On Etsy since 2006

Obsolete World

In 2005 I was working at a record store in Seattle. I had been working retail ever since I dropped out of art school in the mid-nineties and after a decade of working to pay back that one year of college I was dreaming of an escape. I pretty much lived exclusively for the nightly retreats to my decrepit drafting table where I was free to spend hours hiding away in a vivid watercolor washed world surrounded by the warmth and comfort of my unusual creations. After years of existing like this I eventually gained the courage to take a chance and quit my day job to pursue my art full-time. "Obsolete World" is a name that was originally taken from the 1961 Twilight Zone episode “The Obsolete Man” where in a future totalitarian state, Burgess Meredith’s character (a librarian) is a man put on trial for the crime of being obsolete. I had always loved that episode and I pictured a similar scenario in which the make-believe creatures of childhood suffer a similar “crime” as one grows old. I took to the task of conserving these victims of consequence and created “Obsolete World” as a place where my own creations could safely while away the hours.

Cancellations: not accepted

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.


I accept payment via all major credit cards as well as Paypal.


I ship directly through Etsy via USPS First Class and Priority depending on the size and weight of the package.
Please allow 3-7 days from the date of purchase for your order to ship. I print as I receive orders and it takes a few days for the colors to set. I ship to the address listed on your Etsy account unless otherwise noted. I will gladly discount shipping if you live in Oregon. Etsy doesn't have a way of dividing shipping state by state and most of the time it costs less to ship locally. Just send a message my way with the subject "shipping" for local inquiries.

***IMPORTANT***FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: International print orders have a 2 to 4 week estimated delivery time depending on how long it takes to clear customs. I cannot offer tracking on print orders as I ship with USPS first class international shipping, however, I would be happy to upgrade your shipping to Priority International if you would like to pay the difference. Priority rates start at $35.00.
I ship through Etsy and "merchandise" automatically prints on the customs label, so I cannot mark your item as a "gift".
***Please understand, taxes, customs charges and other import fees are the responsibility of the purchaser. Unfortunately, I am unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied. You can get an estimate of what they might be by using the duty calculator at this link: https://www.simplyduty.com/

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. Thank you!
