New Art on Etsy

Posted in animals, Art, Hybrids with tags , , , on July 17, 2009 by scratchyb

I added a new piece to my Etsy store.   It’s another addition to my ongoing series about the denizens of the Arbortoreum.  Yes, I butchered the word “arboretum” on purpose.  The Arbortoreum is a special grove for trees that have cracked under the pressure of life in this world.  They just sit and dream of crazy animals that inhabit them.  This here’s a scorpmunk.

I was going to quit this series after I had about five or six, but I’ve had a couple of cool brainstorms and I think I have at least 10 out of my actual sketches alone.

Robots vs Monsters

The latest two projects I’ve been working on, aside from the ongoing hybrid animals, have been miniature 3 x 3 inch paintings of robots and handprinted monster-face coasters.  Well, I’m happy to say that at least the robots are coming along just fine so far.

I’m going to be putting these up on Etsy one at a time.  Not sure which arbitrary number will be the final one, maybe when I’ve reached 10?  Or 12?

The coasters aren’t going as well.  The best means of protecting the image, so I’m told, is decoupage gloss.  I don’t have any, and haven’t made that trip to the craft store yet.  So that one is on hold.  Not to mention that the order of cork coasters I got was actually slightly larger than the block I was printing with.  Shit happens.  Being as ADHD as I am, I’m already moving on to new things.
