Where in the World is bethany bARTon?!

Hey! Okay, so you’re probably thinking, "Where the heck have you BEEN bethany? You were posting all this art all the time and I was kind of enjoying it (or enjoying making fun of it) and then you went away! Are you still making art? Did you fall in a well? WE WANT ANSWERS." 

I’m alive! And making art, I promise! I also promise to get back to posting art here very soon! But first, here’s an update on some of the things that have been keeping me busy:

1) I made a picture book! It’s a monster tale called THIS MONSTER NEEDS A HAIRCUT, and the wonderful folks at Penguin published it! You can buy it just about anywhere, so feel free to buy 750 copies!

(If you DO grab a copy, and had a desire to make me smile really really big, you could post a picture of you with my book on my Facebook Fan page!?!!)

2) I also made a monster puppet, and a YouTube video of me being ridiculous with it. If you’re into that sort of thing. 

3) I got to illustrate this really cool middle-grade novel by Todd Hasak-Lowy called 33 Minutes! It’s hilarious & heartbreaking, so my doodles fit right in. The book doesn’t come out until January, so I can’t really show anything… um… so…. here’s the part with my name on it?!

4) DID SOMEONE SAY VODKA?! Well, you should have. Because I’m collaborating with EFFEN Vodka for their Art of Design Event. And if you’ll be in LA August 8th, you should come drink free vodka and see the art I made (it’s pretty flipping cool.) The Art of Design event is basically “Iron Chef” for mixologists— they all compete to make the perfect EFFEN cocktail, and we get to taste their creations! What an amazing celebration, right?! It’s free, but you have to RSVP through my fancy link here.
And here’s a sneak peek at once of the EFFEN art pieces I’ve made… you like? 

5) Okay, I know I’ve mentioned THIS MONSTER NEEDS A HAIRCUT a zillion times already, but I’m about to do it again. If you’re anywhere near Redlands, CA (which is the closest thing to a hometown I’ve got) on August 11th, you should head over to the Frugal Frigate - A Children’s Bookstore at noon! I’ll be there with my Stewart Monster Puppet— signing books, making funny noises and giving away free high fives.

6) In order to keep thehonestyrevolution 90% art-filled, I started a “NEWS” blog. The plan is to use it to post my book readings/signings, events, gallery shows, news, whatever, so that THIS blog can just be chock fulla art (well, after THIS post.) Here’s one of them thar news-type clippings:

7) Speaking of art— did you know that I sell stuff on Etsy? Yeah, I do that sometimes. I never know which pieces to make prints of, so shoot me a message here or on my Facebook Fan Page & tell me which pieces you’d like to see as a print, and I’ll make it happen. BOOM. Like that. Like BOOM.

I think that’s about it. Is there anything you fine folks think I should be doing/making/sharing? Anything you wish I’d draw some pictures on? Stuff I should be involved with? Talk to me! I miss you guys!
