Small Business Saturday!!!
Today is Small Business Saturday, and it just so happens that artists are some of the smallest businesses out there! While most artists make their income from gallery shows or commercial commissions, sales of prints make a huge difference and help us ride the line in the leaner times. And even better, prints make awesome gifts (after all, you might only wear a shirt or sweater for a few months, but art can last a lifetime). Now I'd love you to shop at my own online store (http://johnnyacurso.storenvy.com/) but if my stuff isn't your cup of tea, here are some links to some other awesome artists and galleries I know and love:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/ChrisRahnArt - High Fantasy art (Tolkien, MTG ETC.)
http://www.inprnt.com/gallery/becka/ - Portraits and whimsical surrealism
http://www.inprnt.com/gallery/kmcmorris/ - Young adult style fantasy and fairy tale
http://sallycentigrade.storenvy.com/ - Lowbrow and Illustrative art. Formerly Benjamin Benjamin
http://www.ponyclubpdx.com/ - PDX shop with a focus on illustrators, cartoonists, and printmakers
http://www.screamingskygallery.com/ - Toy and print shop on Portland's Alberta Street
http://www.antlerpdx.com/ - Fine art gallery often featured in Hi-Frutose and Juxtapose
These are just a few of the people and places out there that help make our world a little more colorful, so support your local small businesses and buy some art!
