Art Wall is Now Accepting Scholarship Submissions for the Gocco Studio

So, I've got some empty spots to fill up in the studio and I'll be accepting submissions on scholarship, which is a fancy way of saying it's free! Did you know that the studio was the jumping-off point for the entire Art Wall site? I wanted a nice way to showcase my favorite finds for Save Gocco-- a way to promote other artist's work using Gocco with no kick-backs or anything more than maybe simply a thank-you. For that reason, it feels only right to keep that room as simply promotional and gratis. So there you go, submit away. There's one condition, your work has to be Gocco'd and it has to be good, get it?

Gocco Fix from Amy Rice

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Amy Rice is one of my favorite artists, Gocco or not. I've featured her work before on SG here. Hailing out of Minnesota, her body of work has a very cohesive and specific look, feel and color palette. She uses found objects and ephemera in lieu of traditional canvas and paper, and she often includes Gocco in her process, as in the two pieces above. Amy doesn't have her own online shop, but some of her pieces are available for purchase through Artstream Gallery and ArtStar Gallery. She also has a slew of eye-candy in her flickr account. Enjoy!

Gocco Fix from Dwell Deep

Sunday, February 7, 2010

This post is about a week past-due as I stuck this darling fox image on the Save Gocco website last Sunday. I need 3 little elves named: Viva, La, and Gocco to come help me stay updated with posts. Until that happens, you'll have to bear with me. Anyhoo..enough nonsense, let's get to the goodness. Get out of town with these Gocco prints by Dwell Deep! Said foxes are a Valentine limited edition. They're so in luff. In real life, I'm scared of foxes but these guys make me a tad less fearful. I really want the moustached sailor for my porch, which is about -20 right now but come spring, he is going to be mine. Read all about Dwell Deep on Save Gocco here. If you'd like to purchase any of these prints, visit the Dwell Deep Etsy shop riiiiiiigh: here. Cheers!

gocco printed curtains

Friday, January 22, 2010

How sweet. Ellen from the long thread enlisted the help of her 5-year-old daughter to help with these Gocco printed cotton curtains. The image was drawn (by said 5-y-o) with a carbon marker and white ink was used for a charming tone-on-tone effect. Darling.

New Featured Artist on Save Gocco Website: Maraid

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

So, you might recognize this name from the previous post. Maraid is Jane McDevitt. She's on my radar. I was "had"at "Skating Chimp" but then "Ampersand" sealed the deal. The ampersand is my absolute favorite bit of type, and I love the pretty lace and swell color combo. This gal's going places. She has an Etsy shop featuring this and other sweet Gocco prints. When she's not printing with Gocco she designs websites freelance, style.
