How do you promote an art show? 10 stupidly awesome Facebook posts.

Well, I wish I could say that I thought of it first, but I can't. It was Kerry Smith (Artist, Illustrator and Amazing Designer/Owner of Blackdog Creative), who started this impromptu promotional campaign for our upcoming exhibit, Artigras with Amanda Thoron, Ron Laney, Sophie Lara Walton and Kerry and me. But, what fun to see what popped up the next day. 

Below is the collection of doctored images shared on Facebook to garner attention from our friends. To woo them with our nonsense. To impress them with our Photoshop skills. To let them  know, in no certain terms, we don't care what you think, we are having an art show. Come or don't come, we're going to have some fun.

Check them out:

 This might be the most believable one Kerry made, if you are aware of our more ruggedly softer side.
