It's Showtime Synergy!

...and what's with weird awkward poses from the 80's anyhow!?

PSA: Donations now accepted!

In order to pay organizational taxes, publish books, afford a booth at comic-con, and host art receptions, there are normal operating costs that are often difficult to absorb within the organization.  In order to help alleviate these financial burdens, we have set up a Donation button through Paypal, so GDG can continue to exist and create kick ass art!

We realize these are tough financial times, but even $1, $5, or $10 would help so greatly.  Thank you so much, and thank you for being a patron of the arts!

2009 Pasadena Chalk Festival- wrap up!

A big shout-out to our wonderful and talented members who braved the misting rain Saturday and the blazing sun this weekend at the 2009 Pasadena Chalk Festival to help create GDG's entry, "The Queen of Tarts!"

(The piece is a bit of promotion for our new GDG Playing Cards (details to follow) and our third book, which will be dessert themed)

We didn't win first, but we had an amazing time being filmed for National Geographic's NGWow documentary series, and we're really proud of our piece- it looked really great!

A huge congratulations to Animation Alley's winners, The Society of Children's Writers & illustrators. They had a great entry!  Also, a big thanks to all else who participated in the festival- the Chalk Festival works hard to promote public art and the Lightbringer project, which helps raise funds for children in the arts.

Also, a big kudos to Nicole Filiatrault and Anne Walker, who donated paintings of Gigi for the Festival's silent auction.
