Flyer for a show in Santa Rosa next week! Hosted by Pizza Punx
This one’s a lil more cuz I’m quite fond of it :)
Please note that the original artwork does not have the very light grey halftone effect that you can kind of see on the sidewalk she’s stepping on (I did that afterwards in photoshop). Other than that the original looks exactly like this.
I need to make a little extra money so I’m selling some original artwork.
Above is my original comic page for the “Four Square” exhibition at Double Punch Gallery in San Francisco last summer. 11” x 11”, ink on bristol board, 2013. $60. Purchase here.
I think most all of my original artwork could be for sale, especially stuff from before 2014. I’m not sure what people would want so if you’re into my work and have some extra $$ to spend, consider checking out the work on this blog or on my website. If there’s anything that catches your eye that you’re interested in potentially owning, let me know and we’ll figure something out. Again I have the originals for pretty much everything. Pricing will depend on how large, detailed, and awesome the piece is, but will generally be in the $50 - $150 range. Thanks!
Or just order anything from my store
