So obviously I’m breaking the first rule here, but to all those interested (sorry I cannot reply to all of you individually) I have a few APs from the Fight Club print available. Generally with gallery shows I wait until the show is down to sell my few out of respect to the gallery, but with them all sold out I have mine to sell off. I’ll throw them up at noon EST on tuesday, april 30th. I know many of you have requested I let you know, but unfortunately given the volume of requests the best I can do is giving a set time to throw them up.
For those curious about the GLOW IN THE DARKness of it all. The picture on the right is a no filter, no photoshopped pic of the poster after being hit with light.
The effect is achieved because the white of the paper (where there is no GiD ink) goes to black in the pitch black. That’s how the outline is achieved. The glow doesn’t last CRAZY long by any means but hang it on your wall, point a light at it for a few seconds and hit all the lights and there’s Tyler.
In should be noted, given the nature of the ink you will be able to see a hint of T.D. with the lights on too, but that’s just a reminder that he’s really always there.
Glad everyone seems to like it! Thanks to my cousin Nathan and to Bottleneck Gallery as well.
Thanks to everyone that purchased. If you have a paypal order number your purchase was a success and you should be receiving an email with a tracking number by week’s end (it’ll take me a day or two to make sure these all get tubed up properly)
So I recently went through my inventory and unearthed a few rare, often requested prints. As promised here they are today, Black Friday. Given that they are the last remaining stash of these prints the cost won’t be cheap but I’m hoping they’ll go to good homes.

I was 10 years old when The Right Stuff came out. And while a 3 hour drama about the space race isn’t your normal 10 yr old type of film, I fell in love with it. To this day not a year goes by that I don’t watch it at least once or twice. It’s so so good.
When my wife challenged me to create an art print every two weeks one of the ideas I had was to somehow create a print for each of the original 7 astronauts. I wasn’t sure those would really be wildly popular to anyone other than myself and my mother, so I shelved the idea. But lo and behold, a few days later I realized (in large part thanks to my mother who originally took me to see the movie) that this February 20th marked the 50th anniversary of John Glenn’s historic flight- 3 complete orbits around the globe. I thought that while I may not actually create a print for each of the astronauts, there was no more worthy an event or man to celebrate than this one.
I have no idea how popular a print this will be, but I was glad I made the decision to do it.
Godspeed, John Glenn!
So you may notice a few changes here on the site. Some of them are noticeable minor tweaks, but most are big and unseen (behind the scenes) fixes. My web mechanic threw open the hood of the site and decided to rebuild the entire engine. And it hums along now.
Some things to note:
–Load time should be faster.
–Pop up poster & info are now gone. Each poster has its own url that you can either copy/paste or…
–SHARE. look at those good lookin’ buttons below each poster (and above individual blog posts as well). Please tweet, facebook, pin, or whatever you do to share these crazy things as much as you want. These buttons should make it super easy to do so.
–There are 2 new ways to “follow me”- dribble and pinterest.
–ZOOM: while most posters currently on the site do not yet have zoomed in pop ups, they will as I slowly add them . New posters will have this feature as soon as they’re uploaded.
In addition to those changes in the coming weeks I hope to add missing posters from years past, as well as opening up inventory of recently discovered prints (just 1 or 2 in most cases).
My goal is to have this completed by March 2nd.
Lastly, my wife has challenged me to complete an art print every 2 weeks. While this has yet to happen, once things are rolling along more smoothly with the new studio I hope to make this a reality. Stay tuned.
One last thing. HUGE HUGE thanks to my web guy. HUGE thanks.
This year looks to be heavy in art prints as I have at least 4 planned that I’m excited about already.
15 is a lot of prints for sure, but keep in mind they can be gifted, made into giant paper airplanes, tossed up on ebay, used as kindling for camp fires or any other such purpose you deem appropriate. I’ll also include my “reno guide to framing options” postcard to help with that “what do I do with this print now?” step of this poster/print collecting process.
There are 2 subscriptions available- one regional, one national.
Regional: $300- 15 prints plus a subscription only print at the end of the year. Pickup can be arranged twice during the year, but comfest & north market holiday are best bets (if I get in to both). Purchases that do not have an Ohio address will be refunded. Oh, and you gotta pay the ol’ sales tax too Ohio residents. Sorry.
National: $340- Same as regional, only boxing & shipping costs have been added.
I’m only offering 10 this year.
If you’d like to purchase this as a gift for the holidays I can hand draw a nice unique little card and provide a “gift box” of sorts so that there’s an actual wrapped item in hand for any gift exchanging.
*the value of these subscriptions is anywhere from 400-450 (shipping not included) depending on the cost of each print. Some will cost 40 right off the bat, but most will cost 25.
GO to it, if you like.
Meet Silas Henry Reno. He was born on thursday morning, 7/28, at 7:18 am. Getting ready to bring this little one into the world, as well as renovating a new studio space in addition to finally emptying the old space (just 35 hours before the birth) has kept me from many things- mostly email replies. So to all of you that have inquired about various my morning jacket posters (I have good news & bad), or the many folks that have signed up for my mailing list either online or at events in the past few months, rest assured that I’ll try to make good on all of this in the coming month or so as I transition into a new space and into now being a father of TWO little boys. Thanks for being patient!

So this was a huge honor for me, and it was a fun project. My Morning Jacket announced recently with their new album Circuital they would be offering an official fan club for the band, called ROLL CALL. With the purchase of a membership, fans would get a silk screened poster as well as a t shirt (among other awesome things obviously). That’s where I came in. So in addition to creating the initial logo I created this poster and t shirt. I’m looking forward to seeing a few of these shirts walking around the LC when the band rolls through town in August.
Somehow was able to find time to buckle down and do an art print amidst busy times (art prints always take a hit during the busy concert months) for Pinchflat Columbus- an collection of 25-30 very cool posters by local Columbus artists. I should have the extras I have at Renegade BK, or online as of June 18th.
Find out more here.
So with a few days break in the action around here, I thought it would be nice to show some of the stuff I’ve been working on this year.
First off- The Independent’s Day 2011 Tiger. Independent’s Day is an annual event in September showcasing the best of Columbus (and surrounding areas I believe) in the worlds of music, food, & indie crafts. You can find out more info here.
