print pre-sale

What does pre-sale mean?  It means the painting is finished, but the prints have not been made yet.  It also means that you get a hefty discount.  By purchasing a pre-sale print, your helping me to start producing them.  It takes quite a bit of money upfront to make the prints and package them.

limited edition prints

A limited edition print is a print that is only produced so many times.  After it reaches it's designated limit, it is done, and never produced again.  An artist can select any limit they want.  The lower the limit, the more valuable the print is assumed to be.  Personally, I always stick with limits of 250 per size, per print.  This means I make 250 small prints, 250 medium prints, and 250 large prints.  And, when I say I make the prints, I truly mean I make them.  There's a real craftsmanship to printing them yourself, and I so enjoy the the hands on participation in producing each and every print form start to beginning.

paper and ink

Quality supplies will extend the life of your print.  Strangers is printed on Epson's hot press fine art paper in a bright finish, which offers a luxurious weight and feel.  Only Epson inks are used.

certificate of authenticity

Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity, which details basic information about the print and original, such as dimensions, materials, and number.  Each certificate is signed and numbered by me.

informational card

An information card accompanies each print and aims to provide a glimpse at what I was thinking in the moment of creation.  It also includes a short bio as well as a favorite quote of mine.

 

 

BLOG POST:

As you can see, this is my first substantial blog post.  So, first thing first: I vow to be transparent. 

Since have somehow miraculously made it to this page, I assume you either follow me on Instagram or Facebook, because lets be honest, my SEO game is not up to par (if you came across this page some other way, I'd truly love to hear from you in the comments!).  I assume that you already know a little about me, and that I am an artist in Anchorage, Alaska.  What you may not know though, is that I am trying to make my way down to the continental United States to try my hand at other art shows.  The largest show I participate in in Alaska is my beloved Forest Fair.  It is a three-day show that takes place in Girdwood, Alaska over the Fourth of July weekend.  About 10,000 people attended last year.  I recently applied for a show in San Diego (and got in, yay!).  It attracts about 90,000 potential customers.  Another show I'll be applying for soon, gets 150,000.  I can't even imagine what 150,000 people, all in one place, looks like.

This, of course, costs a lot of money up front.  Application fees, booth space fees, printing costs, shipping costs, airfare, lodging, and car rentals all add up to... a lot (and that's not even all of the expenses!).  I need to make quite a bit of money, and fast.  I work full time, Monday through Friday, eight to five.  I'll get a second job if I have to, but doing so takes time away from that which could be spent making art.  I've gone through my house to see what I can get rid of, and I've listed a few things on eBay.  I'm running out of ideas to make quick cash.

 

the title of this post is quite fitting, I believe.  You and I are most likely strangers.  I look forward to hearing from you and becoming friends, but until then, we're strangers.  The first picture completed in this collections of mine, is titled Strangers.
