The Altarista's Co-Lab

I have a hard time labeling myself as an artist. Slowly I am coming around to the title. Recently I have become friends with Artful Chica. You remember her from the contest I won where she sent me some of her amazing art. Member? You member? Well she told me about this annual auction. Where artists make cigar box shrines that are auctioned off to raise money for the Oaxaca Street Children Grassroots organization.

To say that I was floored when she asked me to collaborate with her on a shrine is an understatement. She is like a real life amazing artist. Instead of making excuses and declining the opportunity like I normally would. I took a deep breath and jumped into the project with both feet. It felt like a great opportunity to be creative for a good cause, and to get to know this amazing woman better.

We will be sending the cigar box altar back and forth and we have put up a blog where you can follow us on this journey. So please click on the picture above and see what my partner in shrine and I have been up to.
