Positive Magic Voodoo Kittys!

December 10, 2014

Very Happy and excited to announce the arrival of my Original Positive Magic Voodoo Kittys to the world wide web!

Welcome to:

http://www.VoodooKittys.com

The Original Voodoo Kitty

I carefully hand-sew each Voodoo Kitty to be unique and one-of-a-kind. This is to celebrate the diversity we see in real life and each be a piece of original collectable fine-art.

The Voodoo Kittys are constructed from various scrap or recycled fabrics as well as buttons and beads I purchased from local shops and some donated to me by local residents in San Francisco, CA. They often feature and highlight Authentic African Fabrics and beads. That way making and selling Voodoo Kitty allows me to support traditional African cultures & artisans, bridging San Francisco and African economies. In turn spreading positive vibes to all local communities around the world.

Please do enjoy your journey through our gallery of ready made Voodoo Kittys for you to choose from and if you want something extra special you can order a custom made Voodoo Kitty right from the custom order link. I will make a special Voodoo Kitty just for you.

While you are there check out all the cool accessories you can add to your custom made Kitty!

Voodoo Kittys do sometimes make an appearance at street-fairs, local art shows as well as non-profit events. Most recently did a coloring activity table and donated some Voodoo Kittys for raffle & spin the wheel prizes at Haight-Ashbury Street Fair Halloween Hootenanny 2014. The kids loved them and so did the parents. Spreading and seeing the joy is priceless.

Help us Save The African Outlet! Keep African Culture and Diversity Alive in Hayes Valley, San Francisco!

January 29, 2014

With great honor I have been working with my dear friends and community at The African Outlet getting their campaign online to save their store in 20 year landmark location. Creating Graphics, a facebook page and moveon.org petition under the direction of owners Judah Dwyer and Horgan Edet.

The African Outlet is an independently owned shop and magical place in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco (824 Octavia Street). You can refer to them at their links TheAfricanOutlet.org and facebook.com/TheAfricanOutlet

They bring traditional African culture, ambiance and quality African cargo directly to and engaging with our community in the heart of San Francisco since 1989. The African Outlet with their group of drummers and dancers, The African Outlet Experience participate in community cultural events in the SF Bay Area such as Carnaval Parade, Juneteenth Parade and July 4th World One Festival. It such a joy to participate with them in these events. In 2012 I wrote a blog post after participating at their event in Carnaval where you can see with your own eyes https://moonsquirrel.wordpress.com/2012/05/29/african-outlet-experience-at-carnival-2012-san-francisco-ca/

Supporting independent local artists and merchants in the Bay Area and across Africa making them essential to our economy.

Many of my hand-sewn items such as Voodoo Dolls and medicine bags are sold there and I collect from them many special charms to use in my work. Horgan and Judah are both very knowledgeable about the items and the culture/traditions/story behind everything in the store. I go there often for inspiration, to learn and share my work with the community. I learn something new every time I go. 

The African Outlet means a lot to me and so many people in my direct community and is an essential asset to the quality of life in San Francisco. If you support local art, independent business, traditional African culture or want a boost of some powerful good Ju-Ju, you are all welcome and invited to help us by liking, sharing and inviting your friends to our facebook page at facebook.com/SaveTheAfricanOutlet

Also you can sign at share our petition at petitions.moveon.org/sign/save-the-african-outlet

This will help get our message out to our official representative and show the landlords and property managers how much The African Outlet means to us in San Francisco and beyond.

Thank you so much in your interest. Here are some graphics I made for the campaign which if you like, you can use to share our message and page links. If you do this let me know if you like I can post your link on my blog and give you some huge shout-outs in exchange as thanks.
