Whidbey Island artist Anne Belov will speak at the March 14 Professional Series Meeting on "Strategies to a Successful Kickstarter Campaign." As a Kickstarter success story, Anne will share her strategies for not only meeting her original fundraising goal, but surpassing it. She is a fine artist who has actually made a living off her art for over 20 years. Her infectious laughter, silliness, and panda kindergarten pranks might give you the impression that she feels life is a continuous party, but she's extremely organized and disciplined. Anne paints, writes, makes prints, and is the founder of The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire. Her paintings are on view at the Rob Schouten Gallery. Her cartoons appear in The Panda Chronicles, and her new book is available by clicking here. In April, she will teach a course on Beginning Egg Tempera at the Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio. She has written articles about Kickstarter for Funds for Writers, New York Artists Online Blog, and Whidbey Life Magazine.
