Today I sold the canvas shown above at Spacecraft, took a commission to make a Free Palestine-inspired canvas, talked to a woman about selling my sweatshirts, sold a handful of other little embroidered things, and am going to speak with a woman at an art studio around the corner from my loft about a job. This, in addition to a big job possibility yesterday, and I'm a happy camper!
Keep it coming!
UPDATE: I've already raised over half of what I need. So, thanks to your fine people who have bought my work, thrown jobs my way, and above all, rooted for me! Life is good.
I am Melissa Banigan. I've been many things under the sun, but am currently a single mom raising an amazing kid in Brooklyn, writing novels and short stories, and working on some art (canvases and paper). I also, under the moniker melifera, produce off-the-cusp embroidered clothing and bags.
