Jungle



I hate shopping at those huge chain stores. I can never find anything and I get lost. It's like a jungle!

In other news I found out my cards will be out in select Target test stores from August 7 to Sept 2. They can't tell me which stores are test stores so if anyone finds a store carrying my cards let me know! If my cards do well they will go in to the everyday line. I may also get to make more cards for them. That would be exciting.

In related news I updated my website. Several of the images from my cards are on there. Everyone should check it out. cbeckwith.com

So glad you commented on my site, so I could come over to visit your site. What a treat! Great illos. What should I look for in the Calif. Target stores? I'll try to keep my eyes open Aug and Sept.

I choose to stay out of the jungle during sales... too dangerous.

Very effective 'portrait' piece... Then again, I'm from a town that has lots of drive-bys... much gang violence... so I relate to the frustration of the senseless violence, where innocents take the brunt of the lousy aims.

This is a delightful image...it makes it seem as if it's perfectly natural to have jungle animals and foliage throughout the department store! I love how calmly the ladies stroll through the aisles, even as the elephant looks like he's going to help himself to something from a catr! The colors are beautiful...I love the balance of red, blue, and green throughout. Congrats on your cards! Good luck:>

Wow! What a brilliant mind and a delightful image. Unique and imaginative. I'm so glad I got to see. I'm going to go visit your website now.

christy, you've got this sense of how animals and humans connect that is touching, whimiscal, authentic. you're very talented, and i would guess your relationship with target will prosper.

ps when i checked out your website, some of the artwork seemed cropped at the top (eg heads missing). fyi--it could of course be because of my computer, not your website.
