Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Are you wearing your green? My mom asked us over for a dinner and movie tonight – corned beef and cabbage and the newly released version of Darby O’Gill and the Little People ( http://imdb.com/title/tt0052722/ ).

I wanted to post because I just found out about this site http://www.savepolaroid.com/ and encourage you to please visit. There is also a flickr group http://www.flickr.com/groups/savepolaroid/ devoted to it as well. They ask you to please upload a polaroid picture to the flickr group, download the postcards free off the site, print them out and send them to the powers that be. They also have more actions that can help, such as signing petitions etc., etc. I’m not sure if wrote on here about how polaroid will no longer be producing instant film after 2008. It is very heartbreaking to me, as I use their film very often, and I own and collect polaroid cameras. As much as I am hurt to hear that polaroid is doing this, I can’t imagine how panicked those artists who work strictly in polaroid, and make their entire living from it, must be. All hope is not lost, with this cause, your help, and the fact that polaroid said they would be willing to sell the rights and ability to produce polaroids to another manufacturer, instant photography might be able to continue on. Please, please, please visit the site. Here it is again http://www.savepolaroid.com/ .
Thank you very much.


Hi, I'm Robyn and I was Hatched from a Kinder Surprise Egg. Graphic Designer by day, Maker of things by night. I have worked as a graphic artist professionally since I was 16 years old. Went on to get my Bachelors of Art from NIU. I like to share my Artwork online at flickr.com/photos/robayre and on my own personal website http://www.robayre.com. I also have an online shop http://www.robayre.etsy.com where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (artomat.org).

  1. Hey, I thought that was the photo of my painting, but then I realized it is a winter photo and the painting is green. :) I love it.
