UPDATED WITH MORE AWESOME PHOTOS!
What an amazing couple of days we had at Mt. Washington in NH this year! I wouldn’t be lying if I said I had one of the best times ever. I got to hang out with all of my friends from TAPS and Beyond Reality and take part in a crazy investigation in the Princess Room at the hotel too! I’m also very pleased to say that the artwork I created for the event helped raise $1500 for the charity auction. The auction was to held to raise money to benefit the Charles R. Foley Jr. Gilmartin Foundation which helps families when their child has cancer. Charles was an amazing child who was taken from this earth too soon. It’s truly a great cause so please take the time to check it out and donate.
Some exciting news to come out of the event is that Grant Wilson and I brainstormed some ideas for a new series of limited-edition art prints I will making for the TaraNormal Shop. These things are going to be amazing and I can’t wait to start creating them.
It was rough to have to leave this year and get back to reality after such an awesome trip. Thank you again to Holly Griffith for letting Shelley and I be a part of it. She did steal Shelley away from me so they could go look for wild animals leaving me to draw all day with no breaks or fresh air intervals in between huffing Sharpies but hey, I’m not gonna complain.
A big thank you to Christina who got me an anniversary cake in honor of Tara Normal turning 1 year old! She also got me balloons (which are not allowed in Mt. Washington!) and a very nice card. Christina is an awesome supporter of the site and the stories I tell. It was very special to me.
Congratulations to Michelle who won the TAPS Mt. Washington art print I made for the auction. She promised she was going to win this year and she did not disappoint. She already framed it and it looks amazing.
Talented musician Raven Quinn and I signed limited edition art prints created of my drawings of her graphic novel character at the event as well! These prints are now on sale at Raven’s store. I’m really proud of this piece. Make sure to get one before they’re sold out!
We are still reviewing our evidence caught on the investigation so I will save that for another entry. Right now enjoy some pictures from our time at Mt. Washington!
