Some of you already know about this from my post a few weeks ago on Facebook, but Zack has his own store on Etsy now! It's of course run by me, but the art is a collaborative effort between me and Zack.
To start off, we did a limited run of "surprise me!" bookmarks and they sold out almost immediately (thank you, friends!). Today I listed one last bookmark, the cute one with the owls....
It's made on heavy-weight cold-press watercolor paper, has rounded corners so they don't get messed up in your book, and is made with a wash of watercolor, stamped ink, and colored pencils. They're signed and dated on the back.
Here are some of the others that sold, along with the sweet owls:
Zack and I take turns on the art work. We dig through my folder of ephemera and stickers and cut things out, stamp things, draw things.
There's a lot that goes into his work -- first, we cut paper to size.
And then we go through a ton of art supplies to rival any Michaels out there.
Rubber stamps, ink, Prismacolor colored pencils...
Some very cool metallic Faber-Castell colored pencils...
(can't have too may colored pencils!)
And, of course, palettes of paint -- regular and shimmer.
We haven't broken out the watercolor tubes yet but that's coming.
The above photo is of Zack with his art on exhibit at the Art Academy Museum when he was in 2nd grade. That painting (and several others!) are framed and displayed throughout the house.
He even has little Moo business cards now, so if we see you at BeadFest in Philly in August, you might just get one!
