Super Happy Handmade Art Funtime Birthday Sale!

Well, it’s that time of the year again. On Sunday I will turn another year older. I remember a few years ago on my birthday it was when I really made the decision to hit this art thing harder than I had been. And I can honestly say I have been doing that.

If stuff doesn’t look like it’s on sale it’s because everything has free shipping in the US. (Reduced shipping for my international patrons too!)

You can see closeups in the store. Continue reading

The thing with doing art is it requires a good amount of focus. It’s easy to get sucked into side projects and I have been trying to get away from ┬áhaving too many things going on at once. Sometimes it is unavoidable. In the case of the motorcycle print I simply don’t have the tools and ink on hand to do the whole job right now. I could write an update about the fine tuning of pixels in Photoshop, but there really isn’t much to see. So over the weekend I set to work on a quick prototyping of a custom MUJI A6 Blank Notebook.
