The Doodle -a- Day Project
If you have been following me on Facebook you would already know that my Ink Art project started out as an exploration into my own style of doodles and developing them into mini works of art.
Each gridded piece is about 3″x5″, the rest are about 5″x7″. Created with the use of ink pens & Chaos. Inspired by the line drawings of my brother, the doodles from my youth (in school and in the margins of classwork), and the natural flow of creating doodles I began the project I call, Doodle -a- Day. I attempt to complete an ink drawing once per day but sometimes life gets in the way and this doesn’t always happen. These mini works of art also function as a form of art therapy & meditation (because as we all know artists are crazy). I endeavor to create diverse styles of ink art that are a mixture of black & white, color, pattern, shading, repeated shapes, squiggles, and much more. I have organized my doodles into four categories, Portraits, Nature, Mandalas & Spirals, and Abstract.
Helping Animals in Need
I am an animal lover as well as an artist and because of this I’ve decided to use my artistic skills to help out animals in need. This takes the form of donating 20% of the profits from each reproduction sold to one or more animal welfare organization. I also donate custom pet portraits to animal rescues for fundraising.
For 2013 I donated to two No-Kill Animal Sanctuaries: The Seattle Humane Society and Best Friends Animal Society.
Giclées, Prints, Reproductions
I sell reproductions of both my Ink Art and Colored Pencil Art.
I use a single Seattle-based company to both scan my ink artwork and to make my wonderful reproductions. A truly beautiful reproduction always begins with high resolution scanning. The scan must be pretty much perfect or it won’t be capable of making a high quality reproduction. During the scanning process the scan is color corrected to match the original. When placed side by side it is near impossible to tell the original from the reproduction.
Each giclée print comes in its own archival sleeve and with its own archival backing board (not mounted). This ensures that each reproduction stays flat and is protected throughout the entire order process.
Please visit my Ink Art Shop and you’ll be sure to find something you’ll love!
I generally don’t post my originals for sale but I will consider requests.
Greeting Cards & Other Merchandise
It is an on-going project to develop other products with my artwork.
Please visit my Zazzle Store for my Colored Pencil Art gifts.
