I recently received an email from a pastor asking me to upload an old piece of artwork onto my ImageKind shop so he could order a print of it and I said sure, no problem… but when I finally found the twenty year old gouache painting hidden in the corner of my studio I felt like it could use a little digital makeover, so here are a few before and after shots of what I did to it.
There’s a pretty weird art show taking place in Fort Wayne, Indiana…
Several different companies have used my artwork to create custom vinyl wall coverings with. The one thing they all seemed to have in common? By the time the artwork was purchased, the printer printed it and the installers installed it, the final product seemed to end up being rather expensive.
Over the years, many churches have emailed me personally asking to purchase some of that Dennis Jones Bible Character “Wallpaper” …but sadly, no such product exists…
…but a church in Oklahoma was persistent when I told them no such product existed and together we figured out a more affordable “do it yourself” delivery vehicle for a vinyl “wallpaper”… FATHEAD… yes, those people that do the restickable vinyl football players.
We tried one as an experiment (Jonah) …it seemed to work pretty well, so we are moving forward with a few more. When their remodel is complete, I will get some photos of the finished rooms and post them here.
Who knows… Dennis Jones Custom Bible Wallpaper might be just around the corner! ha
I just got back home late last night after being on the road for three weeks. I’m currently working on several different projects for a bunch of interesting companies and I can’t tell you about any of it… other than to say there is a lot of really fun stuff currently in the works. Hopefully it will all make a grand appearance someday in the near future.
I recently had the opportunity to create illustrations for the walls of a really great church down in Memphis, Tennessee. They sent me photographs that mapped out all the appropriate wall dimensions. I imported those pictures into photoshop and roughly figured out what the different components would be for each illustration. After the wall ideas were approved, I executed the finished art and sent it to the printer. The illustrations were then printed out in sections and installed to the wall. Here are a series of pictures that show the Noah wall in progress.
