A Few Words….

First off, this blog, russellwalks.tumblr.com, will be going away soon. If you continue to be interested in following my work, please head over to russellwalksart.tumblr.com

The Star Wars themed propaganda pieces I did recently made the front page of both reddit and imgur this week, and my inbox exploded.
Thanks to all of you who sent kind words and compliments - The stuff I do is important to me (more than important, really - it’s essential to my well-being), and I’d be making art even if no one but me ever saw it. Nevertheless, knowing that the work I do affects so many of you in a positive way affects ME in a positive way as well, and that makes sitting down at the drawing board or computer a little easier.
To those of you (and there were some) who were critical; Thank you. In many instances your criticism was well-intended and on the money. In other cases, well, I guess you guys just add a little spice to the stew.
Many of you want to know where you can buy my work. I don’t have an online store, but I DO have a paypal account, and I will make it a point to tag the pieces I have for sale. If you see something that appeals to you and it has a “for sale” tag, just drop me a note, and I’ll fill you in on the particulars.
The Star Wars propaganda pieces are not currently available as prints, but that will change, and I hope to be able to make an announcement with regard to that very soon. In the meantime, you can find trading card size versions of those images Topps Company’s fantastic Star Wars: Chrome Perspectives.
Thanks again for your interest, everyone. I’ll do my best to keep making cool stuff, I hope you’ll continue to stop by and check it out.

 
Important Announcement From Russell Walks

I’m in the process of revamping this blog - upsizing the images, mainly - and it occurred to me that it might also make sense to change the theme, which I’m getting tired of. While I could’ve edited each post, I decided to build an entirely new blog, which, at some point soon, will become this blog.
The new blog is here, and if those of you who follow this blog would switch over to that one, I would sincerely appreciate it.

More Star Wars Propaganda for the fine folks at Topps. The portrait in this piece was originally painted asa sort of plea to George Lucas to get him a give thego-ahead on a series of Joseph Campbell based“Hero’s Journey” cards I wanted to paint. I wrote a notetelling him how important Star Wars was to me growing up,and included the painting in the package. A couple of daysafter I sent it to him, I got a phone call giving approval to proceed.

Hi! I ordered a signed copy of the Neil Gaiman print and while looking around to find out when it might ship, I started looking at some of the other things you've done. I came across the James Bond "The b!tch is dead" print and absolutely LOVED it! Is it possible to order one (signed by you of course.)
