Yesterday’s card sale was a little slow to start, but I did manage to get more sales including one lady from the UK and another two paintings sold from my former Artist Alley manager Melanie Johnston, and an old classmate from school. As I mentioned before, it’s usually slow during the first part, but crowds really fly in during the late afternoon and early evening hours!
Even though this is already one of the best sales I’ve had so far, I’m hoping for a great finish with two days left! Those of you who haven’t stopped by yet and bought anything, here’s your opportunity because the prices of the paintings have been reduced!
The prices of the cards will remain the same, since they are one of the best sellers so far! Make sure you get a chance to stop by and tell all your friends and relatives as well because you don’t want to miss out on this great opportunity!
Hope everyone has a great 4th of July! Thank you to all our men and women for serving our great country!
If you wanna make this the best Independence Day and not sure what to do, today’s your lucky day because Kevin’s Cards is officially starting the card sale today at the Alameda County Fair’s Artist Alley!
This year is going to be even bigger and better than before with all new greeting cards and paintings for sale. Plus, for the first time, the new Kevin’s Cards logo, business cards, and posters will make their debut, so you can see another artistic side of me and so that more people can contact me to order more cards.
As an added bonus, the posters I created with TV Nostalgia, Video Games, Fast Food, and more will be showcased in a photo slideshow, so some of your childhood memories will be brought back to life!

Yesterday, I made a pit stop at the Alameda County Fair to get a preview of Artist Alley and to just to have fun!
As a reminder to what Artist Alley is, different artists display their creations and sell them to visitors and locals who attend the fair whether it’s paintings, drawings, photography, jewelry, or homemade handicrafts.
As for the actual fair itself, it’s one of America’s pastimes for all ages, whether it’s riding the rides, playing carnival games, eating fried junk food, or exploring the different exhibits, there’s something for everyone!
While I did enjoy the fair, the main purpose for coming was to do the final advertising for my upcoming card sale to the different vendors at Artist Alley, the exhibition booths, and even a few fairgoers.
Don’t forget that my upcoming card sale is July 4 – 8 at Artist Alley at the Alameda County Fair. I’ll be located at Building F in F17, which is next to the Model Railroad Exhibits. The fair hours are 11 AM – 11 PM, except for 4th of July, which the fair will be closed at 6 PM and the fair gates close at 3 PM. The prices for merchandise are as follows:
6 for $5
Be sure to tell your friends, relatives, neighbors, and colleagues to stop by and to check out my creations and to buy some cards or paintings! Hope to see you there!
Hope everyone has a great Father’s Day! Make sure to tell all your father’s and grandfather’s how much you appreciate them!
You may not believe it, but this marks the one year anniversary of the Kevin’s Cards Website! I can’t believe how it went by so fast!
From paintings transformed into new greeting cards, to all the cards I’ve sold, new poster designs, art and wine festivals I’ve visited, and even the new logo and business cards!
As this website continues to grow and develop, I plan to do more of these things and share my experiences with others and I hope for more successful card sales in the near future, including this year’s Artist Alley at the Alameda County Fair!
One month from today, Kevin’s Cards will be having a card sale July 4-8 at Artist Alley during the Alameda County Fair! Here are some of the updates so far:
-Artist Alley is located in Building F near the Model Railroad Exhibit and my exact location will be announced later this month
-Greeting Card prices are the same as previous card sales ($1 Each, 6 For $5)
-Paintings are $25 for large and $15 for small
-Kevin’s Cards logo and business cards will make their debut
-There maybe a few surprises as well, so keep an eye out for that!
There’s gonna be lots of preparations to take place before the big event, so I’m hoping for a successful sale prior to last year!
Make sure you tell all your friends, relatives, neighbors, and colleagues to stop by and pick up some cards or paintings! Hope to see you there!
After months of hard work, the Kevin’s Cards Posters are finally ready! These posters include more custom made sports posters and the Kevin’s Cards Special entitled Best of Kevin’s Cards.
The sports posters include the different teams on located on different playing environments such as a football field, a baseball diamond, and a basketball court. This will give people a better understanding of what sport it is and where they can find their favorite team.
The Best of Kevin’s Cards series is a mash-up of different paintings from the past three years divided into different categories such as Summer, Fall, Winter, and Best Sellers, and displayed as if it were in a real art museum. This series is a great way to see a bunch of paintings at once, especially if people didn’t get the original painting from me.
As I’ve mentioned before, this was one of the projects I planned on doing because of my interest in sports and I wanted to find other ways to use my paintings and it was even better than what I envisioned! Hopefully someday they’ll make their debut at the next art show, including this year’s Artist Alley at the Alameda County Fair!
The good news is that the Kevin’s Cards Sale is still happening at Artist Alley at the Alameda County Fair this summer! For anyone whose planning to attend, here’s the schedule of the actual fair and when my booth will be open:
Alameda County Fair
Dates- June 15 – July 8 (Closed Monday & Tuesday)
Hours- 11 AM – 11 PM
Kevin’s Cards Sale
Dates- July 4 – July 8
Hours- Same as above (Note: Fair Closes at 6 PM July 4/Fair Gates Close at 3 PM)
The location of the booth along with the prices for the cards and other merchandise will be announced later! Hope to see you there this summer!
Kevin’s Cards has a new project under development, which will become the Kevin’s Cards Special! One of them will feature some of the best paintings from previous years, which will be known as The Best of Series; and another one will be special greeting cards.
Although I can’t tell you exactly what it’ll look like, I’m sure that it’ll be a big seller along with the regular greeting cards. Details will be announced later!
If you like sports and love hating on your arch rivals, a new page with these types of posters has been added that’ll do just that, entitled A House Divided! This series is when you take two teams and split them up into rivals.
Examples include the following:
-Boston Red Sox vs New York Yankees
-Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears
-Golden State Warriors vs Sacramento Kings
-Stanford vs California
-Army vs Navy
All the sports include MLB, NFL, NBA, and NCAA. As I’ve said before, this was one of the projects I planned on doing because of my interest in sports and it’s fun to see rivals square off against each other, especially if they play in the World Series, Super Bowl, NBA Finals, College Football Bowl Game, or March Madness.
No matter what sport you watch and who your favorite team is, it’s always exciting to see them play whether it’s a live game or watching it on television!
Anyone who has been waiting to see the rest of my creations, this is your opportunity! More paintings from past years have been uploaded, so you can get a glimpse at some of my latest creations.
In addition, I’ve mentioned that I was also a poster designer as well, so I’ve added a new page for my custom made sports posters. They’re an alternative to my original design, but I feel that these are even better than what I’ve originally planned because it helps everyone learn about whose in what division while keeping the integrity of the team colors. Now, everyone can find their favorite teams with in these posters.
Even though a lot of people like sports, will there be special posters for Kevin’s Cards? Absolutely! A lot of these paintings will also be transformed into exciting projects as well! It will take a lot of creativity and imagination, but it’ll totally be worth it!
Who knows what will be the best seller!
