GOD SAVE THE EAMES. Based on my favorite of the (many) Eames chairs, designed by Charles and Ray Eames. As Larry David would say, I “respect wood.”
ALONE AT NIGHT II (detail)
To give you an idea of the scale and preposterous, maddening, stupid amount of detail and cross-hatching, the entire astronaut in the drawing is about 5” or less across, meaning the detail I included here is around 1.5” wide. The whole thing is a 30” x 20” watercolor. Created for Mike Mitchell’s SPACE! The Gallery Show, now on display at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, California, USA.
I’m doing three prints of the image, which are currently available for presale:
Presell ends on Wednesday—the numbered edition will include the quantity sold during the presell period, plus five or so for my archives, and that’s that. So get on it if you’re into limited stuff. If you don’t care about limited stuff (I myself do not care about limited stuff much), then after the presell ends it will be available through Inprnt as an unnumbered edition in at least two sizes.
BOXES. A new 14” x 8.5” giclee print, now up for presell, which will last until Friday, May 3; all prints sold during this time will be part of a numbered edition exclusive to this period—AND they’re part of the sale mentioned below, so while they’re listed at $30, functionally they’re $21 during the presell.
Prints sold after that time will be part of a small unnumbered quantity debuting at TCAF. If you’d like to purchase a numbered print to pick up in person at TCAF, place your order as normal and then email me at dustyATdharbinDOTcom and I’ll refund your shipping costs and bring that mother right to you, along with anything else included in the order.
SPEAKING of orders, I’ll be running a spring-cleaning sale all week in my store, ending at 9am on Monday, May 6. Enter SPRING under discount code to get 30% off any order of $20 or more. That sale includes the above print! And pretty much everything else except the original drawing items, which will return once the sale has ended (and I’m caught up on orders, fingers crossed) also this Monday.
ANYWAY, the print—remember the print—is a redrawn version of 3 pages from the middle of my story “Boxes”, which is of all the things I’ve done creatively, the one I’m most proud of, though it’s pretty personal and more than half bleak. If you haven’t read it before, all 38 pages are up on my site, and it’s the last half of Diary Comics #4, which is available here and will be 30% off as long as you spend at least $20 in my sale—remember the sale?
Happy Monday! Just a note that I’m giving up the perusal of other people’s illustration work for Lent this year. I’ve got a bunch of posts in the queue, though, so there’s that for a while, at least.

HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN. A set of three ten dollar sketches—the request was “warrior cardinals and fancy falcon.” Crazy I know! I got a little carried away maybe.
Anyway, if you would like a sketch, you can buy one here, and see all the ones to date here.
