Every Day Original (small works, small prices)

everydayoriginal_vanessalemen

I am very excited to announce this new project. It’s been a labor of love, and we love art. We make it possible for everyone to be an art collector. You don’t need tons of wall space, and you don’t need tons of money. You just need good taste and our hand-picked roster of artists.

Every Day Original is a collaboration between Drawn + Drafted and our favorite illustrators. We help our artists post and sell original works to the growing market for small originals.

Cover image for Corel Painter Essentials 5

My name’s Lawrence. I’m a freelance Illustrator based in the UK. I was recently asked to both beta-test and create the cover image for Corel’s new awesome painting package Painter Essentials 5. It’s the small brother to their greatly powerful Painter 2015 which I also beta-tested. Both of these are great and this year is the first time I had used either. I have to say that they will certainly change the way I paint! I know this is sounding a bit like an ad’ for Corel but I can’t praise these guys highly enough for their hard work.

Anthony Amore, Chief Investigator and Director of Security at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (and author of “Stealing Rembrandts”), recently welcomed artist/illustrator Travis Simpkins as a new contributor to Stolen Cavalier: a website dedicated to Art Theft awareness. Stolen Cavalier is a dual effort, managed by Art Crime and Security experts: Mr. Amore in the United States and Vicky Oliveri in Australia. On the site, Mr. Amore said of Mr. Simpkins, “Travis Simpkins is a dedicated lover of art. He protects it at the Worcester Art Museum. He creates it in the form of an amazing portfolio of sketches ranging from portraiture to interpretations of important art objects. And he preserves it via a weekly mailing of then-and-now photos of the WAM that accumulated quite a following and garnered him a great deal of publicity.Now Travis joins me and Vicki Oliveri at Stolen Cavalier, contributing writings and images related to art theft. Welcome, Travis!”
