February Art Round-Up and Give-Away

Monday, February 18, 2013

Time to get our art on, fellow geeks!


Jessica S. sent this in last week, and it literally made me laugh out loud with delight:

 By CGHUB member barak144

This is the happiest, cutest thing I think I have ever seen. Seriously. Can you look at this and NOT smile? NO YOU CANNOT.

I coudn't find any information on the artist beyond his/her gallery folder, sadly, but even more tragic is that I see no way to purchase a print! (NooooOOOoo!) I WANT THIS ON MY WALL!

[3/11/13 Update: Good news! You can order prints now! WOOHOO!!]

Ahem.

Karen Hallion does some of the best geeky mash-up and nouveau-inspired art around, so odds are you've already seen plenty of her work around online and at various t-shirt sites. Her steampunk Disney princesses series was wildly popular, and this Nouveau Labyrinth piece is still one of my favorites anywhere:

 
Karen's most recent series combines the Doctor with all the different Disney princesses, which is super fun:



Head over to her Etsy shop to see lots more! 


I've been drooling over Camilla d'Errico's work for years, although I seem to have a knack for falling for the paintings that aren't available as prints: 

"Canadian Tiger"


"Grasslands Goddess" mini-print, $20 ($27 signed) 

See the rest of her available prints here at her webstore, along with other goodies like books, jewelry, and even pillows. (And if you like her work, note that I have a three-print set of hers on my give-away board, so be sure to comment to enter!)


Time for some more cuteness:


"Like A Sir" by  Salvador Ramirez Madriz 

It's not available as a print (yet?), but you can see the rest of Madriz's work at his DeviantArt gallery


The always amazing Tom Whalen has a new Transformers piece out: 
(Released as LE posters, but they've already sold out.)

I love absolutely everything Whalen does, and not just because he has so many Disney and geeky pieces. His style is just so dang cool! Sadly his prints usually sell out in a matter of days, if not hours, though, and since they're all limited edition they don't come cheap. I still mourn the loss of the Steamboat Willie poster I was just a few hours too late to purchase. (Although I'd settle for Duck Dodgers, if anyone out there is feeling generous...)

I've mentioned Jason Thomas and Jennifer Teeter of Red Rocket Farm a few times over the years (you might remember my Sharpie tattoo from Jason last year), but I don't think I've ever really shown off Jason's art:


Each of his handmade paintings are 3D, like a paper cutting made with wood, and most come in three different sizes that start around $35. I have three of their smallest sized paintings in my office already, and their t-shirt featuring this little guy (aka "Splatbot") is one of my top five favorites. (John's favorite is Ollie.) 

We had dinner with Jason & Teeter a few months ago, and I was amazed to learn that Teeter does all the shirts' screen-printing and packaging by hand - the shirts look so professional, I thought they were mass produced!


And I know I don't have any room left on my office walls, but that doesn't stop me wanting this giant rocket ship:


So. Cool. 

That one is something like four feet across, but maybe I can talk Jason into doing a smaller version some day. [hint hint, Jason. HINT HINT]



And finally, Bianca Roman-Stumpff is a local Orlando artist, so of course I'm half tempted to NOT show you how awesome her work is just so I can keep her all to myself. :D However, her series of geeky teddy bears alone is too fabulous not to share:


And here's another favorite:


 Would you believe I *just* noticed that his tentacles are forming a heart? AWWWW.

I have two of Bianca's pieces hanging in my office now - one of her original "Puff Monsters" and this adorable TMNT print. I think all her newer work is only on Facebook, but you can see lots of her older stuff over on DeviantArt.

Right now you can only purchase from Bianca in person at local Florida events and conventions (she'll be at Megacon again this year), or you can contact her on Facebook about commissions. Maybe if we all ask nicely we can get her to open a web store that offers shipping, though! And as a consolation prize, I'm adding another of Bianca's original Puff Monsters paintings to my give-away board (this one), so at least one of you will have the chance to claim some of her art that way.

Which brings me to this month's give-away! Just like last month, all you have to do to enter is leave a comment. The winner will be randomly selected next week, and will get to choose their prize from my Pinterest Art Give-Away Board. I've added a few more pieces since last month, too, so I just might pick TWO winners this month. [eyebrow waggle] 

I'll ship anywhere, so comment away, everyone! And I hope you enjoyed this month's roundup!

UPDATE: The drawing has ended, and our winners are Jade Rodger & Amy Broadhurst! Congrats, you two, and please e-mail me your mailing addresses & art choices!

  6. I love ALL of these, but especially that little octopus and Ariel with the TARDIS!

    (and those steampunk Disney princess are so fabulous I want to do the steampunk Belle as a costume. I'd thought about it before but couldn't come up with something I liked. I love that one.)

    ReplyDelete
  7. So I let out an undignified squee when I saw the octopus and spun the monitor to show my husband and his response was "... you know that's shopped right?" The things I have to live with. :D

    ReplyDelete

    Thanks so much, as always!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I always enjoy your art round-ups. We have fairly similar taste, and you always find the most wonderful things! That being said, I have to scroll quickly past the octopi since anything with tentacles gives me the heebie jeebies.

  17. I always love checking the site and finding a new art round-up page at the top! There are so many great pieces here, as always. :D I think my favorite this time has to be the DW/Disney mashup. But that could just be because I'm going through DW withdrawals. Thanks for the smiles, Jen! ^^

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  112. That is the cutest octopus! Love the art roundups. So much fabulous art out there.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love the way you broaden my horizons! I have always been a geek by nature, but it is SO fun to have such a vibrant, creative community to unite us! And, I suspect it is much easier for you to be in the loop in a large metro area, then it is for somebody like me who lives on the far side of the boonies!

    Truly, I would have a freakin' hard time picking one--l love so many of them!

    ReplyDelete

  120. That baby octopus is deadly. If you get in contact with the artist and he does prints, give us a heads up please! To make myself less sad when taking down Christmas decorations, I started decorating my mantle with a rotating assortment of art and knick-knacks with a different theme every few months. So, really, I need more art for being less sad. make it so! <3

    ReplyDelete
  128. All of this art ( and all the other art you post) makes my heart smile about a millions times. So if you would "randomly" select me it would be awesome. Also, my husband forget valentines day which makes me a sad panda so I would really love something awesome. You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  148. SO CUTE! I'm so glad I've got a geeky-cute-things-loving role model so I don't have to pretend to be completely mature when I'm grown up! (Okay, I'm technically an adult, but I still verbally keymash and talk about feels, so I'm not sure how "grown up" I am.) (Also I forget that 1 when Caps Lock is on doesn't automatically become !.)

    ReplyDelete
  149. That octopus is adorable! And all of the art you share is always amaze-balls. I hope I can win some art!

    ReplyDelete
  150. I love the octopi-both of them! So cute.

  151. Have you ever heard of Justin Hillgrove? He paints some super adorable pieces as part of his "Imps and Monsters" collection. I picked up a print of "Hanover" at a festival a few years ago and LOVE it!

    Check out his site (and especially his 'tributes' section for some Star Wars, Peanuts and Buffy the VS fun!):

  155. I definitely love the wee little robot.

    ReplyDelete
  156. The Ollie t-shirt made me laugh. John has good taste in shirts!

    ReplyDelete
  157. Looooove that little octopus! The stuff on your board is great too; I think I'd first have the difficulty of choosing one, and then where to put it?! But I'm sure all the suffering would be worthwhile ;)

    ReplyDelete
  158. I have never seen such adorable octopi until I "met" you, heh. Who knew?
    I just ordered a card set of Karen Hallion's Disney/Who art, to frame and hang in my daughter's room. I have the Cinderella one on a tshirt, and she loves it every time I wear it. But since she's getting new art, I think that means that if I am lucky enough to be picked to choose from your board, I get to keep it in MY room, yes? ;-)Altho, I'd probably pick the sketch from Disney Cruise that has Goofy in it, and give it to the biggest Goofy fan in the world, my kids' Grandpa Mike. He'd love it!
    Thanks for doing these giveaways!

  159. That little heart octopus is so stinkin' cute! He'd match the octo sticker on my car :)

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks animals like that are adorable. My husband just rolls his eyes...

  174. Thanks for mentioning Karen Hallion! I found her cards in a shop at Christmas, and gave my daughter one with Belle and Dr. Who. She loved it, but I didn't get the name of the artist. Now I have it and her etsy shop saved for more perusing and shopping. So happy!

  181. Octopi kind of creep me out (tentacles, sucker thingies, etc.), but that first little guy is ADORABLE! Wednesday's my birthday, so one of those gorgeous art pieces in your Pinterest collection would be a super gift. :) I've been a long time follower & love both of your blogs. I think you & John are just swell! Your stories are so inspriring. On that note, I'll go now before you get the restraining order... :)
