You've seen the woodcuts, now experience the first painting from the upcoming rerelease of the Wizard of OZ! Featuring all the main characters, and setting the tone for the book with rich greens and blues, I wanted to keep the charm and innocence of watching the movie when you were a kid, as well as bring in the darker tones of the original book--most of which was left out of the movie. You can own this bad boy by heading on over to the STORE and picking up a print. The original is also currently for sale as email@example.com for more information or for any questions.
Brand new art! Maximilian Dietrich was one of the first combat Zeppelin pilots in WWI, and also my son's bad ass name:) So here he is in a sci fi take complete with a rogue octopus who just doesn't like things flying around. (24" x 48" acrylic on canvas - for purchase please go to the STORE.) Enjoy!!
THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ! Custom woodcuts (and new paintings based off this timeless book on the way!)
We've all seen the movie, and if you haven't, then you haven't been born yet. The Wizard of OZ is one of the greatest books ever written, the movie is a classic, I have 2 kids, so it seemed logical that I might take a stab at illustrating it. Well, first off I'll need some inspiration, so I called up my buddy Isaiah Gordon, who based off my sketches, crafted these wonderful hand cut pieces for me to paint on. These are ONE OF A KIND, NO ART REPRODUCTION hand cut, hand painted woodcuts--and they be sweet!! Head on over to the STORE to check them out in detail, and of course all of the other woodcuts that we have to offer. I should be releasing the first painting as well in the next few weeks. Cheers!!! #wizardofoz #tinman #dorothygale #kansas #cowardlylion #scarecrow #wickedwitchofthewest
Brand spankin' new woodcut from Isaiah Gordon and myself - he cuts, I paint. 'Kriegsmarine Mermaid' is one bad salty sea bitch, and she's armed with her UBoat and her harpoon, for when it has to get up close and personal (and quite messy). She measures around 2ft x 2ft and is hand cut, sanded and painted.
Hop on over to the STORE to purchase this one of a kind piece!
Fingers Duke, the kick ass screen printers behind my t-shirts, have screened two new prints for me to release as a limited edition, super rare, let's fight over it like we are black friday Walmart patrons. First is a black and white print celebrating the 10 year anniversary of my book 'industriacide'. Not my first published book, that one came out when I was 15, but the first professional graphic novel I graced the world with, courtesy of Rorschach Ent. This print feartures Ernie and Schmaltz, two of the main characters, and is limited to 30 editions. Next is the special 6 color screened 'A Good Looking Planet', which Duke just released as a t-shirt at the Jet City Comic Show this past Nov. Limited to 12!!!! You can buy them in the store:
BUY: INDUSTRIACIDE 10 YEAR PRINT
BUY: A GOOD LOOKING PLANET
To kick off the immense amount of new artwork I will be slamming the netwaves with, we start with the brand new woodcuts from myself and Isaiah Gordon (cutter). He cuts, I paint, they rock! These are just the first few in a new line of art that allows me to express my artistic energy with the use of sawblades and powertools. These bad boys are for sale in the STORE section, and are 1 OF A KIND! There's no ART reproductions of them. The occasional shirt or pin might grace us, but there's no paper, wood, metal, or canvas prints of these. Once they are gone, there gone:) Oh, and if you think these are cool...wait until Feb at the CHAMPS show in Vegas to see what we are debuting!
1000 limited prints gone, but metal, wood and canvas available til Sun!
It's not quite the funeral of the year, but after 2 short years on this planet, the 1000 limited edition prints for the sexy Red Baroness are GONE! That's right, there's no more, and after Dec 7th (Anniversary of Pearl Harbor) she will be retired forever. So for the next few days you can get your METAL, WOOD, or CANVAS prints at http://www.conferoart.com/red-baroness/ . And if you use the coupon code: DEC2014 you'll get 20% off your order of her, or any of the other prints. After Sunday though, ol' Red will be gone forever! Thanks so much to all who supported her over the 2 years--I've never seen a piece of my art sell as fast, although the other tank girls are not far behind. Have a great holiday season!!
Sean Dietrich was born in Baltimore, MD and now resides in Anacortes, Wa--there was much in between.
