ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Good Dog! Sit, stay, party

Party Animals was Jill Beninato's second project hosted to support A Place To Bark. She invited 20 artists to join her, each to create an original piece of artwork based on the theme, using any medium. She created a zine featuring everyone’s work, along with several fun additions and info about A Place To Bark. The zine is full color, 43 pages printed professionally at lulu.com. Your purchase of Party Animals is tax deductible and 100% of the proceeds go directly to helping the animals at A Place To Bark. So not only do you get a totally cool zine full of Party Animal art, you will have helped a fabulous cause...Order your copy today (and be sure to get a few extras to give as gifts to all the other pet lovers you know).
The original artwork will be auctioned off on ebay on October 15th, 2009. Jill will post additional info about the auction on her blog. A list of the artists whose art will be included in the auction is as follows:
