. So if you want to help, color the image up again and share it with your online friends so we can keep generating income for those who need it!

If you want to keep giving through this method, you can just repurchase when there’s a cause that touches your heart; 100% of the money goes to the charity, I’m eating the Paypal fees myself, and knowing me, I’ll round up the donation. 🙂

How to Use a Hex Chart class

For quite some time (to be honest, YEARS), new colorists have asked how to use the hex chart. Uhm, I just thought, hey you can see colors near each other so pick some out, right? I’d done a few YT videos using the chart, but I hadn’t done a deep enough dive to help folks. Until now!

This is an inexpensive class, so while the samples are pretty spectacular, please don’t get your hopes inflated! It’s primarily about color, and helping people to see the differences between colors by looking at photos, then a drawing of them. Sometimes that can help show what desaturation IS, and the power it has to change your art. So there are 10 lessons like that; little clips of coloring, some sample color chart tests, but I think it’ll be well worth it for those who want some help with their hex charts!

Thank you!
