Announcement   Where'd the bottle cap images go? Don't worry, they're now available for FREE on our Facebook Page at http://facebook.com/oddbound . Just look for the photo album - you'll find them all. So what's here now? A new endeavor mixing writing, art, poetry and crafts.

It was time to shake things up, go out on a limb, combine all my creative loves into one, and do something that borders on crazy! Odd Bound is a unique and experimental way of telling the story of a group of fictional poets. Instead of writing one novel, the story of the Odd Bound poets is gradually revealed through their poetry, books, stories, and other creative expressions. They are not bound together between the covers of a single book.

The narrative of their lives is documented in the work that each character produces. It’s in the poems they publish in literary journals, their books, and even in the objects they make and sell in the Odd Bound shop.

In a sense, it is a story that has leaped off of the page and into reality all in an attempt to bring you back to the page.

Confused? Don't worry, I got confused too. It's not easy to explain, but if you follow along on our Facebook page, you'll eventually get it. Maybe. If nothing else you can grab the bottle cap images for free there.

You won't find anymore bottle cap images in my shop anymore. It was a wonderful couple of years, but it's time for me to focus on my own hand drawn work. Unlike the bottle caps that were a mix of public domain and my own - the work you find in my shop now is all completely my own creation...finally, I had the guts to do something that's just my own! No more digital items either. It's all print on paper. And with that, the new shop name too.

There's something magical that appears when you let go of intention and stop worrying about "how it should be done." My prints come from ink drawings that I do on blank 4x6 notepad pages. There’s no sketching, penciling, or planning. The ink hits the paper and whatever happens is what happens. Then I scan the drawings into the computer. Okay, yes, I do print some of the scanned images to 8.5” x 11 paper and add lettering and borders and then scan the modified version in, but that’s pretty much the only alterations I make to the original ink drawing. And of course, I hand color some of the printed images which makes each colored image completely unique.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
Payments: All payments are through PayPal. You don’t need a PayPal account.
Etsy payment and gift cards will soon be accepted.
Shipping
Orders ship within business days via USPS. I pack as carefully as possible for safe arrival.
Refunds and Exchanges
Replacements will be sent for items that arrive damaged. Please, please see the “Imperfections you should expect” list below since none of the imperfections on the list will qualify the item as damaged. If you receive an item with damages (not counting imperfections listed) just let me know so I can send a replacement.

I do not take responsibility for any buyer’s remorse. If your order arrives and you suddenly change your mind and decide you don’t want it - you now have a birthday, Christmas, or other holiday gift to give to someone you know. I’m not a giant company like Wal-Mart that can afford to eat the cost of your indecisiveness. You can still contact me. I might be in a good mood, but don’t count on it.

If you get the item and it is absolutely not what you were thinking it would be, contact me and we’ll see what we can work out. But, the pictures are pretty clear. It’s kind of obvious that it’s a piece of paper with ink and in the case of hand colored works, it has hand coloring on it. So, there’s not a whole lot of confusion to be had about what it is you’re buying. I want you to be happy with your purchase and am willing to work with you, however my good nature will only go so far. (There are some people on this planet that will never be happy with anything. If you are one of those people, I beg of you, do not buy anything from my shop. I would much rather spend my time with people that I can make happy.)

Imperfections You Should Expect:
- The colors on your screen will not match the exact color of the paper or artwork. It’s a close match, but certainly not identical.
- The paper I use has it’s own natural imperfections. Colored papers will have variations in color saturation and maybe even a fuzzy speckle or little white dot. Craft paper is king of imperfection, that’s why it’s so darn beautiful.
- The tips of the corners are very shy. They sometimes crinkle in a teeny tiny bit. Only an itsy bitsy bit. It’s a little imperfection that will be hidden when framed.
- Expect water colored works to have a little bit of wave to the paper. Water does that. It likes to make waves. It’ll should flatten out just fine when framed. We’re not talking tsunami. More like a little ripple in a still pond.
- Each piece is manually fed into a laser printer. I guess I’m a little crooked cause nothing goes through perfectly straight. For most pictures, you’d never know. But ones that run to the edge might be a tad off. It gets hidden when framed. You probably wouldn’t even notice it, but I pay way too much attention to details.

All my art prints and cards are my own original drawings.
