Now that Spectrum LIVE! has come and gone, the next convention on the horizon is Heroes Con!!! Out of Step Arts will be there in force with SIX OOSA artists in attendance (plus myself). Alexis Ziritt, Logan Faerber and Andrew MacLean are raising the money to make the trip by listing new art in the OOSA store and taking pre-con commissions that can be picked up at the show. So here is the deal: Andrew's rates 1 character small (9x12) $50 - b/w ink 1 character large (11x14) $65 - b/w ink 2 characters or huge 1 character (11x17) $75 - b/w ink

Logan’s rates 1 character small (9×12) $50 – b/w ink or $75 for watercolor 1 character large (11×14) $65 – b/w ink or $90 for watercolor 2 characters or huge 1 character (11×17) $75 – b/w ink or $100 for watercolor

If you're interested, let me know or feel free to contact them directly. For samples, check out some the new work they put up in the store. It should give you a pretty good idea of what they're offering.

Keep your eyes peeled for more art and news from other OOSA artists in the weeks leading up to Heroes Con next month.

Charles Vess & Greg Ruth Selling Art for a Good Cause

Charles Vess and Greg Ruth are both fantastic fellows! They were kind enough to contribute some art to the Princess and Pirate Art Exhibit I hosted on April 22nd as part of the fundraiser for the Bristol Regional Speech and Hearing Center. They have both extended that kindness by offering to donate a portion of the sales of the pieces in the exhibit to the BRSHC. Since most people couldn't travel to Bristol for the event, the art is now available to purchase online! Greg Ruth has listed several pieces he did for the book 'A Pirate's Guide to First Grade". You can see all of the those in the OOSA store. There are some copies of the out of print book included with some of the pieces, as well.

Charles Vess has agreed to let Out of Step Arts manage the sale of the pieces he contributed to the exhibit (Over 50!) for a limited time on behalf of himself and the BRSHC. I've set up a special gallery where you can view all of these pieces here on the OOSA site. Just click on each thumbnail to see the price and dimensions of the piece. If there is a dollar amount, the piece is still available for purchase.  If you see something you like, send me an email and we'll work out the details. Act fast though, because the Vess paintings will only be up until May 18th!

Getting great art while supporting a good cause. Does it get any better than that?

Can I help you find something?

I'm sure you all are aware of the OOSA store by now, right? The artists have a great sampling of some of their work available for sale there. I try to encourage the artists to send me new work to list there every once in a while so there are new choices for people looking to buy something.  In fact, Alexis Ziritt just put up a bunch of new stuff so he can pay to replace his recently deceased computer and make his way to some conventions (Spectrum and Heroes Con) this summer. But, did you know that pretty much all of the artists have more work available for sale than what's listed in the store? Paul Maybury, for example, has pretty much every page from every project he's ever worked on and he's looking to find it a new home so he can cover some recent unexpected expenses. Andrew, Logan, Toby and Greg, I'm sure, all have stuff they'd love to sell, too, that's not listed in the store. So how do you get your hands on all of this unlisted stuff? Just ask! If there is a specific page or an image you've seen from any of the OOSA artists that you want to own, just get in touch with me and I'll check and see if it's available. The worst I can say is "Sorry, it's already sold." And if you're looking for something really specific, several of the OOSA artists are open for commissions right now and would be happy to draw you whatever you're looking for.

The Princess and Pirate Art Exhibit is this Sunday

  SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!!!!

Yes, it's finally here. The Princess and Pirate Art Exhibit will be happening this Sunday as part of the Bristol Regional Speech and Hearing Center's fundraising event; The Princess and Pirate Tea Party. There will be several pieces from artists Greg Ruth and Charles Vess on display and for sale, along with signed books and prints. A portion of the sales will go to benefit the BRSHC (a 501(c)3 organization) and help them meet their service goals for the year.

I know that a lot of you may be interested in attending and helping support the cause, but you may live too far away. Don't worry! All of the pieces that are still available after the event will be made available for sale online in the Out of Step Arts store. And if any of the pieces are still left by the time Spectrum LIVE! rolls around, I'll bring them with me and you can purchase them there (booth # 903).

So, I hope to see you on Sunday at the Bristol Train Station. There's lots of fun to be had, lots of funds to be raised, and lots of great art to be seen.

The End is Near!

That’s right, the end of March marks the end of Paul Maybury’s 1/2 off sale. We are also going to be taking down Greg Ruth’s Secret Journeys of Jack London art at the end of the month, as well.  If you were waiting around, hemming and hawing, time is just about up!

Go to the OOSA store before it’s too late!

Stay tuned, though, because we are going to be announcing a sale on Alexis Ziritt's art soon.

A big week at OOSA: Sales and a new artist!

There is a lot going on at Out of Step Arts this week. Let's break it down. First thing, PAUL MAYBURY is going to be having a huge sale starting on Friday. Not only is he adding new art to the OOSA store, but he's also listing all of his art half off!!! And if that's not enough, he'll also be offering single character commissions for only $50.  The sale won't last for long, though. Just 2 weeks. Paul has had a run of bad luck with machines lately and needs to cover some expenses. So, look for the price changes to happen on Friday and act fast! I have a feeling things will sell out quickly.

Speaking of price changes, ALEXIS ZIRITT has reduced his commission prices to $60 for 11x17 inked pieces and $100 for 11x17 watercolor pieces. If you were waiting for a reason to get something from him, there it is. Expect to see some new art from Alexis in the store soon, as well.

TOBY CYPRESS has just added some copies of his graphic novel Rodd Racer in the store for just $5 (plus $3 for shipping)! These are the out-of-print and hard to find PunkRock Jazz Publishing versions with the  B/W pages. Each copy comes with an original sketch by Toby in it, too.

And finally, we're adding a new artist to the OOSA crew!!! Who is it, you ask? Well, our good friends at Heroes Aren't Hard to Find are going to help us make the announcement on their Heroes Con blog this week, so be sure you are either on their mailing list, or are following them on Twitter or Facebook so you are one of the first to know.

The Secret Journeys of Jack London art for sale

    Greg ruth has put several of the illustrations he did for The Secret Journeys of Jack London books ('The Wild' and the newly released 'The Sea Wolves') up in the store. Go take a look while they are still there! Greg has offered to send a signed hardcover copy of 'The Sea Wolves' to the first three people who buy one of the Jack London pieces priced at $100 or more, so they will probably move quickly.

Paul Maybury art for sale and commissions

Paul has added a bunch of art to the OOSA store, so go on over and take a look.  If you don't see exactly what you want, you have a couple of choices:

  1. If you are looking for a specific page or image, email me and ask about it.  If it's available, we can probably work something out.
  2. Get a commission.

That's right, Paul is open for commissions!  Black and white brush and ink pieces with one character is $80. It's an additional $50 per character.  A full 11x17 commission (includes background and digital colors) is $300. Now if you want something more elaborate, such a group shot or larger sized piece, those commissions will be arranged and priced on a case-by-case basis.

And as always, please take some time to check out the available art from the other OOSA artists. Part of the purpose of the collective is to expose fans of one artist to other artists' work. Everyone here has their own distinct style, but more than likely, if you dig Paul's art, you're going to like the other guys' as well.

Three Outlaw Samurai art goes back in the vault soon

If you were looking at Greg Ruth's THREE OUTLAW SAMURAI art and thinking you might like to get something, you had better do it soon.  We will be taking the art down from the OOSA store and putting it back in the vault in ONE WEEK!  That's right, after December 14th, your opportunity will have passed.  Fair warning to all of you fence-sitters and procrastinators.

A few things about art purchases

First of all, I wanted to let you know that I have updated the store to include new art by Andrew MacLean and Alexis Ziritt. It's great stuff available at even better prices, so please go take a look.  While your there, take a look at Toby Cypress' and Greg Ruth's work, too. Alright, now lets talk about some other things.

Commissions Currently, Alexis and Andrew are open for commissions.

  • Andrew is asking $50 for 11 x 14 inked single characters and $75 for 11 x 17 inked pieces with background or more than one character.
  • Alexis is asking $80 for 11 x 17 inked pieces and $130 for 11 x 17 watercolor pieces.
  • If you want something more complex from either artists, prices can be negotiated on an individual basis.

Payments Did you know that you can make payments on a lot of what we have in the store?  It's true! If you're eyeing something, but don't have the cash in hand, just email me and we'll see what we can work out.

Looking for something specific? Do you want a certain page/panel from one of these guys, but don't see it in the store? Just ask me about it. I'm happy to contact the artist to see if it's available. I've helped make quite a few sales this way, in fact.

The Out of Step Arts store is not supposed to be just a storefront; it's meant to be an interactive way to buy what you want from the OOSA artists.  Have a question? Ask me. Need something? Tell me what you're looking for.  I'm here to help.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!! I'm going to be listing new art in the store from Alexis, Toby and Greg at 3pm EST on Sunday.  Here's what you can expect to see from each artist.

  • Alexis will be putting up the pages from his Tijuana Bible Peligro Supremo that he made for last year's Heroes Con.

So, stay tuned folks, and remember: 3pm EST on Sunday.

Website and store updated

Whew!  I think I finally have the website how I want it and I've added artist bios for Alexis Ziritt and Greg Ruth to the "Collective".  I hope you'll take some time to check them out and read about those two.  They are good guys.  I've also added 11 pieces of Greg Ruth's art to the store.  There are some Freaks of the Heartland, Conan: Born on the Battlefield, and for the first time on the internet, some pages from Sudden Gravity! Since I'm just starting out and I new to all of this, if you see any mistakes, have any recommendations or want to see something specific, please feel free to let me know about it.  And please, please, PLEASE spread the word about Out of Step Arts.  The overall goal of this little venture is to provide more exposure to the artists that are involved.  The more people that know about Out of Step Arts, the better.

I'm still working hard to bring in a few more artists and get more art in the store.  I'll provide updates as they  occur.

Cheers!

Art from personal collection for sale (soon)

I'm going to be selling some art from my personal collection in the next few days to 1) help out with start-up costs associated with Out of Step Arts and 2) give the online store a test run.  I'll send out a notice when I have it all up and ready, but here are some of the artists that will be listed: George Pratt Francis Vallejo Erik Jones and others (maybe)

I'm still working on filling in the content on my website.  I'm not very wordy in general, so everything is pretty short and sweet.  I guess that's alright though since you're here to look at art, not read what I have to say.  Right?
