I hope this is happy news for a lot of people. The CephaLovePod has been one of the most popular designs I’ve made, but up until now it had only been available in a couple smallish editions which did not last very long. But that has now been extremely corrected. Having leveraged the estimable printing skills of Dan MacAdam of Crosshair, I can now offer you the CephaLovePod Open Edition. This time he’s going to be hanging around for a while, so don’t be shy.
I wanted the new edition to be distinct from the previous ones and reworked the whole color mix, and had it printed on some snappy blue-green French paper. I’m really happy with how it turned out, but not as happy as you’ll be when you get yours in the mail.
It took some doing, but the constant barrage of Squarespace ads on the podcasts I listen to and the subliminal mind control messages contained therein have finally broken down my resistance and I have transferred The Octophant web site to Squarespace. What this probably means for you (assuming anyone is reading this) is more and better updating of all the things I am up to at any given time. Not only prints and posters for sale, but also the design work I do for my day job at Half Acre Beer Company. Among other things.
Speaking of other things, click on the image in this post for a better view of The Battle of Carmen, an illustration I recently did for 3 Floyds. Bonkers, right?
If you missed out on the Impossible Octophant pre-sale, now is your chance to get in on the post-sale.
Do not expect there will be more of these once they are gone.
I got to be involved in a printmaker portfolio exchange on a Krampus theme this year, and this was my contribution. I think it’s important to replace some of the joy and good will of the holidays and inject a bit of mortal terror to really make the season special for our children. (By which I mean your children.) Please won’t you help?
Turns out Indiegogo does some weird stuff with their URLs and the one I was using in the previous post has… expired? evaporated? no idea. ANYWAY.
The previous post has also been updated, but just for emphasis… that link up there. Go for it.
All the details are on the Indiegogo page but the tl;dr is as follows:
I need some money up front to cover printing and materials costs on this print. If enough people pre-order, everyone wins. Let’s do this thing.
