Close Up

Ooooooooo these designs turned out BEEEA-U-TI-FUL

I though everyone would like a close up of some of my newer prints!  They are printed on thick, textured Art Paper and shipped direct to your home. They have white space around them in case you want to get them framed, or you can adhere them to foam core and use command strips to hang them on your wall! Easy-peasy.

I post home decor ideas on my Twitter and Facebook if you need ideas, or just want to stay up to date with what I am creating.

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.

Canadian Explorer Wild Roots Art

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)

wild roots artwork and photography

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
