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.
