Ordered this print and print no. 27. Both arrived quickly, expertly packaged and undamaged. Both prints are on good quality, white paper and thoroughly meet the expectations I had when I set out looking for Rorschach ink blots as art over a year ago. It took me forever to find her Rorschach ink blots, but I'm glad I took my time searching because these are exactly what I wanted – they look great and serve as an awesome conversation starter with guests.

The seller was very helpful and shipped the three prints promptly. The prints look great and are printed on nice paper. One note: I chose to put the prints in a matted 16X20 frame. The precut mats at Michael’s fit two of my prints, but not this one because the ink blot is larger than the other two I purchased. I had the custom shop cut mats so they would all be the same and the cost was almost 4X as much. This is no reflection on the seller, just something to consider if you plan to mat them.

About

My creative life journey

I’m thrilled to know that everyone who displays my Rorschach inspired artwork knows they are getting a unique piece worthy of Rorschach himself.

Before I created RubyMoon Art, I was randomly producing art without a cohesive theme.

Then one year at Christmas, I couldn’t find a unique gift for my brother, a psychologist. I was searching the internet for something handmade, unique and something he was unlikely to buy himself. I found nothing.

So, I set out to create that perfect gift!

I decided to create the most intriguing psychology related artwork for the most discerning psychology enthusiast in the world.

It turns out, that task was more difficult than I imagined.

Drawing artistic diagrams of the frontal cortex is insanely difficult. Making typography prints of psychology related words didn’t translate well. I learned I can’t draw aesthetically pleasing pictures of the brain. No matter how many images I looked at or how many descriptions I read in books, I don’t understand the brain enough to draw it! Many typography mock ups were created and I found that the words were too long and not many people outside the field understood the art.

I kept brainstorming and came across Rorschach’s work. Hermann Rorschach developed a method of analyzing the subject’s interpretation of the inkblots to assess the subject’s personality & emotional characteristics. Seemingly random, but symmetrical blobs of ink were shown to the subjects and a response was requested by the tester, then interpreted to analyze the subject’s state of mind.

I spent many months teaching myself the technique to create images that were inspired by Rorschach and finally learned to produce the perfect images for my art. Many, many sheets of paper and bottles of ink were used to perfect the process. The images I create must have some recognizable traits; such as it looks like an insect or zombie, while still remaining abstract and slightly unrecognizable. Friends and family were quizzed and “tested” the images prior to my launch.

I feared all this work would just result in the single gift that I set out to create. However, the feedback I received was so encouraging and positive that I released the artwork to my shop and the response has been fantastic.
