So, it’s back on and it’s going to be a blast. Myself (hellooooo strawberryluna, silly) and our friends at Hero Design Studio have teamed up with the fine folks at Rock For Kids & Clay Hayes from Gigposters.com as a part of the Rock For Kids live webcast Poster Artist Interview Series.
Thursday, June 17th at 3pm EST (2pm CST and 12 noon PST )
Also! In support of the fantastic work that Rock For Kids does, we are proud to announce we’ll be donating 20% of our online sales to Rock For Kids from Thursday June 17th to Friday June 25th. Help us help Rock For Kids!
We will be taking questions from anyone & everyone who is participating in the webcast, so log into Vokle.com to be able to ask away. Or, if you just want to watch the interview live, there’s no need to log in, just watch the stream. Though let’s be honest, interacting is more fun than just watching. Right?
So, set your watches, calendars, egg timers and sun dials and tune in for our turn in the Rock For Kids & Gigposters.com organized Poster Artist Interview Series. All of the interviews are being webcast live, via Vokle.com.
