As we hang out today in the studio, I am working on something new. There’s carving, etching, gluing, inking, cutting, rolling, and a lot of “oh crap” coming from me as I piece my technique together.
For a while now I’ve been wanting to create a series of pieces that are meant to be verbal reminders of feeling good. I sometimes add an empowering word or phrase to my paintings, but those are rare because I don’t really feel the urge to add words to imagery very often.
I remember back in my corporate days there were all these posters on the wall that were meant to motivate the employees. Things like the word ‘leadership’ with a picture of an eagle, or ‘teamwork’ with a bunch of dudes rowing a boat. I thought they were stupid… I still think they’re stupid.
Nowadays I have things that I put up in the studio and around the house to motivate me and give me a sense of empowerment. The difference is that instead of promoting complacency, everything I put up is about celebrating your individuality and feeling empowered… Also, they’re not stupid.
The other difference is that I hand create them, not simply print them out of a printer.
Each piece in the series will have a limited run of 100, will be signed and numbered by me. For this Memorial day weekend I have these for 25% off, plus other items in our store are on sale until Tuesday May 29th.
Also, if you want something specific that means something powerful to you, please contact me about creating a print inspired by you.
