I recently completed my first Lino-cut print, the process is very interesting because you carve a sheet of linoleum to remove anything you don’t want printed, since the linoleum holds the ink and transfers it to the paper the image must be drawn and carved in reverse. Once you finish carving the block, you apply ink with a roller and the add your piece of paper, cover the entire thing and roll it through a press to transfer the image to your paper. You must repeat this process for every single print. Due to the unique manual print process, each print is completely unique and each one varies slightly. These were hand printed by me, and the paper is high quality printmaking paper, with deckled edges. I have two options available now in my store.
17″x24″ digital print on 100lb paper, UV coated. Comes in two versions, warm and cool. Both available now, in my store.
I have a new print up in my shop available in two different versions. One is a 18″x18″ square and the other is a full sized 18″X24″ poster, both printed on 100lb paper and coated in a matte UV coating. These posters are limited and are only $25 each or $40 for the set. Feel free to check them or anything in my store out right here.
So after weeks of fiddling with this maze of a print, I have finally finished! This is an 18″x24″ digital fine art print that is made up of a collage of illustrations I did over the past year. Some of these are from my sketchbook, some were client work and some were commissions. These were my favorite illustrations of the year, and like every year i’m offering them up all together as a print,for a limited time! Actually, there is two prints. There is a “regular” version for $25, and a variant edition for $30, there is also an option to get them both for only $40! Whaaaat? yup, you heard me right, BOTH for only $40! Grab one for you AND a friend today, in my store. These prints will signed, numbered and dated and a very select amount (if any) will be available after Fri 12/8. As always all orders come shipped in a sturdy tube (or flat mailer, depending on size) and will include stickers, a business card and maybe a couple extras.
I recently released two new poster sized prints, both 18″x24″ digital print on 100lb paper, hand signed, numbered and dated. Please visit my shop if you would like one.
I was recently lucky enough to be asked by the great folks at Bridge Eight Literary magazine to be featured as the artist for archetypes, the sixth issue of this killer publication based in Jacksonville FL. Here’s some details.
Archetypes is a crafted collection of short stories, poems and nonfiction pieces that explore the beliefs, hopes, and dreams that tie us all together—and sometimes drive us apart.
Inside is the story of bitter, homeless writer, typing lines for unsuspecting patrons; and one of an unlikely connection between a man and a queen bee. The poetry sweeps from lost legacy to iconic cartoon. There’s an essay by an author who asks, “how can we take back the image of a Swastika.”
It’s unlike anything we’ve published before, just like you’d expect.
You can Pre-Order this issue here!
Hurricane Irma came and went, and my area got pretty lucky. We had some downed trees and billboards/signs as well as some power outages. I actually still don’t have any power at my home, but we really did get lucky. I want to extend a thank you to anyone that wished me and my family well during the storm. I am still in the process of getting back to my daily routine and I will be shipping all orders today, even if it is the old fashion way (driving to the Post Office). I hope to have my entire operation back up and running by Monday September 18th. If you are waiting for an order or design from me please be patient I am slowly but surely getting caught back up. Thanks again to every one of you that has supported my art and purchased something or hired me for a design, it means so much. I will be donating 50% off all sales from today Wed 9/13 until Sunday 9/17 at midnight. I will be donating the funds to a charity (have not chosen one yet) to help the victims of hurricane Irma. If you’d like you can mention a charity in the sale notes at checkout. Please keep the victims in your thoughts and prayers.
