Thought I'd fill you in on a chance to win a piece of art featured in my latest book, Dusty Diablos.  Borders is doing a sweepstakes to promote the book and the winner receives an original piece of art.  Here's the piece.  it is from the Anima Sola (Lonely Soul) chapter of the book, which is a common image you see in Mexico, representing the soul in purgatory.

Here is the version I did for the book
and a detail
it was based on this nicho built into the side of the Catedral in Mexico City
so if you want to win the Anima Sola piece featured in the book this is the skinny:
Pretty much go to the following link...fill it out and you are in the running.  Of course it wouldn't break my heart if you bought the book too!

What do you have to lose?  Free art is free art!

I'm in Australia as well and wasn't sure what to do about the state, do I do what Don did and just put in one of the American ones, but wont that confuse the postal address, Michael please let us "other than Americans" know what to do

cheers Janine Matthews

Darn! At the bottom of the entry page it says that competition is only open to 'legal residents of the United States'....

burgundybelle said...

I've already got both your books and a DVD of an online class. I'm now looking for a "story" to build my own ideas around. Thank you for being so generous with your techniques.

laurie said...

i have your book and am on my way to mexico

Sadly, this contest seems to be for legal US residents and not for legal Canadian residents. I did print the Borders coupon to save the 5 bucks next time I cross the border. The book is not available in Canada until later this year. At least the dollar is at par!

Ooohh, I hope I win!! The Chamsa piece that I bought from you in Puerto Vallarta needs some company! Have been making stuff since your amazing workshop and feeling very inspired and confident thanks to you! Of course, I bought my treasured copy of Dusty Diablos as soon as I returned.
