Last Spring's Box
last spring’s box was my first go at a box. It contained a hand pressed glass sun catcher with my Arctic tern illustration stamped upon it, locally grown and dried flowers from my friend’s flower farm - Catkin Flowers in Brunswick ME, locally printed vinyl stickers of my illustrations (Arctic tern and Alewife), locally printed print of my ‘Flora of Maine’ poster, and a little amethyst crystal...!
One last word - Sea-Run Fish Stickers...
As an illustrator I try and use my skills to better causes I care deeply for. A major love of mine is River Health. In Maine we have rivers that move entire worlds of water. Dams, pollution and other human activity has significantly damaged out waterways and in the process done great harm to our sea run or migratory fish. Maine has around 11 sea-run fish that make the journey from sea to fresh water (or sometimes the other way around!). They need our help and attention right now more than ever. I have made these vinyl (sad to say but once applied they should be there...forever) stickers of Maine's 11 sea-run fish in efforts to raise awareness to their survival. A portion of the sales are donated to Maine Rivers, an incredible local organization that fights on behalf of Maine's mighty rivers and waterways. Please check them out and consider supporting!
I am currently sold out of most stickers right now -
Dont worry, more stickers are on their way...Check in next week!
