Just received a new stamp from Simon’s Stamps – I am still amazed at how quickly they can turn things around. I’ve had a little extra time to finally finish up the wiener dog print which is up on the site now. Enjoy!
It’s been entirely too long since I’ve updated the blog!!! I’ve got some new prints in the works – including this little gem based loosely off a little weinerdog sketch from a while back. Have also been working on a few gigpoosters so keep an eye out soon for some new work!
Always find myself waiting to the last minute to send out cards. I really wanted to print some this year. Options were fairly limited on paper colors so had to use what I had on hand – but with the wife’s approval – the snow theme seemed to work well with this Blu Raspberry coverstock from French Paper. If you can’t tell from the image – the “snowflakes” are made up of old school Christmas lights. I mixed a little transparent base so the white wasn’t so overbearing – the red has a little silver metallic to make it shine a bit. All in all – I was pretty happy with how they came out (but was not very happy about cutting all of them out by hand!) especially for an afternoons worth of work. After all were cut out – we used a corner punch to finish – was definitely worth all the punching. I’m thinking next year, might try some out on the site – just can’t wait to the last minute again!
It’s been some time – but HSR is hard at work on some new prints and should have some new work up in the next month or so! Until then, if you happen to find yourself in or around Rock Hill, SC – stop by Gallery Up where you can check out some great local work and also snag some HumanShapedRobot prints in person! I’m excited to have my work available at Gallery Up along with so many talented artists!
I often get asked about framing prints – and where to find frames for the sometimes “odd” sizes of prints sold on the site. First, I’d quickly like to explain why some prints are the size they are, then give you a little advise from my experience framing prints. Please note – I’m no expert by any means – so consult your nearest framing expert before you do this on any super fancy prints (or give me a shout and I’ll do my best to help!). Read More
I usually pop cards into tubes or handout to anyone I might want to check out my site. I wanted to share a way that I’ve used to make “business cards” quick, but most importantly on the cheap. I use a custom rubber stamp, and time cards that I cut by hand. (Everyone get out your X-acto’s!) Read More
