how do you know who did it?

posted in: Shameless Commerce | 0

Am in some process of conversing with CafePress about including the names of designers/artists when they feed listings to Amazon.
On the one hand, it’s cool to have more listings (example: the Dragon Reader / Ex Libris design) . On the other, I’d like my name attached to my art.
So.
Emails.
Will post here when I have a chance; have the first two up in facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WhimsicalDreamsArt/notes
A couple more replies have occurred of the “we’ll look into it” sort, but in very nice ways.

Art for your very own!

I’m selling originals! Lucky for most of us, they’re often small.

Here’s how to get one:

Browse the gallery (the deviantArt one is most complete), find something you like (I’ll note there if it’s been sold or given away already), and make an offer. Direct email is best (kir@metasilk.com). If I’ve already listed it somewhere, we may have to go through them (say, if there’s already a bid on it). Otherwise, let’s talk (or email).

OR

Find a listing in my Etsy shop and buy it there. Here’s the shop link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/StudioMetasilk

OR

Bid on an eBay listing. Here’s my eBay list: http://www.ebay.com/sch/elksdotter/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686 (I know, ugly URL. Oh well, it works! )

Commissions are possible too (of course). I might even be able to do something small before Christmas. Let’s talk!

So I had a tiny scrap of matboard. Well, small anyway — about 1 inch across and 1.5 inches tall. Roughly.

Well, colored pencils aren’t the tool with the finest resolution but hey.

I think I’ll put this on stamps. I scanned it at 600 dpi, so I can print it …but honestly, it would look ridiculous on anything larger! Really!

I sketched out a bunch of ACEO ideas oh, far too long ago. Been working them out of the sketchbook onto cards. This one I threw onto gear too. Probably printing way too big, huh? I am so going to have to come up with a better image to wrap around the teapot, though; it might be my new favorite cafepress item.

By the way, there's a sale on for a day or so.

Art Show! Me! Mojo!

OK, so Art on Main has an annual Community Art Show for ages 2-whenever. Sliding in under the deadline, Mojo and I both brought 2 pictures down for the show. I matted “Unexpected”, and framed three of the WeatherWomen together. Mo has “Flower Shooter” and “Sunshine”, in mixed media and marker, respectively. (Mixed would be “marker plus stickers”.)

I’m just tickled that we did this. I’ve been wanting to get enough prepped that I could call ’round and arrange to hang stuff in coffee shops, and I’ve not done it yet, but now at least here are two things ready. (Unless they sell, although I grant that’s unlikely, as I took someone’s advice to “price it so you won’t miss it when it’s gone”.)

Reception: April 16th, Friday, 5-7 p.m.
