new splotch monster island merch at books & other found things

Just restocked Books & Other Found Things, in Leesburg, Virginia with some new Splotch Monster merchandise. If you live near, or are passing through the Leesburg, VA area, definitely drop by and check this place out - it's certainly not just any ol' bookstore. In addition to some really unique, gently used books, you'll find all kinds of works from nearby artists and craftspeople. In the meantime, I'll be doing a Splotch Monster-making workshop and demo at the shop on Saturday, September 17th, from 11am until 2pm. So, hope to see folks there!

the splotch monster island online shop has been updated!

I figured, before I go back to school, I better update my online Splotch Monster Island shop over at Big Cartel. For now, I'm keeping things simple, and continuing to sell prints and greeting cards. As I'm well into a new era with my Splotch Monsters merging with the Endangered Kingdom series, I'll eventually be opening a print-on-demand shop to accommodate all the new imagery and offer more and varied options. There have been a few online vendors I've been exploring over the summer, but I'll come to a final decision later in the year. In the meantime, I provided links to all five individual items in the newly stocked shop, so check it out!

"Enlightened" print is available HERE.


"Conquering Mt. Splotchmore" print is available HERE

"Grow a Garden" print is available HERE

"Thank You" print is available HERE

"LOVE" greeting card is available HERE

splotch monsters invade ... the dentist's office

It's always fun and interesting to see where my Splotch Monster art ends up.  I've had work hang in art galleries, tattoo parlors, bookstores, libraries, coffee shops, college universities, and now a dental office. I just want to thank my friend Adam for asking to hang some of my Splotch Monster art prints on the wall in his office. He says people like 'em, and I even sold some right away! He was also kind enough to hang my wife Kris' beautiful paintings as well (see below pic). It would be nice to see more businesses and public spaces do this kind of thing, as it not only enhances the visual aspect of a space, but supports local residents, and fosters a culture of creativity. Way to go Adam!
