ETSY Prep School

I’m sorry there hasn’t been anything new in the art realm up here lately. I’m currently looking into getting an Etsy shop together and am getting my mind blown as I go through the preparations for shipping, policies, payments and other logistical items.

The shop will consist of archival prints initially and should be much more affordable than what I used to charge when showing at a gallery. No longer will I need to calculate the 40% gallery fee when computing my prices! That’s good for YOU the CONSUMER. Wow.

Froggy and the Do-Bee

Initially I’ll offer prints that I have in my inventory already and will build from there. Many of you have already seen these prints, most of which revolve around old toys such as this one, Froggy and the Do-Bee. DO you remember Romper Room and the Do-Bee and Don’t Be? I’ll bet many of you don’t remember Froggy the Gremlin from the Andy Devine show. I’m actually a little young to remember the Andy Devine show but the Froggy rubber figure was very familiar to my childhood. Strange little dude, with the vest and all. Andy Devine is one of my favorite character actors so I’ve looked up clips from the old show.

Dylan’s Love Minus Zero

I’ll also have my Dylan prints for sale on the site. The tricky part about showcasing these and some of the toy prints is the fact that many of them are embellished with gold or silver leafing and it’s really hard to convey that in a digital photo.

Anyway, gotta get back to figuring it all out. I’ll post here and on Facebook when all is ready and maybe you’ll find something you like at a very reasonable price!
