About

Monster Love.

The unusual. The unlikely. The unique.
After working 30+ years creating art for other folks in the fields of Illustration and Graphic Design, I finally got the opportunity to create for myself. The monsters were waiting -- ready to leap forth and escape the limited confines of my head and venture out into the unsuspecting world of people. Guardian Monsters, Baby Monsters, Midnight Monsters - you name it - they all came pouring out, happily splattering their likenesses across my drawing paper. My problem was NOT in finding enough to draw, but rather keeping "them" under control, allowing them to step politely into existence, a few at a time, instead of bursting forth and knocking me senseless in the process. It was not easy.

"Guardian Monsters" were created to assist children (and adults) with problems, boost confidence, promote compassion and just plain make them laugh. Each of the 26 Guardian Monsters has a set of Protective and Beneficial Powers which are unique. These powers range from “Grump Projection” (yes, that is a real power) to “Compassion Reaction.” The list is quite diverse.

Using monster art as my tool, I hope to create a love of reading, writing & creative thinking. Using humor, I hope to generate ideas for out-of-the-box problem solving as well as encourage compassion, understanding & appreciation, especially when relating to others who don't look, sound or act exactly like we do.

Thanks so much for visiting my shop and meeting me and my monsters! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. If I don't have an answer, I'll be happy to make something up! :-)

    I am an illustrator, graphic artist and website designer, in that order. I've been drawing, painting and making some kind of art since I was too little to know what I was getting myself into. Monsters are my current passion.

Shop policies

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to carefully read my shop policies.

I am both honored and grateful that something I have created may become a part of your or your family and friends personal art collection. Every original piece of unique art is hand drawn and made with great care and attention to detail. To make my work affordable (each piece takes a long time to create) I offer open edition reproduction prints, which I personally print on my professional quality Epson Stylus Pro 3880. Each print is individually printed on Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Paper with a matte finish, using Epson Ultra Chrome K3 ink technology, which is optimized to resist fading for generations. Epson pigment inks provide professional quality in crisp detail and saturated color.

I also offer to personalize and customize certain pieces like room signs, name signs and monograms which takes a bit of extra time, depending on the project. I will make every effort to complete your art in a timely fashion and let you know (via Etsy Convo) if there is something you need to review or the minute your order ships. Shipping normally takes from between 2-5 business days. My greatest wish is for you to not only love your prints but feel that the whole process from start to finish was done in a friendly and professional manner.

CONTACT:
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I would love to hear from you! Just send me an Etsy Convo or e-mail me directly at: gretchen.deahl [!at] gmail.com.

----------------------------------------------

SALES TAX:
Unfortunately, Pennsylvania, Allegheny County and Philadelphia County have additional sales tax rates, which became effective October 8, 2009.
As a result:
PA State residents ONLY must add 6% sales tax.
PA State/Allegheny County residents ONLY must add a 7% sales tax.
PA State/Philadelphia County residents ONLY must add an 8% sales tax.
Shipping
IMPORTANT: "Shipping with another item" applies only to similar items. Print and Print; Poster and Poster etc...
(In other words, you can't by a 8.5 x 11" PRINT first and get a POSTER second, using the button's shipping profile. The shipping profile for the LARGEST item applies before any additional discount. I hope you understand why. Please feel free to contact me about this if you have any questions. :-)
===================================================
Within the US and Canada, I ship USPS First class and USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. For International shipping, I use USPS International EXPRESS Delivery with Delivery Confirmation.
===================================================
IMPORTANT: INTERNATIONAL shipping requires individual pricing, depending upon the final destination. Please send me a Convo BEFORE purchasing, so we can exchange details about shipping costs first.
===================================================
All 8.5 x 11" prints are packaged using a cello sleeve, cardboard insert and a non-bendable flat mailer UNLESS they are shipped WITH a Poster. POSTERS (11.7 x 16.5" and 13 x 19") are slightly rolled into a triangular mailing tube. If smaller prints are shipped with the poster, they will be slightly rolled as well. NOTE: If you want the 8.5 x 11" prints shipped FLAT, they will need to be shipped separately (for additional cost). Please do not hesitate to contact me via Etsy Convo with any questions! :-) I don't want shipping costs to be an impediment to your purchasing anything, so please let me know if it is a problem and we can work something out. :-)

Buyer will be responsible for any additional shipping costs like upgrades for insurance. I can not be responsible for items lost or stolen in the post. I also can not be responsible for a lost item if you have provided an incorrect address to ETSY.

Please make sure your ETSY ADDRESS IS CORRECT. I only ship to your Etsy address. Your item will be shipped within 2-5 business days after payment is received. You will be notified via Convo, as soon as your order has been sent.
Refunds and Exchanges
I take all the time necessary to ensure that you receive a quality item, properly mailed and free of any defects (prior to mailing). However, please contact me immediately if you have a problem with your order and I'll do my very best to address the issue promptly.

I do not offer refunds or exchanges, unless there is a viable significant "defect" issue with your print. I can not be responsible for defects that occur during shipping. There are no refunds or exchanges for buyer's remorse. A purchase is a binding contract, so please shop carefully and responsibly.

If there is a defect issue (which I work hard to ensure does not occur prior to shipping) with your order, and we resolve to offer you a refund, you will not be refunded shipping costs.

Your refund will only go into effect AFTER you have shipped the item back to me, and it arrives in the same condition you received it in.
Additional policies and FAQs
QUALITY PRINTS:
Only the best, professional quality materials are used. These brilliant prints, bursting with color, are printed on Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Paper with
