I’m Sharing Some Cool Art Prints

When I was younger, I put posters on my bedroom wall. My favorite was of the Beatles. I don’t decorate my bedroom with posters any more, but I do decorate my office. And I suspect a lot of you do too.

I can help you with that! I’ve opened an Etsy store where I’m selling art prints.

I’ve started doing drawings (in my own style) at a resolution that is print-worthy. These prints use card stock and are worthy of framing. But if you would rather tack them to a wall with pushpins, that’s fine too 🙂 .

I’m starting with these two prints:

Her Highnessness

This is Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia of course. It’s the end of Empire Strikes Back. She’s thinking about Han and Luke. Leia isn’t in a panic. She’s worried and concerned but not anxious. I drew this as if she’s on cloud city at sundown.

Fun fact. This scene doesn’t actually exist, because our heroes don’t get to catch their breath until they’re away from the planet, but I like the red.


The Duke

I’m a relatively new fan of westerns and of John Wayne in particular. But I know many people love him because they grew up watching him with their family.

This is the Duke as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit (1969). In the story, Rooster is a real bad ass which is perfect for John Wayne. This picture is from a scene where Rooster opens up about his past. He’s sitting at a campfire talking with Maddie but instead of being tough on the outside and soft in the middle, we see that Rooster is tough as nails right through “She said, ‘Goodbye, Reuben, a love for decency does not abide in you.'”


So order some prints to spruce up your office!
