Hey ya'll! Happy Wednesday! While I'm continuing my full-conversion over into a Southern Belle, some of you may know that my roots are more Northern. A diehard Ravens fan, lover of seafood and Old Bay, and not-so-professional apprentice crabber (to my dad) right off of the Chesapeake Bay -- yep, you guessed it, I'm from Maryland.
Recently I was honoured with the opportunity to partner with the Baltimore Love Project as a finalist to design the newest t-shirt for my hometown. Their Lead Artist, Michael Owen, has set out on the path to bring more love into our city by giving its walls awesome graphic murals, and I get to join in on the fun!
Here's where you come in, and I need your help :)
Currently, Baltimore Love Project is running a contest for the newest t-shirt in town, and we are only 10 votes away from first place! I would be so honoured if you would take a moment to vote for my design.
Awesome. So how do I vote? (So glad you asked!)
Please follow THIS LINK to vote. I would be honoured if you'd select #2, my design, featured here in this post. All of the designs can be seen here, but please cast your vote in the poll.
What will winning mean for me?
Especially after winning the Superbowl and feeling connected as a town, winning the competition will give me the incredible opportunity to share my work with a lot of wacky, fun-loving, awesome Baltimoreans and people from everywhere. Not to mention it's a paying gig ;) This is also an initiative that is extremely close to my heart, as I search for ways to utilize my art skills and work to affect positive change in the world.
D'awww. Let's all hug. And vote! ;) Spread the love.
Voting will continue until approximately 11:59pm EST on Sunday, Feb. 24th.

Since I'm sure you'd rather look at pretty pictures than read my ramble, here is a selection of some of my daily art posts from my Instagram (Mirilittlebird). Once I am able to speak about my freelance projects, I'll be sure to post them up!
Thank you so much for reading (or looking!)
