This is a sampling of a new Art-o-mat® series I am hoping to get approved.
They are little "portraits" in colored pencil on MDF. I made the little hanger on the back out of wire. Some of the designs are scaled down versions of ceramic tiles I made, others are new. Most of the animals will be either plain or drinking coffee.
I am having to shelve the "Tunnel Vision" series (for now) because I am having production problems with it. I am not abandoning that series, just setting it aside for a while. I am not really much of a paper "engineer" and it takes me ALL day/night to complete a tunnel. I keep messing up the alignment of the windows. I am not very skilled at measuring and although I enjoy repetition, I am finding it very difficult to get it right...but I will eventually.
In the meantime, I am hopeful to do the little portraits. I need to think of a name for the series. I am really wiped out tonight and perhaps not explaining things well, but here is a sampling nonetheless. (Oooh...there is that word again!)
I started this series at Christmastime, not intending them for Art-o-mat®, and I sold a number of them...they seemed pretty popular. Now, with the Tunnel Vision series on hold, I need something to fill its place for my blogging efforts (and to help replenish my stock at AIC).
Oh yay...Clark just emailed me back...he said "yes"! I apologize, but I am too sleepy to rewrite and update this post...so this version will just have to do. Nighty night!
