February Art Roundup!

Whoah, this month is really slipping away! Well, here's one more dose of February sweetness for you:

 Set of 4 Star Wars 12X12 prints (more options available), $70 by OctopusTreeHouse 
(or you can buy them individually for $20 each)

Will we ever get tired of adorable Star Wars art? NO WE WILL NOT.


But I've gotta follow it up with some adorable 'Trek art. Sorry. Got to.


Set of 4 original Star Trek mini paintings, $76 by Tim Art Mclaughlin

Tim's individual character paintings are just under $26 each, and you're going to have a hard time picking a favorite, between all the superheroes, princesses, and pop culture icons. (I want half his store, easy.)


I didn't even post my top favorites, since I'm half hoping no one else will buy them and then I'll be forced to get them myself. Ha! So, yeah, go see the rest!


Next up, when dapper pigs fly:

Steampunk Flying Pig 8X10 print, $10 from the Satrun Twins

(These are the makers of that awesome "We Are All Wonderwomen" print I featured ages ago.)

They also have a version in pink:

Hee!


David Lizanetz, aka Sour Apple Gallery, paints over real comic book pages, and the results are gorgeous:

 Wonder Woman, signed & numbered 11X14 print, $19.99


 Harley print, or you can still buy the original for about $220

Lots more at his shop, so go see!


Our local comic shop had an art show this month, and of course I couldn't leave empty handed. John and I snagged the original of this Captain America by Brian Demeter:

  It's actually woodburned & then painted - my crappy photo doesn't do it justice.

I also bought this 8X10 print for the give-away board:


Oh! And then over on Brian's website I found these fabulous wooden ties:


They flex at the V joints, so they must have a fabric lining on the back. SO COOL. No word on pricing, but you can see the rest here!


Christopher Uminga recently did a series of re-imagined Star Wars characters, and it is SUPER fun:




Check out blue Chewbacca!

 Definitely feeling a little Sully from Monsters, Inc vibe here - and I love it.

Head over to Uminga's online store to see the rest - both originals and prints - starting at just $20.


I love getting to share art I love here, but one unexpected benefit is getting to know some of the artists themselves - many of whom are just ridiculously nice. Check out the ACEO Bianca Roman-Stumpff made me after I featured her fabulous Puff Monsters:



And here's another ACEO from last month's Craig Michael Scott:

Craig even made this available as a print, with my blessing. You can get one here!

On top of sweetness like that, I also keep getting free prints. Granted, it's all for you guys, since I put nearly all of it up on the give-away board, but I'm still pretty chuffed that Epbot is making enough of a difference that artists want to give back. HAPPY FEELZ ALL 'ROUND, YOU GUYS.

So. Give-away board additions!

 Hello Pony, signed 11X17 print by Charles Thurston

(Charlie finally has some of his kids' booklets, like If You Give a Hobbit a Ring & Whobacca available in his Etsy store. GO GET 'EM.)

I purchased two prints by Nathan Szerdy for the board a while ago, but now he's given me three more!

 
(Currently doing a happy dance, because I managed to buy the original of this from Nathan last month. I won't get to pick it up 'til MegaCon, though, so I'm counting down the days.)

Check the board for Nathan's other prints - I can't believe no one's grabbed his Merida yet.


And finally, though I hate to end on a sad note...

See you on the other side, Dr. Spengler.

Art by Timonthy Lim. No sign of a print yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if one was available soon.

[sob]

 ***


Ok, I *think* that's everything, but to be honest, I feel like I'm drowning in art over here. Heh. So let's play catch-up, shall we? This month, I'll be picking three winners to select their choice of art from my Pinterest give-away board. Gotta whittle this stash down a bit!

You know the drill: enter by commenting below, and I'll pick three random winners by next week. (And I'll ship anywhere, so bring it, internationals.)

Happy commenting!
 ****

UPDATE: The give-away has ended, and our winners are Scrivvet, Seungmina, and Hello Haha Narf!

Congrats, winners, and please e-mail me your choice of art from my Pinterest give-away board (along with a 2nd choice, just in case) and your mailing address!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Gonna miss Egon :( I want the ponies!

    ReplyDelete
  4. My friend's birthday is coming up, and I see a few on the board that she would love! Normally I'm an art hoarder, but if I win, I might give one to her.

    ReplyDelete
  5. So...adorable....
    You're a hazard to my wallet my dear hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh that last painting is making my computer screen blurry (it's not my eyes, I'm not crying, nope not me) :(

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love all the art work! And Bianca Roman-Stumpff is SO NICE. I've ordered one of her mdf puff monsters, and had a custom commissioned bear painting of my favorite Mass Effect picture. She always puts in a little note, and drew an extra little Mass Effect bear for me.

    I'd love to win some art! The MLP print and the harley one are both awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  8. There's so many adorable pieces in this roundup; I love it! Although, the last one is heartbreaking. Wonderfully sweet, but heartbreaking. :(

    ReplyDelete
  9. Oh my goodness - would love to win! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. These are great! The wonder woman piece is so amazing!

  13. Yay, art!

    Gotta get that Dr. Chew / Whobacca for my son.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Whoops, sorry! DOCTOR Chew, not Dr. Chew. My son would be so embarrassed!

      AND, I just noticed that it's no longer available. Well, jeez, Jen. Take it down. Quit teasing us. ;-P

      I'm sure we'll be able to find something else for the kiddo on the board though. He will definitely have a hard time selecting one from all that fabulous art.

      I made the 15th comment on this post, and he was born on a 15th, so it's our lucky day! Right? Wooo-hooo!

      Thanks for doing the art roundups and the giveaways! You're a superhero!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love them all, though that last one was a kick to the heart-muscle. I am seriously in LOVE with that Harley painting though (the first one. Also the second one. ;) )

    ReplyDelete
  20. Like always, I love these posts because I get to discover new art that I never would have found myself.

    Charles Thurston was at a con that I went to earlier this month, and my husband and I walked away with a few of his Doctor Who/Disney prints along with two of his booklets.

    ReplyDelete
  21. love all these!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm in. The adorable baby Harley makes me want to have a kid just so I can hang that in a nursery!

    That Egon print is so sad, but so good. Everyone I know was saddened by that news yesterday.

    ReplyDelete
  23. "With enough thrust, pigs fly just fine." Count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm seeing lots of touching artwork for the departed Egon. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153857741880585&set=a.10151096887075585.779905.716575584&type=1&theater

  25. The ones painted on comic books are amazing. If I won, I think I'd let my 9 year old pick his favorite but I'm not sure he'll be able to choose. The giveaway board has so many awesome things right now..

  27. I have to convince my husband to let me get the pink steampunk flying pig print for our daughter's nursery. When we were first dating he got me a flying pig key chain from Cincinnati, and it is now the centerpiece of our daughter's mobile over her crib.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, those My Little Ponies are so sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The baby Harley is so cute! But I think my husband would love the Batman! But I also want Merida!

    AHHH!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I wish I had enough money to buy all of the Charles Thurston's kids books!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. Not gonna lie- that MLP print made me squee.

    ReplyDelete

  38. Please please please?!?! I'd so love the little ponies!!!

    ReplyDelete

  52. Love Spengler... and the MLPs?! OMG

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm hoping the Merida print is never taken so I can still hold out hope for it! There is a spot on my wall waiting for her.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm not specifically a huge Ghostbusters fan (I enjoy it just not one of the things I'm obsessive about) but since yesterday I've seen some lovely pieces of art saying goodbye to a talented man.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  58. You had me at steampunk flying piggy! Squeee!!! But really, that little Robot ACEO by Katie Cook is calling my name. More specifically, my 8 month old daughter's (who has robots all over her nursery) name ;)

    ReplyDelete
  62. The Star Wars/It's A Small World is a favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Thanks so much for doing these roundups. I've found wonderful stuff for my son's room this way… and since I no longer have the copious amounts of free time to browse the intertubez that I used to, because of said toddler's constant need to be taken care of, this is like the only way I find cool new art to keep my checking account from getting nice and fat. So… yay…?

    ReplyDelete
  64. You always manage to find the most interesting art, and the most touching. Egon was always my fave 'Buster. *sniffle*

    ReplyDelete
  65. I "stop by" for a smile... and I am never disappointed. Thanks, Jen (and John). :-)

    ReplyDelete
  66. It's so handy that we have similar taste in art, if occasionally tough on my budget. Thanks for finding all of these!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I really enjoy the round-ups. Hope I am selected but I don't think I could choose just one.

    ReplyDelete
