Art Bazaar opens at Three at the Firebird site on the north side of town. Come find me and get our all new Firebird Six Pack as well as prints and postcards. Afterwards, stick around and watch the bird burn. Hope to see you there!
It’s that time of year again, it is December.
OH-NO Comics is having it’s countdown of the top thirty comics of the year, a new wooden phoenix awaits to be burned in Phoenixville and the holidays are approaching. (Except Hanukkah, that’s already happening)
Have you gotten gifts for all your loved ones yet?
You’re in luck my friend because there is still time to order a special piece of Art from Blueberry Arts this year. There will be two more weeks to get what you need and still get it in time for Christmas Day.
That’s right, the deadline for getting you package shipped to you in time to say Merry Christmas is December 19th at midnight EST. After that, no package will go out until January 4th, 2014.
Don’t forget, that you can help support the Firebird Festival and get some of my artwork at http://blueberryarts.com/store/products/category/fire-2/
30% of each Firebird related merchandise from my shop will go right to the The Phoenixville Firebird Festival fundraiser. You have until the 15th to get your orders in for it to count.
Surprisingly, no one has purchased anything yet, so to encourage your help I am also giving 10% off everything in the store with the coupon code: FIREBIRDFUND
The coupon expires the 15th as well.
Thanks for helping out.
My, my, is it already fall?
Indeed it is and I have been so irregular about getting these emails out to you. Sorry ’bout that.
So, I have some quick updates:
Whiskey Falls is online again and updating six days a week with awesome recolored re-runs at http://www.whiskey-falls.com It can also be viewed over at http://www.gocomics.com/whiskey-falls/ SEVEN days a week for the next whole year (but in black and white). WOW. Oh-no on the other hand is still stuck on the robot butler cartoon. i am eager to change that and we should hopefully get some updates on that soon.
Wow, tomorrow, yes TOMORROW is the Schuylkill River Festival in Pottstown. Come on out and support local artists. I will be there with my usual collection of prints and art and postcards.
FIREBIRD: At one point it looked like we were not going to have the Firebird this year. But just like the mythical phoenix that the bird represents, it has risen from the ashes. The festival is back on and they have an Indiegogo campaign going on to raise the money to put on the show. And I had an idea to help (this should pop up on my site today or tomorrow). I was already planning to offer a Firebird Six Pack since I have six years worth of pictures of the bird. It will come in Postcard, 5×7, 8×10 and have a custom order option of six 8×10 aluminum prints. Now what’s this idea about? Well, once it goes active for sale on my site, I will donate 15% of every sale to the Firebird Indiegogo. How cool is that? Also today or tomorrow last years bird print will also go live. Unfortunately the prints won’t arrive in time for tomorrows festival, but I will be taking custom orders from those interested.
So that’s the scoop. I hope to have a more formal newsletter up for November just in time for you to begin Christmas/Winter Holiday shopping.
See ya next time (hopefully this weekend in Pottstown)

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).
That’s right folks, you have until 5pm EST tonight (12/20) to place your order if you want it by Christmas. Also we have a coupon for 10% off so don’t forget to use CHRISTMAS12 at checkout.

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
