Limited Edition 100: means I won’t produce more than that (I may produce less, or none).

The pre-order period for the most recent Covid-19 images is nearly up, 9 days (July 19th) until it closes. Now is the time to add to your collection.

All people ordering before July 19th will receive a free 11″x17″ portfolio of the final 19 drawings. So that’s a great reason to purchase your drawing, print, book, zine or cards now. After the pre-sale that portfolio will be 15$ plus shipping, while quantities last.

I mean, you can wait until whenever to try to order some of the print pieces, some will be available, but some will not. If there are no orders of the object of your desire during the pre-sale then I won’t produce it (unless you want one of the original drawings, in which case when it’s SOLD, well it’s gone, right?). If more people order the item then I will produce it, plus a few more than ordered, and you can likely still get it (while quantities last) after the pre-sale.

That said, it could happen that I re-open an edition again, up to that maximum number (if the stars are correctly aligned), but that’s not much of an assurance of future availability for you is it?

So that’s my rather lame sales pitch, if you want a limited edition print, book, ‘zine, greeting cards, post cards, or portfolio, order it now or risk missing out.

Thanks for supporting us small scale artists doing our best to earn a living while providing fresh perspectives on the big and little things in life!

Virtual Exhibitions

So Covid-19 #9 has been included in a virtual exhibition, the Covid-19 Artwork Showcase, presented in conjunction with Fortune Live Media’s Health Brainstorm Virtual Event which opens tomorrow and runs for three days. I think it sounds pretty cool to be part of an exhibition of international artwork & artists put on by a major media force like Fortune Magazine’s live media branch.

In addition to this event, I’ve also been invited to contribute work to virtual exhibitions and archives including the Women’s Art Museum of Canada, the Immortal Artist’s Pandemic Archive Project, a residency project organized by artist Pamela Moon, Life As We Know It: 2 Meters Apart, and to various institutions actively soliciting archive material documenting the pandemic.

The question is, without the personal interaction of hanging the work in a physical space and interacting with viewers at an opening event, do these virtual exhibitions have the same impact for you as an artist or as a viewer? The reach they can have is far greater than a physical exhibition, and I have had people across the globe reach out to me, but is the impact of the encounter as potent when we cannot be physically present?

I will be curious to see what sort of long term response comes out of these virtual exhibitions.
