Merchandise is in for the Holiday RAWk Show…

Just picked up my first 10 of my 250-print run of “Pirate Story” from Gary Zuercher of Chroma Concepts in San Clemente. He always does a great job! You can pick up one of these prints at the Holiday RAWk show Dec. 14 at the Shark Club in Costa Mesa (don’t forget to buy your tickets here for $15).

Also, my art cards featuring “Day” and “Night” came in the mail — handy for all sorts of occasions and available for only $5.

Can’t make it to the show to purchase a signed-and-numbered, limited-edition print? I’ll be printing to order up to the 250 limit. Just email me at a.maxwelltownsend@gmail.com.

In the future, looked for signed, limited-edition prints of “Pursuits of Man” numbers 1 and 2 with hand-applied metallic gold. (Single, small signed print proofs of these pieces will be available for $100 a piece or $150 for both. A signed print proof of “Pirate Story” will be available for $60″).

For sale at the Holiday RAWk 2014 show…

I’m getting all my materials prepared for the Holiday RAWk 2014 art show in Costa Mesa Dec. 14; a great chance to clear out my inventory in preparation for making more intricate and exciting paintings and illustrations.

I’m going to have 600 square feet of wall space, and I’m going to use every last bit to display my artwork and hopefully sell some; it’s been stacking up in my garage and it’s itching to be out in the world.

Most exciting to me are the 10 prints of my painting “Pirate Story” I’ll have for sale. This is one of my most popular works (the original is already sold) and it has been featured in FIND art magazine and gallery. The prints are all full-sized 15”X20” with an additional border, signed and numbered. These are the first 10 of a limited run of 250, and one of them can be yours for $125.

Also available at the show are some 5”x7” greeting/notecards I had printed up featuring my “Day” and “Night” nature illustrations featuring West Coast wildlife. For only $5 a piece, these are great as original Christmas cards, or just to have handy for birthdays or thank-you notes.

I’ve also raided my stash of original pastel nudes, five of which I’ll have on sale with prices ranging from $75 to $125.

My original work will be a little pricier; I spent dozens of hours on each painting and illustration and, well, you’re gonna pay for quality.  For example, “Jazz #5” and “Harem Painting” I’ll be selling for $2,500 and $2,000, respectively.

The “Pursuits of Man” pair are on sale for $1,000 each, or $1,800 for both (they kind of go together — shouldn’t be seperated.)

Remember, don’t forget to visit my profile on the RAW art collective website and purchase your ticket for $15 – buy it here.

Finally finished with the “BIKER BAR” Commission

I wrapped up the finishing touches on this painting Sunday. I used an orange art marker to lay the bricks over the blue-washed background of the bar.
