My Etsy Shop

Before my brain explodes trying to get a handle on how to work with all this technology that keeps distracting me, I thought I’d put in a plug for my fabulously neglected Etsy shop.  I’ve had it for 3 years now, but only recently have actually tried to promote it.  (No wonder I haven’t sold anything…doh!)

The main items for sale right now are individual alphabet letters.  I created the original painting series  way back in art school, scanned them, cleaned them up and repainted them using “digital” brushes.

They are each 8×8″, printed on beautiful archival Velvet Fine Art paper, which has the look and feel of a cold-press watercolor paper. Each print is hand-signed by me and offered for sale at the bargain-basement price of $18/each or 4 prints for $60 (not including shipping).

The prints are bold, whimsical and vibrant and I’ve been trying to market them as a “great addition to your kids’ bedroom”.

Well…we’ll see what happens…..

Stay tuned for upcoming children’s growth charts…but only if I can figure out how to correctly load roll paper into my funky printer.

Inspired!

Last night we trekked over to the Red Vic on Haight street to see the films of Al Jarnow, the amazing experimental animator who is best known for the work he did in the 1970s and 1980s for Sesame Street and 3-2-1 Contact.  His own stop motion work incorporates found objects including: seashells, stones and blocks– even his baby son!  His studies of the passage of time and light and objects moving through space are incredibly inspiring.

What objects in my own day-to-day life can I animate?   Popcorn? our Guinea Pigs? Our children? Art supplies?  food?  The possibilities are limitless..
