    Ghostbusters (1984) was a movie that about a few guys who got kicked out from their University, and became ghostbusters for a living. The Ghostbusters community has created a documentary called "Ghostheads" to share the Ghostbusters fandom around the world. These Ghostheads have traveled around the world meeting fans, visiting hospitals, and raising money for charities.

    On Friday, October 30, 2015, there will be The No Ghost Logos Charity event held in Burbank curated by our good friend Chogrin. There will be an art gallery and an appearance of Sean Bishop's ECTO 1 replica. Chogrin has brought together 30 artists from around the world to interpreted the "No Ghost" logo in their own style. The No Ghost Logos Charity event will have an art show at the "Creature Feature Art Gallery" displaying all of their pieces from 7-9 PM. This event is a tribute and fundraiser for Michael C. Gross, the creator of the famous Ghostbusters logo. Gross has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and they wanted to dedicate this event to him in appreciation of the huge impact he has made on the Ghostbuster film and history. Michael C. Gross is extremely passionate about art and really appreciates the Ghostbusters community.

  • The Perfect Wooden Anniversary Gift

    Giving gifts for special occasions have always become a tradition whether it is for a birthday, celebration, or anniversary. The best types of gifts are those that are given from the heart. People tend to appreciate and love gifts more when a lot of thought and consideration has been put into it and it resembles something important to their relationship. Over any materialistic item, a gift with sentimental value will win over anyone's heart.

  • Totem by Joe Ledbetter Release

    Totem by joe ledbetter prints on wood_animated_

    Extremely creative and talented artist, Joe Ledbetter, is an illustrator and toy designer who has created multiple pieces influenced by animation, underground comics, and 1980's video games. His pieces all share a unique style of bright colors, distinct lines and interesting animated creatures. He aims to incorporate human attributes and personalities to his fictional characters.

    Totem prints on wood release

    He has created over 100 different toys that all display unique humanly personality traits. For example, Ledbetter has created a "Lava" characters series that depicts the primal part of humans. He was inspired by the idea of when things of this world are destroyed, they often lead to new opportunities and beginnings, similarly to when Lava destroys large land masses; however, it's a natural disaster that needs to happen in order for life to thrive. He states, "Sometimes, in order to create you must destroy. Tear it all down and start anew."

  • Ron English - "Kiss Teletubbies" Release

    We are really excited about our first release with New York artist Ron English titled, "KISS Teletubbies".  Last week he stopped in to sign the prints before heading off to Mark Ryden and Marion Peck's Surrealist Ball - Baby Tattooville 9.  This print was originally a photograph of his young boys that he transformed into a colorful art piece years ago.  It seemed like a perfect piece to print on wood!

    ronenglish_signing

    As an American contemporary artist who specializes creating a twist on brand imagery and advertising, his work has become extremely well known.  We were first introduced to Ron's paintings thru the popular documentary "Super-Size Me" but since then he has produced art books, designed toys, created artwork for movies, and street art pieces.

    The weekend continued at the Baby Tattooville event where we were able to see Ron and the other featured artists paint the Art Jam piece.  The large collaborative painting that is created by the attending artists thru the weekend. The last few minutes of the Art Jam was a fervor of activity as everyone made the final touches on their parts, which was so awesome to watch!

  • Summer Tour of New York Murals

    A quick summer trip to New York would not be complete without a walk around SOHO and Little Italy in search of the murals from a few of our favorite artist.

    Prints on Wood in Little Italy New York

    After a few bites to eat in Greenwich Village headed over to SOHO and ran into a mural in process by New York local Soft Circle.  After a quick chat and Instagram exchanges he was back to work.

    Just a few blocks away we spotted a little Vandalism by Nick Walker peeking around a corner.

    Little Italy was so colorful already, but this beautiful mural by Tristan Eaton of Audrey Hepburn was still a standout.

    No tour of New York murals could be complete without spotting at least one Buff Monster mural, and we did.

    It never fails to make me hungry for ice cream!

    We almost passed by a mural by Shepard Fairey but thankfully our son caught sight of it before it was too late. It is so elegant it blends in well with the surroundings.

  • Animals on Wood

    Trouble deciding between a wood print or a developed photo? This may help you.

    birds_Printsonwood

    Most of the time, our customers like using our wood printing services because it gives a nice and natural touch to their image. Developed photos are nice; however, a photo printed onto a wood base not only is different, but it also give life to the photo because wood in itself is a natural resource.

    dogs_printsonwood

    We've noticed that animal images are very popular amongst our customers. We've seen birds, bunnies, dogs, cats and much more. Animal wood prints are a great idea because it allows the animal to look more alive in comparison to a regular framed photo. Our customers also like to take the sentimental route and print photos of their own pets. Below are a few examples of our animal wood prints.
