You Belong Here Mushroom Shirt Review

10 out of 5 Stars I love this shirt!!!! The message is so salient and just what I needed right now. I love April’s art and any chance to brag about them. I also love that I have a slogan tee that isn’t gray. Boooooring! I’m a small or XS at times. This shirt is a small. You can see it’s a relaxed fit, but it doesn’t swallow me. Feels pretty durable, too, and I don’t think I’ve noticed any shrinkage in the wash. I enjoyed wearing it on my last day of TMS treatment (pictured here). -Mel Finefrock, Author Picture of Mel wearing a light blue extra soft shirt with mushrooms growing out of a banner that says, "You Belong Here."

Artistic Affinities

7 square cards for the “Autistic Affinities Visual Card Game By April Marie Mai.” The top right square has orange ink line abstract painting with 2 lines of white showing behind a teal circles watercolor, with a dash of sprinkles of color from one of my abstract Color Explosion paintings in pink, blue, teal, yellow, green and white. The square below that has a purple allium flower, which is made up of many purple flowers in a globe, a photograph of some of my sketchbooks as a strip on the left side, and blue watercolor splatter along the bottom. To the left of that is a drawing of mine of circles in black ink touching each other, each a slightly different shape because they were drawn by hand, with a white paper behind it peeking through on the right side and the bottom and rainbow splatter from my abstract paintings all over. The square to the left of that one has a mirrored close up of one of my abstract paintings, with mainly hot pink around and a diamond with stripes of darker hot pink, blue, yellow, white, orange and purple inside; the top fourth of the image has teal hand drawn circles on top and there are two purple and yellow pansy flowers in the bottom left corner. The square below that has a mirrored abstract pattern in sky blue and pomegranate red with bits of white and olive green, creating red stars and curved corner star shapes; the bottom left half of the image has hand drawn circles in a slightly different version of sky blue. The square to the right of that one has a hexagon pattern with seafoam green, blue, orange, yellow and black abstract drawing with outlines in black ink and filled in with circles and dots, with a watercolor line going vertically on the left side in seafoam green with a thin graphite pencil line within. The last square in the bottom right corner is a close up photograph of dots on white paper in sky blue, with squiggly lines going up and down the left side of the image in black and black watercolor splash on the bottom half.

A preview of a project that I hope to create…fingers crossed!

A I is creating art made from the stolen work of others…meanwhile I’m just remixing my own!

I’ve added URLs back into my social media posts because you shouldn’t have to sort through everything to find what I’ve posted. Social media dings me for that and limits the reach of posts with URLs in them, so please consider sharing, liking, and commenting more so my work can still get out there!
Thank you!

Unintentional Exclusion is Still Exclusion

We don’t usually see the hurdles we’ve put up that aren’t hurdles to us. Arts and other types of organizations are often selecting for things they aren’t intending to, and in the process losing access to applicants that could be a great fit.

Review: April’s Digital Business Cards

April's Digital Business Cards Review by Mel Finefrock, Author 5/5 Stars I'm blind, and this is the coolest, most sustainable, most accessible business card ever. No paper. No print or much-despised QR codes to fight with. No helping folks try to spell my weird last name when they ask how to find me online. I can pack light because it's always with me. Plus, it's gorgeous, and I get to support another disabled artist besides, especially anytime someone asks where I got my super cool business card. I also purchased crescent moon keychains for myself, my sister and her fiancé, and we love them. AprilMarieMai.com
