I am The Worst at doing things in a timely manner, but I finally have some print shops set up on both Society6 and Inprnt! There’s a variety of work up there, mostly Sten things for now, but Gormenghast stuff will be being added soon, as well as a few other things that I like. It’s all my black and white work for the time being as well, though once I finish more of various other series’ of things, they will be added too. I just want to wait until I have more than one or two of the things in the series before adding them.
So if you like this piece:
or this one:
or even this one:
You can now get beautiful art prints of them! Though if you live somewhere that isn’t the US, just watch out for the shipping, as it can be a bit pricey. Society6 often has days of free shipping though, so it’s worth keeping an eye out for those kinds of offers.
And just to finish off, you may or may not have noticed that my official website has had a bit of a spring clean, and is now looking much nicer and easier to navigate! So feel free to take a look!
So there’s this creative platform, still fairly new, that I’ve been making work for since I graduated. It’s called Pop My Mind! and it’s basically a great big social game of creative/artistic telephone. Someone posts something, or a seed is posted, and then the community responds to that post with a work inspired by it. And so on and so forth. The thing I love most about it is that it’s cross-platform creativity. Illustration, fine art, music, photography, writing – any kind of creative output can be a response and in turn inspire responses.
I’ve made four responses so far – three to seeded prompts, and one to another artist’s work. And there are lots more that I have planned/am in the process of making, because there’s a lot of work on there that is inspiring. It’s especially great for me to be able to take something from a totally different discipline to my own and then twist and turn it into something that is mine. The platform is already growing a lot since it first started and I made my first piece – in fact it’s almost at 200 responses. Aside from that, there’s already been an exhibition which my work was featured in, and there’s a Sonification event coming up soon featuring work from the platform. The demo video actually includes this piece of mine that I uploaded:
It’s a super fun thing to do, and I enjoy making work for it. I saved my favourite piece that I’ve made for last, even though it’s the one that took the least amount of time to make, as it was a response to the 1 Hour Challenge seed that was posted.
So if you’re interested in a platform that’s a bit new and a bit different, then go and check it out at http://www.popmymind.com/ And if you make something, inspired by my work or not, then let me know! I’d love to see it.
