Des Plaines, Illinois 107 Sales On Etsy since 2013

5 out of 5 stars
(18)

Announcement   I specialize in truly hand-crafted wood-burning and type-print designs.

My passions are geeky pyrography and typography. My enthusiasms include Doctor Who, Tolkien, Game of Thrones, Studio Ghibli, and old-school Nintendo. I also create original art.

I also make custom paper products using an antique typewriter, including greeting cards and business cards.

Some wood-burnings you see on Etsy are done by computers and lasers, but everything I do is lovingly made by hand.

Think you can't afford something? Message me and I'll see if we can work something out. I'm willing to offer discounts and/or trades. Want a custom item? I can probably do it!

I also run THE TBD (http://thetbd.etsy.com), where I sell digital design oriented products.

About

Real is a thing that happens to you

I grew up very focused on the realm of the intangible. I watched a lot of television, played a lot of video games, and spent a lot of time on the internet. I hid in books and studies of the abstract.

But as I grew up, I felt drawn to the material. The physical world had a soul that the digital world did not. Most of my skills needed a computer to exercise. I began to envy those whose talents translated into something you could hold in your hand and keep forever.

I worked at building artistic ability from nothing. It was a long time before I made anything I was proud of. But it began happening more often when I discovered pyrography, the art of wood burning. Wood--the smell, the texture, the weight of it--inspires me. I kept the fascinations I grew up with--video games, technology, and fantasy novels. But I started translating them into the land of the real.

I hope that you find something in my shop to help make your home a warmer place.
