Happy Anniversary!

Two years ago, the Kevin’s Cards website was launched to display my art and to post blogs about card sales, art I’ve created, and other various topics.

Recently in 2019, I’ve added more travel blogs to places I’ve been to such as Washington DC, Seattle, Disneyland, and Las Vegas. I hope to continue to visit more places like either New York City or Boston. Who knows where I’ll end up next?

As with my cards, I’ve recently added some new ones created with watercolor paints, so there will be more varieties to choose from. Although some people wanted cards for a particular occasion, all the cards can be used for anything such as birthdays, holidays, or anything at all.

However, the winter paintings are perfect for Christmas cards, so I usually create those during the holiday season.

Overall, Kevin’s Cards has really developed within the last three years and I hope to continue to create new projects and sell more cards, including at Artist Alley at the Alameda County Fair!

Happy Anniversary to the Kevin’s Cards website!

New Watercolor Paintings

After months of hard work, the new watercolor paintings are ready!

Treasurefest

Yesterday, I attended Treasurefest in San Francisco’s Treasure Island with my best friend Sam.

Usually I attend this event alone, but this was the first time that I brought someone with me and it was kind of a last-minute plan. The only thing I bought was a white Tim Rattay jersey, who was the San Francisco 49ers quarterback from 2000-2005 after recently buying a red Terrell Owens Jersey during the last event. Both of them were from 1996-2008 and Sam said that they were the best uniforms that the 49ers wore along with the gold pants.

While I didn’t see Linda Cullen last month, I was able to see her this time and gave her some of the new Kevin’s Cards Brochures I created so she can have more information about me and potentially order cards.

Although I do enjoy going to art shows alone, sometimes it’s more fun to go with friends because they’re something for everyone. As I’ve mentioned before, Treasurefest is one of the places where I can sell my cards along with other shows, art and wine festivals, or craft fairs.

You never know which one will work the best!

2019 March Madness Champions

Congratulations to the Virginia Cavaliers for winning the 2019 March Madness Tournament! It was an intense battle, but in the end they won it all by a final score of 85-77 over the Texas Tech Red Raiders!

With College Basketball season over, it’s on to the NBA Draft for a bunch of seniors to see which teams they’ll play next season!

College Basketball is more intense than football because there’s a bunch of schools competing and it’s hard to tell who’s in what conference, which is why they don’t call it for March Madness for nothing.

I don’t know if my projects will relate to college basketball, but I have done a bunch with college football since a lot of the teams, conferences, and rivals are pretty much the same, but who knows what I’ll come up with!

To all the future college players out there, good luck next season!

Back to Baseball!

Today the 2019 MLB Season kicks off!

The defending World Series Champion Boston Red Sox will have a ten game road trip to face the Seattle Mariners, Oakland Athletics, and Arizona Diamondbacks, before coming home to face the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Oakland A’s will have a seven game home-stand with their division rivals the Los Angeles Angels and the Red Sox before heading on the road to face the Houston Astros.

The San Francisco Giants will be on the road to face their division rivals the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers before coming home to face the Tampa Bay Rays.

This year’s All Star Game will take place at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. It’ll be a long journey to see who will face off in this year’s World Series and who will be crowned the next the next champion!

If you want to find your favorite teams, check out A House Divided for the MLB and/or my custom made MLB Posters.

To all the teams out there, good luck and have a great season!

Las Vegas Tour (The Finale)

The final leg of the Las Vegas Tour included places I didn’t get a chance to cover until today!

First stop was a bird’s eye view of the strip from the High Roller Wheel. This giant Ferris wheel is larger than the one you see at the county fair and you can have a bar service that’s perfect for celebrations and get-togethers!

Next were the other two casinos I wanted to see on my last visit, but never had the opportunity: Treasure Island & The Mirage. There were also some other places I wanted to revisit, but unfortunately I didn’t have enough time: 

-Trump Hotel

-Circus Circus

-Fremont Street

-Madame Tussaud’s

On the flip side, I did manage to visit the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, since I wasn’t able to do it on my first visit.

Overall, this trip to Las Vegas was even better than the first because I was able to see a lot more things and I got an opportunity to go to my first Vegas Pool Party, which was definitely the highlight of it all!

Can’t wait till my next visit to Las Vegas and to see where my next destination takes me!
