Bright Lights, Dark Tees...

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are all well. Boy howdy (I've always wanted to say that), do I have a lot to share with you Lovelies. First, you may have noticed that little skull animation over there to the right. Like it? It was my first foray into the world of GIF images. Thought I'd spice things up for you here on the blog.

Also, if you'll notice below that, a link to my first Threadless t-shirt submission entitled Chasing Pirates. I plan to do regular submissions to Threadless to bring some beautiful darkness to the masses (haha) and they will all be posted here if you want to score them. This tee is up for scoring all week, so hop on over and score it really quickly if you have a second. Thank you. Oh, and here are some process shots just for you followers:


What else? Oh! My Dark Playland piece was featured on the front page of Etsy, which is exciting! It's kind of a dark piece for Etsy, and it's great to see it up there. Coming up this week, I will be posting a new Cigar, Creeper & Dark shot (that's really creepy), as well as some new mini cards I'm excited about, so keep an eye out!


Are you all familiar with The Little Friends of Printmaking? I've posted about them here a few times. They are wonderful. The other day, I ordered their 2010 calendar because it was on sale, and any opportunity to get some letter press goodness, I'm there. Well, I got it, and it is wonderful! The artwork? The quality? Look at the imprint depth in these shots I took. I am now a huge fan!


I have found another wonderful design studio I wanted to share. I Love Dust is based out of the UK and even their flash intro is beautiful. I really like the way they mix the old with a new sense of aesthetic, oh, and those circus themed milk cartons? Sigh.


Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
