Puppies and Kittens Oh My!

If you love animals you will love seeing these photos. I was looking for reference photos for the new Bonesy & Cuddles comic strip I am working on and … some of these are really adorable.

Kitten War! May The Cutest Kitten Win!

I am in the market for an Abyssinian cat if anyone has any information about them. I’ve done some research on them but would be interested to talk to other owners about temperament, etc since I have a four year old.

Thanks and enjoy the pics! :)

[Art Call] Artistamp Album Pages

Have a ton of older artistamps you want to use? Have new designs you want to show off? Love getting books in the mail?

This call is for whole album pages for an album. Everyone makes a page, I bind and embellish the book and you get a book back with everyone’s pages in it!

Everyone needs to make 20 pages. Pages are to be 4.25″ inches wide by 5.5″ inches tall; half a standard (8.5×11) sheet of paper, you can fit two per page). Please leave half an inch at the left for binding; total art space is 3.75″ x 5.5″. If you do not leave the half inch on the left side blank, I cannot bind your page into the album.

The cutoff for groups is 20 people (19 including me). If we get a good response there will be more than one group. I will be posting documentation and the album online after the albums have been mailed back.

Each album will be 20 pages and, due to the size of the album, binding and shipping will be $10.00 so you will need to include $10 in with your submission. You can also use PayPal for this and send it to renmeleon@earthlink.net if it makes it any easier. If we have less than 20 people the book will be sized accordingly and I will adjust the binding/shipping cost.

Make your own page, use your favorite quotes, add your own embellishments to the page, etc. Any theme! You can show off your issuing authority if you have a ficticious land or character. Use pockets, beads, wire, ribbon, stamps, artistamps, anything you want. If you use glitter PLEASE make sure it is glued down and warn me ahead of time. LOL Make this fun! As long as you leave half an inch at the left side for binding you can do anything you want. Please keep in mind that pages need to be relatively flat though since they are being bound into a book.

Signup ends November 15th. Signup by emailing me at renmeleon@gmail.com with “Artistamp Album Call” in the subject line. I will post a list of participants here and on my website’s forums. If you have questions, please reply to this post here or email me.

Mail me your finished pages by November 25th. Your submissions must be postmakred no later than Nov 25th for me to be able to get them back to everyone in a timely manner due to the Christmas season coming up. Mail all pages to me at this address:

Time to play!

Getty & Italy

Getty museum is in the news over a reported scandal.

A man living in Italy discovered an ancient Roman villa practically in his own backyard using Google Earth.

WOOT The site is L I V E!! *happy dance*

Ok, that title was pretty self-explanatory. LOL

After 20 years of being in business freelance, and four years of planning and dreaming, Renmeleon.com finally went live. *collapses* hehe I am so excited about all the stuff we are doing I cannot begin to tell you. Ok, I’ll try. :)

Breast cancer awareness jewelry and accessories *whispers…like pocket mirrors*, framed prints, two local Starbuck’s are going to be displaying my art… *takes a deep breath* …artists from all over the world donating artwork for the Art4NewOrleans effort, holiday stuff holiday stuff holiday stuff, new designs galore! hehe There is SO much going on and so many new opportunities.

Since I lost my printer (long story, needless to say I no longer support Xerox) I have been revamping my old designs for black & white. I have always enjoyed doing straight pen & ink, I love the high contrast. I will be posting some of my newest designs this week and I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

I’ll post more as soon as things settle a little. Ha! Actually I hope it doesn’t. hehe Look to Renmeleon.com though for more art, more ideas, and…well, just more!
