On Etsy since 2010

Prioritize Your Obsessions ... it’s the statement that started it all.

Hello, my name is Doc Martin and I am an artist, photographer, designer, illustrator and interior stylist. My wife is always reminding me to "Prioritize My Obsessions" because there seems to be no limit to the things I want to accomplish creatively on a daily basis. So I took her advice and started The Groovy Grotto Studio here on Etsy!

I feel very fortunate, because I am able to be creative for a living. In my day job, I am the art director and all around "Jack-of-All" for an automotive design firm. On any given day you will find me designing products like custom wheels, apparel or even watches! I am also the firms photographer, web designer, and graphic artist! (whew....I am tired just thinking about all of that.)

My creative obsessions tend to drift away from the technical side of things when I am away from the “day job”. I created The Groovy Grotto Studio as an outlet where my interests in Tiki, Mid Century Modern, Nautical and vintage Polynesian Pop, Photography, and Vintage Americana are filtered through a prismatic funnel of bombastic zen to produce my "Media Graffiti" style art and home decor. My goal is to create artwork and decor that will look great LARGE and will make a BOLD statement when added to any room.

In my small but efficient studio, I personally conceptualize, create, pack and ship every order. Wearing so many hats at once, I sometimes feel like an army of one!

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. - Make sure to stop by and visit my sister store Media Graffiti Studio, here on etsy. It is where you will find my Pop Culture inspired artwork.

Here is the skinny kiddies!:

What you see is what you get .... (I hope)

I have been doing this for many years and I would like to believe that all of my prints will come out exactly as you see it on "your screen". But I realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or in this case...the monitor. Please keep in mind that I work diligently to make sure that the colors you are looking at on your computer screen are as close to the original piece of artwork as possible. But all monitors are not created equal and this may lead to slight differences in the brightness or richness of what you initially see. Rest assured though, I spend quite a bit of time making sure that every print is spectacular and that I will never ship you a print that isn't 100% accurate in the color richness and clarity that I had intended.

Returns and exchange details
Yeah but what if.....

Well, it happens. Maybe your dog attacks the mail man and chomps through your package before you even open it? Or it sat outside in the rain or the snow before you got to it? (Hey, it could happen?!) Or maybe you only love it 99% instead of the 110% that you did when you made your purchase? Well, don't worry about it. Just drop me a quick note and let me know what your concern is and I will do everything I can to turn that frown upside-down!
Shipping
Will my item be coming via Pony Express or Snail Mail?....

Pony express of course! Or the modern equivalent, which would be USPS for most orders within the United States. USPS mail service usually runs 2-3 days. In addition I am printing daily, so in most cases your item will ship out within 48 hours upon receipt of payment.

Larger pieces such as oversized posters or canvas prints will be shipped via USPS or FedEx Ground and will be fully insured. Please allow at least 3 business days for production of these larger items.
Additional policies and FAQs

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer digital downloads of your art?

I am sorry, but I do not currently offer digital downloads of my illustrations.

Do you offer custom framing?

I do not offer custom framing for prints. Any images shown within the listing that are in a frame are there for reference only. The exception to this would be that I do offer "Framed Canvas Prints". Please look for the link within each listing description that will take you to that listing in my shop.

Do you offer any custom sizes not shown in your store?

Yes. The sizes currently shown in my store are the most popular and are generally pretty easy to have framed. If you have a specific need for VERY LARGE or oddly sized artwork, then please reach out to me with the specifics of your request and I will reply with a quote for that service.

Do you offer express shipping options?

I currently print and ship most orders within 24 hours. If you have a specific need for Express or Next Day shipping, please reach out to me BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER and let me know what exactly you need. I will then supply you with a shipping quote for that service.

Can I come to your studio and pick my order up?

My studio is not open to the public and I am unable to accept requests for Pick Up. All orders will be shipped only.

Wholesale availability

Parties interested in Wholesale availability should contact me for more information. Please let me know quantities, sizes, and materials (paper, canvas, metal) you are interested in. I would also need to know if this is for a Retail (Brick and Mortar) or Online Store.

Do you take requests for custom orders?

I put custom requests into two different catagories:

1) Personalizing Existing Art
If you would like to have an existing illustration modified or personalized please feel free to ask. Most requests for color changes or adding of text can be accommodated. Extensive changes to existing artwork can be looked at on a case by case basis and may incur extra charges.

2) Custom Order Requests
From time to time, I am able to accept custom order requests. If you would like a quote for a custom illustration please send me a note explaining exactly what you need. Include the size wanted, material preferred, and the date you would need it completed. I will then get back to you with a quote and an estimated timetable.
