Monday, May 18, 2015

 Today I have a giveaway from Rebecca Chaperon. She contacted me earlier in the year to see if her work was a good fit. I responded with an enthusiastic "YES!" Last year she released Eerie Dearies, an unusual book that offers a carefully crafted and alphabetized selection of twenty-six beautifully illustrated excuses for being absent from school. Her style is just wonderful!


First, here's a little bit more about Rebecca...
'Rebecca Chaperon’s paintings offer imagined landscapes from the bright secret gardens of our psyche to the doomed forests of our misadventures. Each place is painted as a theatrical stage where various protagonists bravely live out mysterious vignettes. These paintings present surreal versions of the world, places that waver just outside of our perception. Her figures are fictional characters trapped in the bubble of a dream-like circumstance. Rebecca Chaperon is an artist who lives and works in Vancouver, BC Canada. Her work is exhibited/collected internationally.'


What? One lucky winner will receive a copy of Eerie Dearies as well as a print of their choice.

When? You have until Monday, May 25th to enter.

How to enter - Visit Rebecca's shop then come back to let us know which print you'd choose if you won. Please make sure there is a way to contact you if you win.

Optional bonus entries...
(please leave a separate comment for each entry or they won't be counted!)
• Share the giveaway on facebook, tumblr or your own blog!
• Follow Rebecca on Instagram.
• Like Rebecca on Facebook.
• Follow Rebecca on Twitter.


Good luck!
xoxo

Updated : The winner is Sarah! Congrats!

  13. This is AWESOME! I had not heard of this artist before, but this book of illustrations looks so cool! I am reading a book of weirdo short stories by Kelly Link right now and these give me the same eerie/sppoky vibe. I looked at her shop and would choose the "A is for Astral Projection" print. Something about a floating girl just speaks to me! (mandiesaurus.rex@gmail.com)

  33. Holy cow - her work is incredible! I totally get an Edward Gorey vibe. It's a seriously tough choice (they are all beautiful), but I think I would go for Astral Projection or Insomnia. (Contact me through Instagram: Khrysteinah)

  36. Oooh! I have never won anything except 3rd place in a Kindergarten poetry contest. This giveaway is so perfect. I am a huge book lover and an art-maker. And, Rebecca's work is absolutely inspirational! I would love love to own that book, and, though it was impossibly hard to choose, the print "Ex Libris" would look so good in my little apartment. Now, I will absolutely go and follow Rebecca on instagram<33
