Poetry illustrations

My poetry book "Iodized Salt" volumes 1, 2, and 3 have now been fully edited.  I am currently working on the illustrations and formatting the work for publication in printed page and ebook form.  I have quite a bit of the illustrations completed at this point, i just have to keep going, there are lots of picture pages in these books.

Here is a quick look at the inside cover page.  This image is without the borders, as it will take me some time to complete my formatting work on this it wont have borders for a while.  
The poetry is rhythm based work, and I intended it to read like a painting- as a visual experience.  I predict that I will have this all complete by the end of March/April 2012 and then in print by May/June.

Wedding Invitations

Athena and I finished designing our wedding invitations.  After playing with several designs we went with a comic book style, and we both like the way it looks.  The wedding has very quickly taken over my life (as is should so I am told), but I will be back in the studio very soon.





We had the invitations printed at Peek Printing in St. Paul.  The look great, the paper quality is fantastic and they were fast.  Seriously our return was 2 days!  
Thanks Peek Printing, the invitations look great.

Minneapolis 16 "Improvisation h"

Looks like I completed another one, an improvisation for the kickstarter rewards.  I took a totally different approach to this piece, and it was fun.

New Prints

I finished a print run this week.  I have just under 20 prints after the pre-sales.  I currently have 17 8x10 reproductions in pigmented inks of BitTorrent 2 "Marinuis Vanderlubbe as Icarus" 

The larger prints show here are already spoken for (sorry).



I am selling each print at $20.00 USD + shipping (sipping varies slightly per individual location, but it is not very costly).   If you are interested in one of these prints contact me through my website email. info@adamconsidine.com

I will be doing a new print run in mid January 2012.  I have not decided what painting to reproduce, but i will let you all know soon.

Studio Visit magazine

It finally came in the mail...
...Studio Visit Magazine is out and I am featured in volume sixteen, on pages 34-35.



It looks nice, and has a good feel in my hands, lets see if this reaps the rewards that I hoped it would.  If anything this will show off my work to other artists.  After thumbing through the issue, I found that my work is completely different than anything out there.  I am not completely surprised, albeit, I had hopped that there were a few artists involved in the magazine that my work could at least relate to.
Oh well, it's not a total loss to stand out.

All in all im happy with the print, now go out and buy this wherever they sell magazines.
