It’s been an interesting time to be a self-employed artist during a global pandemic. Different festivals, signings, and conferences I was to participate in have been cancelled, my art show openings have gone virtual, my online shop has taken the center stage completely — but I’m safe and well and enjoying working on my next book while enjoying online offerings like Creative Mornings Virtual events and Cave Day. I hope you are as well!
- I have artwork for sale at Giant Robot’s now virtual-only exhibition: Doggo. Find my work online for sale here: https://www.giantrobot.com/collections/giant-robot-store-doggo-a-dog-themed-art-show/susie-ghahremani
and you can also see one of my paintings come together as a TikTok, where I have been posting pretty often as well, here. Follow me on TikTok @boygirlparty
- Amidst the pandemic, I’ve switched gears to offering more content online for people stuck at home. Every day for 30 days, I drew and posted a Stay-at-Home themed coloring sheet to my Instagram stories. If you missed them, my supporters on Patreon have access to PDF downloads of these sheets!
- My publisher Roost Books is now offering a free download of the Spring chapter of I Love Dirt!: 52 activities for families to cultivate a love of nature. Many activities can be done with limited access to the outdoors.
- Last, but not least, my picture books Little Muir’s Night and She Wanted to be Haunted can now be pre-ordered through your favorite indie bookstore! (Or in the case of Little Muir’s Night, ordered directly from Yosemite!)
Thank you for your support of my artwork during these unusual times, and hope you are safe and healthy and well.
