(192)

Announcement   Coastal and Beach art, illustration, photography, and graphic design prints, art panels, and other gifts. Everything is designed in my studio here in Carolina Beach, NC.

Free shipping on all prints, which ship separately from other items to protect them from damage. Multiple prints will ship together. All my prints are sized so that you can buy frames from just about anywhere for them, however, I recommend taking larger prints to a professional, independent picture framer who will know how to protect your new art, and you're doing more for your local economy than taking it to a "big box" craft store.

If you're interested in any of my originals, or if you'd like to have my highly trusted, and sought-after picture framer do up a piece just for you, convo me BEFORE purchase, and we can talk specifics.

Is adorable. Can't wait to put it in our house on the river! Can't find many items for the river...most things are for the beach or the lake. Will definitely buy from this shop again!

The 4x6 prints work very well in 5x7 frames and mattes. Check out my Etsy Local schedule and you can actually buy the framed photos for $15 right from me!
Here's just one idea of what can be done with my prints. Convo me if you'd like one, this one will be available at my next event this coming weekend. Light cream matte, reverse bevel cut for the images.
A new batch of prints just came in for my show in two weeks including a huge panoramic which I just signed!

About

A Boy and His Imagination

Like many artsy folks, I've been creating and designing pieces for a long time, but I've only recently gathered the courage to make any of them available for sale. Most of my work is created digitally, beginning with a blank space, a graphics tablet, and an idea.

My process usually involves sketches and notes made in a small book that I keep with me at all times. Even if you meet me on the street, or on the way to the post office, I'll have my notebook in a pocket, ready to receive whatever scribbles my brain desires. I'm a firm believer in the idea that the brain is designed to create, design, and problem-solve, but it's really not meant to actively store a lot of information.

I then scan an image from my notebook into my computer, and use it as a reference point, building up layers of colors and shapes to get the final design. This process and the programs I use change depending on the look I'm going for, but for most of the time, I've found Adobe Photoshop to be a very capable program once you know how to create and configure brushes and patterns in it. On rare occasions I will use some filters or a plug-in, but tend to stay away from them if I can truly help it.

I also like to take photographs, and have begun including those for sale as well. You'll notice a growing number are beach and coast-related, and that's because I moved to the Wilmington/Pleasure Island, North Carolina area in May of 2014, and am really smitten with the creative energy and vibrant arts community here.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I can create a custom piece especially for you. It can either be an original piece or based upon one of my existing designs. Convo me, and let's talk!

Print vs Monitor Color

The color in your items may differ slightly from photos due to different monitor settings. I've worked with digital printing since 2004, and what you receive from my workshop studio is always the intended color result. I have very high standards, and nothing leaves this workshop if it doesn't meet them.

Can I give you a coupon code after I place my order?

If I'm running a sale, you must enter the coupon code during your order as required by the Etsy website to receive the discount. Current coupon codes/sales are always listed in the shop announcements under the banner image, and in my newsletter, which you can sign up for at: http://eepurl.com/3VgeH (don't worry, I hate spam as much as you!)

Do you offer international shipping?

Yes, I ship all over the world. Customers are responsible for all fees and tariffs. I list the full retail value of your order on the customs forms. Int'l shipping can be very expensive, and it almost impossible to calculate ahead of time. Please convo me BEFORE you order and I will gladly provide a quote and custom listing for your order with exact shipping amounts.
