Hey everyone who has ordered DA prints before: Are lustre prints printed on heavier paper than matte or glossy prints? I keep having problems with seeing the printing info (the ID and print name that is printed on the back of the print) through the front of light colored prints (on both glossy and matte). Any suggestions?

I thought I would take a minute and explain what exactly this whole "Nerd Love" thing is that I am doing.

In an attempt to keep my collage skills from getting rusty and to keep myself art-motivated, I started this here Nerd Love project. Every week I will be making a new, nerdy collage - the goal is to post a new piece every Monday (although I expect there will be some weeks where life gets in the way). I always have ideas for fan-art but never really had a reason to make any, so this is me having fun with 52 of my favorite geeky, nerdy characters. Since this will be fan-art, I most likely will not be selling prints of any of these pieces - just the originals (some of which will be available in my online shop at

I will usually post them here on Mondays, but you can also see them on my blog:
I need to buy a new flat bed scanner to use for scanning my art. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good scanner that has good depth of field? I have a scanner on my printer, but it can't capture the depth of the collages.

I've been using an old Microtek i700 at work which works well but isn't available anymore.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
My boyfriend Evan is participating in Extra Life 2009 - a 24-hour video game marathon to raise money for pediatric cancer research at the Texas Children's Hospital.

Here is more information from Evan:

It's that time again...

On October 17th, I will be joining thousands of gamers worldwide to play video games for 24 hours to raise money for pediatric cancer treatment and research at Texas Children's Hospital.

Like last year, I will be dedicating my questionable vocal performances in Rock Band to those who donate. And you can pick your own song, provided I didn't do it last time.

Your tax-deductible donations will go to help this hospital continue to provide life-saving treatment for children from around the world. Last year, Extra Life raised more than $120,000 to help Texas Children's Hospital fight pediatric cancer. This year I think we can do even better. Thank you very much for your generosity.

Hey everyone! I just posted a bunch of pictures on my blog from my recent gallery show. I also kept a photo journal while I was getting ready for the show, so there are lots of "work in progress" shots as well.

This isn't necessarily art related, but it's cool, so I think that should count.

My boyfriend Evan is participating in the fundraising campaign EXTRA LIFE. It is a 24-hour video-game marathon which raises money for pediatric cancer research and treatment at the Texas Children's Hospital

Here is more information, from Evan:

"On October 18th, I will be participating in this event, in which thousands of gamers worldwide will play videogames for 24 hours to raise money for pediatric cancer treatment and research at Texas Children's Hospital.

To be honest, this is probably how I'd be spending my Saturday anyway, but now my laziness and fear of fresh air will be for a good cause.

Your tax-deductible donations will go to help this hospital continue to provide life-saving treatment for children from around the world. Thank you very much for your generosity."

Just a note to say that I have a bunch of new prints available in my shop!
Hey guys - Just wanted to let you know that I have a submission in at Threadless that needs votes.

My Submission
I recently became a member of a local art gallery and they've asked that I start matting my work. I have very little experience with matting (having only matted photos in my photography classes) so I was hoping you guys could answer a question for me. I'm not sure how to suspend my artwork in the mat. The art is on thick board so photo corners won't really work. I know that I can use linen tape, but I'm not sure the best way to apply it. Any suggestions would be mighty helpful.

In other news, I have a bunch of new art pieces nearly completed so I'll have new work up next week. :D

I have another question for you guys:

I'm trying to get some money together for a trip to Rome in March, and was thinking of selling original 8x10 collages on my etsy site. They'd be $45 plus S&H, and I just wanted to check and see if anyone would be interested in such a thing. I think some of the pieces are going to be fan-art collages (Hiro from Heroes, Cloud Strife, Pikmin, Blade Runner, and Bioshock) as well as some original pieces. I can also do commissions for the same price.
