50 New Titles for Recovering the Classics

April 28, 2015

Recovering The Classics is coming back! We're excited to announce a new partnership with the New York Public Library, and the Digital Public Library of America, to make Recovering The Classics covers freely available on ebooks for schools and libraries across the country! 

We're working now to build the campaign with 50 more titles in the collection, and these new partners will allow us to share them with more people than ever before. While we won't be able to offer the new covers as print-on-demand paperbacks like we did before (at least not yet), they will be available as ebooks, plus the prints, apparel, and other products we sell at www.thecreativeactionnetwork.com

We can't wait to see the new work that comes in, and will be featuring new work in an upcoming gallery show at the New York Public Library later in May (more on that soon!) 

So take a look at the 50 new titles below and then get drawing! Upload your designs when you're ready!

Our 2020 Year in Review: Helping Artists & Good Causes During the Pandemic

December 18, 2020

What. A. Year. 2020 was not by a long shot anything close to what we'd expected, but Team CAN weathered the storm and stuck to our mission of helping artists and good causes, who as it turned out, needed our help more than ever. In the spirit of staying positive and hopeful as we (finally!) round the corner to 2021, we wanted to share some of our silver linings and proud accomplishments from 2020 with you. (We put them in chronological order because we thought at least one thing in this crazy year should make sense.) We hope you enjoy our post and that you and yours have a very safe and happy holiday season and new year! ❤️
