Sunset Needle – Music Inspired

Here’s a new one in the music inspired series. Sunset needle. Get a print HERE.

This is a series of artwork including type, portraits, and paintings that are inspired by music and musicians. If you’re an avid fan of any genre of music I hope you make you smile. I definitely love making them. 
If you missed the last one I made check it out here: 45’s record adaptors 

 

45’s – Music Inspired

 

Saw a design in an hgtv magazine and got inspired to make this. Two 45 adapter’s for that music lover in you, your partner, or best friend. Look out for post cards of this image coming soon.

Did you catch the painting of a Shekere
Here’s a little more info:
This one is for the music lovers. It doesn’t matter which genre, as long as music is something you can’t get through the day without. Could be for musicians or the fans. The image represents two 45 adapters. These adapters are used to secure and play 45 rpm records. I chose these colors because they are complementary and I love the color the overlay of them creates. check out some of my other “Music Inspired” drawings and paintings.


New self portrait!

 

Happy 2021 folks. I’m excited to share this new self portrait with you and ready to bob and weave in the new year. As I do most years I’ll be using this for my branding on my social media and sites. Want to see past painted self portraits? See below. This one was painted in gouache.
Look out for a post about branding images and business cards soon.

Africana Studies Print

 

Peace, I’m so excited to introduce this new piece to you “Africana Studies”. This is a print featuring that phrase and an antique afro pick. The origin of the idea comes from Black, African American, African studies departments in colleges. I hope this print can apply to high schools one day as well, but this is basically an attempt to make a beautiful and affirming decoration for an office, classroom, or building that specializes in the study of Black culture. It could totally be in a home or bedroom but my aim is to reach educators specifically with this whether they be in a larger “Ethnic Studies” department or a sole focus of study at their institution.


Series: This print will be a part of a series of new prints focusing on Black, Asian, Raza, Indigenous studies or programs from an Ethnic Studies program. Stay tuned.

Did you see the “Ethnic Studies” print pack w/ stickers?
