In an attempt to keep things balanced (as they never are around here) I’ve decided to post a mixed media piece today. Or four. But they pretty much go together. I think.
I’ve never been to any of these cities, but I did sell the pieces… so that was pretty cool.
Now where did I put that Dramamine?
About this image: mixed media – graphite drawings of structures / maps & solvent transferred ‘stamps’ – scanned / combined with digital type – gel medium transfer onto (4) painted 10″x10″ panels
All would probably do well on a tshirt.
Bearman is totally right – these would sell like hotcakes. Or travel maps.. or.. (you get the point)
SO INKY, How do you sell you stuff??!! Where can the “average joe” (or christy) get a look-see?!
Oooh… I wish I had a map to some hotcakes!
Honestly Dishy, this sort of thing is somewhat rare. We have random pieces in our store and hope to establish a stronger online presence in the future. For now I’m just hoping to find those hotcakes… 🙂
These sold already 🙂
… and not surprisingly because they are hard rockin’!
Thank you, Annabelle.
I bet you say that sort of thing to all your husbands, though. 🙂
😛 all 26 of them!
What is this store of which you speak?
We have a paint-your-own pottery store in suburban St. Louis…
You two are too cute! PS: I think the magical hotcakes finding map is pretty elusive.. like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. In this case, warmer and covered with syrup.
Hahaha… Thank you, Dishy!
There’s probably a leprechaun involved in this, too… not sure why (just seems like there could be)! Hand over the hotcakes, ya’ wee rogue! 🙂
These are really, really cool and I think really, really sellable. Mass production is calling your name! Now you need to do the important cities like Columbus, Ohio.
Thank you very much, U.M – that is very kind of you to say!
At one point I was planning on doing more cities… how did you know Columbus was on the top of that list?!
And thank you very much for stopping by, too! 🙂
SO HUNGRY! 🙂
These are cool and sound like alot of work. Bearman is right…t-shirts or posters or placemats or well, you see where I am going with this. Nice.
I was thinking they might make some pretty sweet mudflaps, too! 🙂
Ditto on all the above. Very eye-catching!!
Thank you very much, Jillsy! 🙂
I used to live in Berlin and you got it exactly right, even the orange sky and floating barb wire.
I tried to tie everything down, but you know how these things go…
They are very neat designs and would do well as posters or as metal signs or probably a lot of other things.
Thank you, Binky – I appreciate that! 🙂
Um, where’s Australia?
I SWEAR I intended to make one for Sydney!
I still hope to someday…
Oh you must go travelling to at least one of those great cities soon…
Some day I would like to…
They kinda look like postage stamps. Nice work
Thank you, Tony! 🙂
Yes I can see these being printed onto almost anything, you name it they are there… If that were true then you would be quids in by now, well okay then dollars but very rich nonetheless… I rather like them and I too thought that these were postage stamps… How wicked 🙂
Thank you very much!
I really like to work on mixed-media piece every now and then… I haven’t had a chance to for a while, but I hope to try a few new ideas out fairly soon!
really mixed bag here loved the framed work and theothers could easily be a poster in the making xxjen
Mixed media is a lot of fun… I feel like it’s the best of many worlds… it gives me an excuse to work with many different kinds of media…
Thank you very much for your kind comments, J.G.!
Love its texture! ^^
There were quite a few ‘layers’ in these…
so I think that provided a pretty fun effect.
Thank you very much!
