Opportunity Scribbles

I’m very grateful for the support of all my friends and fans who love my work and I’d like to extend an opportunity to you.  Anyone who sends a new client my way will receive a 10% thank you fee for the sale of any painting or commission of custom work.  All projects start at $1500 and increase from there based on size and intricacy of design.  So that means a minimum of $150 to you for babbling about Bike Scribbles.  Just tell your friends to mention that you sent them!  Thank you for spreading the Scribble love!

I’ve been working with some new forms to consider:

Yoga Scribble

Dance Scribble

 

Martial Arts Art

And… We’re Doing it Again!

Another Interbike in Vegas, another Bike Scribble to raffle off to a lucky attendee!  Theme and details to follow…

Where: End of aisle 30,000 – Urban Lounge/Pub

This year’s title:  “Strip Gear”

Size: 4′ x 4′ – easier to pack!  (we’ll work out the shipping)

Raffle tix: $5 – get a sticker  – $10 get a Bike Scribble poster!

Benefits: 100% of proceeds to Kids on Bikes and 1,000 Bikes for Kids

Why:  Because every childhood should have a bike in it!

And for you pragmatists out there: A child who grows up riding a bike is more likely to BUY a bike when they grow up.

Come on down to the Urban Lounge and show us the love!  Thank you!

Bike Scribbling LIVE at Interbike!

Last year this Bikechik went to Interbike to see what she could see.  Darn near made my head spin clean off!  There, primarily, in a journalistic capacity I was a total NEWB, an Interbike virgin!  By the time I’d gotten the lay of the land it was time to go home.  Well this year I am returning a veteran (maybe that’s over-stating).  I’m armed and dangerous and bringing the Bike Scribbles along for the ride!  I’ll be painting a Bike Scribble on canvas LIVE in the Urban Legend Lounge (they’ll have beer there!) and raffling it off to benefit Kids on Bikes, Bikes For Kids Foundation and 1,000 Bikes Foundation.  Raffle tix are two bucks ($2.00 US) each.

Every $200 donated provides a deserving child with a bike, helmet, lock and school based curriculum including bike safety education.

You’ll even get a sticker like this for your trouble:

Such a deal!
