Artist Spotlight: Ashley Lanni

Art work by Ashley Lanni

I have no idea why I have not mentioned Ashley on the ol blog here before now. Ashley Lanni is a local illustrator and designer here in Jacksonville. Her work is awesome and has such a fun and whimsical approach ya just gotta love it. Her paintings/illustrations have a very relaxing and calming effect. There like little images from a dream. I really dig her work and her style is one of a kind. Ashley has such a fun attitude about her work too. I like how Ashley describes herself on her blog as,”The kind of girl who will draw bunnies hugging while watching The Zombie Diaries”. Ya know that works for me! Check out some of Ashley’s works at her blog link here or in the side bar. Ashley was one of the artists in the recent show at Bogda Gallery, Poprocks & Popart, featuring all 80’s inspired works. If ya missed the show(shame on you) keep an eye out on her blog for some pics. Ashley is pretty good about keeping her blog up to date. Which is a major task in itself…trust me on this.-BG


Drawing For Life Results and Pics!

Via Logan Zawacki’s blog:

“The 13 artists who participated in this year’s event created over 100 5-minute sketches and an average of 4-6 larger pieces. Out of the art created we sold about (23) 5-minute sketches at $5 a piece, (21) $15 pieces, and (5) $50 pieces. We raised right around $680 in Art Sales!!! That’s $56.50 an hour. With the small turnout we had I don’t think we could have asked for better sales. Photos from the event should be posted soon.

If you’d like to help us reach our $3,000 fundraising goal you can simply go to our official Relay for Life team page by clicking HERE and hitting the DONATE TO OUR TEAM button. Or if you’d like to make a donation to a specific artist, you can do so by clicking on their name at the bottom of the screen and that will redirect you to their individual page where you can DONATE.

If you’d like to buy some of the Artwork that was created during the 3rd Annual Drawing for Life Marathon, come out to the First Coast Beaches Relay for Life taking place on April 17th from 1 PM until 6 AM the next day at Jarboe Park in Neptune Beach, FL. Our team “Logan’s Heroes” will have a tent set up and some of the artwork from the drawing marathon will be there for sale with all the proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society. Amazing art for a ridiculous price that helps a great cause…what more could you ask for?!?”
