Andy Kehoe: "Thou Shalt Not Treat People Like Dirt"
A cool-ass belated birthday gift from Jen, our erstwhile sales slinger here at Splashworks.com. The print comes from Tiny ShowCase, a site that sells limited edition prints of works that are small in stature but big on beauty. Check out this print from Andy Kehoe...now I just gotta get me a frame. From the website:
"Each week we are going to pick a new piece of tiny artwork. The digital artwork reproduction braintrust at io labs, inc. in Providence, Rhode Island then takes that masterpiece and turns it into a limited-run print production. Each run is printed on 310gsm acid-free Hahnemühle German Etching Paper. It's UltraChrome ink is specially treated and sprayed, giving it an archival lifespan of over 60 years.
You sort of need to see the end product to get the full effect, but each piece really is a beautiful specimen.
Beginning on August 23, 2005 - the half year anniversary of Tiny Showcase, we introduced a new pricing structure where a percentage of the money from each print sold is donated to a charity chosen by the artist. This raises the print price slightly, but now the artist, as well as their favorite charity, benefit from each piece sold."
So support indy art, get yerself sumpin' unique (o.k., unique-ish...it IS a print after all. Quality is phenomenal, BTW) for the wall, and support a charity to boot. Sounds like win, win, freakin' win ta me! The url:
