Holiday Help Wanted :)

ho hO HO! The Holiday season is certainly here and papa commerce is right around the corner. RTD's art prints have several holiday craft/art markets that they will be participating in. I'm extending the invitation to one or two lucky folks to be part of team RTD this holiday season. It's no golden ticket to the chocolate factory, but you will be helping me find homes for all these happy little RTD prints over the next few weeks.

The dates would be November 28th & 29th, and the first two weekends of December, the 5th & 6th and the 12th & 13th. You will be working at my artist & fleas location in Williamsburg (1 block from the Bedford L stop) and it would be from 11:30-7:30 each day. I'm currently working on booking other shows, so I could have some other days available as well.

So if your dream of fighting crime or becoming a super hero hasn't quite panned out yet and you are looking for some temporary (paid) work to get you through the holidays, shoot an email to - info (at) rawtoastdesign (dot) com << (the "at" and the "dot" are for outwitting those pesky spam robots, if it outwits you, then you probably need not apply). Give a little background info on yourself, why you like RTD, and why you like being happy and selling stuff at the same time. Links to your FB pages, websites, etc are all welcome along with any other interesting facts about yourself too. All applications need to be in by noon, Thursday the 26th (gobble gobble). Early application is encouraged as I will give this to the 1st person I feel would make a great fit. If only five of the six dates will work for you, some flexibility could be possible, so please still drop me an email and let me know your "unique" situation. (xmas bonus to anyone who can do all six though :)

Looking forward to adding a new member to the RTD family!

Best,

Jesse / RAWTOASTDESIGN

University of New Hampshire



A recent spot illo for the U of NH alumni mag. It was for an article about a woman’s pledge to lower her family’s carbon footprint which eventually led to the formation and creation of the New England Carbon Challenge – a regional, science-based, non-profit organization dedicated to finding and promoting individual solutions to global warming.

Editorial Illustration - St. Louis Magazine



This illo accompanied a short article in the October issue titled "Crossings" by Frank Kovarik. The piece explores his emotional connection to the City and the City-County line rift that has developed over the years. He looks forward to the day that the balance of power and the distribution of resources could shift enough that the County and City will patch things up and reunite.
