I’m practically bursting with excitement because these calendars arrived and are next level. Seriously, they’re so fantastic that even I, the mastermind behind prior years’ calendars, am blown away.

I’ve been pacing around like a kid on Christmas morning waiting for these beauties to arrive, and when I finally got my hands on them, oh boy, it was like holding a slice of heaven. The quality is off the charts, and I can’t wait for you to experience the calendar magic.

Before I dive into the calendar extravaganza, let me take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to all you wonderful souls who’ve already snagged one of my calendars. You guys are awesome!

If you’re still on the fence about getting one, here’s your friendly nudge – there are only 20 calendars left! That’s it, just 20. And because I’m feeling extra festive, I’ve extended the sale until December 9. It’s your last chance to grab a slice of “Rafi” for 2024.

But wait, there’s more! For that extra dose of motivation, I’ve thrown in a signed poster. Something to jazz up your space and keep those creative vibes flowing throughout the year. It’s like having a pocket-sized muse, minus the awkward conversations.

Hold On To Your Underwear!

We are super excited to announce something for our music lovers! We are set to drop our latest musical creation on April 28th, 2023. Titled “Fools (I Fold My Underwear),” the song promises to be a playful and introspective journey that showcases how weird we all are… Especially Klee… She’s super weird.

Here is a 20-second preview of the song:

Klee and I have been creating music together for several years and have been looking forward to having our music room set up and releasing new music. We are finally set up and ready and will be putting more focus on releasing new songs more often. Some of you know this, but this is a passion that Klee has had since she was a little girl singing into a hairbrush and rocking out to a hot pink boom box.

We are told that we have a unique sound that creates an experience that is both familiar and fun. With “Fools (I Fold My Underwear)”, Klee pushes the boundaries and explores new sounds and ways of expressing herself.

On April 28th the song will release on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon Music, And other platforms. We will also be premiering our music video (yes, I said music video!) on Youtube at 6 pm Eastern, where we will join you in the live comment section. Click below to join us.

The song reflects on the self-imposed tasks that come with trying to find oneself in a world that can often feel short on time. The lyrics are introspective, touching on themes of time, love, and enjoying life. The song is infused with a playful energy that will leave listeners feeling uplifted, happy, and laughing.

Klee has always been known for her attention to detail, and “Fools (I Fold My Underwear)” is no exception. Every aspect of the song has been carefully crafted to create a cohesive and immersive experience.

The song opens with a catchy bassline that sets the tone for the rest of the track. Klee’s smooth vocals enter soon after, painting a picture of a person wondering if folding their underwear is poor time management. The song is infused with a sense of playfulness and self-awareness.

Admittedly, this song is an infectious earworm, and we hope you absolutely enjoy and love it!

Some of our music fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of this song ever since we played it during one of our live streams. We think “Fools (I Fold My Underwear)” promises to be worth the wait. The song is a perfect example of Klee’s ability to create thought-provoking and uplifting music that remains lighthearted and fun. It is a celebration of the human experience, flaws and all. Hope you join us in that celebration.

Time To Open The Art Studio! Sunday!

It’s that crazy time of year again where everywhere you go you are inundated with joyful music and surrounded by ugly sweater colors. If there is anything we all want to do a little less of is deal with holiday shopping. I don’t know about you, but I have never been a big fan of Black Friday. I’m not knocking it, I know some people who look forward to it as if it were some kind of treasured holiday. However, I don’t like traffic, crowds, lines, and fighting over parking spots. I prefer to be in the warmth and calm of my own home and enjoying a little spiked eggnog and relaxation.

To be honest with you, this whole year has been crazy. We moved a year ago and we are just now starting to catch up and get the art studio fully open and organized. We’ve had our ups and downs this year, and we have had some rough patches. We have also had amazing wins and new adventures. What we have accomplished blows my mind, but I am looking forward to hibernating a bit during the winter months.

After our move (which was nightmarish since the moment of the leak that ruined the old studio) we did not slow down. We moved an entire art studio and our few personal belongings, made repairs and dealt with a large plumbing issue, released new music for distribution, fixed the electrical in the house, built our media studio, furnished the house, hung a track system for art throughout the house, released new books, setup the art studio, set up the writing room, and held a two month long exhibition at graffiti gallery. Needless to say, we are REALLY looking forward to some relaxing (and spiked eggnog).

However. We want to do something special and share our home with you. We wanted to open the studio up to you guys again. Last year on December 11th, we had our first and only virtual open studio from the sunflower house. I remember announcing so many awesome creative plans for 2022. Instead of everything taking place in one catch-all room, we actually expanded our creative spaces. The art studio itself was not up and running yet when we went live so there was no tour. This year we want to show you where we are. There still a lot to do, but we want to share it with our online Rogue family!

So, this Sun December 11th 2022 at 5 PM EST we are inviting you to tune in to our second LIVE STUDIO EVENT in our new home. This is a casual affair where we will show some art and jewelry, tell some stories, give a tour, answer some questions, and play some music. We are also giving away $200 worth of prizes and also some ridiculous discounts as a big “thank you” for being there and supporting us through this craziness. Click on this banner to go to the page and enter the giveaway, we’ll announce winners during the stream.

This is going to be so much fun! I hope you can make it!

WHAT: Rafi & Klee Virtual Open Studio
WHEN: December 11th at 5 PM EST- 7ish
WHERE: ONLINE HERE- And chat with us on YouTube.

WHY: Because we are going to have a blast!

This includes paintings, jewelry, sculptures, books, music, and more. They also want to invite creatives and forward thinkers to come out the first weekend in September and discuss where we are all heading in this amazing town and ways to get there. Come and find a retrospective of Rafi Perez’s paintings, sculptures, and Klee Angelie’s jewelry and creations. Come hang out and talk about life, listen to music, look at some art, and have a blast.

Come and meet Rafi and Klee at their first two month long art exhibition in their new town. Enjoy art, jewelry, music, and more at the exhibition’s extended run. Drinks and a fun atmosphere will be provided. Come ready to have a good time and talk about being a rogue! Rafi will read his favorite passages from his books throughout the day, he will also talk about their efforts in the revitalization and plans for their beloved town of Oil City and the region. If you are a rogue and are excited about this area please be there. The biggest enemy of innovation and progress is apathy, but there is a way to combat it and move forward despite the challenges. They will also hold a question and answer and brainstorm session throughout the talk. He will also sign books if asked throughout the day.


Sept 9th (4pm-7pm) and 10th (11am-2pm) – Live Paintings And Creations Throughout The Day.

Our Band Is Called Better On The Drums

Enjoy some art and some great conversation and some music practice during the day. Rafi experienced his first live performance and botched it the whole way through (well, that’s how he feels) and is hoping to make a strong comeback and blow the minds of anyone there brave enough to listen. The concert will start on Friday at 5pm and Saturday at 12pm. This laid back concert will be like hanging out with two friends while they sing and play guitar. 

This will be the second time ever that we perform as “Better On The Drums” our new band. Witness Rafi be nervous again on stage… or will he be?


Sept 23rd (3pm-8pm) and 24th (11am-2pm) – Let’s Get Uncorked! And Finally Say Goodbye.

Enjoy some art and great conversation during the day and come downtown for the wine walk. They say people love buying art when they enjoy wine so we are hoping to capitalize on the phenomenon. Well maybe. However, you know what else works with wine? Great conversation! This will also be the final weekend of the show (we promise) and we’ll be saying goodbye.
