  • Artist Spotlight - Anna Tillett

    What do you get when you mix food with fun, quirky and pure imagination?  Well, as artist Anna Tillett would describe her own works  as - "a hootenanny of all things cute and illustrated."

    Anna's artwork takes you to a world of sweet sensations and childhood memories that bring nothing but a smile to your face.  Her illustrations are so colorful and detailed, you can almost taste the sprinkles on the ice cream, smell the donut or hear the voice of the painted character with their cat eye glasses with a slight snobbish tone of voice.  Lets take a look of some of Anna's artwork that Prints on Wood has to offer - beware...can cause a slight appetite surge.

    Courtesan Au Chocolat

    Now this print is just too adorable. What you will find with Anna's prints is the humorous and human look on a food or animal form that adds a fun twist to your art collection.

    Thin MInt

    Calling all Girl Scouts or cookie lovers!  Yup, those Thin Mint cookies are just too hard to pass up.  This cool cookie radiates tastiness.

    Cotton Candy Carnie

    Carnie's soft spun hair just melts in your mouth.  One of Anna's quote's about her artwork is "Drawing cute stuff is serious business."  We could not agree more.

    Kiss Me

    Looking for a great Valentine's Day print?  We've got the perfect image for you.  I love how Anna's prints have the slight annoyed look in their eyes, which contradicts the sweetness they resemble.  There are so many prints to choose from with this artists, who could just choose one?

  • Vintage Prints - A Photo With A Story

    Photographs tell a story.  What the stories are, we may never know, however, we are intrigued by the uniqueness of the images and words they never speak. We have some great vintage photo art prints that would be great conversation pieces to add to your walls.

     

    Museum Wood Print

    This is a great photo image.  Its old, but yet the colors pop. You are drawn to the bold red doors and curious what is behind the glass. This photo image would look amazing in a room full of books or old antiques.

    Cut and Color Wood Print

    I can only imagine the conversations that took place here.  This haunting, yet quieting photo image makes you wonder...where did everyone go?  The bright lime green walls are downplayed by the subtle brown chairs and peeling paint from the walls which appears like confetti on the ground. If you enjoy the beauty of deserted, storytelling photos, this is a winner.

    El Cortez Wood Print

    Old buildings such as this have such stunning architecture.  Everything from the windows to the ledges are so impressive.  This image of the El Cortez hotel would hang beautifully by itself or in accompaniment with other images.  The El Cortez is a landmark hotel that was built in 1926 in San Diego and once was the tallest building in the city.  Now this is a picture that has many stories about it.

    No Vacancy Wood Print

    I love how this photo art image has the rough edges on it which gives it an old vintage look.  The block glass windows and color of the building draw you in.  Photo art can be fun, nostalgic, sad, youthful, angry, haunting, soothing and many other things.  The image may already have a story about it, or you can create a story with the images on your walls.

  • Artist Spotlight - Sugar Fueled

    Prints on Wood was recently visited by artist, Sugar Fueled/Michael Banks! Michael stopped by to personally sign each fine art piece we had printed. This piece is called Cream and is a limited edition fine art custom wood print that has already sold out.

Michael planted his roots as an artist over 22 years ago selling tattoo flash around the world and has since ventured in tattoos, clothing, music, street art, stencil pop art, sketch cards, children's stories and comics that have led him to the sweet world that he resides and paints in today. Michael's art has taken on adventures in every major city across the United States.  Lets take a look at some of the other adorable sweet and yummy prints that we have printed of Michael's artwork.

    Before Cream, there was Frosting.  

    Spooky is a Boo-tiful creation perched on top of a mound of yumminess.

    Lastly, there is Sprinkle.  Who wouldn't love this tempting sweet donut with the wide eyed kitty? 

    Sugar Fueled art pieces are great for all ages and play on the emotions of sweetness, innocence and playfulness.  Watch for the next edition from Sugar Fueled, they are a limited editions and sell out quickly.

  • Love For America

    It's July and its HOT!  With summer here its time to break out the grill, swimsuits, and sunscreen. We just recently celebrated 4th of July, but a patriotic theme can carry on all year through. Why not show your love for America with some patriotic prints from Prints on Wood?

    Vintage Red White and Blue Hot Air Balloon on Robins Egg Blue Wood Print

    We have things that range from being on the fun side like hot air balloons and Captain America shields. Both of these images are printed with our Bright White finish and will brighten up any room for kids or adults!

    Captain America shield Wood Print

    With prints on the other end of the spectrum; the kind of artwork that makes a political statement. Artist Ploid of "Stay Woke" (pictured below) says on his Facebook bio page that "It is my desire to break apart and examine our unconscious, assumed notions of interpersonal politics." This is definitely an artist that breaks away from the social "norm."

    Stay Woke Wood Print

    The Old Glory on Wood Print is unique in the way that it showcases the natural characteristics of the wood. Imagine this festive piece livening up your living room and bringing a little rustic charm to your home.

  • Artist Spotlight: Jeff Gillette

    You saw our new exclusive print right? The Disneyland Sign “Dead” print by Jeff Gillette? If you didn’t you should click this link right now and go check it out because each fine art wood print is hand numbered and signed by Gillette and … but don't wait, we only have a limited amount.

    Jeff Gillette paintings often examine the aesthetic structures and visual patterns of human settlement. He believes there is something great behind the obviously chaotic and desperate appearance of these places. Gillette also sees ironic and amusing juxtapositions that occur when Disney, corporate logos, and pop icons from consumer culture shows up as building blocks of shanty settlement construction.

    We have worked with Gillette before on another print you may have seen. The print was called, Castle Slum and also was a print that involved Disney. Unfortunately, this print is now sold out so if I were you, I would jump on the chance to purchase his new print before it sells out!

  • Artist Spotlight: Nick Walker

    I’m sure that you’ve seen at least one of our collaborations with artist, Nick Walker. We have had the pleasure of working with Walker a couple of times and each time has been amazing! If you didn’t know, Walker is one of the world’s best known street artists. He always tries to remain as innovative as possible while being modern and thought-provoking as well. His graffiti is a result of very controlled and intricate stenciling but he doesn’t forget to channel the high energy of graffiti as well!

    A couple years ago we had the honor of producing Walker’s piece, Painting the Town Red / Hong Kong Street Scene Two. Only 25 of these prints were produced! They were extremely limited and were highly desired because of the how highly sophisticated yet modern the print is. Not to mention, the print was signed by Walker himself!

    Recently, we had the opportunity to work with Walker once again! This exclusive print is called Vandal vs Louboutin. It is another extremely limited print with only 50 prints available! These prints are also signed by Nick Walker and are available on our site right now. Hopefully you’ll be able to snag one of these prints before they are gone forever!

  • Artist Spotlight: Isabel Samaras

    Time for another artist spotlight! Today we will be shining the light on artist, Isabel Samaras. Samaras has a unique talent of connecting her artwork to references of classic horror movies, ancient mythologies, cherished TV characters, tribal societies, and childhood fairytales. Through her artwork she gives fictional character life. She makes fictional desires into reality. How amazing, am I right?! Let’s go ahead and look at some of the work Samaras has done.

    Here at Prints on Wood we were lucky enough to work with Samaras on a first release for a limited print run of her painting, “Young Ferdinand”. This print was actually debuted at the Storybook exhibition at the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. The artwork itself was inspired by the children’s storybook, “The Story of Ferdinand” written by Munro Leaf. Unfortunately this lovely print was limited edition and is now sold out on POW. But don’t fret because we recently had the opportunity to work with Samaras once again on another great print.

    Now introducing.. “Planet of the Drapes”! This fun, saucy portrait by Samaras brings to life Dr.Zira from “Planet of the Apes” in an extremely stylish way! This portrait is an amazing to honor and reminisce the character who has been a part of the films since 1968.

    Don’t miss out on the chance to own your very own Samaras piece! We have them available on our site now. The print is produced at its actual size to ensure that every detail will be noticed. Not to mention, every print is signed by Samaras herself!

  • ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BUMBLEBEELOVESYOU

    With a namesake inspired by an inside joke amongst friends about a striped t-shirt from Hot Topic, BumbleBeeLovesYou decided to stop drawing indoors and went outside to start sharing his art with everyone, including YOU, who he apparently loves.

    While everyone is going around town trying to make a name for themselves by slapping bootleg Bart Simpson stickers on street signs, or wheatpasting heavy handed political posters on the side of electrical boxes, BumbleBeeLovesYou specializes in an wholesome style of street art… kids being kids doing kid stuff!

    BumbleBeeLovesYou is like the Bob Ross of street art. His artwork makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, that's why we're bringing him back to Air & Style this year. BumbleBeeLovesYou will be live painting a mural outside our booth, where we'll be giving away free mini wood prints of his work. Hope to see you there! Don't forget, we love YOU too. :P
