Hi. I'm in the middle of moving prints over to a new location. WHY? Because I woke up the other day and remembered that I'm DRIVING THIS SHIP. And by that I mean, I'm in charge of what my life looks like. (As are you in charge of yours!) And by that I also mean that when my TO-DO list keeps me stuck to my chair NOT MAKING NEW ART - then I'm doing it wrong. ;)
The mysterious "changes" I seem to keep referring to are happening right now. My favourite* prints are being moved to a Crated gallery. Over at Crated, they do an amazing job of printing and shipping things, offering different sizes and papers, making sure things are radical. My ARTshop will be my ORIGINAL ARTshop - meaning that's where you can find originals. I'm better at making originals than doing anything else - so I'll be working on that. The truth? It's scary to change things. I can't please everyone and I don't know how the transition will go. But, I'm optimistic and SUPER excited to have more oxygen for painting.
What YOU WILL LIKE:
CRATED: You can order prints in ANY size! On paper or on canvas. Framed or unframed. Etc, etc, etc. It means more options for you and better prices on most everything. Oh, and MORE RELIABLE SHIPPING, too. How cool is that?
ORIGINAL ARTshop: MORE ART! More originals, new work, art for sale. Original art is awesome. Prints are rad, too - but my fingers are itching to make stuff. This is where you will be able to find those pieces.
What WILL BE DIFFERENT:
CRATED: There won't be as many prints. Currently, there are over 150 different prints for sale in my current ARTshop - in different colours and sizes. That's bananas. That's too many to keep track of. I'll be culling and archiving over a hundred of those prints.
ORIGINAL ARTshop: There will no longer be prints - just delicious original art in a variety of sizes. Canvas paintings, original script work on watercolour papers. New cool things and more room to grow.
SUPER big, warm thanks for being so cool while I attempt to jiggle things around. We can't keep up anymore and that's a nice problem to have, but also a call to action to figure out a better way. I'm hoping this it. I'm SUPER excited about the new sizes! (The WELCOME Bus Roll is now available as big as 72 inches tall!)
Here's to striving for balance, creating art and DRIVING YOUR OWN SHIP. ;)
