Camille Rose Garcia prints have arrived!

We just got in a batch of the CRG "Lil Elorphant" prints and will be contacting everyone on the list who pre-ordered one. We still have some so hit us up and we'll tell you how to get one of these beautiful prints. If you are in the area feel free to stop by and ask to see them in person, they are stunning.
This is a charity print, with ALL proceeds going to help the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant rescue and rehabilitation in Kenya, so you get an amazing piece of art AND can feel good about helping adorable critters!
