Another Wednesday Gone By

. . . and another Crypt of Doom Update!!

Well, one week left to the South Park Season 13 madness, and believe me, I can't wait to sleep.

I've been contemplating starting to sell prints of some of my paintings in my Etsy Shop for a couple weeks now and I spent all of my day off doing test prints on my Epson to see if it was worth the time or money. I must say, the prints look pretty darn good. I'm still running tests with the 5 Star matte paper. It's supposed to be pretty colorfast, but my ink isn't archival and they don't make that kind of ink for my printer, so I got an archival fixative/varnish to spray on the prints. I'm going to hold off posting any in the shop until I can run a proper 'exposure' test (a test print inside the house and a test print directly in the hot California sun for a couple days should do). After the results are in, there will probably be prints of the two pieces in the ad, as well as one more, up before Thanksgiving.

Crypt of Doom Update

Hey Y'all.

As I've said in the past, when I'm in the middle of a run over at work, I neglect everything. Including family. :(

This last Wednesday was my first day off that I've been able to do absolutely nothing, so I spend the day immersing myself in pretty pictures. In the process I realized that even though I recently put an older painting in a gallery show, it was one I'd never put up on my blog. . . so here it is all framed and pretty.

It's title is simple, just "Bobby and the Banshee". I put it in the Gala Benefit show over at Monkeyhouse Toys in Silverlake, CA. So if you missed it and you'd like to take it home with you *wink, wink* you can head on over to the Crypt of Doom at Etsy.

I also posted my "Green Eggs and Ham" tribute piece over there as well as unleashing "Ferocious Fruitcake" just in time for the holidays. :D

I was feeling so productive that I also finally got up off my dead butt and started the pattern making process for the baby squid apron I posted a design for a year ago. Keep checking back through the next month for updates on that. I'm also going to be posting a third, slightly different version of my spider apron up in my Etsy Shop, a.k.a. the Crypt of Doom before the holidays. In case anyone is interested.
