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.
Just completed a b/w personalized birthday coloring book for a new company called “My Paper Monkey”. They also offer personalized notebooks and doodle pads for kids.
Lately I’ve been experimenting with turning my doodles into a newly developed illustration style. I’m also working on animating some of them using a mounted movie camera and istopmotion software to do some under the camera animation. I’ll post some of my experiments with this soon.
Right now, here’s a few images I’ve been playing with from my sketchbook. The blank screen is actually a simple gif animation from a flipbook I created back in my old ‘art school’ days.
I thought it might be easiest to put my latest news in a blog format…enjoy!
I’m still getting the hang of Word Press’ features,so, please bear with me with I fumble around trying to upload images and text while trying to customize my page…
