I Try My Hand At Glitch Art

I have been fascinated with Glitch Art lately, which is a neat way to make artwork look like it has been digitally wreaked.  I think it ads another visual layer to an art piece.  Artists spend so much time trying to make their images tack sharp with perfect contrast or composition, that I can’t express how much I enjoy making things blurred, glitched, grainy- anything but “perfect”.  It’s just to much fun!

I went searching on the Rijks Museum for the main art pieces, and I fell in love with these portraits, which all tell a story of some sort, they have a look, a mood.

This is a collage I made using an old painting and a background from the page of a book. What painting you ask? Well, it was painted in 1623 by Gerard van Honthorst and was called The Merry Fiddler. I absolutely fell in love with the image, its so expressive and the coloring is festive and moody.

Redbubble just impresses me more and more.

I upload all my digital illustrations and designs onto Redbubble where you can get them printed on art paper, artboard, acrylic blocks or stickers.

This is one of my newer prints, Canadian Explorer.

Arrival of the Art Print
Woopwoop! Unrolled, the print is 400mmX300mm (16×12) Lookin’ good!
A close up
Lightly textured 100% cotton paper – nice and thick. Plus lots of white space for you to go get it framed up.

 

Once you get your Art Print, you can get it professionally framed, get a frame yourself, or even glue it to foam core and prop it up (see below)

Holy smokes, I have been up to a lot lately.

I have been having a blast making cool designs out of vintage images and turning them into t-shirts or home decor.  In the few hours that my Baby naps, I work on these designs, or some of my writing (more below on that).

 

Redbubble has all the designs and illustrations.

Threadless has all my clothing

And I still have all my Landscape and Lifestyle Photography over at Society6.  This store has so much fabulous home decor items, like pillows, totes, blanket’s, rugs and clocks.


My writing is slowly, slowly improving, and I have been making a writing/art project.  It is a newspaper based in a fantastical, magical world that is hidden from normal, non-magical humans.  The paper is called The Cunning Crow, and it reports from the city of Umbra, a hidden place in the hills South West of Kamloops, British Columbia.

Issue 1 reports on The Death March Migration, Mountain Giants and how to keep Running Roses from terrorizing the neighbors yards.

Issue 2 reports on the Shadow People attacks, and interviews Hades and Calliope on their new business venture.

All the ads are created by me, and I include explanations that really help people understand the world.

I have also been writing a thriller/murder mystery. Its still developing, but I have been really enjoying fleshing this story out.

It’s about an 18 yr old who is trying to start her life again after her parents death, but finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery in the new city she moved too. I’m wanting to make the city Kamloops, but a made up Kamloops that is a massive city instead. We’ll see.

I joined the Camp NanoWriMo, which is a great source if you need encouragement, reminders and a fun way of tracking your writing numbers.  Make sure to donate to them because they do a lot of work for kids, schools etc, and NanoWriMo in November is amazing, and you can meet so many wonderful authors this way.

Anyway! Hope your days have been wonderful and productive this summer too!! thank you for stopping by and/or reading my work!!

Cheers~ Trish

Fancy New Work Abound!

Posted on

I have been a busy bee creating new digital artwork. I recently watched Sing, which was cute, but I LOVED the song Golden Slumbers covered by Jennifer Hudson. I played it on repeat while working on all my art, and then named a couple pieces after it lol! This is a new collection of collages made from illustrations scanned from vintage books and texts, mixed with photo filters and photographs. Here are the first few I have released:

Dictionary of Rad Words is a collection of words that I love, curated with my photography or vintage images and typography. This was so much fun to make, I love learning new words, obscure words we don’t use much in daily conversation.  Or simply strong words, like Gumption, that make you feel inspired and strong, or silly words like Bumbershoot that make for fun home decor pieces or awesome gifts.

ABOVE: All the notebooks with my new artwork on them.

My store is full of neat gift ideas, unique home decor or just cool things to spoil yourself with. Some of the newer decor items are thick kitchen or bathroom mats, or giant floor pillows, excellent for kids to hang out on!

New Vintage Fall Photos

Posted on
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L.M. Montgomery
I spent the weekend writing and wandering around my yard taking pictures of all the things that remind me of Fall, and I have decided that few things are more glorious than the changing of the seasons, each one brings its own charm and style.

 

 

 

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
― Henry David Thoreau

 

 

I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.

-Emma Goldman

Just in case you are wondering about what i used to edit these, head here and check out FilterGrade. I am so in love with all their products for Photoshop.

I had a blast testing out all the different styles & listening to music all afternoon (loving the playlist from Filtr Canada:Soundtrack For Study). Perfect Sunday
