New Note Card Category and Vendor

Recently we were approached regarding CSA (Confederate States of America) note cards.  Over time, some images relevant to this theme have been captured, but not added to our catalog – until now.  A new gallery page was created in September of 2013, but it is not indexed on the website.  If you’re interested in this topic, you can find the gallery and place your orders here.

New Cards for Dallas and Fort Worth

As part of a recent commercial assignment, I spent some time out photographing both Dallas and Fort Worth at night – something I’ve been needing to get back to for some time.  As a result, I assembled a collection of images I needed to construct new cityscapes.

You can order these in note cards from our note card page.  You can also order them in any print size from 16×20 up to wall size by simply emailing me your requirements (if you’d like a signed copy) or head on over to our fulfillment site and place your order for prints there.

Check out our Texas Note Card page for the complete selection of images.

 

No, this does not exist in nature.  These images are composites.

The 2013 Dallas cityscape includes a sunrise sky with the Texas flag ghosted in, a full moon, the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava and the Perot Museum.  the BofA building outlined in green argon, Fountain Place, Reunion Tower and the Omni Hotel are all prominently featured in this compilation.

New Flora and Fauna Note Cards Added

Since it’s Bluebonnet season here in The Lone Star State, it seemed like a good time to both shoot some new material – and create note cards from some archival images.  As a result, we’ve uploaded 7 new images of Bluebonnets and assorted Texas wildflowers to the Flora and Fauna page.  In addition, we’ve finally posted a Yellow Rose!

New Cards from Our “Winston Says” Series

Our acerbic baby Mockingbird (also just happens to be the State bird of Texas) has been busy expanding his vocabulary lately.  As a result, we have several new entries in the Holiday Greeting Card series.  Just released today is the “Don’t Mess With Texas card.

Go to our Greeting Card page to order all of these priceless cards.  We will also be producing prints and posters (likely T-shirts) of these in the near future.

Check ‘em out:

SignZ of Our TimeZ NoteCard Page Added

Over the last several years, we’ve traveled extensively and collected a lot of images for the master collection.  In this process, I’ve added a lot of historic, architecturally significant and amusing signs to the collection.  In recent months I started processing each image with a consistent, classic aged theme to amplify the natural character of these classic slices of Americana.  This evolved into the SignZ of Our TimeZ collection, which you can now purchase in gallery-quality giclee format Fine Art note cards.

In this collection, we have some classic theater marquees, aging edifices and more often than not, the only remaining “sign” of once-prosperous establishments that have fallen victim to time and economy.

This is also the first gallery where you can enlarge the images by clicking on each thumbnail.

With that said, I give you: SignZ of Our TimeZ

New Additions to Texas Note Cards

A few new images were added to the library this morning.  Some from recent shoots and some that had simply fallen through the cracks.

In the Texas Oddities section, we added Texas Nessie and Stonehenge II.

And then…

Just because May 13, 2012 produced some of the most amazing cloud formations I’ve ever seen in all the years I’ve lived in Texas, this next image was added to the Scenic Texas section:

Calatrava Bridge Note Cards Added

The most requested image at the Deep Ellum art show last month was the Margaret Hunt Hill (Calatrava) bridge that now spans the Trinity River.  Something I had been meaning to shoot for some time, but just did not have the “right” conditions when I had the time to shoot.

So finally last week, I decided I was shooting no matter the conditions and would just tweak the images to my liking.

We will be distributing these to our dealers shortly and have plenty on hand for our upcoming art shows: May 18-20 Grapevine, Texas and Memorial Day Weekend – Granbury, Texas.

We have one panoramic shot that is very dramatic and ethereal titled “Oz”

And then we have the much more “standard” version of this iconic gateway, titled “Calatrava Reunion” with Reunion Tower framed by the cables of the Calatrava Bridge.
