Wow, has it really been since Christmas. Sorry about that folks. 2013 has been a real busy year for me so far, but June will kickoff the new year for Blueberry Arts.
We start our craft show season this month with the fantastic “Canal Days Festival” at the Schuylkill Canal Park Lock 60. We will be stocking up on all of our current prints and postcards as well as have some new ones that will be available to purchase the first week in July here on the site but will be ready for Canal Fest patrons on June 30th.
I also just got back from a 300+ mile bike trip from Pittsburgh to near DC and have taken 568 photos. I am going to weed those down to my favorite and most creative shots and place them up here for you all to see, so be sure to keep coming back and checking out the blog and galleries to see those images.
On the comics front, a small burst of all new OH-NO Comics has appeared from mid April up to just last week. Be sure to check those out if you haven’t already. The comics are on summer vacation right now to give me time to make some more, as well as to give me a chance to focus on the summer season of Blueberry Arts and any craft shows and comics conventions that I will be attending.
That’s all for now. Be sure to subscribe to the blog/news via RSS, subscribe to our newsletter (thats going to begin regular updates again soon) and be sure to Like us on Facebook (another good way to keep up to date on BBA).

On a foggy morning I grabbed my camera and went to work. By the time I took lunch the fog had lifted and was replaced with an overcast day. I spent my lunch hour taking pictures along the inner line between the Visitor Center and the Arch at Valley Forge. Continue reading

This weekend is,
That’s right folks, it’s Firebird time again. No offense to the other awesome shows I do, but this one is my favorite and it’s looking to be bigger and better than ever this year. The festival runs from 4pm to whenever the bird has stopped burning, usually 11ish. I will be there as always to sell my art. I hope to see you all at the show too!
Like every show I do, I like to premier a new print. But this year, I have two new prints!
The first of these prints is MOUNTAIN CHAPEL an image I had in my gallery for a while now but stood out to me as an image that would make a good print. The subject is the Dahlgren Chapel in Turner’s Gap Maryland. I saw this chapel in the early morning while hiking with my brother along the Appalachian Trail. Am I the only crazy person who takes a full size SLR camera backpacking?
The second print is THE PHOENIX. This is a print of this yearsFirebird! This is the first time I will have a photograph of the current years bird available as a print at the show. Something else I did different this year is to have it as a black and white print. And another first is that it is my first digital black and white available as a print. Normally I do not do digital B&W, but this image looked best as a black and white so I am giving it a go.
I have had two 5×7′s and two 8×10′s printed on the same awesome metallic pearl paper I use for my color images. If there are leftovers of either image after the show, I will post them for sale here on Monday. If you can’t wait that long or are worried that it will sell out before you can grab one, you can always place a special order which I am accepting now. Any special order received before Monday will get to you in time for Christmas.
Also, lets not forget the print of last years bird, EMBERS GLOW, that I will also have on hand at the show. I have an order placed for postcards with my fingers crossed that they will get here by Friday.
So, remember to come out and see the coolest bonfire around as Phoenixville burns it’s ninth Firebird!
That’s right folks the site is back up and running and better than ever. New galleries, new shop and a new look. So come on over to check out the redesign and let me know what you think. While you are here don’t forget about getting your loved ones a Christmas/Holiday gift. Art makes a great gift! And if you use the coupon code: CHRISTMAS12 at checkout you can save 10% too! (sale ends December 25th)
Just remember that if you want your order to arrive by Christmas, you need to order it by 5PM EST on December 20th for Priority Mail and Express Mail (Friday is the last day I can ship before the USPS cut off dates.) Due to the extra time needed for Special Orders, you will only have until December 10th to be guaranteed delivery by Christmas.
Yup, some more site updates. For a very short time the store and gallery will disappear from the site and return better than ever. But in the meantime hang in there. If you want to see my images, visit my Flickr page and I still have some items in my Etsy shop. I hope to have the work completed and everything fully operational by Friday afternoon. So, please pardon our dust.
Be back soon!
I am redesigning the website a little bit before the fall/winter festivals kick into gear. So please bear with me. Redesigning a live site can be a tad hard, so watch out for random parts of the site not working or text that can’t be read. Also the shop is still working for right now if you want to still buy something.
Well, my project unfortunately failed. Thanks to all of you who helped by either spreading the word or by making a pledge.
