Arts DEVO finds art for you online
Arts DEVO’s random online-art gallery is open
It’s hard for me to not get sucked into looking for cheap, local art for sale online. I mean, when the Craigslisting reads: “Original Art Painting: Acrylic Gutless Egghead Man,” I can’t click fast enough (though, in this case, I needn’t have been in such a hurry).
Here are few choice pieces that caught my eye while trolling …
“Ceramic doll-making parts” ($10 per set): I guess you’re supposed to take the ceramic rabbit parts (cats and bears are also available) and attach them to a doll body, but I like the idea of just planting the limbs in my yard and creating a zombie-pet cemetery.
I want so many of these archival prints ($4 for 4x6; $8-or-less for 8x10; with discounts for buying in quantities of five or 10) by Paper Gangster. Buy this 8x10 “Rainbow Elephants” print on an old dictionary page at www.etsy.com/people/papergangsterprints (and check out her other page links for other prints and trinkets).
And … I want “Liam the Woodland Fox” by Sleepy King (aka Savannah Carroll) right now! I’d also accept Liam as a “Sleepy Woodland Fox” or his friend “Stewart Sunshine the Woodland Fox.” Stuffed foxes range from $28-$38 at www.etsy.com/shop/sleepyking.
After tracking Woodland Fox’s creator on Facebook, I came across the sweet work of Robbie Reaves, aka The Cat Soldier. His site (www.catsoldier.wordpress.com) only has a few of his cool pieces, but you can always stalk him on FB yourself for gems like the fat cat in “I’m Full.”
