(woven in sinew, encased in bone) [03 Nov 2009|08:08pm]

Whoa, it's been a while! I have some good news -- kitsche was published in the LiveJournal Anniversary Anthology! Basically, LiveJournal compiled a book of selected LJ entries to chronicle their tenth year anniversary, and kitsche made it! I received my copy of the book not too long ago, and I've scanned the pages below. Exciting stuff!

You can purchase the book here. There are a ton more entries featured, many of which you'll probably recognize!

Anyway, these are long, long overdue.

UPDATE (I): Happy new year to all of you; thanks for supporting/watching the journal. Hope 2008 treats you well. And happy birthday kitsche; you're 2 years old now.

UPDATE (II): Some of the art here is archived under my flickr and website. :)

UPDATE (I): kitsche is not dead; I like to think of it as a very long, fulfilling nap. I have recently moved, thus I am currently without a scanner. I hope to get one soon so I will not have to wait until every trip back home (New York to Indianapolis trips aren't a very common occurence...) to scan new work. I do apologize for not posting in so long; I hope my future updates will make up for that.

UPDATE (II): There will be a book; release date TBA. I am still drafting a cover. :)

UPDATE (III): Seeing as I have not been very active on Flickr lately, I have a Flickr account where you can view some of the artwork of kitsche.

UPDATE (IV): I am catching up on print orders, and I plan to have all orders (including gift-wrapped ones) shipped this week.

My computer has been pretty shitty as of late, so apologies for a lack in updates. However, I've updated the memories with newer icon posts using the art here.

**My old camera has no memory stick and my place in China has no scanner, so I had to use my mom's camera to take this. Yes, that is the actual size of the photo. No, I'm sorry but I don't know why the camera resized it so now the bird drawing is all sharpened. Once I get a memory stick, I'm reuploading.

P.S. Join untidytowns for music. :)

WINNERS


I have selected winners to this contest. Thank you to those who participated; it was very hard to choose winners from a bunch of great entries. I had about 750 unique entries. Therefore, I decided to extend the number of prizes. There is 1 first-place winner and 10 runners-up.

Winners!Collapse )

Again, thanks to all the participants! I will contact the winners shortly regarding their prizes. More artwork coming soon! Have a wonderful 4th of July today. ♥

contest (or something like it) [30 Jun 2006|09:33pm]

CONTEST!

Objective
This is actually regarding the book; I still don't have an idea for a title! The ones that I think of turn out to be part of copyrighted lyrics of obscure songs. So, here's the challenge: suggest a title for the book. I'd like you guys to suggest actual titles, not just general ideas for one.

Prizes
The person who submits the title that best fits the book will receive a free 8"x10" print from yours truly. The winner will get to choose a print between these five: 1 2 3 4 5. Obviously, the prints will be of higher quality than their respective links. If I choose you as the winner, it does not necessarily mean that I will automatically select your title for the book.

EDIT: I will also select 4 runners-up. These four will receive a 4"x6" print of any one of those five choices above.

Notes
1. You may submit as many titles as possible.
2. Comments will be screened.
3. Titles must be of your own original creation!
4. Deadline is July 4th, 12PM EST
5. There is no limit to the length of the title, but try not to make it too long. ;)
6. Just comment on this entry to submit. Any entries elsewhere will not be accepted.

Feel free to ask any other questions that aren't answered here! Thanks. :)

(0626) i fell, i fall, i fail [27 Jun 2006|02:44pm]

[ mood | weird ]

NEWS
1. About the book, international shipping is available, so no worries. It will be available in the fall via Amazon, Border's, Barnes & Noble, AuthorHouse.com, etc. None of the entries that were made after May 10 will be included, because of the size and journal differences. I will update with more details of the book when I have them.

2. All icon/graphic posts made with my art will be posted in the memories, provided that you send me a link of your entry. You can browse around the icons that people have made without searching through the comments.

3. I offer prints, but those are currently on hold, as I'm on vacation.

4. If you'd like to know the date each entry was created, it is either written in the entry itself or it is on the subject line.

5. Everything created before May 11 was in a generic hardcover journal with lined paper. Everything created May 11 and beyond is in a Moleskine.

NEWS
1. kitsche was featured in lj_spotlight. Thank you ljkrissy!

2. DO NOT ask to join the community, as the profile states.

3. The book is being published by a different company, but I'll try to have the book out by fall. I'll give more details about that soon.

4. If you make icons/graphics out of my art, you must credit me. Also, leave a link to your graphics so I can see them!

5. Thanks to those watching/supporting the journal, really. :)

NEWS: The book will be out in the fall at the latest. Once I get the whole publishing deal finalized, I've got to start planning the layouts and cover. Anyway, the book will probably be 80-100 pages. It depends on which entries I'm going to display. So...which entries would you like to see printed?
