Hello, Hello, and welcome to oil and blue.

I work, I write, I cook, I sleep, I freelance, and on really good days I spend all of my time with my favorite person in the world and our two strange cats.

Oil & Blue: strange name, I know. Long story short, the Man was in the no-job-boat after college as many others were and ended up on the maintenance crew in a plastics molding factory. One day, one of the machines sort of exploded, covering him in motor oil and blue dye. It was such a funny image and the name just stuck. It's nothing deep or artsy, but it makes me smile.

These prints are all original designs by me. I make them using Microsoft Word when I have down time between meetings and tasks as my happy little creative escape from work. I like the challenge of using such a low-tech medium for making digital art. Hope that you enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them!

Hello! and welcome to oilandblue,

I am a designer based in the landlocked portion of the states. I love to design clean and simple lines and I love unique vintage finds. I've combined these two loves in one place just for you. Happy hunting!
