Renegade Preparation

Working on some 3×3″ paintings for the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago this upcoming weekend.  I’ll post them as I’ve completed them, but nothing’s going to be for sale until the fair.  I can say though, that the theme is going to be metal song titles, and the evil they inspire.

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.
