GIVEAWAY!

As some of you know, we've been working to solve the problem CafePress threw in our laps the other day when they announced they'd no longer be producing CDs--our biggest seller!

SO....Joseph's been doing some prototypes to see if we can do it ourselves (we CAN!), and because we've changed something here or there on the cover or on how the files are organized since then, we're offering these prototypes as giveaways!

Here's the first offering...my first in the Elements of Landscape series, Painting and Drawing Trees, with a slideshow, PDFs, jpegs, and other goodies.



Make a comment here on the blog, and we'll pick the winner next Monday!  Free shipping, too.  (I'm putting this on my Fine Arts gallery blog too, but we'll compile names--we won't miss you if you sign up one place or another!)

Of course this and all the other CDs are available on my website, right now.  After all these years, I'll be closing my CafePress store at the end of July, but the CDs will be available right here: http://www.cathyjohnson.info/cds.html

Who needs Cafe Press??

Hi Kate, I enjoy your work, was inspired by your Sierra sketching book, just finished reading Artists Journal cover to cover in one evening, and download my favorite tips from you to my phone for quick n easy reference when I'm out sketching.

  62. I would be thrilled to get one of your CDs. I am a newbie and have a couple of your books to learn from. The CD would be like icing on the cake - my birthday cake from Thursday. Yup, had another one, and your CDwould be a great gift!

  64. I tried to post from work on 7/8 but it must have been a no-go. Hopefully I may be included in the drawing due to the glitch. I love trees and any tips on portraying them would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  65. If your DVDs are anything like your books (I own most of them too) then I would enjoy the DVDs as well. Plus my friends still call me a "tree hugger"...like that's a bad thing! I use my books for reference and love them all! Thank you for sharing your talent with us!
