@pandorasparlor is having a giveaway for one of her original black cat drawings!! While I have followed her for a while and love all of her work, her mischievously little kitties have always had a special place in my heart. I love seeing and looking up to another artist that loves cats as much as I do.
In 2nd grade, my mom was walking me home from school and we found a little black cat hidden under some bushes. She was so skinny and looked like she must have gotten away from her mama and the litter, and had been surviving outdoors on her own. So we took her home and named her Shadow. My mom talked to my dad all night until he would let me keep her. Though she never seemed to warm towards human interaction, I'm glad we were able to give her a safe home with lots of love.
Repost @pandorasparlor I want to thank everyone that has followed and supported me here on Instagram so I am giving away this original black cat drawing, 4\" x 4\" matted to fit an 8\" x 10\" frame. If you are the winner, I will set up an etsy listing for $1 so technically this giveaway will cost $1, but that way I can ship through etsy and they have low shipping rates in the US and internationally, which I will pay. To enter the giveaway please like this post AND leave a comment below with your favorite black cat name. 🐱 This will run until midnight tomorrow (Friday) and I will announce the winner on Saturday. Thank you my friends!!

Blackbird Rising is about overcoming negative situations by staying true to your dreams and following your passion. It’s about taking notice of signs and coincidences, messages from the universe which tell you which direction to go.
The song Blackbird followed me last time I exhibited at Holloway gallery, I noted it playing on the stereo as I exited my Uber ride from the airport to the motel. The next morning I woke up to the notes of Blackbird being strummed on an acoustic guitar on tv in the motel room, I began singing quietly along. I got up and checked out of the motel and wandered down towards the beach to explore, I stumbled upon a small street market and as I strolled through the stalls familiar notes drifted towards me. I followed the music to a group of young buskers playing Blackbird.
After suffering a decade of physical and verbal abuse which is finally coming to an end, my wings had been broken and I am learning once again how to fly with a little help from my friends 💜
Megacon this week! I’ll be posting the floor map & exclusive pin info in the next day or so. WIP of “Orange Blossoms” my purrrty collaboration painting with Jasmine Becket-Griffith 😺❤️ #Repost @strangeling Sneak peek of my MegaCon debuting "Orange Blossoms" painting with fellow artist Carrie Hawks @tigerpixieart ! This original painting (and prints, canvases & free giveaway pins!) will debut THIS WEEK at MegaCon Orlando (May 24-27th, I'll be there every day) at the Orange County Convention Center. I'll be at booth 1048 (a big 30 foot booth all for me!) and Carrie will be there too at booth 8FA so you can get your print signed by BOTH of us if you come in person ;) We'll also have them up at our websites after the event.

Email me at JasmineToad@aol.com with the subject line ORANGE BLOSSOMS ORIGINAL. We'll be taking down collector names in the order in which they are received.
