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 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.
Spurred on by my sudden flood of inspiration to create things, I started making these neat vintage collages. I take illustrations collected from old books and I Photoshop them to make these fantastic, strange and funky art pieces.
I talked about the above work, Cup of Creation here.
Wildlife and Women are meant to show Mother Nature caring for animals, sometimes holding them like a child. Which really resonates with me ever since I had my baby boy (and definitely my Muse). BUT, mostly, they are just a blast to make, old fashioned women with snakes and snails; its just interesting.
For most of these images I was listening to some of my favorite podcasts, Just a Story, Talk Nerdy,Myths and Legends, and a new one The Monster Guys. I recently made a list of awesome podcasts at my other blog for writing here. Man there are some high quality, fascinating shows out there and they are oh-so addictive and the perfect thing for creating (or spring cleaning, drinking, relaxing, gardening, suntanning etc)
One last thing, these prints are up at my Threadless store, available on a wack of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing. Please go check it out!
We all have a playlist, the one that works perfect for whatever it is you are doing, or how you are feeling. Bad day at work? Make it loud and angry. Heartsick? Make it soulful and melodious. Working with a Bebe? Make it Disney tunes. In the car alone? Songs you sing bloody loud and think you sound A-MA-ZING!
I am a huge SPOTIFY fan, so I thought I would share my playlists with you!
