Hard Core Reality

Hard-core reality can be hard to take. That's why sometimes I like to escape into fantasy land: It's nicer there. The good guys always win.

I created this image of a fairy. It is truly mixed media. I started out with colored pencils, moved to watercolors and then finished it off on the computer with The Gimp!

Only problem is, when I printed it out on my crappy printer, it did not print true! I guess I have to get it professionally printed because I cannot do it with the resources I have at home.

Thanks for looking and if you have any problems you would like me to help you with, drop me a line here and I will answer all posts!

Next time you need a card for something, why not make one yourself? It's so much more personal. Or buy a handmade card from someone who made it. That is personal, too. And you are supporting someone who is making something with thier own little hands. Bypass the corporate mindset that says we have to get everything store bought. Why not?
There are a lot of great cards over at Etsy or Dawanda. This card pictured here is made by yours truly. It is from my original painting, "Time Space Geometry". I printed it myself and mounted it upon recycled paper. I think it looks a bit handsome.
