Introducing the Newest Addition To My Studio

I am totally excited about the newest addition to my studio, a top of the line Epson Ink Jet printer that I can now print my own Giclee prints on and I must say, I am having a ball coming up with new creations using it!

So far I have been making stickers of my artwork in all shapes and sizes and am in the process of designing new biz cards and promo cards for my art.   Mind you I have only had the printer for 1 day lol and so last but definitely not least, actually my favorite yet is the awesome giclee prints that I am able to print here in my studio now!  

What I did here was cropped out just a portion of 2 of my original acrylic paintings Don't Pop My Heart and Bathing In Rainbows, I then printed them on 5x7 heavy weight archival matte photo paper and added a whole bunch of hand painted detail making them each their own original and one of a kind pieces of art.  They were then sealed with an acrylic matte sealer/varnish and then hand stitched to a decorative piece of cardstock that was just slightly bigger then the prints making the entire pieces apprx 6"x8" in size.  In the end I had this...

Fabulous Punk Attitude

I finished a new t-shirt and backpack last night and just got them listed in my Etsy Shop.  I have received many requests over the past few days for larger sizes of my t-shirts as all the ones I have listed so far have been small.   So this new shirt is a large fitted tee and so that is why it appears so baggy on my dress form (my dress form is a small so it doesn't quite fit properly in the pic) 

As for the backpack, the painting on it will look familiar as I posted it a few days ago available in print and I think I mentioned at that time that I would be sewing it to a backpack soon.   I know in the pics it is hard to read the quote in the painting, it says "It is better to be hated for what you are then to be loved for what you're not!"

Mini Backpacks

I listed 2 brand new handmade and hand painted backpacks in my Etsy Shop today, they are almost identical to the rest of them except these 2 are shrunken down and so are half the price!

New Artwork

First off I have a new print available in my Etsy Shop today titled "Punk Attitude" and featuring a big eye punk girl appearing to be hopping out of the painting holding a black and white spiral over sized lollipop.  This painting has a quote in it that reads...

"It is better to be hated for what you are then to be loved for what you're not!"

This painting is actually done in fabric paints on a piece of linen and will be sewn on to one of my handmade backpacks later today.  I just really wanted to make this one available in prints before I did that.

Next, I finished another t-shirt!  This is done on a small size gray jersey knit cotton v-neck t-shirt and features a whimsical painting of a face on the front.   Only the front is painted.  The price of this shirt is $39.99 on Etsy.

Oddball Art Co Apparel

This t-shirt has been designed and hand painted by me in my studio with my original big eye zombie artwork.  This shirt is a tank top style in black, size small and is just the first of many more to come.

I actually have 3 others here finished but I found out yesterday that the white shirts and pink shirts were rather difficult to get great photos of so I can not post them just yet.   But for now here is the black one...

The Sound Of Silence

I finished another fabric ACEO last night titled The Sound of Silence and featuring yet another big eye zombie girl, this one is under water blowing bubbles! lol

You can find out more about it from the Etsy Listing.

I also received a custom order on Tuesday to create one of my hand painted journals with my big eye art on the front and a high heel on the back.  This is how it turned out...

I am always available to create a custom hand painted journal anytime of anything you can dream up or want me to dream up for that matter lol  Turn around time is apprx 2 days and this makes a lovely gift.  I can do just the front for $35 or both front and back for $50.   If I paint only the front the back is still done to match the front it just wouldn't be hand painted with a picture.  For example, had the one above been ordered to be painted only on the front then the back would have been just the solid leopard print with out the painting in the middle.  There is a listing in my shop for the custom order if you are ever interested in placing one.

Dearly Departed

Just listed today another handpainted fabric ACEO featuring my original big eye zombie artwork.  This one is titled Jenna H., Dearly Departed.

If you missed any of my last posts about these little cuties, the short of it is....  I handpaint them on a piece of linen fabric using fabric paints and markers, I then iron it to heat set the paint forever and sew it to a decorative piece of cardstock which has been cut to the standard art card size of 2.5" x 3.5"

No More Lisa

Todays new one of a kind backpack, designed, handmade and handpainted by me in my studio features my original big eye zombie artwork and is titled "No More Lisa"
