Michele Wortman's Annual Christmas Print Special
Small art prints make perfect gifts! Michele just finished two new paintings and is offering them as signed 25 dollar mini prints on archival canvas as a special for the holidays. Pictured here are both of them, available as a set. On the left is Around The Sun; as MIchele was painting she remembered that a year prior she was finishing up Bloom Cycle, and this new piece seemed full circle with regards to her Christmas birthday -a reflection and completion of a year, another trip around the sun. One the right is its companion piece, Ribbons. The ribbons are threads of energy. As the skeletal flower/spore fades back into space its roots continue to grow, weave and bend into the future. It's symbolic of change and resolve, as we continue to unfold and usher in the new year.
Both prints can be purchased together as a set, and are also available individually. They are specially priced for the holidays at $25 each or $50 for the set. The prints are 6x12" each plus a 1" border for mounting purposes, signed by the artist.
The Guy Aitchison Rock River Edition Tattoo Machine
The Guy Aitchison Rock River Edition Tattoo Machine First run - Brass - Limited edition of 815 - $599
After 32 years of tattooing, this is Guy’s only ever production model machine. He had planned on co-hosting a convention in Rockford Illinois this year, but since conventions are temporarily on hold he and Rockford tattooer Rob Schaal have built a unique lining machine instead. Guy carved the frame to reduce its weight while at the same time shaping it in such a way to provide the greatest structure for its weight. Each frame is precision milled and hand polished, then signed and numbered by Guy. Coils are 8 wrap; some other hardware may vary slightly from photos as Guy and Rob continue to refine the details prior to shipment which will happen in the third week of December. Please let us know if this machine is meant as a Christmas gift so we can expedite shipping. Also available in aluminum.
Aitchison/Clue Collab Print Available Until Tomorrow!
Guy and long time co-collaborator Jon Clue are doing a run of their Nebula print. Because it's hard to get collaborative prints signed, we usually do them in limited runs- this one ends tomorrow, May 8, around noon Central Time. It's available in both framed and unframed editions at hyperspacestudios.com/prints.
