Le Petit Elefant by Genevieve Santos

THANKS for making the first IG art sale a SUCCESS!!

Sale, IllustrationsgenevieveComment

Ahhh!! Thank you to everyone who followed along the Original Art Sale on

Instagram

. this past Wednesday. It was so much fun! I painted 8 illustrations on the spot, from 1-3pm. I can't get over how quick everyone was. I hope it wasn't too distracting from work ;). I also took some videos of my process, a very tricky task while you draw. My hands were shaking from the adrenaline and nervousness, my mind spun trying to figure out the next illustration. I've been busy with filling Valentine's Day orders and custom work so although stressful, the thrill and joy of drawing whatever I wanted was so gratifying and a necessary pause from the hustle. I'll be hosting another one soon FOR SURE.

Have a look at some of the illustrations I painted--

And here's a

The

Supahcute Kaiju Show

opening at

Leanna Lin's Wonderland

was THE BEST EVER! Ahhh so many wonderful artists were in attendance, including Michelle Romo of Crowded Teeth, Patty & Jason of Fat Rabbit Farm, Nellie Le of Quiet Tiger, and the paper cut-out extraordinaire Jared Andrew Schorr. I officially became art collector that night by purchasing my very first original, Jared's "Night Swimming."

A big thank you to everyone who came by and supported the show. If you haven't seen it yet, you absolutely MUST. It's seriously so good. And my two pieces are still there & available if you're looking to bring a couple adorable kaijus to your home :).
