Meet Valerie with Tugboat Printshop! You are going to be blown away at these enormous woodcut prints. The world is filled with so much digital are that it's refreshing when you see something made entirely by hand. How did art play into your childhood? What kind of art did you like to make as a kid?   Always been a maker/tinkerer--pretty much inspired to do & create since I can remember. As a kid I built forts out of everything, braided grasses, made crayon & pencil drawings, cut paper, paper mached, sewed; I liked to make plays with my sisters...

Featured Artist: Mike Lowery!

Mike Lowery has the best job in the world and has arranged his universe to be the envy of, let's see,... everyone. He travels and draws. His doodles have caught the attention of some pretty major companies including;  Hallmark, Random House, Nick Jr magazine, American Greetings, Disney, as well as many Graphic Design and Advertising Agencies. Literally yesterday I was at my son's school and in the break room I saw a pile of colorfully printed napkins with these great illustrations on them and I instantly recognized them as Mike's work.

I've been glued to David Terrill's work for some time. His art has an electric vibe, like a living thing that's always in motion. The colors and bizarre use of shapes grab you and reel you in.

It's like she lives on the Island of Misfit Toys but instead of being sad about it like the toys in the old stop-motion Rudolf movie, she feels right at home there. You'll see from this interview that Shari is a rebel. She's let go of any ego and has embraced a life others can't quite grasp. Money has a tight grip on most of the people in the world and it dictates what we do with our lives. Shari...

I met Guy Francis when I saw this amazing watercolor online of a Tusken Raider with a popsicle. I commented on his post and we talked back and forth and worked a deal where I could own it. I gave him my address to ship it and then I realized I would soon be driving right by his hometown. He was nice enough to let me swing by his home and pick it up and meet him in person. I soon discovered that Guy is one of the nicest human beings on planet Earth. His wife and kids all fall into that same category. I was able...
