Local Artist, Hand-Drawn Prints, and a Custom Portrait Giveaway!

Monster GiveawayIt’s giveaway time!

I am SUPER excited about this post. I’ve done several giveaways here on my blog, but this is the first I’ve paired up with a local artist to give away a custom piece of art work! Keep reading to find out how you could win a hand-drawn custom portrait of you and your plus one.

A few weeks ago, my friend Morgan introduced her friend Kelly Hewitt and I via email, and thought we might like to collaborate for a blog post. When Kelly told me a bit more about her, her business, and offered a fun and completely different type of giveaway I was pumped! Kelly is a skilled artist in Tampa, Florida with a very unique style. She has recently launched and online store and Etsy shop for her creative business, Melodious Monster, and I thought many of my readers would enjoy learning about her.

Kelly’s artistic style, in my opinion, is edgy, simple yet abstract, unique, and witty with a bit of dry sense of humor tied in. Her sketches are unlike anything I’ve seen and I just love it! She was kind enough to send me a few pieces of my own and I couldn’t wait to share them with you!

These prints will be perfect in my kitchen and in my craft room. I love the “Bake it till you make it” one!

These cards are perfection. I can’t wait to send them to two lucky friends!
And these will be fabulous in my office (Maybe. My husband has already threatened to steal the chocolate one twice.).
IMG_6767 How cute is that birch tag? Kelly can make those to order, and they’re great for ornaments, gift tags, dressing up a package, or just something fun to add to your art collection.
And if you know someone getting married, this is a fun and completely original gift!

I love to paint and draw myself, so I am all about supporting other local artists and crafters. It’s pretty rare to find someone who is so imaginative and creative on paper these days!

So, want to win a one-of-a-kind piece of art work? Since it’s Valentine’s week and everyone is feeling extra lovey, we’ve decided to give away a custom, hand-drawn couples portrait. If you win, you can see yourself, character-style, next to your husband, wife, best friend, child, parent, pet … whoever you choose! (If you want a family portrait, Kelly will be more than happy to add additional people for a slight charge.)

Seriously … how cute would this family portrait be hanging in your hallway?

    I LOVE Kelly’s artwork! I would most definitely have my handsome manfriend with me!

    I would love one of my fiancé who is in the navy (I love the monsters in uniform. So much!) and I for our first home:)
