Sweet Feast (1024 x 1024)

Sweet Feast at the House of Pink Delights

I’m very pleased to announce a brand new limited edition print release, Sweet Feast at the House of Pink Delights, added just this morning to my Etsy shop! Featuring dozens of happy little kewpie heads waiting their turn to be boiled up in a delectable stew of ice cream and cake, served table-side to gleeful diners anticipating an unparalleled delicacy of sweetness and joy.

Mmmmm! Mmmmm! Good!

Each image has been professionally printed on heavy weight glossy paper using archival inks to bring out bold, rich blacks, and strong vibrant colors. I could not be more pleased with the quality of each and every print!

Here’s the scoop:

Paper Size:  16 x 20″
Image Size:  8.4 x 18″
Edition Size:  100
Priced at $80 each

Personally, this is one of my all-time favorite pieces, so much so that I use it as the banner for both my Facebook page and Etsy store, so it seemed only natural to finally release it was a signed limited edition print.

More information is available on Etsy, right… here!

Isn’t it about time I release a new print? Maybe one of the landscape images from Tales from the Vinyl Dimension? Of course it is! Well then, just in time for the frantic madness of the holiday shopping season…

She who creates Good Fortune, one of the most popular images from my summer show, is now available in a fine art edition of 40 prints, on high quality, heavyweight, Hahnemuhle photo rag paper! Each 19×13″ print (the image itself is 12×9″) comes signed and numbered, along with a certificate of authenticity and a limited edition exhibition card. If you’re nice I may also throw in one my extremely limited Frankenstein stickers (as supplies last, of course).

This may be my best print release yet, and the images look great!

More info about the print can be found in my Etsy store, and if you’re interested in the process behind the creation of the photo, here’s a link to my behind-the-scenes blog post.

Spirit PrintShe who creates Good Fortune — $125 available now!

But wait! There’s more!
The little elves in the Wind-up Dreams workshop have been very hard at work creating an incredible array of gifts designed around the portrait panels that were on display in Tales from the Vinyl Dimension including mugs, buttons, watches, mouse pads, coasters, iPhone cases, and a bazillion other things. Yes, they are exhausted little overworked elves, but as long as we continue to feed them candy corn and marshmallow peeps they seem to remain happy and productive. You can see the full lineup of gifts in the Portrait store on Zazzle.

But wait, there’s still more!
Finally, I’d be completely remiss were I not to remind you that original 12×12″ portrait panels from Tales from the Vinyl Dimension remain available, along with a wide range of limited edition prints, album editions, and postcards.

Plastic Prophets of Vinyl Redemption — Deluxe Edition

I’ve posted from time to time about the digital coffee table book of my photograph, Plastic Prophets of Vinyl Redemption, which was released this past summer, exclusively for Apple’s family of iOS devices. Creating the book was tons of fun, and I’ve been very pleased with the reception the book has received from the ebook community.


Being a collector of books (and toys, and records, and art, and CDs, and devils, and, and, and…) I remain completely enamored of objects I can touch and relate to in ways that will never be matched by the bits and bytes trapped within a digital device. What can I say? I like the feel of a book in my hands, and there are great untold mysteries in slipping a sleeve from a big, beautiful album cover and reading the liner notes as black vinyl spins beneath the soft touch of a diamond stylus. Real books feel special. They smell like knowledge.

While I’m very proud of my digital book, and I’ve been quite excited to see how people have enjoyed flipping and zooming through the colorful pages on the iPad, I still wanted to produce a physical object that people could turn in their hands, explore, and connect with in ways that are difficult to mimic in a digital book.

And, so…

Over the past couple of months I’ve been hard at work creating a deluxe edition of Plastic Prophets, and I’m very excited to announce that the package is now available!!

Deluxe Edition box with cover photo printed on glass!

The Deluxe Edition comes packaged in the box you see on the right. Each wooden box is hand painted, signed and numbered, with a cover image that’s been printed on beveled glass and mounted to the lid. Inside are all kinds of collectable treasures you couldn’t possibly replicate in a purely digital release. The highlight is a 32 page full color “mini book” featuring many of the standout images from the digital book—here, reconfigured to be printed and bound in a limited softcover edition.

Hidden away in the box are other printed goodies, including a Plastic Prophets sticker, a Wind-up Dreams web card (randomly selected from a dozen different designs), and a signed, miniature, Certificate of Authentication.

Want a little more?

You’ve got it!

Your new best friend inside the luxurious Deluxe Edition box!

Lift the glass cover and inside the deluxe box you’ll find your very own kewpie doll, just like those you see in my photos! Your kewpie comes direct from Japan, and wears around its neck a miniature flash drive filled with a host of exclusive digital content.

The drive holds two digital versions of Plastic Prophets of Vinyl Redemption. The first is exactly the same as the digital ebook available on Apple’s iBookstore and compatible with the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. And just in case you don’t have access to one of those devices, the flash drive includes the full 135 page book as a PDF that can be viewed on any personal computer.

iPad users will find another added bonus on the flash drive: 95 custom wallpaper images pulled from the pages of the book to give your iPad a custom Wind-up Dreams look that will be the envy of all your friends! Kewpies, bathing beauties, robots and presidents. They’re all on the flash drive to brighten your electronic day.

So what are you waiting for? Click on over to the Wind-up Dreams & Vinyl Nightmares Etsy shop for more information!

Another Records Store Day has come and gone, and the euphoria of an early morning standing in line to buy mystery vinyl is now replaced by melancholy and nostalgia, as the next Record Store Day is now a year away.

But that’s okay…

Because, now, I get to listen to all of my great finds!!  And if that wasn’t enough, my own personal celebration of Record Store Day continues through the weekend, as I’m offering every item in my Etsy photography shop (postcards! album editions! limited editions!) at 20% off through Monday to anyone who uses the coupon code VINYL.  Originally, the sale was to be limited to only my Twitter followers, but since my blog is still barely out of the womb and I’m all caught up in Record Store Day euphoria, how can I deny discounts to those of you who have recently found me in Blogland? Simply, I cannot… so you get the discount too, and you don’t even have to follow me on Twitter!

(shut up John… tell us all about Records Store Day)

My first stop was M-Theory Music in Mission Hills where music fans had begun lining up an hour and a half before the doors were to open.  When I arrived the line stretched to the end of the block.  The likelihood of getting any of the most coveted exclusive releases was slim, so when 10AM hit I started with the sidewalk sale of used CDs and LPs, and bought 3 LPs for $1.50 that will likely appear in a future photo.  By the time I checked out the line was only a dozen or so people out the door, so I patiently waited my turn to venture inside and browse.

Above is a shot of the scene inside the store, with most of the action in the back right corner of the store where all the Record Store Day exclusives were going very, very fast. I picked up the Bruce Springsteen live 10″ EP recorded inside the carousel building in Asbury Park.  I got a free Sub Pop sampler and grabbed a bunch of CDs from the likes of the Dum Dum Girls, LCD Soundsystem, Lady Dottie & The Diamonds, Superchunk, Animal Collective, Captain Beefheart, Girls, and Ella Fitzgerald (3 CD mini book for $11.99!!).  M-Theory was also bagging everyone’s purchases in a cool little purple shoulder bag from Kanine Records (yes, there are white silkscreened dogs on the front).

Next stop?  Record City, just a couple of miles away in Hillcrest.  The store opened at 11 and when I drove by at 11:15 the line to get in was still 20 or 30 people long.  This put me in a bit of a panic, as there is NOWHERE to park in Hillcrest on a Saturday morning.  I shamefully parked in the “customer only” lot at Whole Foods , walked in the front door, lingered, then snuck out the side (sorry Whole Foods!) and headed over the Record City.

Here’s a shot from just outside the front door.  The customers on the right are making their way by all the exclusive releases, while the line on the left is the s-l-o-w line to checkout.  Record City wasn’t quite as picked over as M-Theory and I bought a red vinyl 7″ double A-side from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Ramones, a white vinyl 10″ of B-sides from Black Angels, a 120 gram vinyl LP of Foo Fighter rarities, a Built To Spill picture disc 45, a limited live CD from The Decemberists, a CD from The Ravonettes, and a couple of vintage vinyl LPs for future photos.

No free bag at Record City, but they were providing pizza, Twinkies and Monster energy drinks.

Here’s hoping everyone reading had a Happy Record Store Day!
