Put a Bird on it!

WOW! what a great response I had from the Fiddlers' Jamboree last weekend! There is nothing more motivating than 20k+ people admiring your work and being able to hear immediate feedback about your work.  We sold out of ALL of our shirts I designed as well as took orders for a about 100 more!  I also printed up 100 posters (see previous post) that I signed and numbered.  I left with only 16 in hand!
I'm beside myself at the response I had from this year's designs.  I want to thank each and every person who came over to the booth and said hello and an even bigger thank you to all who purchased something! You guys are what keeps me wanting to continue this what sometimes feels like a  never ending up-hill struggle we like to call freelance art.

I've finally done it! I've got the gears in motion to have the ThinkBaker web store back up and running! It's not what the final product will be by far, but it's baby steps, right?

Either way, first thing in the store will be the remaining posters from the Smithville Fiddlers' Jamboree. So stay tuned as I get the supplies needed to start shipping these bad boys out. I should have it all live By the beginning of next week.

Now, as the title of this blog says... PUT A BIRD ON IT! I actually ended up putting two birds on this years poster. But I drew quite a few as I did not really know which ones I'd like best and which would have the best flow for the poster....

And here a few other items I drew separately for the poster. I like to do this sometimes when I have a rough idea in my noggin' but not a clear picture as to how I'd like to see it laid out. (Plus, now if I need to use a bird, or fiddle, or banjo, or a jug of the ole White Lightin'  for another quick design layout, I have a few good Hi- Res scans that I can choose from!)

Thanks again for viewing!

On my next post,  CTHULHU CALLING: A Lovecraftian Art show hosted by yours truly! :)

Smithville Fiddler's Jamboree Poster 2012

I was asked once again to create this year's official poster as well as other merchandise for the Smithville Fiddler's Jamboree.  It is held this weekend July 6th and 7th in Smithville, TN.

We are only making 100 of these bad boys so get them quick as I'm sure they will go fast.  They are 12x24 - 2 color on 100# French's Kraft Paper and will have variations of gold to blue to teal in color, I'll post a few pics of the final printed posters later this week. If some odd chance I have any left I'll find a way to get them online for sell. Otherwise they will go on sell this friday at the Jamboree. 

********* OTHER NEWS*******
As you can see below it's been quite awhile since I've bothered with this blog. Reason is.. I'm attempting to make a new site and with all the work I've been doing (both art related and Just moving into a new house related) I've managed to neglect posting things... again.   But let's be honest, I'm terrible at this whole blog posting thing anyways.  I've been doing lots of stuff I can't really post just yet but I'm also in the midst of a super fun project that will be loads of fun and I will attempt to document the shenanigans on here throughout the next two months.  Just be aware.. there will be lots of tentacles, fish people and Old Ones and Elder Gods.  But all of that in just  a bit. :)

Thanks for looking.
