it's really no contest... "Daydreamer" is the most popular image i've ever made. Born at the intersection of my creativity, curiousity, and slackerly nature, the image has illicited more feedback from more varied kinds of people than any of my other works...
i guess if i can figure out how to duplicate its appeal, i'll officially be an artist!
anyways, there's a grip of products available with this image, so feel free to vote with your wallet!
please don't make me discuss the meaning of "The Wall"... it's okay if you don't get it. ultimately, i thought it was cool, i drew it, and i made it available for cats to buy. if you just GOTTA have a "meaning"... go check out the inspirational greeting cards and other assorted stuff i made with it.
this summer, I was searching for something, getting my rummage on, and found some print etchings from college. There are three separate images from limited runs of 5 each, that I thought had sold out. So I was pleasantly surprised to find these, and decided to put them on sale.
they go for $50 apiece. i sold a couple this summer, and here they are again. For those who like the images, but can't afford the fitty bucks, you can purchase poster prints from café press of the images a little cheaper (click on the name of the print for the online store...)
The original etchings are 6x9, set a little off center in the middle of a sheet of heavy textured paper thats about 11x15. if you are super anal, you may want to cut the paper down to fit a frame, or crop the image. I wont STOP or FORBID you, but I dont recommend it either. I personally consider the seating of the image part of the original art.
Etching (the same way money is made) produces prints that are made by drawing an image, and transferring the image onto a metal plate (using a complex process) with acid. The plate is then smeared with black or colored inks, and hand pressed to produce the image you see. Because I pressed, signed and numbered these images by hand, each print is slightly different, with minute variations in the color, seating on the paper, and signature. The runs are limited; after the print run is completed, the metal plate is destroyed.
Anyways, here they are:
Daydreamer 3 of 5 still available. Also available on Café Press
For whatever reason, this image is very popular. I have probably sold more posters of this on café press than anything else Ive done. If these dont all sell within a week or so, Ill keep the last one for myself, and raise the price up high. Its a meaningful image for me, and in my opinion, my best print.
Untitled (John Henry) 2 of 5 still available. Not yet available on Café Press (if you would rather order a poster of this, let me know, and i'll hook it up for you!)
John Henry was a steel-drivin man! Of all the fables (technically, J.H. is a tall tale), the story of John Henry was my favorite! Don't ask me why
Maiestas Domini 2 of 5 still available. also available on cafe press
I painted a massive acrylic piece based on this print. The painting was in an art contest, and as a result, I wound up selling the other three of these at $125 a pop in one day(I also sold the painting to my man nature... Ah, weren't the Clinton years awesome?) its my take on the majestic messiah imagery from the book of revelation
If you want to buy one of these, let me know, and Ill get you a link to pay with paypal, or you can mail me a money order. this is a sale offer, with limited supply, so if you see something you want PLEASE let me know...
