this is the result of yesterday afternoon's painting -
after creating both of these guys, i am actually tempted to keep the originals for myself! they look kind of amazing when flanking my armoire in my bedroom. for an artist, i actually have very little art up in my apartment (let alone my own!) (i actually probably won't get around to picking out frames for them and wouldn't want to hold onto any of my work for too long - makes me itchy or something! lol)
i'm really starting to get down to making a whole lot more art to fill up the new categories that are going to start popping up over in the shop, so i'm hoping this inspiration streak continues! i really want to create a whole world with my work and express just about everything i can imagine. i have no idea where this notion is going to take me, but the freedom of subject matter i've started to allow myself has been feeling pretty darn liberating!
on a small side note: in the coming months, i also have plans to unleash a whole bunch of new card designs, now that you can purchase card singles! shipping for one card is only $1.75! (flat rate shipping on the site is actually going away soon. shipping charges will be based on weight, so if you're only ordering teeny things, you pay less for shipping. yippee for that!)
enough about all my miniature empire type plans! off i go to attempt more painting/designing/scheming! :)
(you can find prints/the original of mr. peacock over in the shop.)
