Awesome! Though, I would buy prints of your older acrylic stuff in a heartbeat. Any chance of putting those up?

Which ones exactly? Also there will be more pixel stuff as well as digital painting stuff (cleaning up a few older ones for print size)
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

From your blog, these traditional works are my favorites and I think have the potential to become wonderful prints:

And this digital piece is also extremely printworthy: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_XTdEISdE39o/SPENFVqBfHI/AAAAAAAAAHw/-7qSX2Ve6So/s1600-h/birdspirit_final.jpg

I think Blue Nude and Bird Spirit would be the most popular ones, and the one's I'd buy and hang up for sure : )

Uhead would also be an extremely attractive print if the contrast got bumped up to make the colors a tad more vibrant - but that's likely the scanner's fault. Your colored pencil sketches such as blobodile would also work if you somehow collaged them into a larger image.

Hm, true about the blobodile.

The bird spirit one I plan to have up there as well, but atm it is too small for a good print. So I will have to scale it up, clean outlines and also probably scan new textures and do strategic texture replacement to make the texture more crisp. I will post about new posters on my blog for sure as they happen.

Found another random generator.  This one for art projects.  http://www.magatsu.net/art/index.php  Useful as a a starting point.

When set to 'elaborate' it creates results like:

  • Create a piece to express awe using only black and white (no shading, no colour). Theme: fragile past.
  • Create a portrait of a merman without using any characteristic normally associated with that sort of person.
  • It should contain a mask or a tryst. The principal colors should be yellow tones. Prompt: color.
  • Portray a bodyguard and an objectifying gaze, with the quality of angst. Use a lot of red colors.
  • Within one piece, express the qualities of homesickness, frustration, and dread. Subjects need not be human.
