Thank you for visiting this page and for helping me out. You are here by invitation . . . I’ve asked you here because I value not only our friendship but also your opinion.
This is a new project for me, though I’ve been gnawing away at the idea of doing something like this for a long time now. I wish I’d had that “ah ha” moment years ago!
I’ve always wanted to make my art as affordable as possible and this is the best way so far. The process of creating art is so wonderful, and I think that all artists wish to pass that on somehow in the finished piece. I’m pretty sure that’s not entirely possible, but with this new project perhaps it comes one step closer?
I’ve created a set of 10 black & white images, each in the dimensions of 8 x 10 (20.3 x 25.4 cm), printed on a letter size sheet.
People who buy them can them color them individually as they wish. They can use colored pencil or acrylic paint or ink . . . they are printed on a white, sturdy card stock. That means when they are done they will be durable enough for framing if desired, and they can also be varnished for protection and increased durability.
So the real benefits are the joy of art (without the need to draw, which many find intimidating), and then the pleasure of the finished piece, either for one’s self or as a possible gift.
That’s about it. Oh, I’m thinking of an asking price of $25 USD for the set plus $5 shipping in North America and $8 elsewhere . . . yes, that’s pretty much what the postage alone costs, even for a small package in an envelope.
Now here is a picture that shows all ten images in a collage. When I launch it I’ll also have a link to the actual color versions of this art, more as a guideline than as a rule . . . thank you Jack Sparrow for that timeless inspiration!
Now please, please, please give me your thoughts, either here or somewhere on Twitter, Facebook. etc. I want your initial reactions, positive or negative, and on any aspect (e.g. images, sizes, prices, etc.).
Thanks in advance,
PS – For a better idea of they look, here is a larger version of one of the pieces:
