Merry Christmaaahs From the Sheep Incognito Flock!

We want to take a moment to thank all of Ewe for being faithful flock fans for the past year – and years before: because of you, we can continue to bring smiles, happy giggles, and a few heartfelt “awww”s to your world and the art world at large.

This past year, we were so lucky to get to meet so many of you in person – we LOVE getting to see smiles in real life, and hugs make our day, and bring back some warmth to the world, so THANK EWE for stopping by!

To those of ewe that have placed orders on the website, or called in, or snagged art in our #SheepFling events on Facebook and Instagram: thank ewe for giving the Sheep Incognito such maaahvelous friends to hang out with – I consider myself blessed to know that so much of my art is getting to bring smiles to peoples’ lives every day, instead of just hanging on a museum wall for brief glances by passerby visitors.

Starting in January, there will be workshops and training sessions available – whether painting on canvas, or intruductions to ProCreate App, the studio will be buzzing with lots of learning getting done.
Also, though it is taking much longer than I wanted it to, I am working on my first adult/kids book.
Or maybe two. Not sure.
What I do know, is there might be monsters. And sheep. And some smiles. And the color pink. Who knows where that might lead…

I might start a Patreon account for that purpose – it’s become almost impossible to keep up with the business side of things while we travel, so we have cut wayyy back on shows for the first quarter of 2018, to give us time to work in the studio, get the book written, add some wholesale connections, try a few new painting techniques, add some workshops, and all that fun stuff.

As always, we LOVE hearing from you: how are the sheep in your home behaving themselves?
Any special requests for workshop themes? Any feedback is appreciated, of course.

We hope your holiday season is filled with fluffy things, big hugs, maaahvelous moments, and silly giggles, on top of good friends, good memories, and good things all around.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your patronage over the years – and keep a lookout for many new things happening in the Sheep Incognito studio in 2018.

With that:

MERRY CHRISTMAAAHS and have a Maaahvelous New Year!

A Flock of Sheep for Christmas

Caravan to Baaathlehem

CARAVAN TO BAAATHLEHEM – A flock of Sheep on the way to Bethlehem

 

Because sheep seem to be very observant for the most part – unless there is corn involved, then they throw all caution to the wind – they noticed something amiss in the Christmas Story as we know it: the three wise guys. The gifts. They were all wrong for someone who supposedly was just born. Yes, the baby is a king. But in the world of sheep, even kings start out as little lambs. And those generally do not derive any kind of joy or excitement over little bits of gold, myrrh or frankincense…
Of course, nobody later wanted to mention rubber duckies, dinosaur eggs, or the mysterious contents of the box that the flock of sheep brought to the manger that special night. But it might be safe to assume that in fact, those might have been the best gifts of the event.
They just did not have the writing skills to keep records for the generations afterwards…that’s where the wise guys had the advantage: if the marketing guys say it was so, then that is what will be in the history books.

Well. here is your chance to help make this Christmas join the history books in someone’s life: from now until December 20th, 2013, you can save 20% on your entire purchase in the Sheep Incognito shop by entering coupon code SIStNick2013 at checkout.
Sheep know what good gifts look like – don’t be the one with the box of smelly wood bits this year…
