Aurorah Yarberry
"Aurorah is a classically trained animator, and
illustrator who works in a wide range of mediums.
It’s not uncommon to paint a hand lettered sign in the mornings and then jump into digitally based graphics project in the evenings. Aurorah is also an accomplished in traditional mediums such as drawing and painting with water colors and oils.
The dominating theme in her current work in the wide va- riety of projects she encounters as a professional working artist. Aurorah has worked on animated projects from feature films, fully animated prime time series, and short films. In additional to her animation work Aurorah does a lot of illustration from series of illustrated musicians, to poster and logo designs which feeds her work as a brand identity and media consultant for emerging companies.
Her strengths come from conceptual thought process and a passion for visual narrative while remaining flexible and enthusiastic for the next challenge. She is currently developing a children’s book and working as a freelance artist and designer."

Akiko Jones - Art of Me
"Art of Me began very simply - about 4 years ago I wanted to acquire some new art for my home, and the only way I'd be sure to like it is to have the subject be myself. I never expected this whim to turn into a project. The pieces I have are about half commissions and half gifts, from friends and friends of friends. Some of the artists are primarily performance artists who draw or paint on the side and have day jobs, some are professional artists...and have day jobs.
My intention by joining this show is:
To inspire the creative person that sits beside you - or within you.
To celebrate art as gift, whether money was exchanged or not.
To explore how the portrait can still be interesting in the age of the selfie.
To encourage anyone who sees the show to contact an artist here for your own project, contact one of your own friends to make you something, or you create for them.
*Thank you DooGallery for giving me the opportunity to feature in this show!*"
