I’ll get right to it…I’m quickly approaching my work anniversary with the Processing Foundation. As of March 2020, it will be two years with this extraordinary organization. I’ve had the pleasure and honor of working with an epic group of artists and educators. While every endeavor has taught me the intricacies of non-profit life and brought on some impostor syndrome, it’s been such an incredible learning experience.

As the Foundation’s program manager, Iā€™m often behind the scenes (helping run social media, writing newsletter, helping keep things running, and supporting projects, just to name a few of the things I do). I wanted to share the #SupportP5 campaign I worked on these past few months as well as highlight the artists who generously donated artwork for the campaign – Maya Man, Cy X, Kate Hollenbach, and Saskie Freeke. This is also the most ambitious fundraising campaign I’ve ever worked on. My hope is that you, yes you, reading this…help spread the word about the campaign. We can use ALL the support and help raising funds to help us continue the work that makes the Processing Foundation such a special place for artists, writers, technologists, creative coders, and educators around the world. Please click here to access our Donorbox page and contribute what you can. If you’re feeling generous, starting at the Objects level ($50+), you will receive artwork. The more you give, the more artwork you will receive! šŸ˜ƒ Quite the win, if you ask me. Check out the gallery of work donated to the campaign below.

Southern Exposure (aka SOEX) is hosting the 2011 Monster Drawing Rally this Friday, February 25!

As I’ve mentioned, I’m such a doodler at heart. Drawing is not only cathartic but an opening to the imagination. Oh, where a line can take you. Now, for as low as $10, you can visit the Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill district and witness many of the Bay Area’s finest draftsmen and women draw their hearts out right in front of a live audience. If you’re not doing anything and want to help SOEX raise much-needed funds to keep their programs and gallery going, you will want to bring yourself and some friends to a night full of drawing and making new friends. You will LOVE it!
