I am big time excited to announce that I have opened a store on href="http://www.etsy.com/shop/timfite">etsy.com> where I will be selling my artwork. For my test run, I am selling a lino-cut print that I designed, cut, inked and printed all by myself with a happy heart and handy hands. The print is called "Lock, Lock, Key." It is 11 inches wide and fourteen inches tall, and each copy has been signed and numbered. Only 200 of these prints will EVER exist in the world. I have put 50 up for sale on etsy, and the remaining 150 will be sold at my shows. In a gallery these prints would cost at least $100. I am selling them for the rock and roll price of $25. If you order the print off of etsy, you can choose to get it in the mail or to pick it up at the show.
In addition, if you live in any of the cities I'll be visiting on href="http://www.myspace.com/timfite">tour in October or November I have some good news. I am going to give 2 free tickets to the first person in each city on my tour who buys a print. Again you can choose to get it in the mail or pick it up at the show. To enter simply forward your purchase confirmation email or a screenshot of the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "DID I WIN?" If you did, I'll let you know, and if you didn't, you still win a beautiful print. Venue age restrictions and all that jazz applies and tickets may only be redeemed on the day of show at will call.
Hooray for affordable art! Tim
P.S. I decided to add a show at Case Western and a show in Little Rock to the tour. Information is on the href="http://www.myspace.com/timfite">MySpace>.
