I’ve added some of my better half’s beautiful airship paintings to our print shoppe. I like to stress that with Myke’s work sometimes you can’t fully appreciate just how incredible these paintings are until you get a chance to see them in person. The original versions are huge and done in a classic style with acrylic paints. Typically I lose my gent to them for a week to two as the painting becomes his total focus until they’re done. He starts with a white canvas and gradually brings coloring shading to it. Over this he starts to add his details. This process continues until the final piece has incredible detail down to hidden things in the scenery. The final paintings translate well into any size and the 8 x 10s are an especially nice size to hang more than one airship together. You can see the six prints currently available here.
Serious convention preparation starts… now. We’ll be a bit on the busy side this week as we try to get in some last minute product making and of course packing up. We leave Thursday morning so Wednesday will be our last day to the post office to ship orders. Any orders we don’t get out then will go into the post promptly when we return on Monday. If you’re coming to the Motor City Steam con come give us a visit!
Just a friendly reminder to our shoppe visitors that we have a variety of unique tee shirt designs and interesting products to be found over on our Society6 page. Have a moment? Go take a look! :)
Bethalynne’s current project is making a special event deck of playing cards for the upcoming inaugural weekend for The Motor City Steam Con happening just outside of Detroit. The deck features steampunk and elegant neo-Victorian themes and each suit has its own style and color scheme. The face cards in the deck will feature portraits of characters from our tri-state steampunk community. We’ve added a page for the project in our special decks section here so you can see the deck as it progresses. Or you can get a quick sneak peek of the deck’s Aces behind the bump.
