Okay…bit more interest in $5 prints than I expected! (Not that that’s a bad thing!)
So! Following a few more hours spent in the kitchen, sweating and cursing and hammering on stuff with a wooden spoon, the Exclamatory Chicken will be available in an edition of 30. Every available surface in my miniscule kitchen is covered in chicken, and I am rapidly realizing that the reason printmakers do limited runs is because there’s a definite point where you never, ever, ever want to see a particular image again.
For $5, you get a signed and numbered print on…well, on whatever media it’s on. (Seems to be mostly various watercolor paper, acid free matboard scrap, and a few other random things. Pretty sure it’s all archivalish though.) (If you’re international and in a first world country, call it $9–otherwise send me an e-mail and we’ll see what we can do.) They’re 3 x 5 on everything from 4 x 6 to 6 x 8, but generally in the 5 x 7 range, so if you wanted to frame it, you can probably use a pre-cut 4 x 6 mat.
Because these are hand-printed, there are flaws. I’m only selling ones that look pretty good, but you do get white spots and washy bits and the occasional fingerprint and touch-up spots and all kinds of things that say “Yo, this was made by hand.” I sweated and cursed over every one. Sometimes at great length.
Since I need a coupla these for gifts, and to replace any that might get damaged in mailing, I’ll be selling 25 of ’em. I guess we’ll do it first come, first serve–you want a chicken, post here, and the first 25 get ’em.
If you don’t get a print, but wanted one, I’ll A) be auctioning off 1/30, and B) I still have another linoblock, and since I’ve yet to master the art form, AND I’m a fan of making art available cheap to people who want to start collecting but have a half-shoestring budget, I suspect I may offer another $5 print run in the future.
If you’ve posted in the first 25, send an e-mail, I take Paypal, check, money order, etc, and we’re all good.
(Mckenzee, no need to post–we’ll do a trade! Although yours are cooler than mine, so you may have to get a print or a sketch something, or I’ll feel all guilty.)
ORDERS ARE NOW CLOSED!
Okay, that’s all of ’em–most posters got in, except for the bottom four–sorry, laigaiem, ceosanna, quinetessialp and madfishmonger. Next time!
